Product Details:

The Panasonic AJ-SDC615 is a widescreen 2/3-Inch 3-CCD professional camcorder that finally puts broadcast quality and 16:9 recording at a reasonable price. The camera comes complete with a Firewire connection for digital transfers to a non-linear system. It also has convenience features normally found only in the highest priced broadcast cameras. Three user programmable buttons gives immediate access to commonly used functions without scrolling through menu pages. There are 4 user scene files for direct recall of previously set picture-look settings. An ergonomically designed and lightweight rig makes this camera usable for many industrial and EFP shooters.

Key Features

  • Trickle-Down High Technology

    With the advancement of CCD technology the AJ-SDC615 offers performance that used to cost as much as a down payment on a house. Even the fact that this camera uses 2/3-inch chips is a huge leap forward. A 12-bit processing circuit in the DSP offers great custom picture possibilities.

  • 12-Bit Digital Processing Circuit

    The DSP circuit features 12-bit A/D conversion and 12-axis matrix color correction. This achieves better overall picture quality with finer gradation and improved color expression. It also allows correction in specific color regions without changing the overall color tone.

  • User Scene Files

    The camera has internal memory specifically for special picture and menu settings that can be recalled at any time. It could be used when a camera is used by multiple operators. It also comes in handy when production takes the shoot back and forth among several lighting situations or with scenes and talent with specific video-look requirements.

  • Digital Recording Quality

    The AJ-SDC615 records a full 66 minutes of pictures and sound on a single medium-size tape (AJ-P66MP). Quality is superb thanks to the 5.75-MHz video bandwidth (Y) and 2-channel PCM sound. The AJ-SDC615 also adds advanced error correction features to assure excellent reliability.

  • Digital Zoom

    This support function lets you digitally zoom the image to two times its normal size. News shooters can use this feature to more easily interpret the scene and capture the important details.

  • Interval Recording Time Lapse Creativity

    The interval recording function (minimum interval 2 seconds) is ideal for time lapse recording, such as in environmental, scientific or industrial applications calling for observation or surveillance. You can also watch a an entire lifespan of a flower in minutes or seconds.
