According to Panasonic's spec page:

Support video format: 1080i/50, 25p, 1080/59, 94i/29, 97p/23, 98p, 720/50p, 25p, 720/59, 94p/29, 97p/23, 98p

Which I think has several formatting errors (i.e. 29, 97p should be 29.97p)

The brochure they have says: 1080: 59.94i/50i/29.97p/25p/23.98p or 720: 29.94p/50p/29.97p/25p/23.98p



So the 50 and 60 @ 1080 are 50i and 60i

That makes more sense to me Michael. Too bad the bit rate is so low. Would be nice to see 422 50Mb/s at least if not 100Mb/s.

Who knows all of the detail about the AG-AF100?
 
1. Does anyone know for a fact whether the AG-AF100 can utilize ONLY Micro 4/3 mount lenses (natively without an adapter) or can it also (natively) use regular 4/3 mount lenses as well?

2. Is the run time of 720 minutes with two 64GB SDXC cards in the best quality mode?

3. Does anyone have any links to Micro 4/3 to Nikon F mount lens adapters? Is this something I should be looking on Ebay for.

Thanks,

Dan

1. The AF100 can only use micro 4/3 lenses natively (without an adapter).

2. Yes, the 12 hours of recording time with two 64GB cards is in PH mode. PH mode is the highest quality setting.

3. I have heard good reviews on this m4/3 to Nikon F mount adapter: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/658892-REG/Voigtlander_BD332A_Micro_4_3_to_Nikon.html

Your website has the $4795 price slashed through with "TBD" next to it. What does that mean?

John Vincent September 29th, 2010 11:13 PM

They might not be able to actually show a front page price (seems to happen a lot). Might have to order it and see the price in the cart...

Either way, an encouraging sign for lovers of the non-DSLR form factor.

In that review Barry did on the camera he said something about variable frames rates that can record in 1080 60p. Was that an error because looking at spec's I see 1080 60i. How much are the lenses slated to sell for? Barry said we can use our canon lenses. Does this mean I can take any Canon L lens and attach it to this bad boy?

Paul Cronin October 7th, 2010 04:40 PM

Greg I heard the same thing 1080p 60p in slow motion mode. Wow

Brad thanks for posting the video with Barry going over the camera. The more I hear about this camera the more I like it. Fills so many gaps. Look forward to seeing one in person and testing it out when then hit the market.

The MAP (minimum advertised price) on the camera is $4795, which Panasonic announced to retailers officially a few days ago. So you won't find it listed cheaper than that. We have our pre-order list going here - Panasonic AG-AF100 Micro Four Thirds Professional HD Camcorder :: Compact HD Cameras :: Cameras :: Equipment Sales :: Abel Cine Tech

Anyone have any suggestions on bundles they would like? We have a few in mind, but I'd like input.

Paulo Teixeira October 7th, 2010 10:42 PM

A case to fit the camera, lenses, etc.

1 or 2 high capacity memory cards.

Lens adapters to connect with lenses from other companies.

Choices of either a NanoFlash, Ki Pro Miini, or a Ninja.

For lenses you could easily have a bundle with either the 14-140, 20mm or the 7-14mm Panasonic lenses. You can also have all 3 or add the new 100-300mm lens.

GH2. I read that some people are planning to buy that as a second camera and besides, it's also one way to get the 14-140 lens cheaper.

This was a misunderstanding in which Barry Green had to re-explain.
He only meant that the chip outputs 1080 60p but gets recorded to either 24p or 30p for slow-motion. Their is also mention of a possibility to play the clip at 200% speed and and use an external audio source. In theory that can probably give you true real time 1080 60p speed.

I do wish Panasonic would reconsider offering 1080 60p as a real time recording mode.

Greg Harris October 8th, 2010 09:32 AM

Agreed, 1080 60p would be so NICE to have. 720 60p is great but I don't understand how 1080 60p could be so hard to develop.

Any idea on how much these lenses will run?

Andy:
FWIW, I rarely buy bundles with memory cards, bags, etc, because like most guys I've got a closet full of them. Lenses however... :)

Here are two that would be a no-brainer for most bundles:
-Panasonic 20mm f1.7
-Panasonic 25mm f1.4

And then for a zoom:
-Olympus 14-35mm f2.0
I don't think Panny makes one that fast. However, that's almost 1/2 the price of the AF100, so here are two other's that people on budgets might jump at:
-Olympus 14-54 f2.8-3.5
-Panasonic 14-50 f2.8-3.5 OIS
(I don\'t know if/how well OIS lenses are going to work on the AF100, I\'m assuming it doesnt have it built in.
