The Panasonic AG-AC160A AVCCAM HD Handheld Camcorder is an upgraded version of the AG-AC160. The upgrade consists of the addition of 1080/60p and 50p recording (max. 28Mbps in PS mode), expanded focus assist functionality, and a inchturbo speedinch one-push auto focus function. 60p/50p capture capacity gives you excellent control over slow-motion. Shooting in 60p, you can play back 24p for a 2.5x slow-motion effect. With expanded focus assist you can zoom in on an image to check focus. And one-push auto focus affords the option of very quickly attaining focus in circumstances requiring on-the-go focusing. As for other features, the AG-AC160A is a high-definition workhorse of a professional handheld camcorder that integrates seamlessly with a wide range of current broadcast video systems in place around the world. With an integrated 22x zoom lens and a 1/3-type 3MOS three-element imager, the camera captures AVCHD video to two SD/SDHC/SDXC card slots as 1080p60, 1080p30, 1080i60, filmic 1080p24, and 720p60. But that's not it for frame rates: for creative slow-/fast-motion effects, overcranking and undercranking are possible at a variety of rates between 2 and 60 frames per second. For worldwide compatibility, the AC160A also captures a variety of 50 Hz video signals for easy integration with PAL projects and video systems. The AC160A features Panasonic's professional-level PS implementation of AVCHD. It's a top-quality choice at a max rate of 28 Mb/s; several other data rates will conserve card space as you capture hours of HD video. For projects that require standard-def capture, the AC160A has you covered with DV recording, which can then be output via its 6-pin IEEE 1394 (FireWire) port. For high-def output, the HD-SDI terminal puts out HD signals including 1920 x 1080 at 24PsF. The AC160A offers a bevy of other professional-level features, including dual XLRs with phantom power, SMPTE time-code generation, gamma settings for seven different scenarios, and manual control rings for iris, zoom, and focus. To monitor the status of all settings, and to perform critical focusing functions, the AVCCAM camcorder features both a high-quality 3.45inch LCD screen and a full-color LCoS 0.45inch viewfinder with 1,226,000 dots (852 x 480 x 3 [RGB]) of resolution. (Current owners of the AC160 can simply have the upgrades added to their cameras. The 60p/50p capacity upgrade is free and you can perform it yourself, but the other two additions would include a hardware modification and are offered for a total of $300 at a Panasonic Authorized Service Center.) New Upgrades over the AG-AC160 The AG-AC160A is an upgraded version of the AG-AC160. The upgrade consists of the addition of 1080/60p and 50p recording (max. 28Mbps in PS mode), expanded focus assist functionality, and a inchturbo speedinch one-push auto focus function. 60p/50p capture capacity gives you excellent control over slow-motion.

The Panasonic AG-HMC40 is a camcorder designed to record in high definition on standard SecureDigital (SD) and SDHC memory cards. The camera is extremely portable and lightweight, weighing in at just over 2 lbs. While SD-based camcorders have been gaining ground in the consumer market, the AG-HMC40 has the ability to record AVCHD images at significantly higher bitrates. This enhancement makes the camera more efficient than comparable HD interframe codecs, such as HDV and XDCAM EX. Using H.264 as its compression algorithm the camera can record incredibly detailed images at a fraction of the file size. The handle is detachable and can hold an optional XLR audio system. Note! XLR option not included. 3MOS Sensor Technology The progressive 3MOS image sensors record full-HD images with an effective motion-picture resolution of 2.51-megapixels. This produces full-raster HD images with high resolution and superb image quality. Because each of the three separate image sensors receives one of the three primary colors of light (red, green and blue), they render more precise images and more faithful colors than the single light-receiving 1MOS sensor. Sharp Rendering With a lens that features 13 elements in 10 groups, the newly developed Leica Dicomar is ideal for full-HD recording. The new lens system uses low-dispersion glass and aspherical lenses to reduce color aberration and boost resolution. Use of a special multi-coating process dramatically reduces flare and ghosts. The result is a sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered picture with vivid colors, delicate nuances, and exceptional shading. 120x Digital Zoom Even at the 490mm zoom setting (35mm lens equivalent), this advanced 12x optical zoom lens is free of image degradation. Additionally, the AG-HMC40 is also equipped with a digital zoom that instantly magnifies the image by any of three fixed values. 