Put Three Chips on Your Shoulder
With three 1/3" Exmor™ CMOS Sensors, you'll notice improved color reproduction of video recordings and capture sharp, detailed images. Noise reduction is accomplished via the unique column-parallel analog-to-digital conversion technique and grid arrangement of the photo diodes converter for maximum light sensitivity.
Superior Low-light Performance
Featuring, superior low-light ability with high sensitivity, this camcorder enables clear shooting of subjects in light as low as 1.5 lux (at 1/30 fixed shutter speed with auto iris and auto gain). This allows you to capture sharp detail and brilliant colors even in less than perfect lighting, especially when professional lighting cannot be used.

Additionally, the grounded connection allows insertion/removal of connectors in live equipment without picking up external signals.
More Natural Color Tones
For extra control over image expression, CinemaTone Gamma™ technology is used to deepen the color and CinemaTone Color to recreate film-like color tones. CinemaTone Gamma also allows operators to quickly set up and load a gamma curve with similar contrast characteristics to a film gamma curve.
