The camera offers high-image-quality 4K/60p resolution, wide 74.1° angle and optical zoom with up to 24x magnification.

Let this industry leader be the star of your productions.
Panasonic AG-CX4000 4K HDR ENG Shoulder-Mount Camera
A top-tier production deserves a top-tier camera. 4K production isn’t always enough, so Panasonic made the AJ-CX4000 capable of handling a resolution of 2,000 TV lines, 10-Bit 100Mbps HEVC recording, and HDR picture quality. Add in direct streaming, NDI|HX and the ability to use a broadcast-standard B4 mount lens—and you have the perfect solution for any broadcaster on-the-go.
