The HDC-1400R is equipped with a newly developed three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCD. Based on Sony HAD sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this new CCD offers a high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lx. In addition to this performance, a wide variety of capturing modes including 1080/50i. What´s more, this CCD can be operated in 1080/50i and 720/50P mode to cover all current mainstream HDTV formats.
14-bit A/D (Analogue to Digital) conversion
The HDC-1400R utilises a 14-bit A/D convertor, which enables images captured by the high-performance CCDs to be processed with maximum precision. In particular, this high-resolution A/D conversion allows the gradation in mid-to-dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced. Thanks to this 14-bit A/D convertor, pre-knee signal compression at highlight areas can be eliminated and the camera can clearly reproduce a high-luminance subject at a 600% dynamic range.
Improved S/N ratio
At the heart of the outstanding picture performance of the HDC-1400R camera is a newly developed 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel full HD progressive CCD. Based on Sony's HAD sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this CCD offers a high sensitivity of F10 or F11 at 2,000 lx and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 56 dB (typical).
Together with a unique "Noise Suppression" function, which reduces the high-frequency noise elements in video signals by using Sony's advanced digital signal processing technology, a 64dB S/N ratio can be achieved.
Newly added Focus Assist Functions
For easier focusing through the viewfinder, two types of focus assist functions are newly incorporated to the HDC-1400R: Viewfinder Detail and Focus Assist Indicator. To intuitively recognize a focusing point, users of the camera can add dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder as "Viewfinder Detail". The "Focus Assist Indicator" is a helpful tool for manual focus adjustments, especially when shooting wide-angle views. An indicator is displayed at the bottom or other positions of the viewfinder frame, enabling users to make more accurate and fine focus adjustments
Compact and Lightweight
The HDC-1400R portable camera is designed to be very compact and lightweight for a high level of mobility in the field. The HDC-1400R camera weighs approximately 4.5 kg ensuring comfortable operation either on the shoulder or on a tripod.
