by | Nov 28, 2020 | Gear, News, Production, Video

Panasonic has announced the release of the new HC3900GJ/HC3900GSJ HD studio camera that’s fitted with a large image sensor for higher sensitivity and video quality in a cost-effective package.

A Camera Control Unit (CCU), Remote Operation Panel (ROP) and 7 inches (17.8 cm) LCD Color Viewfinder are also scheduled for concurrent release, providing a high-operability system for studio productions and coverage of live events.

The AK-HC3900GJ/HC3900GSJ HD studio camera is equipped with a large 11.14-megapixel image sensor, with high sensitivity of F10/59.94Hz and F11/50Hz (2000 lx) in maintaining an S/N of 62 dB or higher to achieve lower-noise, higher-quality images, even in dimly lit event spaces. Functions such as low-skew shooting to reduce distortion and chromatic aberration compensation to automatically reduce circumjacent blur have also been included.

High-quality 4K shooting with horizontal and vertical resolution of 2,000 TV lines is also supported with an optional 4K upgrade*1. 4K/HDR and ITU-R BT.2020 are also supported, enabling higher luminance and a wider range of color expression. With the 4K upgrade, 12G-SDI output and 3G-SDI Quad Link output are supported when connected to the AK-HCU250PJ/HCU250EJ/HCU250PSJ/HCU250ESJ Camera Control Unit (CCU), enabling operability of higher-end 4K models.

  • *1: Support is planned with a software version update (4K Upgrade) in the second quarter of CY2021.
  • * This unit does not support Build-up Units. When using box lenses, a lens supporter from the lens manufacturer is required.
