Panasonic-AValive to begin Shipping AG-HMC150 Camera in Sept 08

Pre order the Panasonic AG-HMC150 Here

Every once in a while, a product appears that completely re-defines its market segment, offering entirely new features and price performance levels. The critically acclaimed DVX100 was such a product and is still selling well almost 6 years later! Your customers were successful with it and so were you.

HD aspirations revisited in the spirit of the DVX100

The cooler than cool AG-HMC150 drew big crowds at the NAB Show. Why? Simply because it offers an unheard of Bang for the Buck, in a 1/3” three-chip hand held tapeless HD camcorder, while retaining the core versatility of the DVX100B. The HMC150 sports a 28mm lens right out of the box and a new PH Record mode (21 Mbps) which offers higher resolution with a host of recording formats including 24p. Add to that,amazing low light performance, long record & battery time and professional Audio capabilities at a price that will make it an instant hit with a wide range of AV Shooters, Indie Creators and Event Video professionals.

The AG-HMC150 represents a major step forward in the introduction of a next generation solid state HD camera that extends the six year successful track record of the popular DVX100 plus a lot more. The HMC150’s lightweight (lightest 1/3” 3CCD available), well-balanced professional design features a high performance wide-angle Leica 13X zoom lens, 24 and 30 frame progressive capture, both in 720 and 1080 formats, making it perfect for even high level projects. Designed from a clean sheet of paper with much customer input to our product development engineers, the HMC150 sports a Die Cast Alloy chassis and a Three year warranty (upon end user registration) that further endorses its reliability.
