Sony HDC-1700//U (HDC-1700, HDC 1700, HDC1700U, HDC 1700 U, HDC/1700//U, hdc-1700//u) Multi Format HD Camera System

Comes with 2 Years Sony Prime Support Warranty - Beware of grey imports.

The HDC-1700 dual-format HD system camera is equipped with sophisticated three-chip 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCD image sensors and the latest 16-bit A/D converter to provide superior picture quality. The HDC-1700 supports HD and SD signal formats including 1080/50p, 1080/60p, 720/50p, and 720/59.94p. 1080PsF frame rates (24p, 25p, 30p) are available as an optional software update(HZC-PSF20).

Superb image quality with cutting-edge technologies

  • With three high resolution 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCD image sensors, and the advanced digital signal processor (DSP) LSI provides superior S/N levels as well as better functionality. Also, a 16-bit A/D converter produces optimal visual imagery and enhanced black reproduction.

Full compatibility with HDC-2500 and HDC-1500 cameras systems

  • For increased flexibility, there is full compatibility with HDC-2500 and HDC-1500 cameras and accessories, and HDCU-1000/1500 and HDCU-2000/2500 CCUs, allowing the HDC-1700 to be integrated into a wide variety of workflows.

Adaptive Matrix function

  • With the Adaptive Matrix function, images with well-balanced details can be reproduced even in strong monochromatic light conditions, such as at stage events.

Auto Lens Chromatic Aberration Compensation (ALAC-2)

  • Alongside the advanced DSP LSI, the ALAC-2 function automatically compensates for lens chromatic aberration*. ALAC-2 works in both horizontal and vertical directions.
  • Lenses need to be corresponded to ALAC feature.

Optional accessories expand usage

  • There are many optional accessories for the HDC-1700, including the HKC-DF20 Dual Optical Filter Unit and HZC-PRV20 Signal Format Software (1080/50p, 60p). These options support a range of different shooting scenes and requirements.

Spirit level

  • With the MEMS-Acceleration Sensor, the horizontal level can be displayed on the viewfinder screen, which helps particularly with wide-angle shooting.

HDLA large lens adaptor maximises operability

  • HDLA-1500, HDLA-1505, and HDLA-1507 adaptors maximise the operability of the HDC-1700. These optional adapters provide flexibility when applications require a large studio lens, and camera operators want to maintain hard camera control. They facilitate simple connectivity without time-consuming wiring and adjustments.

Optical fibre transmission with HDCU-1700, HDCU-1000/1500 and HDCU-2000/2500 CCUs

  • The HDC-1700 is capable of long-distance signal transmission with any HDCU Camera Control Unit (except HDCU-900/950) including the HDCU-1700, HDCU-1000, HDCU-1500, HDCU-2000 and HDCU-2500. The maximum cable extension varies with the HDCU type connected to the HDC-1700. In the case of the HDCU-1700, HDCU-1500 or HDCU-2500, the maximum cable extension is 2,000m. In the case of the HDCU-1000, the maximum cable extension is 3,000m. And in the case of the HDCU-2000, the maximum cable extension is 4,000m.
