A comprehensive, detailed and the ultimate reference guide for Panasonic's AG-AC160 and AG-AC130 AVCCAM handheld camcorders.
The AC160 & AC130 Book (with an included CD-ROM) presents a comprehensive examination of the cameras and all their features, settings, and modes, the tapeless workflow, working with AVCHD footage, and tutorials on some of the most common situations users find themselves facing.
The book de-mystifies what all the features of the camera actually do, as well as explaining when and why you'd want to use each setting for the best results. An extensive section of tutorials and essays teach a range of subjects from the simple to the advanced, including explanations on how to get the shallow depth-of-field look, how to control strobing and shoot 24P (or 25P) for the best results, working with all the variable frame rates, different lenses and lens mounts, and how to use the waveform monitor and vectorscope.
The book is jam-packed with photos and screenshots throughout its 245+ full-color, high-quality glossy pages. Covers the entire series of AC120 through AF160 camcorders.
Also included is a CD-ROM which contains all the scene file explanation pictures and sample scene file photographs in uncompressed format, as well as 24 SCENE FILES that you can copy to an SD card and upload into your camera.
