About the Panasonic AG-AF101A Camcorder
The AG-AF101A was introduced in November 2012. It replaces the AG-AF101 model and includes the following additonal features:
- 1080 60p/50p Recoding/Playback
- 1080 60p/50p HDMI output
- Focus Assist: adding “EXPAND”
- SDI: 10bit out
- Safety zone: adding “2.39:1”
- 4/3-type MOS Image Sensor
- A Low-Pass Filter for High-Quality HD Motion Images
- High-Performance 18-bit DSP
- Internal Optical ND Filter
- 7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation
Now featuring optional 1080 50p recording, the AF101A's large sensor delivery full 10-bit 4:2:2 SDI output for very high quality pictures. Where it stands apart from DSLRs and other large chip cameras is in its ergonomics: it handles like an ENG camera so will be familiar to operate and fast to use compared with other cinematic systems.
The imaging area of the new camera recorder is almost the same as that of 35mm cinema film and enables an exquisite film-like shallow depth of field. The short flange back distance of the Micro Four Thirds Mount allows the use of a wide range of lenses, including cinema lenses. In the AG-AF100 series, Panasonic has brought shallow depth of field control to a professional AVCCAM camera recorder. The AG-AF101 offers a new level of HD mot ion image quality with extended recording time, the variable frame rate function, and the operating system and system interfaces designed natively for video production. This lets the AG-AF101 record high-quality images with greater operating ease than even a digital SLR camera can offer. The AG-AF101 can unleash your creativity.
