(Newark, New Jersey--August 25, 2014) Dave Hall, principal of Davideo Multimedia (Berkeley Heights, NJ) recently invested in Panasonic’s new AJ-PX270 P2 HD camcorder for his roster of corporate/event assignments, including ongoing work shooting performance videos for the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
Dave Hall, principal of Davideo Multimedia (Berkeley Heights, NJ) recently invested in Panasonic’s AJ-PX270 P2 HD camcorder for his roster of corporate/event assignments, including ongoing work shooting performance videos for the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Hall has already used the PX270 to shoot weddings and a quinceanera celebration.
Hall, a longtime Panasonic shooter and owner of an AG-HPX300 shoulder-mount and AG-HMC150 AVCCAM camcorder, has already used the PX270 to shoot weddings and a quinceanera celebration.
“At only five pounds, the PX270 is significantly lighter than the HPX300, but it delivers big camera performance,” said Hall. “I’m quickly making the PX270 my go-to camera, including for my high-profile NJPAC work.”
Hall praised the PX270’s impressive image quality, 22x long-range zoom, live streaming capability, shockless white balancing and its ability to record on both microP2 and standard size P2 cards (with an SD card slot for impromptu AVC-Intra50 recording).
“With remote control, I can zoom very slowly, which I haven’t been able to do with competitive cameras,” Hall said. “And with the PX270’s jacks for two remotes, I can control zoom and iris simultaneously, which isn’t possible with the older HPX300.”
“The quinceanera was a challenging environment, with big groups of people dancing while facing away from me,” he continued. “Using a monopod, I was able to tilt the LCD screen down to capture the action while I was holding the PX270 over my head, which I certainly can’t do with a shoulder-mount.
“What’s more, the lighting at the birthday celebration was horrible, but when I engaged the PX270’s auto white balance I was able to pan over to bluish daylight, then pan back to dark, and it all looked very natural. It’s an incredible feature.”
Hall has also pushed the PX270’s audio functionality, “At a recent wedding, I outfitted the camera with a Lectrosonics wireless receiver, which allowed me to use both XLRs for two wireless channels – one on the groom and one on the podium for readings,” he noted, “and then I still had the built-in stereo camera mics for crowd reaction.”
Hall typically shoots in AVC-Intra 50 and edits in Adobe Premiere.
