Chapter 1 Overview
Chapter 1 Overview
Attention
Perform the following settings before using the unit for the first time.
• The unit is delivered from the factory with the settings not yet specified for your area. Revise the settings for the TV
standard of your area, etc., following the procedures described on page 13.
The AG-3DP1 P2 memory card camera-recorder features a camera unit equipped with two lenses and a 1/3-type 2.2megapixel 3MOS sensor, and a recording and playback unit that provides AVC-Intra 100 compression recording as
standard to provide HD full pixel and full sampling for high sensitivity, superb image quality, and high-quality video.
The P2 card provides reliability, speed, and IT functionality that no other media can match, and it is destined to
revolutionize workflow for production of 3D programs, from shooting to editing.
 Secure and comfortable 3D recording
The camera is provided with the 3D assist function. It enables you to check by colors on the LCD monitor screen the
convergence point area and any excessive pop-out and/or receded area generated by parallax and to adjust the
parallax appropriately. The effects of the 3D assist function can be output to the viewfinder and an external monitor.
The camera also features auto iris, auto focus, and manually selectable ND filters, for easy shooting.
 3D image and convergence point
When shooting
When viewing a 3D image
Convergence point
3D glasses
• The illustration above is an image for explanation.
The convergence point is a point where the optical axes of the left and right lenses converge. This indicates the
reference plane when viewing a 3D image.
When shooting, adjust the convergence point by shooting the subject you want to set on the reference plane so
that the image of the subject from the left lens is completely superimposed onto that from the right lens.
When viewing the 3D image, a subject located closer than the convergence point is displayed in front of the
screen, and a subject located farther than the convergence point is displayed behind the screen.
 High quality and high sensitivity
The camera uses an AVC-Intra codec (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264), which provides high reliability for broadcasting equipment.
A 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS sensor enables high-sensitivity HD full pixel recording for high-resolution video.
The camera also enables high-quality and uncompressed, 16-bit, 48-kHz, 4-channel recording of audio.
 Wide zoom range
The camera is equipped newly developed HD lenses (left and right) that enable wide to 17.0 × optical zooming. It
expands the capability of supporting a wide range of applications
 Multi-camera recording supported
The camera features GENLOCK input and TC input, to allow simultaneous recording from multiple connected cameras.
This makes multi-camera live recording and multi-camera editing with this unit easy and convenient.
 2D LL recording mode supported
The camera supports 2D LL recording mode, for recording the left-lens (L) image on the left and right P2 cards
simulatneously. With this function you can record images with no parallax difference or make a backup copy, which is
made easy and convenient by use of two card slots.
10
 Variable frame rate makes speed effects possible (in the 720P format)
The AG-3DP1 comes with the variable frame rate feature developed for the VariCam HD Cinema camera. In 720P
mode*1, the frame rate can be set to any of 20 steps between 12P and 60P (50P). This puts features such as
undercranking (dropping frames) and overcranking (high frame rate) for quick motion and slow motion cine-like effects
at the disposal of the camera crew.
 Native mode
Playing back a recording made at a frame rate set in the camera at the normal rate provides speed effects without
using a frame rate converter. Native mode also extends the recording time of a P2 card. (720P)
 14-bit digital circuit
The high-performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) in the camera offers 14-bit signal input and 20-bit internal
processing. It handles gamma settings and other adjustments for each R/G/B color in 1080/60i (50i) video as well as
conversion to all HD/SD formats (P/I conversion, line conversion and down conversion). Because of this high-quality
images can be produced in all video formats.
 Six gamma curves including cine-like gamma
To expand camera capabilities, the AG-3DP1 offers six gamma curves including cine-like gamma to easily produce
recordings with the characteristic warm tone of film.
 Slow, synchro and high speed shutter
The shutter speed can be set from a slow speed of 1/12 s up to a maximum speed of 1/250 s. Combined with the
variable frame rate functions, this allows you to create blurring or stop motion effects. The AG-3DP1 also features a
synchro scan function that is ideal for capturing screen shots from a computer monitor.
 Scene files
Six preset files are provided, and you can change the file names and their settings as desired. You can also save up
to four files to an SD or SDHC memory card (both referred to as “SD memory card” below) and load files from an SD
memory card.
 Shooting assist functions
 USER buttons:
Three USER buttons each of which can be assigned a frequently used function for immediate access.
 Focus assist:
Magnifies the center portion of the image and displays a focus bar to facilitate focusing.
 Variable color temperature:
Allows fine adjustment after setting the white balance.
 REC CHECK:
Provides a quick check of the last few seconds of the most recently recorded clip.
 4-position optical ND filter provided.
 Remote control support
This camera supports the AJ-RC10G remote control unit (optional accessory) and the AG-EC4G extension control unit
(optional accessory). The remote control allows you to adjust camera image and recording controls at a distance while
viewing what you are shooting.
 Camera extension system support
This camera can be connected to the AG-CA300G camera adapter (optional accessory) and the AG-BS300 base
station (optional accessory) to enable camera extension system recording. For details on connections to these devices,
refer to the connection instructions and precautions found in the instruction manuals for the AG-CA300G and AGBS300, and observe the instructions for the AG-HPX300P/AG-HPX301E.
*1 1080 recording is performed at a fixed frame rate of 24P/30P (25P).

