First official footage from the new Panasonic DVX200!

Here are some very nice 4K V-LOG images from Panasonic's first official DVX200 footage (please watch at 2160p and your monitor's highest resolution:


And the "First Look" from Zacuto:

I agree with Jens and Steve - at $4195 (pre-order here), this camera is going to be very popular with wedding shooters, documentarians and run and gunners.

That said, the DVX's 8-bit color space and h.264 compression are still a problem. After recording 10-bit 4:2:2 and losslessly compressed RAW to an SD card on a $1000 Pocket Cinema Camera, I don't understand why Panasonic, Canon and Sony still have such a hard time with this in $4000+ cameras.

For me, and other shooters who want less compression and more gradable images, something like the $4995 URSA Mini 4.6K EF is probably a better option - but for shooters who want the convenience of a built-in power zoom lens and don't want or need a lot of flexibility in post, this is going to be a terrific camera.
