Panasonic AG-SFU100 Software Upgrade for AG-AF100. 1080 50p/60p upgrade software key for AG-AF100 series.
Panasonic has introduced a software upgrade to augment the recording and shooting functions of its popular AG-AF100 Large Imager HD Cinema Camera Recorder. The upgrade (AG-SFU100) will enable acquisition in the 1080/60p and 1080/50p HD recording formats (PS mode (maximum 28Mbps)), and will substitute the 2.39:1 aspect ratio marking for the current 2.35 marker.
Recording in the high-resolution 1080/60p and /50p master-quality formats is rapidly gaining popularity in broadcasting, sports and scientific analysis. The 2.39:1 marker in the AF100s viewfinder/LCD monitor will be valuable for narrative and documentary shooters, as it is a standard aspect ratio for presenting films in movie theaters.
