The Micro Four Thirds (MFT) standard has gotten another device to support it, as Panasonic has launched its first ever MFT camcorder, the AG-AF100. The camcorder uses an SLR-sized sensor to shoot 1080p video with the same depth of field and wide angles as you’d do with a 35mm film camera, but in a package that is physically much smaller. Another benefit of the AG-AF100 is that users will still have the option of interchangeable lenses, but it also supports adapters to use lenses from other brands such as Canon, Nikon or Leica. Panasonic didn’t mention the retail price of this device, but it was mentioned that the AG-AF100 will be shipping before the end of 2010, so at least we know it won’t drag till next year. Apparently the price will not be too high, as the company is targeting independent filmmakers who are generally on a tighter budget.
