Transcode Panasonic AG-HPX250 P2 MXF to Avid DNxHD for editing in Media Composer 7
There's no other camera on the market like the new Panasonic AG-HPX250 – a rugged 4:2:2 camcorder recording 10-bits to P2 AVC-Intra for under $6,000. The critical importance of capturing at 10-bits cannot be overstated. Compared to the vast crop of anemic 8-bit recording formats like AVCHD, XDCAM, and HDV, 10-bit capture (HDCAM SR) enables four times more precise color sampling, while also eliminating the dreaded contour artifacts often seen in 8-bit systems.
