AG-DVC15 camera/recorder places digital picture quality and easy
convenience into an extremely mobile package. Designed for professional
usage, this featherweight unit uses a large-diameter lens and 3-CCD
image sensor to deliver the high recording quality that advanced
applications demand. Its lightweight and shoulder-type design ensure
excellent mobility and stable shooting, while a number of manual
functions offers full creative control. An IEEE1394 (Firewire) terminal
lets you upload images to a PC and digitally dub onto a DV recorder. If
needed, you can also add high performance options like a wide-angle
conversion lens and large-capacity, long-lasting battery, for even more
versatile field use.
The 3-inch LCD monitor rotates a full 270 degrees for convenient low-angle, high-angle, and self recording, as well as easy menu setting.
XLR-type audio input terminals (line/mic switchable) are located on the rear panel, allowing CH1 and CH2 audio to be switched separately to either line or front mic input. Separate audio level meters and dials let you set the recording level independently for each channel, a handy function for interviews and narration.
The AG-DVC15's 3-CCD camera section matches the high performance of the VTR section. A large light-collecting area for each of the 270,000 pixels gives the camera a high S/N ratio, outstanding sensitivity, and wide dynamic range. Double-density pixel distribution and a gapless dichroic prism help assure razor-sharp images with extremely faithful colors. Even subtle differences between lighter and darker reds are clearly distinguished.
The AG-DVC15 uses the DV format, with an 8-bit digital compression recording system that delivers professional-quality pictures. Its advanced error correction function virtually eliminates dropouts and improves recording reliability. Using conveniently small mini-DV cassettes, it offers a recording time of up to 123 minutes (on the AY-DVM83XB mini-DV Master videotape, LP mode).
The DV format's 16-bit digital audio system rivals CDs in quality. Choose PCM sound in either a 48-kHz/16-bit, 2-channel, or a 32- kHz/12-bit, 4-channel mode during recording. The AG-DVC15 is also equipped with built-in stereo microphones and accepts external microphones.
