The AG-AC8 full HD shoulder-mount camcorder is Pansonic's answer to the Canon's XA10 or Sony's MC2500E. It also comes packed with professional features and its fuller size will be of interest to videographers, the web-streaming community and education users. It also has dual slot recording and superb f1. 8 lens. With the Intelligent Auto you could just use it as a consumer camcorder, but if you want to be creative it's easy to make the step up with VCHD progressive recording modes that range from 1920x1080/50p max 28Mbps, 1920x1080/50i max 24Mbps through 1280 x 720 8Mbps (PM mode) and a steady shot assisted by a powerful 5-axis hybrid OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) makes for sharp images too.

This powerful, Full HD 1080p shoulder-mount camera features exceptional ergonomics, functionality and pricing. The 5-pound AC8 is ideal for shooting weddings, business conferences, documentaries, sporting events (including 720p at 8 Mbps), exhibits and government activities. It is supported by the industry?s best guarantee a 3-year limited warranty (1 year, plus 2 extra years upon registration).

Power Zoom Lens Provides More Choices
A powerful 21x optical/50x super-high-resolution zoom permits you to shoot scenes that you can't get close to. Intelligent resolution technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates, while preserving the image resolution. Its wide-angle 28mm/F1.8 lens allows you to fit more people and background into the frame, especially useful in narrow spaces.

Dual SD Card Recording
