Technical Details

Product Description

The HVR-S270U features interchangeable lens systems, native progressive recording, increased sensitivity for low-light conditions, hybrid solid-state recording and other features designed for video production professionals and pro-sumers. Sonys 1/3-inch 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor system enhanced by Exmor technology produces results in high-quality digital signals with extremely low noise. Both technologies combine to allow the HVR-S270U to perform significantly better in low-light environments with sensitivity of 1.5 lux. * The HVR-S270U is one of the first compact camcorders to offer the extra flexiblility of allowing users to attach different lenses. It comes with a universal standard 1/3-inch bayonet mount mechanism for easier lens changes. Also standard is a 12x high-quality, multi-purpose Carl Zeiss lens for HD video, with a Vario-Sonnar T* coating to reduce reflections. A specially designed 8x wide-angle lens is available as an option. The HVR-S270U offers 1080, 24p and 30p native progressive recording, using its 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor system and EIP technology to create true 1080p images and recording them as progressive signals in the HDV format. The progressive HDV streams can be output from an i.LINK interface and used for progressive editing with compatible non-linear editing software. Users have the option of hybrid recording to flash memory cards via a supplied memory-recording unit that attaches directly to the side of the HVR-S270U and eliminates the need for cables. This unit captures the HDV1080i, DVCAM, or DV stream output from the camcorder and can record HDV/DVCAM/DV files to a standard CompactFlash solid-state memory card, while users are simultaneously recording to tape.
