Panasonic Upgrades DVX200 Firmware With New Color Palette

Panasonic releases a firmware upgrade for the AG-DVX200PJ camcorder. The new firmware changes the default color palette of the camera to a look designed to be more natural without the need for an adjustment. The DVX200PJ is the first in a new generation of large sensor, multi-format professional camcorders capable of capturing 4K/UHD, HD and SD, including cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160.

The Panasonic DVX200PJ’s powerful color adjustment tools and scene file settings can still be used to customize the image to the operator’s needs. End-users who have created custom looks using the previous default color settings can still use these settings by reverting to the original base color settings designated as Ver. 1.4 in the camcorder menu. 

The upgrade, v 1.5, can be downloaded at http://eww.pass.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av/support/content/download/EN/ep2main/soft/upgdvx200_e.htm.
