As the next generation of 4K camcorders, the AG-CX350 expands the usability of the handheld camcorder beyond conventional news gathering and recording applications to meet a wide range of professional needs.
The lens of the AG-CX350 has the industry’s widest angle of 24.5mm*1 and allows recording of wide-angle images with minimal distortion, without the use of a conversion lens. The optical 20x zoom covers up to 490mm telephoto in all modes. Furthermore, the i.Zoom enables seamless zooming of up to 32x in HD or up to 24x in UHD with no degradation in resolution. The AG-CX350 also comes with digital 2x/5x/10x zoom.*2
The AG-CX350 features HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)*3 which achieves a wide dynamic range on HDR-compatible TV monitors. The gamma mode can be selected from eight modes (HD, SD, FILMLIKE 1, FILMLIKE 2, FILMLIKE 3, FILM-REC, VIDEO-REC, HLG).
New High-Definition, High-Sensitivity 1.0-type 15M MOS Sensor
The newly developed 1.0-type MOS (approximately 15,030,000 pixels) offers a shallow depth of field and excellent balance between image quality and sensitivity. It supports multi-formats, such as UHD (3840 x 2160), HD and SD, and provides images without cropping in all modes. This MOS sensor also boasts high sensitivity of F12 (60Hz) / F13 (50Hz) (in both UHD and HD in High Sensitivity mode).
Superb 4K image with 10bit codec up to 50/59.94p without cropping
New HEVC Codec for High-Image-Quality 10bit UHD/50p/59.94p Recording at Low Bit Rate
The camcorder can record UHD/50p/59.94p videos in high-image-quality 10bit on an SD memory card. It also features a new, high-efficiency HEVC codec (LongGOP, 10bit, 4:2:0, MOV) .
10bit Variable Frame Rate (VFR) without Cropping
In UHD, variable frame rate (VFR) recording at 1fps to 50fps is possible. In FHD, super-slow shots can be realized at a maximum of 100fps. Both provide high-quality 10bit, full-frame pictures with no image area cropping even at high frame rates.
- MOV/AVCHD/P2 MXF* File Formats Supported
- Freeze Frame (Still Image Capture)
- Double Memory Card Slots Improve Recording Reliability
* Future support by a firmware version upgrade for recording onto microP2 cards.
Enhanced network connectivity for ‘live’
RTMP/RTSP-Compatible HD Streaming
The AG-CX350 can be used for live coverage of concerts and sports events as well as for live streaming of breaking news. Facebook, YouTube, and other streaming services are supported.
Easy IP Connection: Preinstalled NDI | HX*4
The industry’s first camcorder equipped with NDI | HX mode*4, it allows video transmission and camera control via IP connection, without using an external converter. The camera can be built in to larger systems working alongside Panasonic PTZ camera systems equipped with NDI | HX and the Live Production Center AV-HLC100.

*1: In 35mm equivalent. The AG-CX350’s wide 24.5mm angle is the widest in the industry for UHD/FHD (16:9). In the segment of camcorders with integrated lens, the Panasonic AG-UX180 achieved the industry’s widest angle of 24mm in UHD/24p (17:9). For UHD/HD (16:9), 25.4mm is the widest angle in the industry. (Both as of January 2019, according to a Panasonic survey)
*2: When using the digital zoom, picture quality degrades as the magnification rate increases
*3 The HLG specification was developed jointly by Japanese broadcaster NHK and the BBC in the UK. It is defined in ARIB STD-B67 and ITU-R BT.2100.
*4 NDI: Network Device Interface, a technology of NewTek, Inc.. Industry’s first camcorder to support NDI | HX. As of January 2019 (according to a Panasonic survey). To use this function, an activation keycode from NewTek is required.
