Sony announces HVR-Z5E professional HDV camcorder
Sony unveiled the new HVR-Z5E compact professional HDV camcorder with fixed G Lens system, native progressive recording capabilities and increased sensitivity for low-light conditions at IBC2008.
The new camcorder uses Sony’s new 1/3in ClearVid CMOS sensor system enhanced by Exmor technology. Exmor technology features a column-parallel analog-to-digital conversion technique and dual noise canceling, resulting in high-quality digital signals with low noise.
The camcorder’s G Lens incorporates Sony's optical design and quality control and has been optimized to complement the camcorder’s advanced image sensor and image-processing technology. This lens offers a wide 29.5mm angle lens and new 20X optical zoom as well as three ND filters (1/4, 1/16, 1/64) and independent focus, zoom and iris rings.
