£4000 is the price quoted by HD Magazine for the new AG-AF101 to be officially launched at IBC 2010. Now if this price is correct we are going to see an influx of DPs ordering this camcorder. The AF101 is due out during December 2010 but will be available in small quantities at first.
I have been bleating on about this camcorder for over a month now but it’s no secret that Scarlet has been put on the back burner knowing this camcorder is on it’s way to spoil the party.
There will also be an important announcement from Sony Broadcast from IBC about their FilmLike camcorder and I hope at least one of these professional models has 50Mbs or more though once again you can attach a NanoFlash via the HD SDI connector.
