The Panasonic AG-AC90 is a camera built for video production. It is usable both handheld and on a tripod, although it’s always recommended to be used on a tripod. This model is slightly older than the Panasonic AC-30, and unlike the AC-30 does not have any lighting capabilities, so its use in low light is not quite as good. It has two audio channels and two XLR inputs, which enables you to use external microphones with it along with its in built microphone. Overall it is the perfect camera to use for broadcast journalism stories.
