AG-DVC30 1/4-Inch 3-CCD Camcorder, AG-YUSC100 Soft Carry Case, CGPD28A/1B 2800mA Battery,

Panasonic introduces another version of its ubiquitous 3-chip "prosumer" camcorder. The AG-DVC30 uses 3 1/4-inch CCDs to record standard NTSC 30-frames per second video. The camcorder integrates some film-look features of the 24-frame AG-DGX100A camera, along with a few unique features. It is the only 3-CCD camera that has an infrared, black and white capture, night video mode. The camera is equally at home in security applications, event videography, or as a superior-quality camcorder for documenting the daily lives of family and friends.

Main Features:

From lens to CCD to circuitry, the AG-DVC30 camcorder from Panasonic is built for superior image quality. Wide-angle, high magnification zoom lens, optical image stabilizer, 3CCD image sensor and high image quality circuits ensure great video every time you shoot. The light weight die cast magnesium body makes the DVC30 reliable and durable. The DVC30 has a detachable handle for great shots with or without a tripod and the 3.5 LCD flip out monitor makes it easy to follow the action. 16X optical zoom and 16X digital zoom brings the action upclose while maintaining superior quality. Take your game video to the next level with the DVC30 from Panasonic and CoachComm.

Detailed Specifications:

Infrared Capture in Low-/No-Light Environments
The AG-DVC30 is the only 3-CCD camcorder to integrate black and white recording using infrared, invisible to the eye, signals. The camera has a built-in infrared transmitter that cast beams 16 feet. Clear black and white video can be captured to that point. For greater distances, a separate, longer-throw infrared transmitter will cast beams just under 100 feet. This feature gives the camcorder greater versatility in surveillance, news gathering, and nature video. Additionally, time and date can be super-imposed onto the picture.

Scene File Video Parameter Memory
The camcorder will remember specific camera set-ups for specific lighting or special effect conditions. The parameters that will be memorized include detail, chroma-level, chroma-phase, color temperature, master pedestal and skin-tone detail.

Film-Look Features
Combining gamma settings and frame-modes, the AG-DVC30 can produce video that looks more like film. The gamma settings change the sensitivity of light mapped on the gray-scale. The camera also captures video with an electronic interpolation that simulates progressive scan with seemingly no time differences between fields

Variable Zoom Speed Settings
In addition to the touch-sensitive nature of the zoom servo rocker switch, the camera menu can select a general slower or faster zoom sensitivity.

Digital Zoom Pre-Sets
The AG-DVC30 has a low noise, low interference optical zoom built into the Leica Dicomar lens. Optically, the lens elements give a wide angle of 4.1mm, a 35mm format equivalent of 39.5mm, and a maximum telephoto setting of 65.6mm, a 16 times zoom (623mm in 35mm format terms). Additionally, the camera has digital zoom increments at 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x, 5x, and 10x. Using the low-magnification digital zoom feature keeps image degradation to a minimum.

Slow Shutter Function
Increasing sensitivity is just one byproduct of utilizing slow shutter. The camera also produces special effects that demonstrate motion. Additionally, the shutter functions as a scan matching system to stop raster roll on video and computer screens.

LCD Monitor with Audio Meters
The camera has a bright, full color LCD monitor built onto the side of the camera. With a menu selection, 2 audio channel meters, in different colors, can be viewed to monitor audio levels.

Date and Time Stamp Feature
Useful in legal and security environments, the AG-DVC30 can overlay time, day, and date over the video image.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