Chapter 1 Overview
Camera Unit Features
Chapter 1 Overview
Recording and Playback Features
 P2 cards for high capacity, high speed and high reliability
In addition to exceptional resistance to shock, vibration and temperature fluctuations, the P2 (Professional Plug-in) card
has a reliability that guarantees long-term repeated recording/initialization that a tape or hard disk system with their
moving parts could never match.
The connectors are professional grade to withstand long-term continual insertion and removal.
The P2 card stores the AV data for each shooting session as a single file that is immediately accessible for nonlinear
editing or transfer over a network without digitizing. Transfer speeds far surpassing those of optical disks also help to
speed up production processes. The P2 card complies with PC card standards and can be directly plugged into the PC
card slot on a computer.*1
 Immediate startup and reliable data protection
When you press the REC button in standby mode, the camera instantly finds a blank area on the P2 card and begins
recording. Unlike a VTR system, there is no need to locate a blank section before recording. In normal use, there is
no chance of accidentally deleting a recording. Recordings will not be erased unless you intentionally delete a file or
initialize the card.
 Interval REC
Recording one frame at a time at set intervals (from 2 frames to 10 minutes), this mode is useful for monitoring,
supervision and special ultra undercranking effects.
 Clip thumbnail preview
The camera records each cut as a clip (file) and automatically attaches a thumbnail image and file information to it. To
preview a clip on the LCD monitor or to check clip data, simply choose the clip you want from the list of thumbnails.
These thumbnails and the file data can be viewed on a PC (P2 Viewer*2) or processed in a nonlinear editing program.
 Shot marker
If desired, you can add a simple OK/reject shot marker to each clip either during or after recording. When a P2 card is
mounted in a PC (P2 Viewer), the PC will display only marked clips.

Handling P2 Card Recording
The P2 card is a semiconductor memory card designed for
professional video and broadcast equipment.
• Since the AVC-Intra record data as files, it is ideally
suited for computer processing. The file structure is in
a proprietary format that includes audio and video data
recorded in the MXF file format as well as various other
essential data forming an interrelated folder structure as
shown below.

• The indicated capacities include a management area so the
total area available for recording is somewhat smaller.
Splitting clips recorded on P2 cards
This camera will automatically generate additional clips
for a continuous recording on an 8 GB or higher capacity
P2 card when the recording exceeds the durations given
below. Even so, a P2 device will handle such clips as a
single clip in thumbnail operations (display, delete, recover,
copy, etc.). Such recordings may be handled as separate
clips by nonlinear editing software or a PC.

can be downloaded from the website listed below. You
can also visit the support desk at the following website for
details on the system requirements of P2 Viewer.
http://pro-av.panasonic.net/
• Follow the steps below to use general software such as
Microsoft Windows Explorer or Apple Finder to transfer
the data to a PC. Be sure to use P2 Viewer to write data
back to a P2 card.
• Treat the CONTENTS folder and the LASTCLIP.TXT file
as a unit.
• Do not modify the data below the CONTENTS folder.
• In copying, be sure to copy both the CONTENTS folder
and the LASTCLIP.TXT file together.
• When transferring data from multiple P2 cards,
create separate folders for each P2 card to prevent
overwriting clips with identical names.
• Do not delete data on a P2 card.
• Format P2 cards only on a P2 card device.

Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
To record high-quality video with the AG-3DP1, the black
and white balances must be adjusted according to
conditions.
For higher quality, it is recommended that the adjustments
should be made in this order AWB (white balance
adjustment)  ABB (black balance adjustment)  AWB
(white balance adjustment).
NOTE
If white balance and black balance adjustments are made
while the video image is distorted due to GENLOCK, the
adjustments may not be correct. Wait for the video image
to return to normal before performing white balance and
black balance adjustments again.

Adjusting the Convergence Point
Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
The convergence point is a point where the optical axes
of the left and right lenses converge. This indicates the
reference plane when viewing a 3D image.
When shooting, adjust the convergence point by shooting
the subject you wish to set on the reference plane so that
the image of the subject from the left lens is completely
superimposed onto that from the right lens.
When viewing 3D image, a subject located closer than the
convergence point is displayed in front of the screen, and
a subject located farther than the convergence point is
displayed behind the screen.

What is convergence point adjustment?
What is parallax?
Are there guidelines for appropriate
parallax?
There are two guidelines for parallax.
A Parallax: 3 % or less the effective width of the screen
It is usually said that a parallactic angle within 1
degree is preferable for comfortable 3D viewing. The
parallactic angle, here, means the difference between
the angle of convergence when a viewer watches a
point on the screen and the angle when he or she
watches an object popped out or recessed from the
screen. A large parallactic angle makes it difficult for
the viewer to perceive a stereoscopic image, causing
eyestrain.
Assuming that people view 3D images from a
distance three times the effective height of the screen,
a parallactic angle of 1 degree corresponds to
misalignment of approximately 3 % the effective width
of the screen. This leads to one of the guidelines for
parallax, which is to limit horizontal misalignment to
within 3 % the effective width of the screen.
B Parallax in depth: 50 mm or less
Parallax in depth is created when an image from the
right lens is displayed to the right and an image from
the left lens to the left on the screen.
If the value of this parallax exceeds the pupil distance
of a viewer, it will cause eyestrain.
In consideration of individual differences of viewers
such as age and pupil distance, setting parallax to
within 50 mm is preferable.
Parallax in depth is related to screen size. For a 16:9
screen, if the screen size is 77‑type or less, limiting
parallax to within 3 % the effective width of the screen
means that parallax in depth will not exceed 50 mm.
If the target screen size is 103‑type, limit parallax to
2.2 %. For a 200‑type screen, limit parallax to 1.1 %.
Convergence point
Left-lens image
Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
A human’s stereoscopic viewing takes advantage of
the brain’s ability to process information from the left
and right eyes of two images seen from their respective
perspectives. The misalignment of the two images is
called binocular parallax.
Mainly binocular parallax is used by 3D equipment
to create the feeling of stereoscopic images. When
shooting, the images from the left and right lenses are
misaligned because of the difference in the positions of
the lenses as well as in the directions of the optical axes.
This misalignment (called parallax) changes according
to the distance of the subject being shot (illustration at
right).
If parallax is excessive, it is difficult to fuse the two
images within the brain. This may produce a double
image, create a feeling of strangeness, etc., causing
eyestrain.
Limiting the parallax appropriately during shooting is
important for comfortable 3D viewing.
Right-lens image
Parallactig angle in depth
Parallactic angle for pop out
• Extreme parallax between left and
right images is demonstrated in the
illustration above.
 Parallax for pop out
Parallax: Approx. 3 % or less (any screen size)
 Parallax in depth
For a screen of 77-type or less
Parallax: Approx. 3 % or less
For a screen of 77-type or more
Parallax: 50 mm or less
How to operate this camera
The 3D assist function of this camera (page 56) provides
a guide of distance ranges from the subject for achieving
appropriate parallax. Referring to the guide, change the
layout of the subject and check the parallax value (%
effective screen width), using a monitor.
55
3D Assist Function
In order to shoot 3D images safely and comfortably, this
camera is provided with three types of 3D assist function.

