he Panasonic AG-AF102AEN Digital Cinema Camcorder features a 4/3-inch MOS image sensor and Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens mount for capturing video with shallow depth-of-field and a wider field-of-view than more traditional, smaller format camcorders. The AF102AEN can record Full HD 1920x1080 resolution video at 60i, 50i, 30p, 25p and 24p, as well as 60p/50p using the AVCHD PS Mode. In addition to the aesthetic merits of a large sensor, interchangeable lens system, the AF102AEN offers many of the features that professional videographers expect from the camcorder form factor, such as built-in ND filters and XLR audio inputs.

Panasonic's PS, PH, HA and HE recording modes offer variable bit rates from approximately 6 to 25 Mbps, and an uncompressed 4:2:2 10-bit signal can be output via HD-SDI.
