AC160a 1080/60p??

Hello all -

I thought this cam was able to shoot at 1080/60p.

Looking at the Panny website for this cam, I don't see a 1080/60p setting for this cam.

Can anybody let me know if I am reading the specs correctly or not?

The 160 has it, the 130 does not. There is a firmware update for the original AC160 that I applied to enable 1080p60 on the camera. I would assume the "A" version has it enabled already, but if not, a simple firmware update will do the trick.

That is correct. The 160 needs a firmware update free from Panasonic to get the ability to use 1080/60p. The 160a has it already installed.
