About Panasonic AG-AC90A

Featuring a stylish, easy-to-operate design, the Panasonic AG-AC90A AVCCAM Full HD Handheld Camcorder captures native 1920 x 1080 resolution images and records in 1080/60p, 60i, 30p and 24p, as well as in standard definition (480/60i) in 60Hz. The AG-AC90A offers significant improvements over its predecessor, the AG-AC90, including two new recording options -- a PM mode (1280x720, 8Mbps) supporting sports analysis applications and a CS mode (720x480, 3.5Mbps) for cloud service utilization.

Other AC90A enhancements comprise the ability to copy content from one SD card to another, a date and time superimpose function ideal for law enforcement and legal depositions, Freeze Frame (still picture) on video out during shooting position change, Eye-Fi wireless SD card support, a Variable White Balance function, additional marker displays and a Digital Range Stretch (DRS) On/Off user button.

High powered 29.8mm Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
The AC90A offers a high-powered 12X zoom lens includes a 29.8 mm (35 mm equivalent) wide-angle setting. When using the Intelligent 25X digital zoom, it achieves up to 25X seamless zooming. In addition, it also features a 2X, 5X and 10X digital zoom function. Panasonic's unique Nano Surface Coating minimizes ghosts and flaring and a high speed, F1.5 brightness enables extremely clear image rendering. Its built-in 5-axis Hybrid OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) ensures stable handheld shooting.

High-Sensitivity BSI Type 3MOS Sensors
The AC90A features three (RGB) backside illumination corresponding 1/4.7 type MOS image sensors with an effective pixel count of 2,190,000 pixels to capture exceptional HD images and superb color reproduction even in dimly lit locations. The image processing circuit, which is tuned for professional use, produces highly natural gradation and sharp detail.

Easy Operation with Triple Manual Rings
The AC90A's lens barrel is equipped with manual rings for focus, zoom and iris operation to enable speedy, intuitive camera work generally associated with interchangeable lenses. The 3.5" tough-panel LCD monitor, which stores easily inside the top front part of the handle, has approximately 1,152,000 dots resolution to enhance focusing and includes focus assist, zebra and color bar display functions. The LCD monitor rotates 270 degrees for easy low-angle, high-angle and self-interview shootings.
