DCR-IP1 Digital Handycam® Camcorder Handycam Station™ Base F E AT U R E S 1/5.0", 1 Megapixel (Gross) Advanced HAD™ CCD Imager 1/5.0" Advanced HAD™ (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 690K (effective) pixels provides excellent detail and clarity, with exceptional digital video performance (520 lines of horizontal resolution). Realize great looking still images utilizing 1000K (effective) pixels. The 1 Megapixel technology enhances your digital videos and digital still photography performance. MICROMV™ Format Video Recording The MICROMV recording format delivers digital picture and sound quality comparable to that of MiniDV, but on tapes that are 70% smaller. Also, with a standard 64K memory in each cassette, you get features not available on any other tape format such as thumbnail images of recorded scenes, scene searching and electronic scene titling. MPEG2 MPEG2 (Motion Pictures Experts Group) is a compression technology that is PC friendly and provides video quality comparable to DV. MPEG2 compression is widely used in digital satellite broadcasting and DVD players. PC editing has never been easier than with the supplied MPEG2 compatible MovieShaker™ software version 3.1. ➤Automatic Lens Cover The protective Automatic Lens Cover on the DCR-IP1 automatically opens when the power to the camcorder is turned on in the recording mode. This eliminates the need for an external lens cover and also allows the camcorder to be completely self-contained. Professional Quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® Lens Carl Zeiss lenses have an advanced optical multi-layer coating offering less glare and flare with increased contrast. This results in vivid image brilliance, true-to-life color saturation, and perfect renditions of subtle tones. ➤ STEP-UP F E AT U R E 10X Optical/120X Digital Zoom The optical zoom helps to bring the action up close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms. 2.0" Precision SwivelScreen™ Hybrid Touch Panel LCD Display (210K Pixels) The 210K pixel LCD provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The Hybrid system consists of a transmissive LCD combined with a reflective LCD. By turning off the backlight, it will capture more ambient light virtually eliminating LCD “wash-out.” Images will be visible in the LCD even in the most challenging outdoor lighting conditions. The “On Screen” touch panel system allows you to navigate through the camera’s menu system at the touch of the LCD screen. USB Streaming Stay connected with family and friends by broadcasting live video with audio, via the internet with the USB interface. You can even playback your favorite recorded scene stored on tape. It’s like having your own web camera or video conferencing system. The USB Interface also allows easy transfer of still images and MPEG1 movies stored on Memory Stick® Media to the computer. Digital Still Memory Mode with Memory Stick® Media Digital Still Memory Mode captures high quality Megapixel still images at up to 1152 x 864 resolution directly to Memory Stick media. Images are stored in the JPEG format providing easy transfer to PCs for emailing, printing, or sharing with family and friends. 16MB Memory Stick media is supplied. ➤Memory Stick Duo™ Media Slot With Memory Stick Duo Media being 1/3 the size of the standard-sized Memory Stick® Media, Memory Stick Duo offers the same benefits and capabilities, but in a smaller size, perfect for the Ultra Compact Camcorder. ➤MPEG Movie AX Mode MPEG Movie AX Mode captures high quality, 352 x 240 resolution at 30fps (frames per second), MPEG1 Movies uninterrupted up to the capacity of the Memory Stick Duo™ Media. For example, a 128MB Memory Stick® Media can record up to 20 minutes of non-stop MPEG1 Video with Audio. i.LINK®* MICROMV™ Interface (IEEE1394) Allows high speed digital communication between two compatible devices equipped with a MICROMV IEEE1394 interface. ➤Handycam Station™ Placing the DCR-IP1 on the supplied Handycam Station provides a quick and easy connection between the camcorder and an i.LINK® supported TV/VCR for viewing, or a computer for video and still image editing. It also supplies power to the camcorder for charging the battery. Cassette Memory Each MICROMV™ cassette comes equipped with a built-in 64KB Memory Chip that stores Custom Titles, valuable cassette information such as cassette ID and usage dates, and thumbnail image information from the beginning of a recorded scene. Thumbnail images allow for easy access to recorded scenes. Multi-Picture Search Exclusive to MICROMV cassettes is the ability to provide thumbnail images of all recorded scenes, allowing quick and easy access to your favorite video memories. Color Slow Shutter Color Slow Shutter mode allows you to record in low light situations with full color detail by slowing down the shutter speed. Super SteadyShot Picture Stabilization System An advanced version of Sony’s SteadyShot® System that controls an even higher range of shake and vibration frequencies to achieve an even higher level of smoothness without degradation of video like some other image stabilization systems.
