Panasonic AF100/AF101 + nanoFlash

Dear Friends,

These are exciting times as new cameras are coming out with larger sensors.

One example is the Panasonic AF100/AF101, which is generating quite a lot of excitement.

The image quality and versatility of the AF100/AF101 can be increased by adding a nanoFlash.

Here are some reasons to add the nanoFlash to the new camera, which is scheduled to ship in December.

And of course, the nanoFlash may be used with a wide variety of other cameras
and may be upgraded to nano3D, if desired.

• Improvement in Image Quality
......... 4:2:2 versus recording 4:2:0 in-camera
......... High-Bit Rate recordings
.............1. Up to 280 Megabits per second (Mbps)
.............2. In camera recordings limited to 21 Mbps Average, 24 Mbps max, AVCHD
......... Very low noise recordings
......... Free from Artifacts
......... Can handle excessive detail, excessive motion
• Versatility
......... Choose bit rate to suit your needs, 18 to 280 Mbps
......... Balance image quality versus recording time
......... May be used with a wide variety of other cameras
......... Many advanced recording options
......... Excellent Playback Device, far better than Blu-ray
• Fast and Easy Editing
......... Fast, Responsive Editing (more responsive than editing AVCHD)
......... Simple Workflow – Just Drag and Drop footage into your editor
......... Widely supported by all professional Non-Linear Editors
......... Free “Re-Wrap” tools: MOV>MXF for both PC and Mac
• Uses Lower Cost, Higher Performance CompactFlash cards
......... CompactFlash cards are much faster than available SDXC cards
• Long Recording Time
......... 5.3 Hours at Broadcast Quality 50 Mbps, 4:2:2
......... 2.6 Hours at 100 Mbps, 4:2:2
......... 1 Hour at 280 Mbps 4:2:2
• Supports Pulldown Removal and native recording
......... Records native 1080p29.97, 1080p25, 1080p23.976
......... Records native 720p29.97, 720p25, 720p23.976
• Supports Time-Lapse Recordings
• Supports Image Flip, Image Flop, Image Flip + Image Flop
• Supports Hot Swapping of CompactFlash cards
• Offers Redundant Recording Capability, in-camera becomes the backup
• May be upgraded to nano3D for Stereoscopic Projects

Well put, my AF100 is on order. The only reason I am getting one is because of the HDSDI port for my Nano. I imagine the pictures will be fantastic.
Now to work on some clean looking powering options.

AF 100/101 HD-SDI Output Spec

Hi Dan & Jim:
Does anyone know yet what are the preliminary output specifications for the HD-SDI on the new AF 100/101 ? I understand the internal camera recorder to be using the AVCHD Codec @ 4:2:0 color space (??)

Dear Mark,

I understand that it is 4:2:2, 8-Bit.

Nanoflash and the AF100

Any word if there is a SWIT-style battery with a power plug being made for the AF100. I am trying to cut down how many different batteries I will need for this camera. Thanks for any help

Since the camera doesn't ship until Dec 27, it is a little premature to see third-party accessories for it yet. I presume that we will see a ton of accessories given the anticipated popularity of the AF-100. What and when is the question.

Actually Ned, I am starting to see "3rd Party" assesories popping up as well as different price point camera packages. My question was if anyone has heard a battery available or in development for the AF100 that can run both the Nano or AF100. I apologize if I wasn't clear enough.

Dear Jim,

While it is nice to use one battery to power both, we are working on a nice, small, light-weight battery system for the nanoFlash so that the camera can be powered with its normal battery and the nanoFlash powered by a 3.8 ounce battery.

We are very enthused about the AF100/AF101 and we will fully support it.

The nanoFlash is an ideal companion to the AF100/AF101.

Dear Jim,

It will record about three hours.

It is our existing 2-cell Lithium-Ion battery and a soft-case for the battery.

The battery is around $60, I do not have a price for the soft-case.
