4K 60p/50p Camcorder featuring the Industry's Widest Angle 24mm, 20x Optical Zoom and 1.0-type MOS Sensor
Memory Card Camera Recorder
Shift Your Video Production to Professional 4K Images.
The AG-UX180 is the "UX-series premium model" with professional functions and specifications for high-end users. This model is equipped with a newly designed compact lens featuring a wide 24mm angle and 20x optical zoom as well as a 1.0-type (effective size) high-sensitivity MOS sensor. Its evolved Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) and intelligent AF function are suitable for professional camera work.
The AG-UX180 supports 4K 24p, UHD 60p/50p, FHD 60p/50p multi-format recording and HD super slow-motion. Two SD memory card slots*1 are provided to enable relay/simultaneous/backup recording for enhanced reliability, and also support UHD/FHD dual codec recording for a more efficient workflow.
The controls of the AG-UX180, such as the manual three rings and user button, as well as interfaces, such as 3G-SDI/HDMI and XLR input, are engineered to meet the needs of professional video recording. Offering the same level of agility and mobility as the conventional HD handheld camcorder, the AG-UX180 provides powerful support for high-image-quality 4K video production.
Newly Developed, Industry’s Widest Angle 24mm*2 and 20x Optical Zoom Lens
Intelligent Zoom for Maximum 30x Zoom in Super-High Resolution: In FHD shooting modes, the i.Zoom function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of approximately 30x while maintaining high resolution. When the zoom reaches the 20x optical zoom limit it switches seamlessly to i.Zoom.
Digital Zoom (2x, 5x or 10x): The AG-UX180 is equipped with 2x, 5x and 10x digital zoom. Using the 20x optical zoom and i.Zoom together, it gives you supertelephoto magnification equivalent to a 300x zoom without dropping in light intensity.
LEICA DICOMAR*6 Lens: This lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimizes ghosts and flaring, resulting in especially clear images.
*1 UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) SD memory card is required for a video recording mode of 100 Mbps or higher.
*2 35mm film camera equivalent in 4K 24p (aspect ratio 17:9) recording. The angle of 24 mm is the industry’s widest for a camcorder with integrated lens. (As of September 2016, according to Panasonic survey.)
*3 World’s first for a camcorder with integrated lens having a 1.0-type or larger sensor. (As of September 2016, according to Panasonic survey.
*4 Effective size
*5 35 mm film equivalent. Varies depending on the video recording format. 4K/24p: 24.0 mm (17:9 aspect ratio), UHD/FHD: 25.4 mm (16:9 aspect ratio).

1.0-Type (Effective Size) MOS Sensor for High- Precision, High-Speed 4K 60p/50p*7 Recording
Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer [4K/UHD/FHD] and High-Speed, High-Precision Intelligent AF
- Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer [4K/UHD/FHD]: Provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or high-angle shots. The ball OIS system reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for small amplitude hand-shake
- 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer [FHD]: In HD shooting modes, by using hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilization, hand-shake in various directions, including the rotary direction, is detected and corrected
Intelligent Auto Focus Offering High Speed, Excellent Tracking Performance and Stability: Focus status judgment algorithm achieves accurate and quick transition to search operation. High-precision, highspeed Micro Drive Focus unit accurately tracks the subject even when a quick change in focal distance occurs. AF system accurately judges changes in the subject by actively using minute wobbling motions in the high-resolution 4K image
Custom AF Function for Adjustment of AF Speed, Tracking Sensitivity and Area Settings: Enables the AF to operate exactly as intended by the user in accordance with the subject type or application.
