New Panasonic CX350 firmware adds V-Log, more AVC-Intra/Ultra recording

Recommended Posts

I know it's not a cinema camera, but for anyone else who uses the CX350, Panasonic released a new firmware late last week that added V-Log recording and more flavors of AVC-Intra/Ultra recording options, as well as other features and improvements.

"1. P2HD AVC-Intra 200/100/50 format recording are supported.
 * When you use the AVC-Intra format, the interval recording and back-ground recording functions cannot be used

2.The V-log mode was added to the gamma settings."

Very decent for that sort of camera! I wish cameras of this sort were more in favour. They're so useful!

I've been mostly happy with this thing so far. It's not going to replace a "real" camera, but I bought it for those "one man band" gigs that a whole cinema camera setup is overkill and for it's in camera live streaming capabilities (which are excellent, even on a mediocre wifi connection).

I haven't used a camera like this since I worked in news. The simplicity is divine, plus the incredible battery life and serious fast-charging batteries. For example, to test I kept it on for about four hours with pre-rec on and it still hadn't hit 50% of the stock battery.

The worst thing is the "by wire" lens setup, which I haven't yet gotten used to.

All that said, not for everyone but great performance for the price.

That's some seriously impressive (and, dare I say it "filmic/cinematic") footage. Very unlike that over-sharpened and contrasty look we're used to from the camcorder form.

For wide and other shots that don't need a super-shallow depth of field, it has a lot of advantages.
