Sony HVR-Z5P PAL Professional HDV Camcorder

The Sony HVR-Z5P Professional HDV PAL Camcorder is the highly-anticipated successor to

the acclaimed HVR-Z1P. The camera improves upon its predecessor in a variety of areas,

including overall performance and range of features. CinemaTone technology enhances both

gamma and color, providing exceptional images that exhibit a beautiful film-like aesthetic. What

makes the camera unique is its ability to shoot to both tape and compact flash simultaneously

when using the HVR-MRC1K compact flash memory recording unit.

At the heart of the camcorder are three 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Exmor sensors, which capture

detailed imagery even in extreme low light. Combined with a professional wide-angle lens and a

super-high resolution LCD screen, the camera is ideal for all handheld professional applications,

including weddings, news, independent film production and reality television.

High Definition on MiniDV Tapes with HDV

 

The HDV format, used in the HVR-Z5P allows high definition recording on standard

MiniDV tapes. Experience "Window-to-the-world" clarity using the very popular MPEG-

2 compression technique responsible for many forms of media used today, including

DVDs and high-definition satellite television. The camera can also switch back to normal

MiniDV mode when necessary.

 

Watch Your CinemaTone

 

The HVR-Z5P features CinemaToneTM technology, which comes in two flavors.

CinemaTone GammaTM crushes blacks while keeping the mids and highlights detailed,

while CinemaTone ColorTM deepens color reproduction for richer hues. Combine the two

and footage becomes incredibly film-like. CinemaTone Gamma curves can be accessed

by the touch of a button.

 

Gorgeous G-Series Lens

 

The HVR-Z5P makes full use of a low dispersion glass 29.5-590mm G-Lens with a 20x

optical zoom and 3 built-in ND filters. The lens comes equipped with a manual focus, iris

and zoom, making it the first camera in its class to feature a fully professional lens!

Bravo. The lens has a digital extender that increases magnification by 1.5x, making the

lens achieve up to 30x digital zoom levels.

 

ClearVID 3CMOS Technology

Sony's ClearVID sensors are positioned at a 45° angle. Since each pixel is positioned in

this manner, the result is far clearer diagonal lines. Images will appear crisper, without

the apparent "jaggies" that often plague video signals. Enhanced Image Processing (EIP)

is responsible for processing large amounts of pixel color information, recording 4:2:2

chroma before being thrown to 4:2:0 HDV tape.

 

Exmor Inside

 

Low-light situations can sometimes be difficult for cameras of this size due to their

relatively small sensors. The result can often be additional noise or image degradation,

sometimes sending otherwise usable footage to the proverbial "digital cutting room

floor". By incorporating Exmor technology, Sony has once again raised the bar for

handheld cameras at this price-point, reducing the lux rating from 3 to 1.5! The HVR-

Z5P's ultra-sensitive 1/3" CMOS Exmor sensors take advantage of technology originally

developed for their flagship XDCAM EX camera, the PMW-EX1, delivering an amazing

signal-to-noise ratio.

 

25p Capability

 

In 25p mode, images from the CMOS can recorded onto tape in the standard 50i HDV

format. The tape can then be played back or edited using an ordinary HDV system. True

25p editing can be achieved by pulldown-converted images via an i.LINK FireWire

interface to a compatible non-linear editing system. The resultant images closely

resemble the visual motion of film! The camera can also shoot in both standard 50i for

richer temporal motion.

 

High Resolution LCD

 

When shooting HD footage, standard LCD screens can be very deceiving; what looked

perfect amidst a full-day video shoot can sometimes prove very soft or out of focus while

in post-production. This is a direct result of a simple fact: most camera-mounted LCDs

cannot resolve images in the same way they are being recorded. The HVR-Z5P comes

equipped with a 1-MegaPixel LCD screen, making it 4x as clear as the LCD on the HVR-

Z1P, eliminating this oft-pesky phenomenon. Record with confidence knowing that what

you see is what you will get.

 

Extended Dynamic Range

 

The camera's 30% extension in dynamic range translates into more detail in both

highlights and shadows. Increased dynamic range can be very useful when color

correcting during post production.

 

Focus Assist

 

Users will be delighted by the HVR-Z5P's focus assist feature; peaking focus assist

provides a simple way to ensure images are in perfect tack-sharp clarity. The process

highlights high-contrast areas that represent sharp lines making focus operation

incredibly quick and easy.

 

Advanced Audio Recording

 

The built-in microphone features full stereo recording capability capturing crystal clear

audio. If more directional audio recording is necessary, the unit comes equipped with a

ECM-XM1 monoaural microphone, providing a high level of flexibility while allowing

operators to tackle a wide range of projects.
