Panasonic AK-HC5000 HD Studio Handy Camera with LEMO CCU Connector is a professional, multi-format camera. That captures HD and SD video using three 2/3″ MOS sensors. It features a B4 mount. Also, which allows you to use virtually any 2/3″ format ENG lens. The camera can capture at NTSC or PAL broadcast compatible frame rates. It captures images at up to 59.94 fps and features a hi-speed mode that allows you to capture at 239.76 or 200 fps depending on what signal format you are shooting.
A variety of image controls allow you to adjust the image quality. With such high-performance functions as dynamic range stretch, cine gamma curve, skin tone detail correction. Also, independent servo-controlled ND and CC filter wheels provide creative opportunities to handle a wide variety of shooting conditions. A LEMO connector enables an optical fibre cable connection to an optional CCU that increases the camera’s flexibility.
The rolling shutter artefacts common to MOS sensors have been reduced. By reading out the MOS sensor signal at high speed. In addition, using a camera-signal-processing LSI high-precision flash band detection and compensation function, Panasonic was able to eliminate the flash band phenomenon (light and dark areas appearing in the same frame) that occurs when a flash goes off during shooting.
The AK-HC5000 camera system is able to record 1080p at up to 239.76 fps when recording in NTSC compatible (60 Hz) mode, or 200 fps when recording in PAL compatible (50 Hz) mode. Further, depending on your playback frame rate (59.94/50/29.97/25/23.98) this translates into between 4 and 10x slow motion. Please note that additional equipment (not included) is required to record the high-speed video.
This feature engages an algorithm to compensate for the chromatic aberration of select lenses, allowing the camera to capture sharper images with reduced chromatic aberration.
