The AC160 & AC130 Book published by Fiercely Independent Films is the ultimate guide for Panasonic's AG-AC160 and AG-AC130 AVCCAM handheld camcorders. The book and CD combo teaches you the features, settings and modes, and tapeless workflow. They also explain working with AVCHD footage and include tutorials on some of the most common situations users find themselves facing. You will learn when and how to use each setting for the best results.

An extensive section of tutorials and essays teach a range of subjects from the simple to the advanced, including explanations on how to get the shallow depth-of-field look, how to control strobing and shoot 24P (or 25P) for the best results, working with all the variable frame rates, different lenses and lens mounts, and how to use the waveform monitor and vectorscope. The book is jam-packed with photos and screenshots throughout its 256 full-color, high-quality glossy pages. It covers the entire series of AC120 through AF160 camcorders. Also included is a CD-ROM which contains all the scene file explanation pictures and sample scene file photographs in uncompressed format, as well as 24 scene files that you can copy to an SD card and upload into your camera.

    Comments about Books Book & CD: The AC160 & AC130 Book:

    I am pleased to recommend this book to both prospective buyers and owners of Panasonic AG-AC160A/130As.

    Buying the wrong camera is not a pleasant experience. Not learning about the features/ functions once you get a camera puts you in the same position of not getting satisfaction.

    I took one year to select my AC160A. I have found the book to be invaluable. The book is not something you read once - I have probably read it 50 times - each time I learn something new.

    The camera, by the way, is fantastic - I cover stage events, outdoor music festivals, interviews and also make training films and documentaries.

    I rate the performance of the AG-AC160A as exceptional under all of these scenarios.
