In the AG-AF100 series, Panasonic has brought shallow depth of field control to a professional AVCCAM camera recorder.

As the successor of HVR-Z7 and HXR-NX5, the PXW-X160 has a lot of attractive features, including dual SxS memory card slots, a G Series fixed 25x HD zoom lens with 26mm wide angle and variable ND filter, that provides four conventional mechanical 4 ND filter positions or a linear switch dial for more control in changing light conditions.
