The AG-AC30, a handheld camcorder with superb low-light functionality and many professional-level features and tools, is the ideal camera for any prosumer. With a list of features that includes a powerful 20X optical zoom, wide-angle 29.1mm lens, LED light for low-light shooting, two-channel XLR audio inputs, simultaneous record or relay record with hot swap, and full HD (1080p) recording, the entry-level AC30 is ideal for shooting weddings & other events, web videos, business conferences, exhibits and more.
The effective area of the AC30’s 1/3.1-inch Back Side Illumination (BSI) sensor has been increased to achieve the high-image quality of 6.03M effective pixels, producing bright, beautiful shots even in dark places. The sensor’s processing speed is advanced to approximately 1.5 times conventional speed, and a new Noise Reduction function reduces noise for crisp, vibrant FHD images. The built-in LED Light – featuring color conversion and diffusion filters and an average illumination of 300 lux at three feet -- is ideal for shooting events like nighttime weddings.
With dual SD card slots and the capability to record on both cards simultaneously, the AC30’s Relay Auto Switch functionality provides dependable back-up recording or the ability to switch from one card to the other for extended recording times. The AC30 records in AVCHD to 28Mbps and MP4/MOV to 50Mbps.
The AC30 weighs just over three pounds. A lightweight, durable magnesium-alloy frame is used for the camcorder handle, increasing strength, and a large lens hood blocks light more effectively to reduce lens flare while permitting subjects to be seen from behind the hood.
