Handheld Camcorders
Capture Whatever's
Thrown at Them
Panasonic's new HDTV PRODUCER
The new AG-AC160 and AG-AC130 AVCCAM HD handheld camcorders incorporate high-sensitivity 1/3”, full-HD 2.2 megapixel 3-MOS imagers to capture native 1920 x 1080 HD images as well as DV images.
With the longest lens in their class (a wide 22X zoom with 3 independent adjustable rings for zoom/focus/iris), these solid-state cameras let you nail virtually every shot you’re after, even in dimly lit scenes. With a wide 28mm to 616 mm (35mm full frame equivalent) viewing angle, they cover most shooting situations without the need for a wide-angle conversion lens.
The AC160/130 record video in four pro AVCCAM HD recording modes, including the highest-quality PH mode (average 21 Mbps/Max 24Mbps), the HA mode (approx.17 Mbps), the extended recording HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps), and a PM mode (approx. 8 Mbps, 720p only), which is ideal for shooting sports training and web video.
Offering the same functionality as the AC130, the premium AC160 provides these additional top production features: variable frame rate recording in 1080p for slow- and fast-motion recording, Linear PCM audio, HD-SDI output, and switchability between 59.94Hz/50Hz for worldwide use.
Other invaluable features:
Records for up to 12 hours on two 64GB SDB cards in PH mode, with automatic clip spanning across the two cards;
22-step variable frame rate capability in 1080/23.98pN, 29.97p and 25p to support undercranking/overcranking for fast or slow-motion effects;
Two SD Memory Card slots for relay or simultaneous recording.
Records at 60Hz in the following HD formats in PH mode: 1080/59.94i, 1080/29.97p, 1080/23.98pN, 720/59.94p, 720/29.97p, 720/23.98pN; in HA and HE modes, they record in 1080/59.97i;
Records in DV at 480/59.94i, 480/29.97p, 480/223.98p;
At 50Hz, the AC160 also records in 1080/50i and 1080/25p, in 720/50p and 720/25p, and in 576/50i and 576/25p.
Pro interfaces include an HD-SDI output (AC160 only), HDMI output (AVCHD only), USB 2.0 (mini B-type), IEEE 1394 output (DV only), and a built-in stereo microphone.
Waveform and vectorscope display, focus assists, time code/UB recording; time/date stamp, zebra display, tally lamps, and 4-position ND optical filter controls,
Two locking XLR inputs with switches for mic/line, two RCA audio outputs, and +48V Phantom Power capability.
