Model Description:
2/3" 3-CCD 16:9 1080i/720p HD Multi-Purpose Camera - Head Only

Model Details

The AK-HC1500G is the industry's first compact multi-format HD camera and offers compatibility with all of the world's HD formats. This compact, 3.3-pound camera is also the first multi-purpose unit to offer variable frame rates (4fps to 60fps in single-frame increments) and a CineGammaTM curve to produce film-like images. It teams seamlessly with Panasonic's AJ-HDC27 VariCam® HD Cinema camera for high-end productions. Or team it with the AW-PH650 (pan/tilt in sealed housing) for outdoor application. Compact to go practically anywhere, the AK-HC1500G is tailor made for assignments ranging from studio use and weather forecasting to live sports and videoconferencing, from scientific image analysis to studio animation.•Captures 1080 at 24p/25p/30p/50i/59.94i and 60i and 720 at 50p/59.94p and 60p
•Newly developed IT 3-CCD offers improved on-chip lenses performance (standard sensitivity of F10.0 at 2000 lux and a smear level of less than -130dB
•Single-channel transfer system and spatial-offset processing technologies improve signal modulation depth, thus reducing moire
•14-bit A/D converter and new adaptive function varies the gamma correction to match the contrast within the image, creating clear, sharp images from dark to bright areas
•Hue preservation circuit prevents color loss in highlight areas
•Shoots in variable frame rates (4fps to 60fps in one-second increments) just like a film camera, thereby producing overcranking and undercranking speed effects
•A special CineGamma curve allows the CCD to produce the tonal beauty, natural gradation and rich colors like film recordings
•Exceptionally high sensitivity allows shooting in lighting as low as 0.015 lux (at +72dB gain)
•Environment-friendly, compact design with fewer parts and low power consumption
•Slot to add option card to expand capabilities for a wide range of applications
•Supports down converter and analog output unit
•Electronic Extender function (used with conventional lens extender) magnifies the image by 2 times