Setting Time Data
The camera provides time data such as time codes, user
bits, time of day (real-time) data, which is recorded on each
frame alongside video data. It is also recorded as as data
in clip metadata files.
Time data overview
Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
Time code
Use the TCG switch to select Rec Run or Free Run mode.
• Free Run: The time code advances constantly whether
the camera is on or not just like time itself. Recording
using a slave-locked time code input to the TC IN
connector is also possible.
• Rec Run: The time code advances only during recording.
This will enable continuation of time codes in previously
recorded clips and when the power is turned off or new
P2 cards are inserted to continue recording.
NOTE
The following events will disrupt time code continuity.
• When clips are deleted
• When 24PN or 30PN (25PN) is selected
• When a recording is interrupted by a REC WARNING or other
abnormality
User bits
• Two types of user bits are provided internally: LTC and
VITC.
• LTC user bits enable the recording of user settings, time,
date, time codes and similar values, the frame rate data
for camera capture and external input values (via TC
IN connector input). They are output from the TC OUT
connector or output as LTC embedded in HD SDI.
• VITC user bits record the frame rate data of camera
capture. They are output as VITC embedded in HD SDI.
• The user bits in clip metadata record the LTC UB value at
the start of recording.
Date (real time)
• The built-in clock calculates the year, month, day and
time from the internal clock to display on video output
on the LCD monitor, in the viewfinder, or embedded in
MONITOR OUT.
• The internal clock is not only used to calculate the free
run time code when the power is off and to set the user
bit year, date and time, but also to set file creation dates
when clips are recorded that determine the order of
thumbnails and playback order.
• It is also used for generating clip metadata and UMID
(Unique Material Identifier).
For details, see [Setting Date and Time of Internal Clock]
(page 28).

Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
For details on menu operation, refer to [Using the
Menus] (page 106).
• Select DF to advance time code in drop frame
mode and NDF in non-drop frame mode. Note that
the unit always operates in NDF mode when 50 Hz
is selected in SYSTEM MODE (1080-50i or 72050P), or 24PN is set when 60 Hz is selected (108059/94i or 720-59.94P).

VFR (variable frame rate) time code
• In 24PN mode, recording is performed at 24-frame time code, and output is performed at 30-frame time code to match
the 2:3 pull-down scheme used for video output.
• At a frame rate (capture frame rate) of 24P in 24PN mode, the speed of recording and the output time code matches
actual time, but not at any speed other than 24P. (Example: at 60P recording progresses at 60/24 speed)
• Then the camera operates in Rec Run mode and the time code output at start of recording matches the recording time
code.
• This is true also for frame rates other than 30P capture in 30PN mode and 25P capture in 25PN mode.

