IBC 2012: Panasonic has released details of a new camcorder ahead of the IBC trade show in two weeks’ time.

Panasonic’s AG-AC90 joins its AVCCAM range of “affordable HD” devices.

It is equipped with three 1/4.7-type CMOS sensors and is the first camera to feature Panasonic’s AVCCAM HD PS recording mode at 28Mbps 60p.

It shoots 1920 x 1080 at 60p, 60i, 30p and 24p, and records to dual SD card slots, which support SDXC, SDHC and SD memory cards.

Audio options include two-channel XLR inputs with individual level controls and input selection.

The camera has an HDMI output, a USB connector and a 3.5-inch touch-panel LCD monitor.

It will be priced at just over £1,400 and will be available from October.
