Industry consultant and author Tore Nordahl has released an online assessment of camcorder developments he observed at IBC2006 in Amsterdam.
He covers camcorder developments including:
- Canon’s XH and XH G1 1/3in 3-CCD HDV camcorders
- Sony’s HVR-V1 1/4in 3-CMOS HDV camcorder
- JVC’s GY-HD251E 1/3in HDV camcorder
- Panasonic’s AJ-HPX2100 2/3in 3-CCD P2 HD camcorder
Nordahl’s Web report also examines the use of 1/4in CMOS sensors by Sony in its new HVR-V1. The author reports Sony’s claim that the ClearVid CMOS Sensor provides lower noise and greater sensitivity. He examines the claim that the elevated performance of the 1/4in CMOS approaches that of a 1/3in CCD.
Nordahl also has announced the Oct. 10 release of his new 155-page “HD ENG/EFP & HDV Camcorders for Broadcasting & Production Report,” which will include an extensive analysis of HD lenses.
