The Panasonic AG-HMC40 is a camcorder designed to record in high definition on standard SecureDigital (SD) and SDHC memory cards. ...The camera is extremely portable and lightweight, weighing in at just over 2 lbs. While SD-based camcorders have been gaining ground in the consumer market, the AG-HMC40 has the ability to record AVCHD images at significantly higher bitrates. This enhancement makes the camera more efficient than comparable HD interframe codecs, such as HDV and XDCAM EX. Using H.264 as its compression algorithm the camera can record incredibly detailed images at a fraction of the file size. The handle is detachable and can hold an optional XLR audio system. Note! XLR option not included. 3MOS Sensor Technology The progressive 3MOS image sensors record full-HD images with an effective motion-picture resolution of 2.51-megapixels. This produces full-raster HD images with high resolution and superb image quality. Because each of the three separate image sensors receives one of the three primary colors of light (red, green and blue), they render more precise images and more faithful colors than the single light-receiving 1MOS sensor. Sharp Rendering With a lens that features 13 elements in 10 groups, the newly developed Leica Dicomar is ideal for full-HD recording. The new lens system uses low-dispersion glass and aspherical lenses to reduce color aberration and boost resolution. Use of a special multi-coating process dramatically reduces flare and ghosts. The result is a sharp, crisp, beautifully rendered picture with vivid colors, delicate nuances, and exceptional shading. 120x Digital Zoom Even at the 490mm zoom setting (35mm lens equivalent), this advanced 12x optical zoom lens is free of image degradation. Additionally, the AG-HMC40 is also equipped with a digital zoom that instantly magnifies the image by any of three fixed values. 2x, 5x or 10x. Use it together with the 12x optical zoom lens and you get super magnification equivalent to a 120x zoom, without the drop in light intensity that happens when using a lens extender. Optical Image Stabilization Because the hand-shake correction is done by actually driving the lens, there's none of the image degradation that occurs with electronic stabilization. You can capture beautiful, high-quality shots even in situations where hand-shake is typically a big problem such as when zooming, shooting indoors in dim lighting, or shooting outdoors at night. Dynamic Range Stretch A gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match the contrast of each pixel, and applied in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images that result are enhanced by a visually wider dynamic range. High-quality 10.6 MegaPixel Digital Stills The new 3MOS sensors also combine with Panasonic's proprietary Quad-Density Pixel Distribution technology to achieve a resolution that is equivalent to 4 times the normal level. The AG-HMC40 captures still images with approx. 10.6-megapixel resolution (in still image mode, 3:2 aspect ratio), which approaches the level of a high-performance digital still camera. For example, you can use it to shoot both motion and still images for a website. Cine-Like Gamme Curves Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam HD camcorders for digital cinema, Panasonic has equipped the AG-HMC40 with advanced gamma functions that address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your creative abilities. This includes the cine-like gamma, which produces the characteristic warm t read more

Video Equipment - Want to promote your music through social media? Grab a Sony HDR-MV1 music video camera and you're good to go. T...his amazing, lightweight, and extremely portable HD video camera lets you capture stunning video and audio that more than rivals any camera in its class. The wide-angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens performs wonderfully in low light and tight spaces, while the X-Y stereo microphone pair captures broad, clear, and detailed audio. Top it off with onboard Wi-Fi, handy recording modes, and other useful features, and you really can't beat the Sony HDR-MV1.Sony HDR-MV1 HD Music Video Camera at a Glance: Awesome Zeiss optics capture clear wide-angle video. Quality condenser microphones record stunning stereo audio. Loaded with options to make shooting fun and convenient. Awesome Zeiss optics capture clear wide-angle videoMany of us at Sweetwater have spent years making videos of our bands and posting them to social media sites. There are a few things we've come to look for in a music camera, and we're happy to say that the Sony HDR-MV1 nails them all. For starters, the camera itself has to cover a wide field and handle low light like a champ. That's why Sony chose to pair a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with their Exmor R CMOS sensor. The lens itself offers you a 120-degree wide-angle view, which lets you to capture your entire band even in tight practice spaces. The fixed F2.8 aperture and advanced onboard metering provide admirable quality in environments as dim as 4.5 lux. And since it records in 1080p at 30 fames/second, you'll be ready to post great-looking HD videos right after shooting with your Sony HDR-MV1.Quality condenser microphones record stunning stereo audioPossibly even more important than its video capabilities is the audio quality of the Sony HDR-MV1. Taking full advantage of Sony's history of developing high-end field-recording equipment, the HDR-MV1 offers high-detail, low-noise sound courtesy of an X-Y stereo pair of condenser microphones.

A bit of built-in advanced audio processing called Audio Lip Sync even ensures that your video and audio are totally synced up, adding an important touch of professional polish to you videos. And with your choice of better-than-CD quality PCM linear or internet-ready AAC recording options, your final video will be ready for further processing or immediate delivery to your fans.Loaded with options to make shooting fun and convenientIn addition to Audio Lip Sync, Sony loaded the HDR-MV1 music video camera with a number of extremely useful functions.

Some of the advanced functions you'll find onboard the HDR-MV1 include a facial detection, which keeps the action focused on the performers, plus a scene modes for shooting at night, onstage, outdoors, and in other environments. The included battery gives you over three hours of shooting time, but you can connect your HDR-MV1 to a USB power source for longer shoots. And with the ability to record on to 32GB SDXC memory cards (and other media), running out of space is no real concern.Sony HDR-MV1 HD Music Video Camera Features: HD video camera specifically designed for music video production in up to 1080p/30 fps resolution.