2x, 5x or 10x. Use it together with the 12x optical zoom lens and you get super magnification equivalent to a 120x zoom, without the drop in light intensity that happens when using a lens extender. Optical Image Stabilization Because the hand-shake correction is done by actually driving the lens, there's none of the image degradation that occurs with electronic stabilization. You can capture beautiful, high-quality shots even in situations where hand-shake is typically a big problem such as when zooming, shooting indoors in dim lighting, or shooting outdoors at night. Dynamic Range Stretch A gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match the contrast of each pixel, and applied in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images that result are enhanced by a visually wider dynamic range. High-quality 10.6 MegaPixel Digital Stills The new 3MOS sensors also combine with Panasonic's proprietary Quad-Density Pixel Distribution technology to achieve a resolution that is equivalent to 4 times the normal level. The AG-HMC40 captures still images with approx. 10.6-megapixel resolution (in still image mode, 3:2 aspect ratio), which approaches the level of a high-performance digital still camera. For example, you can use it to shoot both motion and still images for a website. Cine-Like Gamme Curves Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam HD camcorders for digital cinema, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HMC40 with advanced gamma functions that address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities. This includes the cine-like gamma, which produces the characteristic warm tone of film recordings. Exceptional AVCHD Image Quality The AG-HMC40 features the image-enhancing PH mode that Panasonic developed exclusively for AVCCAM camcorders. It delivers a maximum AVCHD bit rate of 24 Mbps (average: 21 Mbps). Designed for professional image production, this mode lets you reco

The Panasonic AG-HVX200A is a P2-based camera that answers the demands of nearly any professional videographer. The camcorder builds on the overwhelming success of the original AG-HVX200, with the addition of some much sought-after revisions. The most important new feature is an updated sensor, which yields higher sensitivity, creating less noise in low-light situations. With its compact and feature-rich frame, the AG-HVX200A will never disappoint. The unit is compatible with DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO25 and consumer DV recording standards. 16:9 Progressive 3CCD Sensor The HVX200A is equipped with a 1/3inch 16:9 progressive 3CCD imager (effective resolution of 1.1 million active pixels with a spatial offset) that delivers outstanding image quality. It offers lower smear and a higher S/N ratio that results in lower noise and better low light performance than the prior model. The HVX200A's image quality is also enhanced by a new high-performance digital signal processor (DSP) featuring 14-bit A/D conversion and 19-bit inner processing. Equivalent to the processors used in many higher-end HD cameras, this new DSP ensures precise, beautiful recordings in all video formats. Because the HVX200A scans at native 1080p for the initial picture processing, users get the highest level of vertical resolution, whether shooting in HD or SD. Wider Angle (13X) Leica Dicomar Zoom Lens The camera's lens system features a large 82mm diameter filter including three aspherical lenses. With its powerful 13x zoom lens, the camera offers a wide 30.3mm (35mm equivalent) viewing angle, covering most shooting situations without the need for a wide-angle conversion lens. The lens also features an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) function that ensures stable images during shooting. Variable Frame Rates for Fast- or Slow-Motion Effects The HVX200A offers variable frame rate capability, providing the cinematic expression of higher-end cameras like the Panasonic VariCam AJ-HDC27. In 720p mode, the HVX200A's frame rate can be set from 24p/30p to any of 20 steps between 12p and 60p, allowing for undercranking/overcranking for fast or slow-motion effects in 720p. These effects can be dubbed to a DV tape after recording to offer unique capabilities in the SD mode. Outstanding P2 HD Reliability and Flexibility, Plus DV Recording Offering the vast advantages of P2HD solid-state acquisition as well as a miniDV tape mechanism for shooting in SD, the HVX200A is ideal for transitioning from an older standard definition, tape-based infrastructure to a file-based, high definition production.

