Product Specifications

Record quality videos with the new SC-D303 with its color viewfinder, and 900X Digital Zoom lens. By incorporating the IEEE 1394 high speed data transport port, both moving and still images can be transferred to a PC, making it possible to produce or edit various images. You can transfer images to a PC using the USB interface without an add-on card. The PHOTO function lets you capture an object as a still along with sound, while in Camera mode (DV only). 900x Digital zoom allows you to magnify an image up to 900 times its original size. A high-resolution color TFT LCD gives you clean, sharp images as well as the ability to review your recordings immediately. The DIS (Digital Image Stabilizer) compensates for any handshake, reducing unstable images particularly at high magnification. The DSE (Digital Special Effects) allows you to give your films a special look by adding various special effects. The BLC (Back Light Compensation) function compensates for the bright background behind a subject you're recording. The Program AE enables you to alter the shutter speed and aperture to suit the type of scene/action to be filmed. The NITE PIX function enables you to record a subject in a dark place. Using Memory Card, you can easily record and playback standard still images. You can transfer standard still images on the Memory Card to your PC using the USB interface. MPEG recording makes it possible to record video onto a Memory Card.
