The AG-UX180 is the premium model of the new UX range and allows for easy, high-quality 4K, UHD and FHD recording. It is equipped with a newly-designed compact lens featuring a wide 24mm in 4K and 25.4mm in UHD/FHD in addition to a 20x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilisation (O.I.S), Intelligent Auto-Focus functionality and the use of three manual rings for zoom, focus and iris control.

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. Furthermore, the AG-UX180 is equipped with a 1.0-type MOS sensor, which allows for a balanced performance between sensitivity, depth of field and resolution. It supports 4K at 24p up to 100 Mbps, UHD at 50/60p up to 150Mbps, FHD at 50p/25p up to 50 Mbps, in addition to variable frame rate at up to 50p. In addition, simultaneous recording allows two SD memory cards to be used continuously.

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.
