Product Specifications

The VL-NZ105U digital Viewcam with digital still capture has an 8MB SD memory card included for an easy transfer to a PC and for e-mailing images easily. It can also still images from tape to memory card. The 10x optical lens provides the best picture quality and the digital 300x zoom allows images to be captured at a distance. Digital image stabilization compensates for image shake when a tripod is not used improving the quality of the video. Digital Picture Effects allow different digital effects (B&W, Sepia, NEG) to be viewed without effecting the original recording and to give your video a custom-edited look. On-screen recording guide helps the user line-up landscape footage and can be used as a guide for the safe zone or center of lens for easy framing of subject matter. Both gain up and backlight compensation correct the exposure in poor lighting conditions to easily capture the best picture possible. Add to this I-Link - a digital port for transferring full-motion video and sound to a PC equipped with an I-Link port for video editing on a PC.