The XF300 Professional Camcorder represents Canon's entry into professional solid state video acquisition. Following on the heels of its widely respected XH line of tape-based camcorders the XF300 takes advantage of the latest HD technology--along with Canon's newly developed MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec--to record Full HD video to affordable Compact Flash cards. Nearly everything you'd want in a handheld pro-level camcorder is here in one sleek package:three 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensors multiple bit rates (up to 50Mbps) variable resolution and frame rates industry-standard MXF file wrappers a newly developed L-Series 18x zoom lens HDMI/Component/Composite outputs and full image customization. With its exceptional levels of image quality ergonomics and control the XF300 is the perfect tool for applications such as ENG documentaries independent features and event videography. MPEG-2 50Mbps Codec Canon's adaptation of MPEG-2 for the XF300 Professional Camcorder named the Canon XF Codec ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure and non-linear editing (NLE) systems.And by using an MXF file wrapper video and audio can be wrapped in a single file along with important metadata. The codec's 50Mbps constant bit rate provides the bandwidth needed to capture the XF300's superior resolution and color in spectacular detail. 4:2:2 Color SamplingThe XF300 supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution up to 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 color sampling. 4:2:2 color sampling provides twice the color resolution of HDV and other codecs that use 4:2:0 color sampling. 4:2:2 provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color and maintains the highest quality image for use in post production processes such as chroma keying color grading advanced compositing and effects

AVC HD At Your Fingertips AVCHD is a variation on interfame codecs such as HDV and XDCAM. The advantage is that it uses a standard H.264 compression algorithm, making it highly efficient without sacrificing large portions of memory. Less bandwidth allows the camera to record directly to SD and SDHC media. • Good Things Come In Small Packages The AG-HMC150 will feel much like the acclaimed AG-DVX100, as opposed to its more similar and larger cousin, the AG-HVX200. Reducing weight makes the camera easy to hold; at 4.2 lbs the camera is very comfortable on long shoots. • SD and SDHC Flash Memory Recording Storage The AG-HMC150 provides AVC HD video in a class of its own. The ability to record up to 24Mb/s onto a single SDHC makes the camera not only incredibly versatile, but allows users to record onto inexpensive media. • Superior Quality Lens The 13x zoom lens system features 13 lens elements in 10 groups, including three aspherical lenses. Panasonic has reduced the front lens element from 67mm on the AG-HVX200 to 53.2mm on the AG-HMC150. The use of low-dispersion glass reduces color aberration while a multi-coating process minimizes flare and ghosting. • Super Sensitive CCDs Each pixel has a large light-receiving area, giving this advanced 1/3inch progressive CCD the kind of high sensitivity not available in previous compact HD cameras. This advanced CCD combines with a newly developed 14-bit digital signal processor (DSP) to achieve a balance of high resolution and high S/N ratio that rivals even the most sophisticated HD broadcasting cameras. • Advanced Digital Signal Processor The camcorder's advanced digital signal processor uses 14-bit A/D conversion and 19-bit inner processing to attain unprecedented accuracy. While the camera does not record 1080/60p, it is from this capture that all other signals are made. The DSP performs a variety of adjustments, including eight types of gamma settings, for each of the R, G and B channels. It also converts the signals to HD or SD format. With a performance equivalent to the processors used in many higher-end HD cameras, this DSP helps the camera deliver beautiful images in all video formats. • Optical Image Stabilizer The optical image stabilization system ensures glass smooth images even with moderate shaking while shooting hand-held. Extra-long record times - one 32GB SDHC card can hold up to 3 hours in the PH mode mode, 4 hours HA, 5.3 hours at HG mode and 12 hours in the HE mode. Records in a full range of HD formats including 1080/60i, 1080/30p, 1080/24p; 720/60p, 720/30p, 720/24p 1/3inch 3-CCD progressive image system with excellent sensitivity, superb color reproduction and resolution Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) that ensures stable images, critical to high definition video display 13X 28mm to 368mm (35mm equivalent) Leica Dicomar™ wide-angle zoom lens Superb Manual Auto focus In-camera Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope and two Focus assist displays A host of advanced video functions like Cinelike Gamma and Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) Professional-level connections including HDMI out, Component Out (D Terminal), Composite Out and RCA Audio out jacks, XLR audio inputs, USB 2.0 for file transfer, remote control for Zoom, Iris, Focus, Start/Stop Features three neutral density filters and three user sets Two locking XLR inputs with switches for mic/line, +48V Phantom Power, Auto/Manual level, and internal/external assignment Useful time/date stamp feature for applications like legal depositions or surveillance Includes professional-level assist functions like waveform monitor, vectorscope and two focus displays Variety of editing solutions (Render files to almost any format or media) Built with a durable, die-cast magnesium chassis frame for reliable performance in tough environments Lightweight (under 6lbs.), handheld design similar to the popular AG-DVX100
