Price point on an article I read put it at 6 grand.

Should definitely be an interesting camera.

I just got back from NAB, the price point is around $6,000. However, it may be at that point OR it may be lower. We'll know more by DV EXPO (December) when it comes out....


Here's a short video looking over the camera. I'm really sorry that the lighting was very poor and I had to use an LED Flashlight that I had for a fill-in light.

The image sensor if close in size to 35mm movie film, so getting a shallow DOF should be easy with this camera. It also records to SDHC Memory cards, just like the HMC40 & HMC150.

Af-100

This camera for Panasonic will bring back the push they experienced with the DVX-100. I still use my DVX and in general love the cinema look that camera gives right out of the box. I also have a Sony EX3 which is another fine camera but the AF-100, if Panasonic keeps to the agenda, will be a very good challenge to higher end cameras when used with something like the NanoFlash. I've heard that HD/SDI out-put with this kind of censor will make 4 K possible? Interesting considering Red's scarlet will be arriving sometime in the Fall of 2010. Except for the faster fps on the Red ... this camera will certainly put a dent in sales of the fixed lens low end scarlet.

I think you are spot on. This is a very exciting camera and well worth the 6k.

Now lets see what we have here. A camera with all the video qualities of a 2ti, (say $1000) with all the audio qualities of a H4n (say $350) . So let's add a bit to remove the 12 minute limit and the still photo stuff and to put everything in one box. Just because $20000 would have been a reasonable price for such a camera a few years ago does not mean that anything more than $2000 is reasonable for such a camera today.
