Panasonic Ships New Cinema Camera
Panasonic Solutions Co. has announced that it is now shipping orders of its new AG-AF100 4/3-inch sensor HD camcorder.
The unit was designed to meet the demands of film and video production companies for a camera that could produce a shallow “film-like” depth of field, and also provide a wider field of view.
“The design of the AF100’s advanced, custom-designed 4/3-inch sensor affords depth of field and field of view similar to that of 35mm movie cameras in a more affordable camera,” said Jan Crittenden Livingston, product line business manager at Panasonic Solutions Co.
“What’s more, Panasonic engineering ingenuity has resolved the aliasing and moirÃ© that has haunted the DSLR shooter. In fact, the AF100 was based on what we heard from and saw customers doing: purchasing DSLR cameras because they liked the look of the image, but then agonizing over all of the workarounds required to achieve an acceptable high definition recording.”
