With the Panasonic VDR-D200 DVD
camcorder with 30x optical zoom in your hands, you'll have some of the
most exciting technologies to be found anywhere in a home-video
camcorder. Featuring a powerful 30x optical zoom, an advanced optical
image stabilizer, and Panasonic's pure color engine and MPEG2 engine,
the VDR-D200 will give you the results and performance that have
previously only been possible in professional camcorder systems.
A Powerful 30x Optical Zoom
With one of the most--if not the most--powerful zooms offered in any
home-use camera, the VDR-D200 will make those distant images you've
long been craving to record yours for the asking. While many camcorders
can offer 30x of digital zoom or more, the image degradation of digital
zoom renders most distant images virtually unrecognizable. Digital
zooms basically enlarge the dots at the center of the image, producing
grainy images. In fact, the larger the zoom, the grainier the image. An
optical zoom, on the other hand, not only offers magnification without
the image degradation, it also focuses quickly, so you're ready to
shoot right away. (But if you really insist on zooming in on your
distant subject, the VDR-D200 also has the ability to achieve up to
1000x in digital zoom mode.) And while cameras with high-powered zooms
typically require a big and complicated lens, the VDR-D200 is light and
compact enough for you to carry with you easily.
Reducing Hand-Shake with Panasonic's Optical Image Stabilizer
Anyone who has ever recorded home video knows how difficult it is to
take perfectly stable shots. Hand-shake is one of the biggest problems
with home video. Panasonic has created a unique solution to this
problem--an optical image stabilizer system that corrects the problem
before the CCD imaging stage, so that it has virtually no effect on
image resolution or field of view. With this one-of-a-kind system,
you'll get automatic hand-shake correction every time you shoot.
Panasonic's Advanced Color Engines and High-Quality Optics
At the heart of the system is a 1/6-inch CCD, Panasonic's innovative
Pure Color Engine and MPEG2 Engine that together offer superb color
reproduction and performance. In short, the Pure Color Engine converts
the CCD output signal from a complementary color signal into an RGB
signal at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance
component from the RGB signal. This innovative process will help you
achieve superb color reproduction for all your shots, including your
high-zoomed pictures. Panasonic's MPEG2 engine is a wide-range,
high-precision search engine that produces smooth, beautiful motion
pictures. By using the same variable bit rate technology that Panasonic
developed for its high-end Diga DVD recorder, the MPEG2 engine will
enhance your LP recordings with nearly twice the resolution captured
with standard video cameras.
But none of this technology would
be worth a hoot if Panasonic didn't outfit the VDR-D200 with some of
the finest optics you'll find in any camcorder. Leica AG of Germany is
the manufacturer of fine cameras and lenses revered by generations of
photographers. The Leica Dicomar lens featured in the VDR-D200 was
developed specifically for digital video cameras. Drawing on Leica's
renowned optical technology, this advanced multi-coated lens captures
clear, crisp, finely nuanced images with outstanding detail and
Straight to DVD: No Computer Necessary
of the VDR-D200's most exciting features is its ability to record
directly to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW discs. With a DVD-RAM disc, you
can record up to tens of thousand times and view your results without
any finalizing process. You can also record repeatedly on DVD-RW discs.
While you can record only once on DVD-R discs, they can be played back
on almost any kind of DVD player or recorder. The camcorder
automatically finds a blank section on the disc for recording. You
never need to search for blank disc space, and there's no worry about
recording over a previous recording by mistake. With this versatility,
you'll have the option of recording on whichever kind of disc works
best in your DVD player or recorder.
With DVD's high-speed data
transfer, you can dub your recordings--even large volumes--quickly and
easily onto a DVD video recorder's hard disk drive for the editing
process. You can also do some polished editing using just the camera
itself. For example, you can delete scenes right on the spot or change
the scene sequence to create your own scenarios. It's also easy to
change the sequence of the scenes you've recorded, and then play them
back. And the camcorder's USB 2.0 compatibility means that you can
upload a motion picture data to a PC at high speed over a single USB
cable. Even if your PC has no DVD drive, you can transfer the data to a
PC seamlessly and quickly.
The Finer Details
VDR-D200 has a shutter speed range of between 1/60 and 1/3000 second.
With a 0 Lux Color Night View feature, you can shoot video in total
darkness. This function shoots four frames per second using the LCD
monitor as a light source. Pictures are clear and sharp, thanks to the
hand-shake compensation provided by the O.I.S. Light from the LCD is
gentle and easy on the eyes, so you can snap shots of sleeping children
without waking them up. Automatic functions, such as several scene
modes, make it easy to take the perfect video shots, and a 2.5-inch LCD
monitor makes it easy to keep track of your subjects. A built-in stereo
microphone lets you record in Dolby Digital stereo, giving your movie a
true-theater touch. The VDR-D200 also lets you capture still images at
a resolution of up to a remarkable 1640 x 480 pixels. An SD Card slot
for additional storage of your stills is included.
Panasonic's vision of the digital future is driven by the needs and
aspirations of its business customers and millions of consumers around
the world who use its products every day. The company shares their
dream to live a fuller life by providing ways of working smarter and
enjoying the rewards of technological advances.PRODUCT