Externally Locking the Time Code
The time code generator built into your camera may be
locked to an external generator. It is also possible to lock
an external time code generator to the internal generator.
NOTE
When the system mode is 1080/23.98PsF, use the HD signal of
23.98PsF as a reference signal and input a 24-frame time code
to the TC IN connector.
To externally lock the time code
Connections for externally locking the
time code (examples)
Example 1 : Locking the time code to
external signals
Reference time
code
TC IN
Reference video
signal
GENLOCK IN
NOTE
• Use an HD Y reference signal as reference video signal.
• During HD-Y signal input in 720P system mode, GENLOCK
input for the video signal is applied but the time code is
delayed by 1 field.
• If the reference GENLOCK input signal becomes irregular,
recording cannot be performed normally and the continuity
of the time code cannot be guaranteed. When the reference
GENLOCK input signal becomes irregular, the unit resets the
L/R section of the camera and is restarted.
(During this process, the image is disturbed.)
• The input signal of the RETURN IN connector can be locked
externally if the menu option GENLOCK SEL in the OTHER
FUNCTIONS screen is set to RETURN IN.
Example 2 : Locking the time code of this
unit and external equipment to
the time code from an external
time code generator
Reference video
signal
External time code TC IN
generator
GENLOCK IN
1
Turn on the POWER switch.
2
Position the TCG switch at F-RUN.
3
Set the COUNTER button to TC.
4
Supply a phase-relationship reference
time code (that conforms to the time code
requirements) and reference video signals
to the TC IN and GENLOCK IN connectors,
respectively.
• Now the built-in time code generator is locked to the
reference time code.
• When locked to an external time code generator, the
time code is at all times locked to the external time code,
which is displayed as a highlighted value on the counter
indicator. Do not engage the recording mode during the
few seconds it takes for the sync generator to stabilize.
• Once a slave relationship is established, the TC IN and
GENLOCK IN connectors stay in slave status.*1
Note that the following events release slave status.
• When TC PRESET is performed
• The power is turned off
• The time code mode is switched
• The TCG switch is set to R-RUN
• When REC FORMAT has been switched
*1 The slave status locks the time code to the TC IN input
and the device will use this time code even if time
code input should subsequently cease.
Setting the user bits when the time code
is externally locked
To externally lock user bits, set the setting menu UB MODE
(RECORDING SETUP screen) to EXT.
Regardless of an F-RUN or R-RUN setting of the TCG
switch, the time code is slaved to user bit values input to
the TC IN connector.
For details, refer to [Setting Time Data] (page 59) and
[Setting User Bits] (page 61).
To unlock the externally locked time code
Discontinue external time code supply, then position the
TCG switch at R-RUN.
65
Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
As illustrated, both the reference video signals and the time
code must be input.
Follow the steps below.
Cautions in switching the power source
from battery to external power supply
Connect the DC IN socket with the external power supply
before removing the battery, in order to keep the time code
generator energized. If the battery is removed first, there is
no guarantee that the time code will stay externally locked.
Chapter 4 Adjustments and Settings for Recording
External synchronisation of the camera
when the time code is externally locked
When the time code is externally locked, the reference
video signals input through the GENLOCK IN connector
gen-lock the camera.
NOTE
• To lock other devices externally to the AG-3DP1, as the
master device, make sure that the other devices are in
the same mode as the AG-3DP1. Note that if some of the
connected devices use interlaced scanning while other
devices use progressive scanning, there may be breaks in
the video and time code.
• To externally lock at 24PN (Native Recording), be sure to
input a non-dropframe time code. External lock using a drop
frame time code is not possible.
66
Counter Setting and Display
Pressing the COUNTER button to view the counter displays
the counter value on the time code indicator on the
LCD monitor and in the viewfinder. The counter value is
indicated in “Hour : Minute : Second” format. The counter
value is not displayed during playback.
The menu option REC COUNTER in the DISPLAY SETUP
screen can be set to display two types of counters.
TOTAL: provides a continuous count until reset by
pressing the COUNTER RESET button. The
counter value is retained when P2 cards are
replaced and when the power is turned off.
CLIP: The counter is reset to 0 at the start of each
recording and allows you to keep track of clip
recording time while shooting the current clip.
NOTE
• Pressing the RESET button when the counter value is
displayed resets the counter to 0.
• The counter value indicates values in the range between
0:00:00 and 9:59:59 in 1-second steps.
LCD Monitor/Viewfinder Screen Status Displays
In addition to video, the LCD monitor and viewfinder show
messages indicating camera settings and operating status,

85
Chapter 5 Preparation
Use of external DC power supply
Make sure that the output voltage of the external DC
power supply meets the rated voltage of the camera before
making a connection.
The output current of the external DC power supply should
be large enough to provide the connected camera with its
total amperage needs with a reasonable margin.
Use the following formula to calculate the total amperage
of the camera.
total power consumption ÷ voltage
When the power is turned on, a rush current occurs. If the
power supply is insufficient during this time, the camera
may be damaged. Therefore, we recommend using an
external DC power supply that provides at least twice the
total power consumed by the camera and all the devices
connected to the unit that power on when the camera
powers on (example: viewfinder). The DC cable should be
a two-core 18 AWG (or larger) shielded cable (nominal
cross-sectional area: 0.824 mm2).
When using an external power supply other than the
AC adaptor, check the DC IN socket pin information
to ensure correct polarity. If a +12 V power supply is
accidentally connected to the GND terminal, this could
cause a fire or personal injury.

NOTE
• When both the battery and the external DC power supply are
connected, power is supplied from the external DC power
supply. The battery can be removed or mounted while using
an external DC power supply.
• When using an external DC power supply, make sure you
turn on the external DC power supply before turning on the
camera-recorder’s power switch. If this sequence is reversed,
the camera-recorder may malfunction due to slow rising of
the external DC power supply voltage.
• The light circuit does not operate when power is supplied
via the DC IN socket. The light circuit can only operate when
power is supplied through the Anton/Bauer battery holder.
