Combined with the high-sensitivity, low-noise, 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel ULT (Ultra Luminance Technology) 3MOS image sensor, it enables high-quality recording of Full-HD (1920 x 1080), 10 bit, 4:2:2 full sample broadcast-level images.
In addition to covering a wide range, from wide-angle to telephoto, the lens is provided with three rings – a cam-type zoom ring, a focus ring and an iris ring – for the same kind of manual operation that you get with interchangeable lenses.
The AG-HPX250 also features GENLOCK input and TC input/output for synchronizing multiple cameras. Together with HD SDI output, this provides smooth operation in a live relay and recording system for multi-camera broadcasting and production work.
A variable frame rate (VFR) function for slow-motion and quick-motion images, and a cine-like gamma setting also bring versatile expression to all kinds of image production.
