The AJ-PX230 is a P2HD handheld camcorder with AVC-ULTRA recording and integrated microP2 card slots. In addition to the established AVC-Intra100 codec, the AJ-PX230 integrates AVC-LongG for extended recordings and the optional AVC-Intra200 codec for master recordings with a wide range of options. This handheld camcorder integrates two microP2 card slots with simultaneous recording functionality and a compact lens with multipurpose zoom of special design.

The AJ-PX230 encompasses recordings at both high and low bit rates thanks to inherent compatibility with the AVC-ULTRA codec family. The AVC-LongG25 codec allows quality recordings for expanded broadcast of 1920 x 1080, 10 bits and 4: 2: 2 (four times higher than the AVC-Intra100). The AJ-PX270 also supports DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 as standard for SD recordings as well as DVCPRO HD, AVC-Intra 50, AVC-Intra 100, along with the new compression methods AVC-LongG12, G25 and G50 as standard for HD recordings . For even higher quality recordings, the AJ-PX230 supports the AVC-Intra 200 codec without visual loss, as an option for a compact, all-in-one master-quality handheld camera.

Superior image quality: high sensitivity and high quality sensor

Additional features of the camcorder include a compact newly designed 22x zoom lens, which covers a wide range of focal lengths, from 28mm to 616mm (equivalent to a 35mm camera). The three lens rings for camera, focus, and iris type zoom modes provide manual control similar to interchangeable lenses. The new 3MOS 1/3 low noise, high sensitivity sensors generate superior image quality, even in dim light conditions.

Super-economic operation

Two slots for microP2 cards allow cost-effective use. With the same reliability as P2 cards, microP2 can be used without an adapter for recording in continuous mode; When a card is full, the AJ-PX230 dynamically selects the second to continue with recording, or for simultaneous recording, when the same codec is recorded on both cards at the same time to create a backup copy. The microP2 card slots can be used with standard SD cards to further increase efficiency when recording * 3 codecs with 50 Mbps or less.

Professional results for flexible filming

The AJ-PX230 integrates all the audiovisual connections you would expect from a professional camera, including the SD / HD / 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs. The AJ-PX230 integrates two XLR audio inputs with three connectors; one on the front, behind the microphone, for easy connection to an external microphone and another on the back of the camera.

New ergonomic design, compact and intuitive

The ergonomic design of the AJ-PX230 maintains the common video and audio connections on the side of the camera, so they do not get in the way when many cables are connected. As for the distribution of the controls, the lightweight and balanced AJ-PX230 is inspired by many of the characteristics of professional shoulder cameras. The white balance switching and video gain switches are easily placed by hand under the lens and an audio dimming control and a recording start and stop control are included in the front of the camera.
