Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

Was looking through some old footage and came across this our first trip IBC in 2010 which was the year of the Panasonic AF101 at a mere £4,000.

Strangely enough I am informed that the Panasonic EVA-1 in now selling, not in the quantities of the AF101 but with a lot more competition in the market than the AF101 had.

27th May 2011…The Panasonic AF101 has started a massive ball rolling from the day it landed in the UK and beyond, Panasonic were quietly optimistic about world wide sales but were dumb struck by the uptake of the camcorder and has outstripped everyone’s expectations. Having owned one for the last 5 months I have only now had time to reflect on what has been a momentous journey with my Panasonic AF101.

So what made me sell my AF101 eventually…The resolution topped off at about 800 lines while the Sony FS100 gave you 1000 lines of resolution.

Here is the video I produced back in 2010 recorded at 1280 x 720 50p upscaled to 1920.


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.
