Geared for the Mobile Shooter -- A New Dimension in Low-Light Shooting and Professional Functions
Versatile Professional Functions
3.0-inch (type) Slide-Retractable LCD with Touch Operation
This handy LCD serves as a high-definition, 460K-dot monitor and menu-setting touch panel. When not in use, it slides into the front handle for extra mobility and safety. It also rotates 270 degrees vertically for easy high-angle, low-angle and self-interview shooting.
A lightweight, durable magnesium-alloy frame is used for the handle. The extra strength also expands shooting possibilities.
Tiltable Viewfinder with Eyecup
The 1,555K-dot-equivalent color viewfinder can be tilted for added convenience.
Professional features include a focus ring, zoom ring, and iris ring on the lens barrel. This enables speedy and intuitive camera work.
Illuminating LED Ring
The illuminating LED ring allows easy verification that recording is in progress, for smoother shooting. The user can turn the illumination on or off.
2-Channel XLR Audio Input Terminals
The AG-AC30 comes with 2-channel XLR audio input terminals for external mic or line recording. It also has a +48V phantom power supply. This enables the use of professional-spec, high-performance microphones for high-quality audio recording.
Dual SD Card Slot
When the first card becomes full, the system automatically and seamlessly switches to the second card. The user can exchange the card while shooting. This means that recorded cards can be exchanged one after another with blank cards for endless recording.*
* The file is divided every 10 hours.
The same data is recorded onto both cards, so you don't have to worry about losing the data.
Built-in LED Video Light: The video light is extremely bright (300 lx at 1 meter), for reliable shooting in dimly lit places. A diffusion filter softens the light source, and a color conversion filter converts the color temperature.
1/3.1-inch (type) BSI Sensor: The effective area is increased* to achieve the high image quality of 6.03M effective pixels. This gives you bright, beautiful shots even in dark places.
* Compared to the AG-AC8.
Optical 20x Zoom: By driving each of four lens groups separately, the drive ranges are reduced, resulting in high image quality and high-powered zooming, with a compact camera body.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +: The HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. This lets you capture crisp, clear images, without blurring, in almost every shooting situation.
Intelligent AF: This advanced AF system achieves superior focus speed, excellent stability, and high tracking performance.
29.5mm Wide-Angle*: The wide-angle feature fits more people and more of the background into the frame.
* 35mm camera equivalent
