Posted by admin | Comments are off for this article

Featuring a classic handheld form-factor and offering 10-bit, 1080p AVC-Intra and AVC-LongG recording up to 60 fps, the Panasonic AJ-PX230 is ready to fit the bill for a wide range of applications, including professional broadcast, documentary, and ENG work. The camera utilizes 1/3″-type 3MOS sensors that support a 600% dynamic range level to capture expanded highlight and shadow detail for more film-like images and post-production flexibility. Adding to the camera’s versatility is multi-codec support, including the high-quality AVC-Intra200 codec, and variable frame-rate shooting for in-camera slow-motion and fast-motion effects.

From the above list, we can learn that Panasonic AJ-PX230 can generate MXF recordings in AVC-Intra and DVCPRO HD codec. While, when you want to import AJ-PX230 MXF P2 files in FCP for editing, you will get frustrated due to the video codec incompatibility problem. As we know, Final Cut Pro most compatible format is Apple ProRes, FCP does not support direct editing of AVC-Intra in the timeline. What’s more, although Final Cut Pro can support DVCPRO HD codec, you will meet some stuttering problem when playing the Panasonic AJ-PX230 P2 MXF footage in Final Cut Pro X/7/6 on Mac.
