Excellent back of room or studio camera

The low light performance of our HPX 370 Camera rentals, exhibit the high sensitivity and great image of the big brother 3100’s at a lower cost. And now the sensitivity that is characteristic of the interlace mode is possible in the progressive mode with Panasonic’s Progressive Advanced Processing (P.A.P.), a 3D adaptive processing technology. We shoot with these cameras and our Mini Flypacks in our Studio and on location, and have never been less than totally satisfied with the images.

Scene File Dial

Adjust this dial for an instant set of shooting conditions. Six preset files are provided, and you can change any of the six file names and their settings as desired. You can also store and load the settings to and from an SD card. We have these available with your rental. This way all three cameras are setup and matched perfectly in minutes.

Slow, Synchro and High-Speed Shutter

The shutter speed can be set between 1/6.25 second on the slow end in 50Hz mode (1/6 second in 59.94Hz mode) and 1/2000 second on the fast end. Used with the variable frame rate function, this allows you to create a blurring effect or crystal-clear stop-motion of sports action. The AG-HPX370 series also features a synchro scan function for capturing screen shots from a computer monitor.

AVC-Intra Codec

The HPX370 HD Camera rentals offer AVC-Intra codec recording. It allows recording in either of two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-pixel HD (1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720) images, or AVC-Intra 50 for low-bit-rate, low-cost operation. AVC-Intra is a great new codec that we have fully embraced here at ICV. If you do any encoding for the web you’ll apprecaite this codec.
It complies with the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 international standard based on advanced image compression technology, and offers both superb image quality and highly efficient compression. The HPX370 also supports the conventional DVCPRO HD codec.

Fast Workflow with P2 and Firewire

The P2 recording capabilities offer reliable, large-capacity, high-speed card recording and a number of advanced functions, such as:
Immediate Startup and Better Data Protection
Clip Thumbnail Function
Text Memo (Bookmark) for Simple Editing
SD/SDHC Card Slot
16:9 / 4:3 Aspect Ratio Conversion
Optional Proxy Data Recording


HD/SD-SDI Output Terminals and Down-Converter
USB 2.0 Interface
IEEE 1394 Interface
TC IN, TC OUT, and GENLOCK IN Terminal

The HPX370 can be used with 1/3″ to 2/3″ lens adapters for use with existing 2/3″ zoom and prime lenses. The camera offers a broad range of creative features including variable frame rates, Cine film-like gamma, Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC), built-in scan reverse, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) function, waveform and vector scope display and focus assist tools. The HPX370 also comes equipped with flash band detection and compensation software built-in for improved CMOS performance.

Our rentals include lens, viewfinder, tripod, tripod plate and power at one low price.
