Professional AVCCAM camera with powerful zooming capabilities, greater sensitivity and higher image quality

Different projects require different equipment capabilities and such demands put heavy expectations on the performance and flexibility of your equipment. None more so than with your main production tool; your camera. You need a high performance yet lightweight and versatile camera that lets you deal with the everyday requirements, while still being able to step up and take on the challenges of the most demanding shoot. The exceptional quality of the new range of Panasonic handheld cameras do just that and more.

High sensitivity image sensor and signal processing circuit

The AG- AC130AEN features the same Ultra Luminance Technology (U.L.T.) 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS image sensor that is incorporated in our shoulder type P2HD camera recorders. This advanced image sensor is set to maximise the performance of the lens and signal processing circuit under standard shooting conditions.

Broadcast-grade optical technology

The high-performance zoom lens was developed specifically for professional HD video production. While inheriting the wide-angle capabilities of the DVX and HMC Series, it adds the same level of operating ease as you'd expect from an interchangeable lens model for broadcasting and other professional uses. Combining 18 lens elements in 12 groups, this advanced lens unit further adds a UHR (Ultra High Refractive) glass element, a low dispersion element and aspherical lenses. In short, it raises resolution with the newest optical technologies available. Zooming from 28mm to 616mm (35mm equivalent), this 22x zoom lens covers a wide field of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, without a conversion lens. The lens unit is provided with three rings — a mechanical (cam-driven) zoom ring, a focus ring, and an iris ring. The positive operating feel of these rings gives you manual control similar to an interchangeable lens.

*Focusing time may vary depending on shooting conditions and object.

Multi-Format Professional AVCHD PH Mode

The AG- AC130AEN uses the AVCHD recording format and also supports the high-image-quality PH mode. AVCHD complies with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 High Profile, the latest motion picture compression technology. Boasting more than twice the compression efficiency of MPEG-2 systems (such as HDV), this advanced video file format delivers superb image quality and low data rates.

Versatile focus assist functions

The AG- AC130AEN features the Turbo-Speed One-Push Auto-Focus to focus an object in less than 0.5 seconds*. The focus bar indicates the focus level, the focus-in-red display shows the focus area, and a new expand function enlarges the centre of the displayed image. These three display functions help you to focus quickly and accurately. A face detection function is also provided, and area auto focus and area auto iris are possible.
