Panasonic AG-AF100 Micro Four Thirds Video Camera Starts Shipping

December 28, 2010, By Leo Xavier

The last time we had reported about Panasonic’s AG-AF100 Micro Four Thirds video camera was when the company had announced its shipping date back in October. The company has kept its word and is shipping the camcorder right now. It comes with a price tag of $4,995.

The AG-AF100 comes equipped with a Micro Four Thirds sensor that records to dual SD cards in AVCHD and outputs 8-bit uncompressed 4:2:2 video to an external recorder via an HD-SDI connection.

The 4/3″ sensor delivers Depth of Field and Field of View similar to a 35mm movie camera. The imager minimizes skew with fast imager scanning, and incorporates an optical low pass filter for elimination of aliasing and moiré.

The camcorder records 1080 at 60i, 50i, 30P, 25P (native) and 24P (native), and 720 at 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p and 24p native, in AVCHD’s highest-quality PH mode (maximum 24Mbps).

And this new camcorder might also be the end to your worries about the audio issues that plagues DSLR video shooting, since the AF100 comes with two phantom-powered XLR audio inputs and a built-in stereo microphone.

It looks like an awesome camcorder. Are you having plans to get it? Lets us know your thoughts about it.
