Cine-Like Gamma (Eight-Mode Gamma)
Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic has
equipped the AG-HPX500 with advanced gamma functions that
address eight different shooting scenarios and expand your creative
abilities. Included are Cine-Like Gamma, which gives recordings the
characteristic warm tone of film recordings, and a News Gamma
that's designed especially for news gathering.

1080/480 24p Advance Mode
When recording in 1080/24p or 480/24p at 60 Hz, the AG-HPX500
lets you select 24pA (Advance) mode. In this mode, it performs 60i
conversion using 2:3:3:2 pulldown, which maintains higher image
quality than ordinary 24p (2:3 pulldown) in nonlinear editing*. In 30p
and 25p recording (at 50 Hz), the AG-HPX500 uses 2:2 pulldown.
