Check out the new camera from Panasonic

Many of you have noticed the release of the new AG-AC8 Camcorder in the press and have called us for information. To let you all know what is going on the AC8 story is as follows,

• The AG-AC8 is a new entry level, single sensor on-shoulder AVCHD Camcorder due for release March/April.
• There will be two versions released. The AG-AC8 will be the “Pro” model and the HC-MDH2 will be the “Consumer” model.
• The AG-AC8 and HC-MDH2 are essentially the SAME camera. The only difference that we know of right now is that different regions/countries will have either 2 x SD slots or 1 SD slot plus built in memory.
