Solid-State Reliability The powerful new tapeless AG-HMC150 joins the Panasonic line of professional HD camcorders. This new AVCCAM camcorder features highly-acclaimed functions for the popular AG-DVX100 Series of DV-tape based camcorders to tapeless HD recording. Using the cost-saving AVCHD format to record onto SDHC or SD Memory Card media, the AG-HMC150 produces exceptional images and responds to creative production needs.
This translates into lower costs and easier maintenance, greater energy savings, and less waste when the unit is eventually disposed of. All of these features help to conserve the environment. Panasonic is a leader in creating and promoting the advantages of memory-card recording, both in its AVCCAM camcorders and P2 HD broadcast and professional systems, through a program called the AVCCAM 3-Year Warranty Repair Program.
This results in sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered images with delicate nuances and exceptional shading. *HD camcorders with integrated lens and 1/3-inch CCD, as of July 2008 (according to a Panasonic survey) Image of an angle of view equivalent to 32.5 mm...
7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HMC150 with advanced gamma functions that address eight different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities. This includes the cinelike gamma, which produces the characteristic warm tone of film recordings.
High Profile standard to improve compression efficiency. Featuring twice the compression efficiency of HDV (MPEG-2), the AG-HMC150 achieves extended HD recording. The following four new technologies make this possible. Sample comparison: When a flash causes large contrast differences and reduces depth perception, HDV shows considerable block noise, while AVCHD in the PH mode minimize break-up.
720/30p (over 60p) 720/24p (Native)* *1: 24p=23.98p, 30p=29.97p, 60p=59.94p and 60i=59.94i *2: In the Native mode, AG-HMC150 record only active frames. Large-Capacity SDHC Memory Cards Enable Extended-Time Recording SDHC Memory Cards are available with up to 32 GB of memory (AG-SDV032G).
The servo-driven zoom also allows slow zooming. The AG-HMC150 is equipped with a digital zoom that instantly magnifies the image by any of three fixed values — 2X, 5X or 10X. Use it together...
Definition Multimedia Interface) output terminal for digital transferring of high-quality HD video and audio signals. *A separately purchased cable may be required for connecting the AG-HMC150 to a professional monitor. PC Connection via USB 2.0 The standard USB terminal (Type mini B) allows the AG-HMC150 to connect to a PC in device mode.
*Correct operation should be possible with a nonlinear editor that has been confirmed for compatibility with a Panasonic HDC-SD9 camcorder, for data recorded using the same HA, HG, and HE recording modes as on consumer AVCHD equipment. Collaboration to confirm compatibility with the new PH mode is now under way with Adobe, Apple, GrassValley, and other partner companies.
