Panasonic AG-AF100 First Impressions Review
The AG-AF100 has plenty of limitations, but it's still a loaded camcorder for pros.
The AG-AF100 is Panasonic's version of a compact, interchangeable lens camcorder with professional-grade controls and features. The camcorder uses the Micro Four Thirds sensor and lens mount system, which is the same system in place on Panasonic's line of Lumix interchangeable lens cameras.
The AF100 isn't as exciting or as impressive as the new 4K camcorders on display this year at NAB—like the Canon C500 and the Sony NEX-FS700—but its $4995 price tag makes it a much cheaper option. The AF100's most direct competition comes from the Sony NEX-FS100, which, like the AF100, made its debut at last year's NAB show.
