CrossFit “delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.” There are thousands of CrossFit boxes around the world with everyday athletes numbering in the millions.

Panasonic officially took the wraps off the AG-AF100A cinema camcorder today as an update to the (now discontinued) AF100. Key improvements (albeit, slight) include 10-bit 4:2:2 output, expanded focus assist and 2.39:1 cinema scope markers. Additionally, the AF100A now offers AVCHD 2.0 and a full-fledged 1080/60p mode.

The AF100A retails for $4,595; however, I noticed that B&H already has it in stock for $3,999. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
