Panasonic’s AG-HMC40 AVCHD is its latest addition to its well-received AVCCAM product line. It combines high-resolution still photo capture (at 10.6mp) with full HD AVCHD video recording capabilities. At 2.16 pounds, it is a lightweight and compact camcorder that can be utilized across a wide variety of markets and applications, which includes event videography, government agency recordings, web designers, schools, and many more.
Because of the HMC40’s higher bitrate recording, it offers more resolution and color compared to other models in the AVCHD line. This improvement makes it a boon for professional shooters and casual video producers alike. It also follows the tradition of its predecessor, the AG-HMC150, in terms of the recording modes it boasts – at a full-raster 1280 x 720 and 1920 x 1080. In terms of construction, many reviewers find it to be a solid and reliable piece of equipment, mostly because the camera’s body is made of metal panels.
Many users tested how Panasonic Professional AG-HMC40 AVCHD Camcorder works in various recording situations, among which include: during sunset, outdoors, indoors, and even inside rooms that were dimly lit. So far, users have found the HMC40 to perform superbly in almost any situation. Resolution-wise, the results averaged at 800 lines. This is already very good for a camcorder that uses compact ¼-inch CMOS imagers. Moreover, its imagers can naturally create nice color and “latitude”, making the HMC40’s color output on par with its bigger brothers, the HPX170 and the HMC150.
Review Conclusion : Despite being a small package, the Panasonic Professional AG-HMC40 AVCHD Camcorder packs quite the punch in terms of professional features. Its overall usability makes it a worthy buy
