Quick Take: Panasonic AF100 PL Mount Camera.
Here is a little Quick Take video on the new Panasonic AF100 with a Birns and Sawyer PL mount adapter. The Panasonic AF100 is no DSLR killer. That is for sure. It is just another stupid video camera. A video camera with a decent sized sensor and the ability to wear cinema lenses. This makes a huge difference when shooting live events or documentaries. The best thing so far about the camera is the ability to record forever. The second best thing about this camera is the XLR inputs and audio monitoring. That’s about it. I found the ergonimics to be clunky at best. It is not nearly as fine tunable as our beloved DSLR’s. The 2X crop factor makes finding wide- angle lenses a bitch. Until I can really beat this camera up, I am still on the fence. We picked it up for a couple docs we are shooting in the upcoming months. I will try to follow up with more info soon.
