Sony PDW F800 camcorder, 800 hrs, used
3 month warranty
The PDW-F800 offers multi-format recording flexibility as standard - including SD recording and a frame rate of 23.98P in 1080 mode. The PDW-F800 camcorder builds on the features of the PDW-700 camcorder. Enhanced functions, such as Slow & Quick Motion (over-crank and under-crank recording), make the PDW-F800 ideal for cinema and TV drama productions, natural history, documentary, sport as well as ENG applications.
2/3-inch-type Three HD Power HAD FX CCDs
The PDW-F800 is equipped with three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCDs, which are also used in the well-proven HDC-1500 Sony Multi-format HD Camera. Based on Sony Power HAD FX sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this CCD offers a high sensitivity of F12 at 50Hz and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 59dB with NS.
In addition to this performance, a wide variety of capturing modes including 1080/50i, 1080/59.94i, 1080/25P and 1080/29.97P are available.
14-bit A/D Conversion
The PDW-F800 incorporates a high-performance 14-bit A/D converter that enables images captured by the high-performance CCDs to be processed with maximum precision. In particular, this high-resolution A/D conversion allows the gradation in mid-to-dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced. Thanks to the 14-bit A/D converter, pre-knee signal compression in highlighted areas can be eliminated, and the camera can clearly reproduce a high-luminance subject at a 600% dynamic range.
State-of-the-art DSP LSI
The newly developed DSP (Digital Signal Processing) LSI is the heart of the image-processing device for the PDW-F800 camcorder. In conjunction with the 14-bit A/D converter, it reproduces images captured by the CCD at maximum quality. In addition, white balance, white shading, and flare are digitally corrected, allowing for stable image correction. What’s more, the PDW-F800 provides a NS (Noise Suppression) mode to reduce high-frequency noise elements in a video signal using Sony’s advanced digital processing technology.
High-quality 24-bit Audio Recording
The PDW-F800 records uncompressed four-channel, 24-bit audio. It is also equipped with a range of audio interfaces.
