Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa (PMMAF) has recently announced a new palm camcorder, the AG-AC30.

A 1-chip Full-HD camcorder, designed and built in Japan, the AG-AC30 is designed to help deliver professional-looking pictures in all environments.

The camcorder offers a newly designed lens capable of a very wide focal range (20x zoom and 29.5mm wide angle), three manual rings for focus, iris, and zoom and two-channel XLR audio inputs.

Weighing just 1.5kg, the compact camera includes a powerful, integrated LED video light, capable of 300 lx at one metre, that supports shooting in dim light, such as night time wedding parties and ‘run and gun’ interviews. It has a new 1/3.1-type back side illumination (BSI) sensor, which is larger than the sensor on the current model and offers excellent resolution and superb image quality.

It is equipped with an innovative ‘tally’ (an illuminating LED ring that clearly shows when the camcorder is recording), while a five axis hybrid Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS) corrects blurring in virtually all types of shooting, greatly improving stability while shooting on the move.

A new feature, the Level Shot, is a function that automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images and complements the OIS for professional looking pictures. The dual recording functionality can also ensure safe, secure, simultaneous recording so the user has instant fail safe backup.

The AG-AC30 will be available from September 2016 in the Middle East & Africa region - price to be announced.
