I'm sure some of you must be waiting for the launch of this cam. Will this change the video world?
Panasonic to ship AG-AF100 from December: Digital Photography Review
(B & H photo already has it listed for $4,795).
Providing all the professional features expected in an interchangeable-lens camcorder--manual video and audio control, variable frame rates, HD-SDI and HDMI output, XLR inputs, timecode--the AG-AF100 plays its trump card with a large, 4/3"-type image sensor. At 13 times the size of comparably priced 1/3" sensors (and almost 4 times larger than the 2/3" sensors found in cameras costing more than twice as much), the AG-AF100's sensor brings the richness of DSLR video into a professional form factor.
I also wonder if we're about to see the demise of 3-chip camcorders. The color coming off single chip CMOS units is so good now that I really don't think it matters anymore.
