High Image Quality

New 4/3-type Sensor for Beautiful Bokeh Effects and 4K Resolution

The AG-DVX200 features a 4/3-type, largeformat image sensor. It creates highly attractive Bokeh effects by blending 4K resolution with shallow depth of field. It also lets you capture clear images with minimal noise when shooting in dimly lit locations.


The high-performance LEICA DICOMAR 4K lens has passed the stringent quality standards of Leica Camera AG. A multi-coating process minimizes ghosts and flaring, while the use of a low-dispersion glass suppresses chromatic aberration. This results in especially clear images with very little color bleeding.

4K Engine with High-Speed Processing on a New LSI

The 4K engine, which is mounted on the AG-DVX200's newly developed LSI, quickly processes the massive amount of 4K data. A new noise reduction function also minimizes noise when shooting dark scenes with increased gain.

UHD/60p High-Resolution, High-Speed Full-Frame Recording

Full frame rate recording at a maximum 60p(60fps) is possible with UHD(3840 x 2160) resolution. This produces smooth, highresolution images from fast-moving scenes with no dropped frames. No dropped frames, which is important due to the recent announcement of UHD 59.94 native acquisition.

* Picture simulated.

Variable Frame Rate HD Recording at Max. 120 fps

When recording at high Full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, the frame rate can be varied from 2 to 120 fps.* Slow-motion images can be achieved by shooting at up to 12x normal speed (in 24p mode), and quick-motion images can be produced by dropping frames.

  • * When shooting from 2 to 96 fps, 28.0mm can be achieved at the wide-angle end, but this is limited to 35.2mm when shooting at 100 or 120 fps.

* Picture simulated.

12 stops of Latitude from V-Log L

The AG-DVX200 features a V-Log L function that is equivalent to the V-Log and curve characteristics provided on the new VariCam Series. Its 12-stop wide dynamic range accommodates cinema production work requiring post-process color gradation. In addition to this, gamma curves can be selected from 8 modes, including CINE-LIKE V, CINELIKE D, FILMLIKE 1/2/3, HD and SD.

The HDMI output terminal enables camerathrough output of 4K (4096 x 2160) /24p and UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p images. This allows uncompressed recording of 10 bit 4:2:2 image quality by external recorders.*

  • * When HDMI / HD-SDI is set to 10 bits, all internal recordings are disabled.

Infrared Shooting Function

The AG-DVX200 has an integrated, detachable IR filter. Its IR mode enables it to record 4K images in the dark. Shooting and recording are possible in a zero-lux environment, such as unlighted nightscapes, animals in nature, and event sites before the lights are turned on.

  • * An optional IR light is required separately.

Newly Developed Integrated Optical 13x Zoom Lens

This 13x zoom lens comprises 17 lenses in 11 groups, including 5 aspheric lenses. It offers a level of mobility that is possible only with an integrated lens, extending from 28mm wideangle (in FHD mode)*1 to a wide zoom range with F2.8 brightness (at the wide-angle end), for news gathering and video production. The i.Zoom*2 function increases the zooming capability to a maximum of approximately 20x, while maintaining high resolution.

  • *1: 35mm film equivalent. Varies depending on the video recording format. FHD: 28mm, 4K/24p: 29.5mm, UHD/30p: 30.6mm, UHD/60p: 37.2mm
  • *2: Cannot be used in 4K/UHD shooting modes.

Intelligent AF

The AG-DVX200 features a high-speed, high-precision Intelligent AF system. Its new microdrive focus unit provides the focus lens with an extremely fine, continuous drive, to quickly trace your subject's movements. The excellent focusing speed, tracking performance and stability of this AF system strongly support the detailed 4K images and shallow focus.

Advanced Hand-Shake Correction

  • Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer(OIS)
    The correction area has been dramatically increased in the newly developed lens. This provides powerful correction even in unstable shooting situations, such as low-angle or highangle shots. The OIS lens drive mechanism has also been changed to a ball system. The ball OIS system reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for smallamplitude hand-shake.
  • 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer*
    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.

    • * Cannot be used in 4K/UHD shooting modes.

* Comparison with AG-AC160A (Discontinued product.)

Triple Manual Ring

The AG-DVX200 features three manual rings for mechanical (cam-driven) Zoom, Focus and Iris control. This manual operation offers a highly familiar, professional feel.

ND Filters, Gain, White Balance

  • ND Filters: OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64 ND filters built-in.
  • Gain Selector: Select from 0dB to +24dB gain for 3-position (L/M/H) allocation.

SD Memory Card U3 Standard for 4K Acquisition

The AG-DVX200 records onto SDHC/SDXC cards. Supporting the UHS Speed Class 3 for high-speed data transfer, this enables 4K/24p,UHD/60p, and VFR recording. Approximately 160 minutes of 4K/24p data can be recorded onto a 128GB SD card, or a scene of about 110 minutes of UHD/60p data. (A 64GB SD card will hold approximately 80 minutes of 4K/24p data, or about 55 minutes of UHD/60p data.)

Double SD Card Slot Boosts Recording Reliability

Two SD card slots allow dual-codec recording, and enable various recording formats to raise recording reliability.

  • Background Recording
    Records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when the AG-DVX200 is stopped, in Slot 2.
  • Relay Recording
    Automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2.
  • Simultaneous Recording
    Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this highly redundant recording mode.
  • SD Card Copy
    Recorded data is copied between the two slots.

AG ROP iPad App for Wireless Remote Control

Attach Wireless Module AJ-WM30 or AJ-WM50 to the AG-DVX200 and install the free "AG ROP" app for iPad to enable wireless control of the AG-DVX200 from the iPad. AG ROP (AG Remote Operation Panel) App for iPad*1 is available for free at Apple App Store. It enables wireless remote control of the AG-DVX200*2 memory card camera recorder. The control screen of the AG ROP displays large numerals and provides upper and lower touch keys for easy understanding and use. In addition to the multitude of control functions, such as camera setting, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop and menu setting, AG ROP enables the control of the AG-DVX200's internal lens for remote operation of the i.ZOOM, zoom and focus. This provides extra versatility when, for example, the AG-DVX200 is set up on a crane. It also displays a thumbnail view and a preview view, so clips*3 recorded in the AG-DVX200's memory card can be displayed as thumbnails and previewed on an iPad. AG ROP lets you check the image while recording.
