Zacuto Rentals Adds Panasonic AF100s to Inventory

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Zacuto Rentals added another member to its family this week with the arrival of the Panasonic AG-AF100. Fans of the Panasonic DVX 100A and HVX 200 will swoon with delight when they see Panasonic's answer to the HD-DSLR/hybrid video camera revolution.

"The camera looks great straight out of the box," says Zacuto Rentals Manager, Joe DeJulius. "It was easy to put together and works perfectly with all of our gear."

The AF100 is built with a micro 4/3 lens mount, but can be easily adapted to fit Nikon and PL-mounted lenses with the help of an adapter ring. The ring is part of Zacuto's AF100 camera packages. In other words, you won't be limited to shooting with a micro 4/3 lens. A Nikon or PL lens can be adapted for optimal use. The rentals department also recently acquired some new Zeiss CP2 lenses that are very popular. There are quite a few options to pick from. Zacuto Rentals is there to help you choose what best fits your project.

Zacuto Rental packages for the AF100 range from $400 to $900, depending on your budget and shooting requirements. There are three basic packages: the Body package, the Docu package and the Cine package. All packages come with the camera body, four Panasonic batteries, a dual battery charger and three 64 GB SDXC cards.

Zacuto's Docu package adds a small set of Zeiss still prime lenses (25mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm), a Zacuto Universal Baseplate, follow focus, matte box, a set of filters and a tripod. The Cine package adds a full set of Zeiss still prime lenses (18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 100mm), follow focus, matte box, a set of filters, a tripod and monitor, as well as the rail system required for shoulder mounted shooting.

Of course, if these packages don't match what you are looking for, you can always go á la carte and mix and match whatever accessories your project requires.
