    Could this be in response to the video quality on the OM-D?

    • O

  • jim

    Or in responce too the up and comming GH3 😀

    • P4INKiller

      How?

      • jim

        As in I hope a GH3 is on the cards soon, and that it is soo good they won’t be able to shift the rest of these things :)

  • pbrooks100

    Rebate also on B&H via Panasonic rebate form. Should be valid for other resellers too.

    “Receive a $500 American Express® -Branded Rewards Card with the purchase of a Panasonic AG-AF100 Large Imager Digital Cinema Camcorder.”

    Its not really a price drop, or at least much of one. The AF100 4 or 5 months ago was being bundled with the 14-140 for around $4400-$4700. The 14-140 lists for $700, do the math.

  • Berneck1

    I’m not making a decision on the OM-D until I see what the GH3 can do. The GH3 has to be close behind right?

    • http://www.43rumors.com/members/jules/ jules

      what is the OM-D is good enough regardless of what is rumored next?

  • Z

    AG-AF200? GH3? Weather sealed OM-D, fixed 2.8 zooms…
    This is some serious pro gear.
    2012 will be a crazy year for m4/3.

  • SteB

    The AF100 was just the first larger sensor camcorder at an affordable price. It now has more competitors. I notice there’s a fair few users of it noting how the hacked GH2 is capable of better recording of fine detail. I’d guess it’s just a price adjustment. Plus there might be a higher specification version coming along so a price adjustment is needed. From what I know, the divsion that makes the AF100 is virtually a different company than that which makes the G series m4/3 cameras and is not really influenced by either other m4/3 cameras or stills cameras generally.

    I hope this price reduction means my 10-bit 4:2:2 AF200 with P2 card slots will be released at NAB in April. My AF100 has made a lot of money, and the I’m sure the next iteration will as well…

    Re: the GH2— it does not hold a candle to the AF100 in real-world location production where many $$$ are on the line every hour.

    • P4INKiller

      So you need bigger cameras because money is on the line? I’m not sure I follow.

      • Esa Tuunanen

        GH2 outputs video only with limited bit depth (not good for editing) and in strongly compressed format, or more precisely clearly too heavily compressed without hacking firmware.
        And GH3’s (or what ever successor is called) sure AVCHD 2.0 compliancy quarantees again too heavy compression.

        • http://www.production1studio.com Evan Kimball

          I think the uncompressed audio, unlimited recorded times on two sd cards switching back and forth, the more advanced scene profile layout, and higher fidelity of the camera is what he is talking about. They really aren’t that big. Oh, and no tainted HDMI out, good old SDI with timecode. GH2 is great, but can’t really handle 60% of video jobs out there. They go well together though.

  • nicwalmsley

    Isn’t the simplest thing here, that maybe Panasonic has a new sensor coming?

  • Tulio

    Badly designed. It shows Panasonic are run by maketeers.

    • pdc

      @Tulio
      and you are an expert?
      Panasonic have very competent cameras, and are very competent sensor designers and manufacturers. There is no question that the Panasonic GH2 is the best “DSLR” video camera at the present time, and Panasonic are likely to keep abreast of the competition most of the time if not beat them much of the time.

    I have to ask… what’s that green thing in the photo?

    …and… all those lenses on the left called, is it ‘Ultra Prime’ – why I never heard about those?!

    • Sebastian

      The green thing is an “Arri PL mount-to-Micro 4/3” lens adaptor.

      The Ultra Prime lenses are high-quality manual focus-only cinema lenses. The motion picture industry has much higher demands on focus breathing, vignetting, color, contrast, image quality/resolution, build quality, precision during manual focus etc.

      Cinema lenses from Carl Zeiss, Angenieux, Fujinon, Canon, RED etc. can easily go well above $10,000 dollars.
