The AJ-PX230 is a P2HD handheld camera recorder with AVC-ULTRA recording and built-in microP2 card slots. In addition to the established AVC-Intra100, the AJ-PX230 has AVC-LongG for extended recording and the optional AVC-Intra200 codec for master level recording offering a wide range of choice. This handheld camera features two built-in microP2 card slots with simultaneous recording functionality and an especially designed multipurpose compact zoom lens.
The AJ-PX230 covers both low-bit rate and high-bit rate recording thanks to its inherent support of the AVC-ULTRA codec family. The AVC-LongG25 enables extended 1920 x 1080 10 bit 4:2:2 broadcast-quality recording (four times longer than AVC-Intra100). The AJ-PX230 also supports DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 as standard for SD recording and DVCPRO HD, AVC-Intra 50, AVC-Intra 100 along with the new AVC-LongG12, G25 and G50 as standard for HD recoding. For even higher quality recording, the AJ-PX230 supports the visually lossless AVC-Intra 200 codec, as an option for master quality all in one compact handheld camera.
Additional features of the camera include a newly designed built-in compact 22x zoom lens which covers a wide range from 28mm to 616mm (35mm camera equivalent). The three lens rings for Cam-Type Zoom, Focus and Iris operation provide comfortable manual control similar to that of interchangeable lenses. The newly developed high-sensitivity and low-noise 1/3 type 3MOS sensors produce superb image quality, even in dim light.
Two microP2 card slots enable cost-effective operation. With the same reliability as the P2 card, the microP2 cards can be used without an adapter for either relay recording, when one card is full the AJ-PX230 seamlessly switches to the second card to continue recording; or simultaneous recording, where the same codec is recorded on to both cards at the same time for backup use. The microP2 slots can be used with standard SD cards for even greater efficiency when recording*3 codec’s with 50Mbps or less.
The AJ-PX230 has all the A/V connections you would expect on a professional camera, including SD/HD/3G-SDI output and HDMI. The AJ-PX230 has two 3 pin XLR audio inputs; one in front behind the microphone mount for easy connection to an external mic and one at the rear side of the camera.
The ergonomic design of the AJ-PX230 sees the common video and audio connections mounted on the side of the camera, keeping them out of the way when cables are connected. When it comes to control layout, the low weight and well balanced AJ-PX230 takes many of its inspirations from the professional shoulder mount style cameras. White balance and video gain control toggle switches are positioned easily to hand under the lens and an audio fader control and record start/stop are located at the front of the camera
