Panasonic has outed some more images and details on its new AG-AF100 camcorder, which teased earlier this year. As part of the AVCCAM camcorder line-up, many of the specs for the new AG-AF100 are predictable. However, the interchangeable lens format, and larger format sensor on the AG-AF100 suggest it might be another game changer.
The AG-AF100 features an HD-SDI output, XLR audio 2 channel inputs with +48V phantom power, 48-kHz/16-bit two-channel digital audio recording, built-in stereo mic, time code recording, HDMI, remote control terminals and support for LPCM/Dolby-AC3.
Additionally, the new camcorder features 2 SD card slots compatible with the SDXC format. Current SDXC cards go as high as 64GB in capacity; however, the SDXC standard provides for a formatted capacity of up to 2TB on a single card. Even with the current 64GB max capacity cards, the AG-AF100 will be able to record up to 12 hours of video to those cards in its highest-quality PH mode (at 24Mbps), and up to 48 hours in the lower quality HE mode.
The AG-AF100 offers a number of recording options, which include the following:
The 60p/50p frame rates will allow you to over-crank the frame rate for some nice slow motion sequences when played back at 30p or 24p. No word yet on price or availabilty; however, Panasonic had previously said that the AG-AF100 would be available later this year. You can check out the full brochure via the PDF link below.
