The imaging area of the new camera recorder is almost the same as that of 35mm cinema film and enables an exquisite film-like shallow depth of field. The short flange back distance of the Micro Four Thirds Mount allows the use of a wide range of lenses, including cinema lenses. In the AG-AF100 series, Panasonic has brought shallow depth of field control to a professional AVCCAM camera recorder. The AG-AF101 offers a new level of HD motion image quality with extended recording time, the variable frame rate function, and the operating system and system interfaces designed natively for video production. This lets the AG-AF101 record high-quality images with greater operating ease than even a digital SLR camera can offer. The AG-AF101 can unleash your creativity.
