Product Expert camcorders

The Panasonic AG-AC30 is a professional video camera that can be used in dark situations, thanks to the integrated LED video light. This lets you easily illuminate a subject. You can soften the light and adjust the color temperature with the 2 included lamp filters. You can firmly hold the camera with the handle. The 5-axis image stabilization prevents motion blur when you're recording by hand. The device has 2 SD card slots so you can make relay recordings. While doing this, the camera automatically switches memory cards when 1 card is full. The camera has 2 XLR inputs to connect professional microphones.
