AG-AF100: Panasonic’s Micro Four-Thirds Pro Camcorder Gets Priced And Dated (In Japan)

Back in April, Panasonic caused quite a big splash by teasing the AG-AF100, an interchangeable-lens camcorder for “professional users”. The Micro Four-Thirds device is the first of its kind, offering 1080/60i or 1080/30p AVCHD video recording and the ability to use a bunch of different lenses, adapters and filters with it (Micro Four-Thirds lens mount).

The AVCCAM also features SD/SDHC/SDXC compatibility, two-channel Audio XLR inputs, an HDMI interface, a USB 2.0 port, and HD/SD SDI output.

Panasonic Global just updated its English product page for the AF100 (click here) but hasn’t posted a press release as of this writing.

In Japan, Panasonic priced and dated the AF-100 (slightly renamed to AF-105) earlier today [JP]. It will be go on sale in December in this country, carrying a $9,980 price tag.
