A TRAIN PRODUCTIONS BRINGS TOP VIDEO QUALITY TO
EVENT/CORPORATE PROJECTS WITH PANASONIC AJ-PX270 P2 HD CAMCORDERS
NEWARK, NJ (December 22, 2014) – A Train Productions (Westfield, NJ), a diversified video production company specializing in event and corporate videography, recently invested in three Panasonic AJ-PX270 P2 HD handhelds, which have become the company’s primary cameras.
“I’ve spent much of my career working at the top level of NYC production and post-production, which inspires me to bring a higher-end sensibility to the realm of event videography,” said A Train principal Jonathan Applebaum. “After successfully building my business with successive generations of Panasonic camcorders—the AG-DVX100, and the AG-AC160—I’m now pushing our product further with the PX270.”
Applebaum explained that A Train’s work is dominated by wedding and bar/bat mitzvah coverage, as well as multi-camera production of musical and theatrical performances.
“We’ve been shooting with the PX270 for several months now, and have found its chief benefits to be the silky-smooth, ultra-slow servo zoom, luxurious color rendition, and low light performance,” he said.
“The lens on the PX270 is a significant improvement, enabling an almost imperceptibly slow zoom in or out on a ‘money’ shot, such as during the first dance at a wedding or a poignant moment in an interview,” Applebaum continued. “And in venues with super-saturated colors, the PX270 produces a beautifully rich image—no smearing, no blockiness—something I’ve never experienced in a 1/3” sensor camera.
“A Train does extensive shooting in synagogues, where we have zero control over the lighting conditions. Even in uneven, dimly-lit spaces, we’re achieving a much better image – with higher contrast and sharpness – than ever before.”
“For ultimate consistency, all our cameras must be ‘A’ cameras, and when it came time to upgrade, being able to afford a set of three was a major consideration,” he added, “The PX270 fits perfectly into the cost/benefit equation for the type of work we do.”
A Train records to microP2 media, and Applebaum edits in Final Cut Pro. For more information about A Train Productions, visit www.atrainproductions.com.
