Perfect for taking on a trip or recording long events. Extended recording for extended shooting fun.
The internal 30 GB hard disk drive holds as much video data as about 22 8-centimeter DVD discs. That means you can record for around 27 hours without changing a disc, tape or anything else. This SD Card/Hard Disk camcorder is perfect for people who want to shoot for hour after hour without worrying about memory space.
3CCD camera system Most professional broadcast cameras use the 3CCD system. In a 1CCD system, all of the incoming light information is processed by the same CCD. The more advanced 3CCD system uses three distinct CCDs for processing, so there is absolutely no light loss. You can see the results in beautifully rendered images with vivid color, fine detail, and rich gradation.
O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Panasonic's O.I.S. minimizes the hand-shake that can be such a problem with handheld shots. Because Panasonic's system is optical, there is no image quality degradation.
Advanced Pure Color Engine The Advanced Pure Color Engine is a special image processing circuit for 3CCD camera systems. It processes the R, G and B signals from the three CCDs individually, so it gives both moving and still pictures exceptional quality.
MPEG2 engine Panasonic's MPEG2 engine is a wide-range, highprecision engine that produces smooth, beautiful moving pictures. Because it precisely records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions with exceptional precision. The MPEG2 engine also uses the Variable Bit Rate system that Panasonic adopted for the high-end DIGA DVD recorder. Giving LP (long play mode) recordings nearly twice the resolution captured with previous Panasonic MPEG2 recording video cameras, this lets the DVD camcorder record clear, smoothly flowing pictures.
Take breathtaking stills with 3.1-megapixel still-picture recording The SDR-H200 records 3.1-megapixel still pictures. It captures all of the outstanding detail, color and sensitivity. Whether you take still pictures in 16:9 wide mode or 4:3 mode, you get beautiful images. You can print beautiful photos as well as view slide shows on a TV in any mode you like.
