Features such as variable frame rates, 60p, chromatic aberration compensation (CAC), cine-like gamma, and many others provide limitless possibilities for dramatic, news and sports productions. No matter what the task the AG-HPX500 has it covered. This kit comes equipped with 2 64GB P2 cards, the Fujinon XA17X7.6BRM-M58B 17x high definition lens, and tripod adapter plate.
