About the Panasonic AG-AC130

The AG-AC130 AVCCAM HD handheld camcorder offers a high-sensitivity 1/3", full-HD 2.2 megapixel U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) 3-MOS imager to capture native 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 AVCHD utilizing the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec. Coupling a 22X zoom lens with three independent adjustable rings (zoom, focus and iris), recordings look clean and crisp, without image degradation or dropouts and cover most shooting situations without the need for a wide-angle conversion lens.

The AC130 records video in four professional AVCCAM HD recording modes, including the highest-quality PH mode (average 21 Mbps/Max 24Mbps), the HA mode (approx.17 Mbps), the extended recording HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps) and a PM mode (approx. 8 Mbps, 720p only), which is ideal for shooting sports training and web video. With two SD Memory Card slots for relay or simultaneous recording, the AC130 can record up to 12 hours on two 64GB SD cards in PH mode, with automatic clip spanning across the two cards. In addition to SDXC and SDHC cards, the AC130 supports Panasonic's new SDHC full Class 10 UHS-1 (Ultra High Speed) Memory Cards, with transfer rates of 90MBs - 4-1/2 times as fast as the previous generation of SDHC media.

Panasonic AG-AC130 Features

  • Panasonic Optical Technology: The high-performance 22x zoom lens was designed specifically for professional HD video production. Sharing the wide-angle capability found in the DVX and HMC series, the lens offers some additional telephoto capability for a 28-616mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range
  • Manual Control Rings: Three manual rings - mechanical (cam-driven) zoom, focus and iris - allow you to operate as if you've got an interchangeable-lens camcorder, for fine, tactile control over the parameters of the captured image
  • Optical Image Stabilization: To compensate for any shaking of the operator's hand, the AC130 features an optical image stabilizer (OIS)
  • High-Sensitivity, Low-Noise 3MOS Image Sensor: The 1/3-type 2.2 Mp 3MOS sensor features the same Ultra Luminance Technology (ULT) that's incorporated in Panasonic's shoulder-mount P2 HD broadcast camcorders
  • Digital Zoom: This can be assigned to a user button for digital zooms of 2x, 5x and 10x. In combination with the optical zoom, this function provides a telephoto capability up to 220x
  • ND Filter: The AG-AC130 features a four-position (OFF, 1/4 ND, 1/16 ND, 1/64 ND) optical neutral density filter wheel
  • Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS): DRS estimates a gamma curve and knee slope to match the contrast of each pixel and applies them in real time, producing excellent gradation for each shade and minimizing blocked shadows and blown highlights
  • Three-Position Gain Selection: There is a 3-position gain selector, with L, M and H settings. To each setting you can assign a gain value of 0, +3, +6, +9, +12 and +18 dB. There is also a Super Gain of +24 dB and +30 dB, accessible via a user button only
  • Focus Assist Function: A Focus Bar that indicates the focus level can be displayed on the LCD and the focus-in-red display shows the focus area. These two display functions help you to focus quickly and accurately
  • High-Quality, Multi-Format Professional AVCHD PH Mode: The AG-AC130 uses the AVCHD recording format and also supports the high-image-quality PH mode. AVCHD complies with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 High Profile motion-picture compression technology
  • DV Recording Mode: The camera records SD video as a DV-format file (AVI Type 2) for added flexibility. Standard DV output (FireWire/IEEE 1394) lets you ingest files to a PC or Mac
  • Simplified Waveform & Vectorscope: The AG-AC130 has waveform and vectorscope display functions for analyzing a captured video signal on the LCD
  • Three User Buttons: A total of three user buttons can be set to trigger any selection of 16 different camera functions: INH, FACE DETECT, WFM, EVF DTL, D.ZOOM, DRS, S.GAIN, ATW, ATW LOCK, SHOT MARK, INDEX, LAST CLIP, BACKLIGHT, SPOTLIGHT, BLACKFADE and last but not least, WHITEFADE
  • High-Quality Color Viewfinder and LCD: The AG-AC130's color EVF uses a 0.45", approximately 1,226,000 dot-equivalent (852 x 480 x 3 [RGB]) LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) display panel. It delivers bright, detailed, high-resolution images and a high response speed
  • Stylish Design Boosts Mobility: Shifting the handle grip and LCD position forward (toward the lens) compared to the design of previous generations has improved the weight balance and visibility for handheld shooting, enabling a comfortably wide view
  • XLR Input for Pro-Quality Audio: The AG-AC130 comes equipped with two-channel XLR audio input terminals with a 48V phantom power supply. The internal microphone, external microphone, or line input can be selected for each channel. Large, easy-to-use level dials are also provided
  • HDMI Digital HD Output Terminal: The AG-AC130 is equipped with an HDMI output terminal for digital transfer of high-quality HD video and audio signals
  • Down-Converted SD Video Output: The AG-AC130 has an internal down-converter so it can output SD (480/576) signals from VIDEO OUT or HDMI (progressive only). The 16:9/4:3 aspect conversion mode can be selected from three types (side crop, letterbox, squeeze)
  • Workflow Versatility: The Panasonic AVCCAM family enables tapeless recording, which means faster-than-real-time transfers to Windows & Mac computers for nonlinear editing - whether via a USB 2.0 connection or by offloading SD/SDHC/SDXC cards via a card reader
  • Low-Angle Shots and Interviews: The upper part of the handle grip contains both the Rec Start/Stop button and a lens zoom speed control (three speeds). This design assures easy shooting even at low angles
  • Zebra: Select any two zebra levels from 50% to 105% (in 5% steps)
  • USB 2.0: The type mini-B USB port allows for connection to a PC in device mode
  • Remote Terminal: Enables remote operation of iris, focus, Rec Start/Stop and index functions
  • Color Bar: Outputs a color bar signal and test tone
  • Tally Lamps: Tally lamps are provided on the front and rear of the AC130
