No color correction, FCP 7, ProResHQ to Youtube. Can't seem to embed it...









Quick test during lunch of the Panasonic AC-160. Very nice camera. Bigger than most 'handycams' but not at all unwieldy, and lighter than one would expect. LCD is very nice - easy to pull focus, but I wish the focus assist was stronger... could be a setting I need to find.

The reach on the lens is really impressive as is how wide it is. My guess is that this will be the standard in 3 chip cameras for a few years. If Vitaliy / Driftwood could hack this like the GH2 it would kill the P2 version, the new Canons and pretty much anything in this size / shape / cost.

Thanks,
Harry

We recently received our AG-AC160P. I have a quick question. With the camera turned off, if I tilt it up and down I hear something moving/sliding back and forth inside the lens. When it's turned on it's fine. Is this normal for this camera? I've never had a prosumer or professional camera do this.

My little Canon HFS10 does that. Scared me silly until I read that it is the optical image stabilisation mechanism and it's perfectly normal.
