I was keen from the start to have a af100, but I was reasonably satisfied with the hmc152, although a little soft in sharpness, but the af100 is a much better unit, similar menu layout and functions which has made for a easy transition. Read plenty of reviews and kept an eye on the price. Once ordered delivery was prompt. About the only thing missing is a P2 version(avc intra enabling 10Bit 4 2 2). Hence the price. As attatching an external recorder is about the same cost as the cam body! So a second af100 would seem logical for colour matching, the quality of the codec is that good. But its not a run & gun unit, unless purposely set up. The best things about this cam is its micro 4/3 MOS sensor, ISO range, interchangable lenses(perfect for the GH 2 DSLR that I just got), SDI HD & HDMI, 108024p and variable frame rate. ND dial is a nice touch but awkward position. If you have worked with film cameras then you'll appreciate the af100.
Great Video Camera & Great Supplier

Thanks to Globalmediapro, I bought this video Panasonic. So I can use my Nikon lenses with an adaptator with iris ring.
I must say that the color capture software is one of the best I have seen. The colors come out very rich and soft never flat nor aggressive. Bringing natural effect even for green in every configuration of lightening ( non natural mostly on other manufacturers) and leading to very short post-production work. The advantage for using the top Nikon lenses is evident and avoid the trouble of the "standard zooms" 20X (35mm-700mm equiv 35mm)non interchangeable lens, serial mount on . Such lenses cannot pretend doing everything wide angle and super tele in the same time.
Globalmediapro sent the item very quickly and I thank them for everything
