Panasonic Releases Updated AG-AF100A Camcorder
New Revision Adds 10-Bit 4:2:2 Output to Micro-4/3 Camcorder
Panasonic said it released the AG-AF100A, a new version of the micro-four-thirds AG-AF100 camcorder that adds 10-bit 4:2:2 output via HD-SDI for smoother color gradations when recording to external devices. Previously, the AF100 offered only 8-bit 4:2:2 output.
Also new in the AF100A is a sync signal for Rec Star/Stop, an expanded focus-assist function, and a 2.39:1 safe-zone indicator. The new PS recording mode is AVCHD v2.0-compliant, offering recording, and playback via HDMI output of 1080/59.94p and /50p images.
The AF100A is available now for a suggested list price of $4595. For more information: www.panasonic.com/broadcast
