HVR-Z7E DISCONTINUED

1/3-inch typr 3 ClearVid CMOS sensor with Exmor technology HDV camcorder with interchangeable lens system recording HD / SD

New flexibility, new features, new opportunities

The HVR-Z7E is the world's first HDV handheld camcorder with an interchangeable lens system, native progressive recording, and solid-state memory recording.

A variety of video lenses can be attached to the HVR-Z7E, which is equipped with a universal standard 1/3-inch bayonet mount mechanism for the quick changing of lenses.

Added to this a streamlined nonlinear editing workflow can be achieved using the supplied memory-recording unit, which provides HDV/DVCAM/DV file recording on a standard CompactFlash® solid-state memory card. This offers customers varying levels of flexibility and hybrid operation which is becoming an important requirement in video production.

The HVR-Z7E also features 25p HDV native progressive recording mode and HDMI output.

This new handheld Camcorder further enhances the operational versatility of the Sony professional HDV lineup, and opens up a world of possibilities for high-definition digital video production. Whether it's for documentaries, general TV production, low-budget movies, music videos, IPTV, education, or a wide range of corporate and event videography applications, Sony's new HVR-Z7E is ideal.

    • Offers great low-light capabilities especially important for camera operators who cannot control their ambient lighting., e.g. wedding videographers.
    • Lower power consumption than traditional CCD's.
    • 'Exmor' technology employed in the the new CMOS processor reduces noise in the A/D process.

    • Further improves the progressive reproduction by both scanning and recording progressively.
    • Provides further flexibility of use. e.g. The camera can be used for a variety of applications from budget-movie making in 25p mode to standard interlace TV productions.
    • Offers camera operators the use of the progressive 'filmic look', coupled with gamma curve correction makes the camera ideal for movie production.
