Panasonic AG-AC 120 Professional AVCAM 

Handy, Easy Shooting with a Level of Image Quality That Rivals Many Shoulder-Type Model

New to the Panasonic AVCCAM lineup, the AG-AC120EN Memory Card Camera Recorder offers a host of advanced functions. The lens and both camera and recorder sections have been significantly evolved by incorporating cutting-edge technologies. The newly developed 22x zoom lens boasts a wide field of view and operability much like an interchangeable lens. The high-sensitivity, low-noise, high-resolution 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) MOS image sensor and professional AVCHD PH mode ensure high- quality Full-HD 1920 x 1080 recording. The AG-AC120EN also has a DV (SD)* recording mode, further expanding its operability. And superb cost-performance is achieved by a simple design that offers the same high performance as higher-end models, without a viewfinder. These and other features allow the AG-AC120EN to support a wide range of needs, from professional image production to news gathering.

The high-performance zoom lens was developed specifically for professional HD video production. While inheriting the wide-angle capabilities of the DVX and HMC Series, it adds the same level of operating ease as you'd expect from an interchangeable lens model for broadcasting and other professional uses. Zooming from 28mm to 616mm (35mm equivalent), this 22x zoom lens covers a wide field of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, without a conversion lens.

Three Manual Rings — Zoom, Focus, Iris

The lens unit is provided with three rings — a mechanical (cam-driven) zoom ring, a focus ring, and an iris ring. The positive operating feel of these rings gives you manual control similar to an interchangeable lens.

Optical Image Stabilizer, Digital Zoom, ND Filter

• Hand-shake correction with the Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS). • A Digital Zoom function that can be assigned to a user button for 2x, 5x, and 10x magnification. in combination with the optical zoom, this function provides a telephoto capability up to 220x. • Four-position optical ND filter wheel.

High-Sensitivity, 2.2-Megapixel U.L.T. Image Sensor

The AG-AC120EN features the same Ultra Luminance Technology (U.L.T.) 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS image sensor that is incorporated in our shoulder-type P2HD camera recorders. This advanced image sensor is set to maximize the performance of the lens and signal processing circuit under standard shooting conditions.

High-End Camera Image Settings

• DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch) suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights. • 3-position gain selector plus Super Gain of +24 dB/+30 dB*. • Selectable 7-mode gamma settings including the CINE-LIKE gamma modes.
