Product Description

The Panasonic AG-AC90 AVCCAM Handheld Camcorder features 1/4.7" 3MOS sensors, with 2.19MP each, to capture Full HD 1920x1080 resolution video. Variable frame rates record HD video at 60p, 60i, 30p, and 24p. The camera's fixed lens has a 12x zoom ratio, up to f/1.5 brightness, a 35mm equivalent of 29.8-357.6mm and manual control rings for focus, zoom and iris. In addition, Nano Surface Coating works to reduce ghosting and flare.

The AG-AC90 has two SD card slots for expanded memory or simultaneous recording to both cards for an instant back-up. A five-axis image stabilizer improves stabilization for handheld shooting, and 4x pixel shifting technology helps to create a sharper image. An Intelligent 25x digital zoom function makes automatic adjustments of edge, gradation and detail.

Professional AVCCAM HD recording modes include PS mode, which records 1080/60p at 28 Mbps. Additionally, PH mode averages 21-24 Mbps, and HA mode clocks in at approximately 17 Mbps. Finally, for extended recording times, HE mode uses approximately 6 Mbps. The AG-AC90 is compatible with Panasonic's ultra high-speed UHS-1 series of memory cards, as well as SDXC and SDHC cards.

In addition to the built-in microphone, two XLR audio inputs provide an interface for professional grade, external microphones. Audio Channel 1 and Channel 2 feature individual level controls and input selection.

Dollar for dollar, the AC90 is the probably best prosumer camera on market as of August 2013. I work as a professional cameraman shooting everything from big TV cameras, to prosumer cameras like this for smaller events. I've owned or used the Panasonic DVX100, HVX200, HPX170, AC160, and this. I'll try to compare it a little to those, other cameras in this class, but mostly on it's own merits.

Here are some pro's and con's. I believe the pro's completely outweigh the cons, thus the cons are more for your awareness than criticism or faults with the camera.

Pro:

* Great touchscreen LCD. It is very bright as well and decent in direct sunlight.
* Great stabilizer. Very impressive. Maybe the best I've ever used.
* Great price. This unit is comparable to Canon and Sony cameras costing a couple hundred dollars more.
* Digital zoom virtually lossless at 2x. This means you've basically got a 24x zoom lens. Great for events.
* Autofocus superior to AC series, which had problems with speed and finding focus and required (not free) firmware upgrades.
* 3 Chips. This is nice to see when Canon has moved to single chip with XA-10 and XA-20 series in it's class.
* Over and undercranks at 1080, including time lapse. This is a really nice feature that you used to have to hack in the HVX and HPX series.
* Two card slots. Many cameras today are coming with one single slot, so this is nice to see.
* 3 rings on lens (focus, zoom, iris). I like having these on the lens, and the AC90 does.
* Dual XLR inputs, on-board surround microphone works surprisingly well for capturing ambient sound (not dialog though).
* Intelligent Auto setting handy. I use the camera in manual, but for many the IA setting could be very useful.

My school TV station (WHBS) bought this camera last week and it arrived a few days ago. I was the one to test this and here are my test notes. (Current camcorders are Canon GL1s and GL2s, and Ikegami HC-400Ws). We are going from DV tapes recording in 480i (30fps) to 1080p (30fps)

The package came with the camera, a lens cover, 2 covers for the XLR jacks, a Mini-USB cable, a cable for component/composite, a neck strap, and stuff for a microphone mounting clamp.

Exterior..................

Build quality is solid. I'm not sure exactly sure what its made of (metal or plastic) but it doesn't feel cheap. One thing that I like about this is that the handle at the top has grooves for the fingers so its very comfortable to hold. One gripe is that its very front heavy. The whole camera itself isn't very heavy, but the front lens is heavier than the rear (even with the battery) so its not very stable when put down - it rests on the lens hood. Speaking of the battery, the battery is quite thick, but when it's in the camera, its still inside the camera; it doesn't protrude out, which was surprising, but welcome. (Extended battery will be possible). The lens has three rings for zoom, focus and iris, and I found them to be very responsive and smooth. It takes a little force (just enough that its hard to accidentally move the ring, but easy to turn when you want to). I also didn't have problems with lagging with the rings. It's there, but i didn't find it to be noticeable unless I was looking for it. The only thing with the LCD is that while it slides into the handle, which is nice, when it comes out, the hinge of the LCD is very flimsy. We need to be gentle when taking it out.

I received this pro-camcorder this week, and from the very little time that I've used it I'm very pleased with it. I purchased my AG-AC90 from an authorized Amazon store here on amazon.com, Willoughby's. Fast shipping! Ordered on-line here on amazon.com late Saturday evening March 9 and received it here in NJ on Tuesday, March 12.

I'm very satisfied with this pro-camcorder. I am impressed with it's low light performance, considering the camera's low price. Fully auto mode is good, but I use most of the controls manually. I've only used the camera's internal mic, and the audio is good. The internal mic's 5.1 surround setting is great. I've not used my Rode boom mic yet for testing. But I know that it will be good enough for me.

The user manual states that you MUST format the SD card in the AG-AC90. DO NOT format the SDHC/SDXC card in your computer. Also, when you transfer the SD card's video data from the card to your computer, be sure to copy the entire "Private" folder, which is created on SD card by the AG-AC90, to your computer's hard drive or external hard drive. DO NOT simply copy the .mts files from the SD card, copy the entire "Private" folder from the SD Card to your computer. The files on the SD card are continual while on your editing software's timeline, without stutter or hesitation. The only issue is when you have the AC90's settings for the SD cards to automatically continue from SD Card #1 to SD Card #2, there will be a 1/2 second loss of audio only, not video. Not a deal big deal to me.

I've had no issues with editing the created files from the AC90 to my editing software. I use FCP 7, FCP X, Adobe Premiere CS6, and Adobe Premiere Elements 10. Also, for the best "live" look quality, use the 1080 60p setting.
