Colorimetric and Resolution requirements of cameras

ADDENDUM 21 rev 2: Menu settings for
Panasonic DVCPro100 AJ-HDX900
Assessment was made on a engineering sample of the AJ-HDX900 (no serial number), a multi-standard
HDTV cam-corder. It is very similar in form and function to the SDX900, sharing many features and having
a very similar menu set, and seems to be a replacement for the HDX400. Production models may differ
slightly from the pre-production model initially assessed for this addendum.
The camera is switchable between 1080-line and 720-line HDTV standards, and between the base-normal
frame rates of 29.97 and 25Hz. It can also be switched, in 1080 mode, between interlace (50i, 59.94i) and
progressive (25psf, 29.97psf, and 23.98psf in both 2:3 and 2:3:3:2 pull-down) modes. In 720 mode it can
also be switched to half-frame rate, and thus can generate a “film look” in the camera at system speed. It has
specific “film-look” gamma curves that incorporate many of the contrast handling features of earlier
cameras, making it a great deal easier to set up. The camera has 3 2/3” ccds (1280x720, progressively
scanned) and records using small-format conventional DVCPro tape at 100Mb/s (in “long-play” mode).
There are two versions of the camera, suffixed P and E; as far as I can tell they are identical in every way,
except that the E version is expected to be used mostly at 50Hz while the P version will be used mostly at
60Hz. This is apparent only from the factory default settings of some menu items.
It is significantly smaller and lighter than the familiar Beta camcorder and is useful mostly for portable,
single-camera work. It has many internal menus for setting the performance, such that it can then be used
without external controls. It is not well suited to multi-camera operation. Monitoring and connectivity have
been improved over previous Panasonic models; it will genlock to either analogue HD Y or analogue
composite (PAL or NTSC as appropriate); there are two video outputs, one switchable between HDSDI, SDI
(appropriate down-conversion), and composite (PAL or NTSC), the other between HDSDI and HD analogue
Y for monitoring; it has a IEEE1394 (Firewire) output that will feed and control an external recorder.
There is a 7-second video cache memory. Using this, it is possible to record to tape up to 7 seconds of
events that occurred before pressing “Record”. The same circuitry is also used to provide a “slow-shutter” in
which adjacent frames are summed to produce smeared pictures and reduced noise (or extra gain).
Video compression is still DVCProHD, 6.7:1 for all the NTSC-related standards, 6.3:1 for all the PALrelated standards. The camera section has 14-bit adcs that deliver better noise performance than in earlier
models.
In this setup, the gamma correction and knee are adjusted to capture about 2.5 stops of overload, and 1 stop
of underexposure, to mimic film performance.
Some typographical errors have been corrected in the first revision.
This second revision includes settings intended to match the camera to the BBC’s ‘docs’ settings for the
DSR450.

Colorimetric and Resolution requirements of cameras
Alan Roberts
ADDENDUM 21 rev 2: Menu settings for
Panasonic DVCPro AJ-HDX900
Many menu items have little or no effect on the image. Those that do so are highlighted. The full menus are
given for completeness. Where two values are given {f} denotes film use, {v} video. The film mode uses
the “Filmlike1” gamma curve, which very closely resembles the best that can be done with a conventional
gamma curve and knee, but with a nice smooth join; there seems no point in ignoring this curve since
Panasonic have clearly put much effort into its design, and it works well. The photographic speed of the
camera is unchanged (about 640 ASA) using this curve (“Filmlike2” is a similar curve but copes with about
a stop less of overload and reduces the photographic “speed” by about a stop, also the manual knee controls
have no effect in this mode so it is not possible to customise it; “Filmlike3” further reduces the exposure
range and lowers the photographic “speed” of the camera by about one stop more; both these modes should
produce better noise performance and thus may well be the best option for film-like work). The video mode
uses conventional gamma and knee settings to achieve similar results but with more contrast compression in
highlights. Both modes can cope with about 2.5 stops of overexposure (about 500% measured); the video
mode (with optimal knee settings) has a slightly more pronounced change of slope in the knee but the
difference is marginal. Total exposure range has been measured as about 11 stops.
The shutter can be set to HALF (i.e. 180º), which avoids the problem of having to work out what it should be
from the field/frame rate.
Line Mix mode (available as a User Switch setting) appears to be the equivalent of EVS in other cameras.
Switched on in 25p mode reduces the vertical resolution to the same as 50i, thus minimising most interlace
twitter artefacts although the effect is not great.
Digital Super Gain is implemented by reducing the frame rate. This gives “free” gain without noise, provided
the smeared pictures and lowered frame rate is acceptable.
When shooting at 59.94 rates, drop-frame time code is always used. In this case, the film-like modes are at
29.97fps or 23.98fps. When using 23.98 (called 24 in the camera), you have the option of standard 2:3 pulldown or the recently adopted Advanced mode, 2:3:3:2 in which it is easier to extract original frames from the
59.94 output stream.
Viewfinder and monitoring outputs can both have markers, individually set.
The camera “Gain” switch stores many camera settings, allowing the user to set completely different
conditions selectable by that switch. However, most users will want only different gain, the menu contents
given here are appropriate for the range of gains quoted, it is for the user to decide which gain settings are
appropriate and to set the other conditions accordingly. Beware that the recommended settings were derived
during a short laboratory test of the camera, better settings may well be found once the camera goes into
general use.
Factory settings are underlined.
This second revision includes settings intended to match the camera to the
In the table, BBC values are marked: {f} for film look; {v} for video look; {u} for shooting without
subsequent grading (with headroom adjusted to 1.5 stops, and colour performance offset), intended to match
the BBC’s ‘docs’ settings for the DSR450.
