Ideal for use in space-limited locations, the DXC-C33/C33P incorporates one of the smallest/lightest camera head unit featuring three 1/3 type CCDs.
In spite of its compact (32 (W) x 38 (H) x 40 (D) mm, (1 5/16 x 1 1/2 x 1 5/8 inches) and lightweight (48 g, 1.7 oz) camera head unit, this model inherits superb picture quality of the DXC Series.
Small camera head
The DXC-C33/C33P can be installed in space-limited locations. The size of the camera head unit (CHU) is one of the smallest of all the 1/3 type 3-CCD cameras.
High picture quality
The DXC-C33/C33P can clearly capture detailed images of objects. Adoption of three 1/3 type CCDs allows the camera to realize 2000 lux at F8, S/N ratio of 62 dB (NTSC) or 61 dB (PAL) and achieve a horizontal resolution of 850 TV lines.
DV output terminal allows image recording into i.LINK interface-equipped VTR with no quality deterioration. This feature is first introduced to small head 3CCD cameras.
The DXC-C33/C33P can capture superior pictures by adopting full Digital Signal Processing (DSP) of 10 bits.
This function automatically adjusts contrast corresponding to the brightness signal level of the entire image. Clear images can be captured if both bright and dark areas exist within an image.
Built-in frame memory can provide a freeze image and a remarkably enhanced image in sensitivity by longtime exposure function. Images captured by long-time exposure function can be output continuously.
This function allows a particular color to be selected, and its hue, saturation and detail altered. In addition, the detail produced by the high resolution of the camera can be softened or emphasized in certain parts of the image by the Partial Enhance function.
User-friendly control panel
The front panel is easy to use with smartly arranged knob switches and good-sized switches.
Two AE areas preset
AE (Automatic Exposure) function is very useful to determine the best area for incoming light metering. Users can select and set up two of the six different AE modes and can easily switch them at front panel.
Easy control and operation of the camera by an external computer is possible.
External synchronization (HD/VD, VBS)
External, synchronization allows for multiple camera operation.
