Panasonic AG AF100 Micro Four Thirds camcorder starts to shipPanasonic has taken yet another step in the world of Micro Four Thirds (MFT) devices by rolling out the AG-AF100, a new camcorder based on the aforementioned system. This camera will target the professional market with a price point of $4,995, delivering a feature set that is focused on video recording instead of the limited options that are available on many video-capable DSLRs right now based on a similar Micro Four Thirds sensor. One of its features would be 1080p recording in AVCHD format, where the recording can be stored on dual SD memory cards or output as an uncompressed, 8-bit signal via HD-SDI cables. Apart from that, the other 1080 recording options comprise of 60i, 50i, 30p, and 25p, not to mention 720 recording capability at several different frame rates including 60p and 30p as well. In addition, the system supports similar lenses, filters and other accessories which can be attached to a standard MFT camera. Even when it comes to audio recordings, you will find it to be a vast improvement over DSLRs since it enables Dolby AC3 recording and an external microphone attachment via XLR. Its battery offers up to 4 hours of direct recording before being exhausted, which should be enough for most family functions. [Press Release]
