Design And Ergonomics
Weighing 2.7g with the battery and lens hood, and with dimensions of 169 x 188 x 401 mm, the PD-175P features a 3.2" wide Xtra Fine LCD display, providing a high resolution of approximately 921,000 pixels, which allows for easier focus adjustments. It can also display virtually 100% of the recorded picture area at a colour temperature of approximately 6500K.
Sony has responded to customer feedback to create the ideal handheld camcorder chassis with an ergonomically designed body-weight balance and a carefully planned button layout that reduces operator fatigue. Improved protection for audio settings and independent rings for zoom, focus and iris demonstrate this attention to detail.
Lens and Audio Visual Quality
Sony's 'G' Lens features unique optical technology, precisely optimised to complement the camcorder's advanced image-processing technology to deliver exceptional performance and expand your shooting possibilities.
The camcorder's 29.5mm wide-angle, 20x optical zoom 'G' Lens offers a field of view that's ideal for many shooting situations, ranging from broad landscape shots to close-up shots where it is difficult to obtain sufficient distance from the subject.
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements reduce the chromatic aberrations caused by differences in light refraction to minimise colour fringing. The advanced 10-group, 15-element lens structure also includes three compound aspheric lenses for images that are crisp and clear, even when shooting at a high zooming ratio.
Advanced optical lens technology enables Sony's Exmor Sensor system realise sharper images with higher resolution and less noise, even when shooting in very low light.
The six-blade iris diaphragm is almost circular, which allows operators to incorporate creative background blur into their shots for beautiful visual effects.
The ergonomic layout of the zoom, focus and iris control rings makes operation of these three functions possible with just one hand.
The zoom function can be controlled by the lens barrel ring, the lever at the lens grip or the lever on the camera handle
A high-speed zoom mode is also available. The digital extender system increases the zoom ratio to approximately 30x.
The exposure function is ideal for varied shooting environments that range from very dark to very bright, allowing easy one-handed control using single-ring operation.
Three built-in ND (Neutral Density) filters - 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 - help to vary the depth of field with iris control.
Capturing standard definition footage of 1 megapixel resolution and photos of 1.2 megapixel resolution, the PD-175P features a 2 channel stereo audio format
