Sony introduces DSR-PD170 camcorder, upgrades performance from PD150 predecessor

Sony's DSR-PD170 camcorder features additional Record/Start/Stop and Zoom controls on top handle to aid in one-handed operation.

Sony has introduced the DSR-PD170 compact camcorder to its DVCAM line of professional video equipment.

Distinctive features include:

  • Minimum illumination improvement for low-light recording; increased from 2 lux to 1 lux;

  • A new 2.5-inch Hybrid LCD SwivelScreen monitor for improved viewing in bright sunlight;

  • Simultaneous turn-on of LCD panel and viewfinder;

  • Increased adjustment steps on Iris control, with number of steps doubled from 12 to 24;

  • A lens hood featuring built-in lens cover. A wide conversion lens (provided) can be attached or removed without removing the hood;

  • A larger handle, viewfinder and eyecup;

  • Additional Record/Start/Stop and Zoom controls on top handle to aid in one-handed operation; and

  • Audio quality (S/N ratio) in the manual recording mode improved by 6 dB.

The new professional camcorder enables digital component audio and video acquisition in the DVCAM and DV formats. The camcorder's three Advanced HAD, one-third-inch CCDs enable both interlaced and progressive scanning modes and provide high-quality acquisition with increased resolution and sensitivity. Noise levels and vertical smear are also significantly reduced.
