Panasonic AG-AC130 1/3" 2.2-megapixel 3-MOS imager AVCCAM Hand-held Camcorder

The AG-AC130 AVCCAM HD handheld camcorder offers a high-sensitivity 1/3", full-HD 2.2 megapixel U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) 3-MOS imager to capture native 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 AVCHD utilizing the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec.

Coupling a 22X zoom lens (best in class) with three independent adjustable rings (zoom, focus and iris), recordings look clean and crisp, without image degradation or dropouts, and cover most shooting situations without the need for a wide-angle conversion lens.

The AC130 records video in four professional AVCCAM HD recording modes, including the highest-quality PH mode (average 21 Mbps/Max 24Mbps), the HA mode (approx.17 Mbps), the extended recording HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps), and a PM mode (approx. 8 Mbps, 720p only), which is ideal for shooting sports training and web video.

With two SD Memory Card slots for relay or simultaneous recording, the AC130 can record up to 12 hours on two 64GB SD cards in PH mode, with automatic clip spanning across the two cards. In addition to SDXC and SDHC cards, the AC130 supports Panasonic's new SDHC full Class 10 UHS-1 (Ultra High Speed) Memory Cards, with transfer rates of 90MBs — 4-1/2 times as fast as the previous generation of SDHC media.
