Panasonic introduces new camera recorder

Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions will release the new AG-AF101A Series Memory Card Camera Recorder this month. The AG-AF101A Series is an HD AVCCAM camera recorder with a Micro Four Thirds mount. It can use a wide range of lenses including Micro Four Thirds compatible DSLR lenses and Cinema lenses with a mount adapter. The AG-AF101A Series also features two-channel XLR audio input terminals. In addition to the PH mode (average approx. 21Mbps, maximum 24Mbps), the AG-AF101A Series complies with the AVCHD ver. 2.0 (AVCHD Progressive) standard in its new PS mode (average approx. 25Mbps, maximum 28Mbps) for recording, playing and outputting (via HDMI only) Full-HD progressive (1080/59.94p, 1080/50p) images. The PS/PH modes support uncompressed 16-bit LPCM 2-channel audio recording. The AG-AF101A Series has the ability to output HD signals with 10 bit 4:2:2 quality via the camera’s live output function and record onto the external devices, such as P2 Recorder, compatible with 10-bit recording through SDI. The P2 Recorder also syncs Rec Start/Stop with the AG-AF101A series trigger. The AG-AF101A Series is equipped with the expand focus assist function, which enlarges the centre of the displayed image, and 2.39:1 (cinema scope size) safety zone
