Exciting news everyone: Prokit are now an accredited dealer for the Panasonic camcorder range. Our favourite Panasonic products are already up on the site: you can see our selected AVCHD camcorders here and our P2 range here.

Panasonic make some great camcorders. They were one of the first companies to embrace ideas like file-based recording and variable framerates in low cost handheld units, paving the way for speedy workflows and increased shooting flexibility.

Our range can be split easily down into two format types: AVCHD and P2. Here are the key features:

Panasonic AVCHD

  • Low cost camcorders using the MPEG4/AVCHD recording codec
  • Bitrate of 24mbps onto economical SD-HC cards
  • Ideal entry level camcorders

Panasonic P2

  • Uses high quality P2 cards for recording: fast, reliable and trusted by broadcasters
  • Capable of high data rates up to 100 megabits per second, making them ideal for broadcast
  • DVPRO HD recording format: high quality and easily edited. In some camcorders the new and efficient AVC-Intra codec is also available
  • Slow motion capabilities

We also have now on the site the Panasonic AF101 interchangeable lens camcorder. It uses a micro four thirds sized sensor and can take the Panasonic range of micro four thirds lenses: options with optics means increased creativity, and the larger than usual sensor means that a more cinematic depth of field is possible.

We’ll be keeping the upcoming HPX-250 camcorder in stock as soon as it is available, which is a P2 camcorder capable of DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra recording.

The addition of Panasonic camcorders to our existing Sony and Canon lineup means greater choice for you: more cameras to choose from and more formats means we really can help you find a camcorder that suits your needs.
