For those of you watching what else is going on in the below $10,000 price range of cameras, you probably know a bit about the new Panasonic AG-AF100… well, Panasonic has confirmed a December 27 ship date and firmed up the $4,995 price for AG-AF100 Micro Four Thirds video camera.

From engadget:

The headline pretty much says it all here — Panasonic has now finally cleared up that its AG-AF100 Micro Four Thirds video camera will begin shipping on December 27th, and pack a suitably professional price tag of $4,995. In case you’ve forgotten about it since it’s debut way back in April, the camera offers a slew of fairly high-end features including native 1080/24p recording, variable frame rates, and professional audio capabilities — and, while $5,000 isn’t exactly cheap, it will let you keep costs down somewhat by supporting a whole range of standard Micro Four Thirds lenses, filters and adapters. Head on past the break for the complete press release.

I saw a gentleman at the LA AUTO SHOW shooting with one. The camera looks very sleek but stealthy in public. Myself and another fan followed him for a few shots. :)


The fact that this has an option for uncompressed HDMI/HDSDI out is going to be amazing. The heavily compressed native codec may be suitable for wedding and low-mid range productions.
