The AG-AC160A and AG-AC130A Memory Card Camera Recorders offer a host of advanced functions. The lens, camera section and recorder section of these models have been significantly revamped by incorporating cutting-edge technologies.

The new 22x zoom lens boasts wide coverage, from wide-angle to telephoto, while individual zoom, focus, and iris rings let you make manual adjustments just like with an interchangeable lens. The high-sensitivity, low-noise, high-resolution 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) 3MOS image sensor and professional AVCHD PH mode ensure high-quality Full-HD (1920 x 1080) recording.

Both the high-end AG-AC160A and the cost-effective AG-AC130A meet a broad range of professional needs, in both video production and news gathering. Both models also feature a DV*2 (SD) recording mode for extra versatility.
