4K/UHD/FHD Camcorder with 24mm industry-best wide-angle*, 20x optical zoom and super-slow motion recording
This product is part of our optional two year warranty program. This program is enhancing one of the best service programs in the industry and offers all customers the best after-sales service possible.
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.
