Panasonic AG-AC90

Panasonic has announced the new AG-AC90 AVCCAM HD camcorder, which features 3-MOS image sensors capturing HD video at 1080/60p, 60i, 30p and 24p.

The pro camcorder features a stabilized 12x optical zoom lens (29.8-357.6mm equivalent) and three independent adjustable rings for zoom, focus and iris.  The AC90 records to two SD card slots with support for SDXC and UHS-1.  Data rates measure 28Mbps for 60p only and 21Mbps average for other 1080 frame rates.  Lower data rates are available for extended recording times.

The AC90 also includes dual XLR inputs and a built-in stereo mic.  The camera has both an eye-piece viewfinder and a 3.5-inch LCD monitor at 1.15MP resolution.

The Pansonic AG-AC90 will be available in late fall 2012 at a targeted $2250 retail price.  Check for availability at B&H Photo.

How reliable is when recording on memory card. Can it not crush at anytime.

They are very reliable up until they are not (which can be a very long time).
However as stated in the press release, the camera will allow you to record to 2 cards simultaneously for backup!

That is the way I will be shooting.

Anyone know how this will compare to the old but powerful HMC-150 or the HVX-200?
