Panasonic AG-AC30 is packed full of features like 1/3.1" BSI MOS Sensor, Built-In LED Light, 20x Optical Zoom Lens, 0.24" EVF / 3" LCD Touchscreen, and so on. It is an ideal camera for shooting events, corporate gatherings, sporting activities, among others.
It comes with a 1/3.1-inch BSI MOS sensor for enhanced low-light effectiveness. There is an incorporated 20x optical zoom lens, which makes the achievement of high-fidelity pictures a stroll in the park. The lens has a 49mm filter thread, and a focal length of between 29.5 and 612mm (16:9). With its 5-axis Hybrid O.I.S image stabilization feature, you can be sure of perfect reduction in image distortion caused by a shaky camera, especially when shooting with the hand. There are iris rings in the lens, which help you to control iris, zoom, and focus manually.
Our Take on the Panasonic AG-AC30:
The top handle of the Panasonic AG-AC30 Full HD Camcorder has an LED light so that there will be flawless illumination of subjects even when shooting in a poorly lit environment. With two viewfinders, tilt-up color, and pullout touchscreen, you can be more flexible with the way you use the camera. You will like the LCD touchscreen, which sits on top of the lens for effective viewing, particularly during handheld shooting. You have the opportunity of recording in Full HD that can reach 120 fps, and you can record in slow motion format.
Moreover, the AG-AC30 can record in MOV, MP4, as well as AVCHD formats, and there are two SDXC media card slots for effective storage. It records and shoots HD at 29.97p, 23.98p, 59.94p, and 59.94i in MOV/MP4 at 50Mb/s. Its sensor is specially designed to move the photosites’ frontal circuitry to the sensor’s substrate back. This will enable additional photons to reach the photosites for enhanced sensor sensitivity. There is an illuminated ring that changes from blue to red so that your subjects will know that you are recording.
Also, with its level indicator that you can activate, you can monitor the leveling of the camera during handheld shooting or when using a stabilizer. There is an in-built microphone, which boosts sound capturing during recording sessions. You will like the dual 3-pin XLR audio inputs for an external mic or line. Its lightweight is a plus, and that is why its maneuver is as easy as ABC during operations. It is your best bet if you want a product that will not disappoint you when it matters most.
