As a first in the UK I am bringing out a Blu Ray HD tutorial DVD of the Panasonic AF101 as a show special for BVE 2011. Basically it’s a quick start guide for your AF101, going over menu settings, tutorials, lens guide and lots more we will have an updated version of my twenty minute review plus lots more fresh footage adding up to 35-40mins of HD viewing.

Not only will you see me testing the AF101 against the Sony PMW-350 in a low light showdown (+18dB) but I will take you on one of my corporate jobs and show you the AF101 from behind the scenes. I will be taking you through the various menus, how to switch the camera to NTSC, show you how to use Panasonic’s AVCAM viewer and how to get your clips into Final Cut Pro 7. There will be a section that only contains AF101 footage just to let you see the quality in HD.

I will be on the H Preston Media stand (K10) at Earls Court demonstrating the AF101. We will have limited stock of the Blu Ray DVD’s for the show but you can purchase a copy by emailing me at

Why wait for the show…I can also send a copy to you via my PayPay account, all you need to do is email me and I can send you a PayPal payment request.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
