About the Panasonic AG-AF100A

The AG-AF100 is a full HD 1080/720 production camera that offers superior video handling, native 1080/24p recording, variable frame rates, professional audio capabilities, and compatibility with SDHC and SDXC media. The AF100 delivers the shallow depth of field and wider field of view of a large imager, with the flexibility and cost advantages of a handheld camcorder. The AF100 is the next-generation, go-to HD camera that costs less, yet delivers so much more than other models in its class.

The design of the AF100's 4/3-inch sensor affords depth of field and field of view similar to that of 35mm movie cameras and also affords the full range of cinematic requisites. Equipped with an interchangeable lens micro 4/3" mount, the AF100 has the ability to use virtually any professional quality lens with the addition of an easily obtainable adapter, from low-cost still camera lenses as well as film-style lenses with fixed focal lengths, prime lenses, and zoom lenses. It's equipped with the full range of controls a cinematographer relies on: exposure, adjustable zebras, pedestal and detail, a vectorscope and waveform monitor, and much more.
