DXC-D35WSL/D35WSPL” (page 12) for using the
DXC-D35WSL/S35WSPL.
Variety of detail corrections
• Skin detail function: this function gives a slightly
softer appearance to the subject’s face. The target
skin color can be automatically set.
• Black halo correction
• Red/green vertical detail correction: this function
performs vertical detail compensation for both red
and green signals.
• Horizontal detail frequency control
Recording and managing setup data
2
/3-inch IT type Power HAD (WS) CCD
The DXC-D35/D35P Color Video Camera uses 2/3inch IT type Power HAD CCDs. (For the DXCD35WSL/D35WSPL, Power HAD WS CCDs are
used. ) It outperforms most of the exiting FIT type
CCD cameras for high-end use, in both picture quality
and sensitivity.
• Smear: –125 dB (DXC-D35/D35P) or –120 dB
(DXC-D35WSL/D35WSPL)
• Sensitivity: F11.0 (at 3200 K, 2000 lux)
• S/N: 63 dB (DXC-D35/D35WSL) or 61 dB (DXCD35P/D35WSPL)
Sophisticated image processing
TruEye™ processing makes possible the following
performance features. This new digital signal
processing has brought reproduction of natural colors
to the level achieved by the human eye.
DynaLatitude™
Enables detailed adjustment of contrast control in each
pixel in accordance with a histogram of luminance
signal levels (see page 45).
DCC+ (dynamic contrast control plus)
Prevents white breakup when shooting a high intensity
subject, and also prevents color faults in high intensity
subject.
In addition to the setup menu that is displayed in the
viewfinder screen, the DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/
D35WSPL is equipped with the following functions to
facilitate camera head setup.
Setup file system
You can use setup files when making adjustments or
settings. The DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/D35WSPL
comes with factory preset files that contain shipped
settings and you can freely create user files as well.
Automatic recording of setup data (when
using DSR-1/1P)
When the DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/D35WSPL is
connected to the DSR-1/1P VTR, two types of setup
data can be recorded.
SetupLog™: Shooting-related environment settings
are recorded onto the tape at intervals of a few
seconds. This recorded data can then be used to
reproduce the same shooting conditions in
subsequent shots. It also makes it easier to
identify the causes of problems in previous shots.
SetupNavi™: The setup conditions selected with the
setup menu and setup files are recorded onto the
tape. The recorded setup data can be copied to
other camera heads so that the same setup can be
shared among several camera heads.
Black stretch and compress
Enables control of luminance signal levels in black
areas without changing the hue.

Features
ClipLink™ Function (when using DSR1/1P)
Chapter 1 Overview
The ClipLink function can be used at every step from
acquisition to editing. Information necessary for
editing is recorded when shooting to ensure fast and
efficient editing operations.
When you set a recording start (Rec IN) point or when
you press the TAKE button to set a Mark IN point, the
video image at that point is recorded on the tape in
compressed form as an Index Picture. In addition, the
time codes for such editing points (Mark IN/Mark
OUT points or cue points) are recorded along with
other editing point data (such as the cassette number
and scene number) into cassette memory (as ClipLink
log data). Unsuccessful scenes containing faults can
also be marked in cassette memory as “NG”, so that
only the good scenes are taken up from cassette
memory when editing.
Dockable with various types of VTRs
The DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/D35WSPL docks with
the DSR-1/1P DVCAM VTR to configure a digital
camcorder. It also docks with the PVV-3/3P Betacam
SP VTR to configure a Betacam SP camcorder. In
addition, the DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/D35WSPL
docks with the EVV-9000/9000P Hi-8 VTR. Using an
adaptor (not supplied), it is also able to dock with a
variety of existing S-VHS VTRs.
New Functions boost operability
EZ (easy) mode function
When there isn’t time to check the camera head
settings, simply press the EZ mode button to start the
auto adjustment function using standard settings.
There is no need to lose a shot for lack of setup time.

The amount of gain relative to the GAIN switch
setting (H, M, or L) can be programmed as –3 dB, 0
dB, 3 dB, 6 dB, 9 dB, 12 dB, 18 dB, 18 dB+DPR1), 24
dB,
24 dB+DPR and hyper gain.
Hyper gain
Hyper gain (36 dB or 42dB, i.e. about 60 times or 120
times greater than
0 dB) can be easily set via one switch setting. This
can also be done from remote equipment.
Auto tracing white balance
This function automatically traces the white balance,
which constantly changes as lighting conditions
change. Auto tracing white balance is especially
useful when there is no time to manually adjust the
white balance or when shooting moves between indoor
and outdoor locations.
Total level control system (TLCS)
Even if the incoming light exceeds the range in which
the standard auto iris can control exposure, the auto
gain control (AGC) or auto exposure (AE) backs up to
ensure proper exposure.
Dual pixel readout (DPR)
When the gain is set to either 18 dB or 24 dB, the gain
setting can be doubled (6 dB up) without increasing
the noise level.
Recording time display
Recording time can be displayed in either of the
following modes.
• Total recording time for all cuts
• Total recording time for current cut
Viewfinder super detail
Video signals for the viewfinder are mixed with DTL
signals to make focusing easier.
EZ (easy) focus
Press the EZ focus button before shooting to ensure a
quick and accurate focus.

dB (a 30 or 36 dB increase by electronic amplification
and a 6 dB increase for DPR, bringing about a total
gain increase of 36 or 42 dB).
When this switch is in the ON position, the indication
“HYPER” appears in the viewfinder, and the GAIN
UP indicator in the viewfinder also lights.
When finished shooting, return this switch to the OFF
position. The “HYPER” indication disappears and the
GAIN UP indicator goes out.
Note
Increasing the gain with this switch reduces the
horizontal resolution by 50%.

Connecting a Number of Cameras (Using a Camera Control Unit)
When using a number of cameras in the studio, it may
be necessary to use a CCU-M5/M5P/M7/M7P Camera
Control Unit to provide video and color sync between
cameras, and special effects and other devices to allow
switching, wipes and so forth.
In the studio it may also be convenient to use a DXF41/51 Viewfinder.
The figure in the next page shows an example studio
configuration.
For details, consult your Sony dealer.
Notes
• When using a camera control unit, put the camera
head into the EZ mode off state beforehand (see page
14). (Otherwise, it is impossible to access the
advanced menu.)
• With the DXC-D35/D35P/D35WSL/D35WSPL,
color matrix switching on the CCU-M5/M5P is
invalid.
• When the DL in advanced menu page 2 is set to ON
(see page 64) and the OUTPUT/DL/DCC+ switch is
set to DL, knee adjustment does not function on the
CCU-M7/M7P.

Notes
• A warm battery pack may not be able to be fully
recharged.
• Even when fully charged, battery packs gradually
lose their charge naturally. Use the battery packs as
soon as possible after recharging.
• To prolong the life of battery packs, store them in a
cool place (about 20°C (68°F)), and charge in a place
with an ambient temperature between 10°C and 30°C
(50°F and 86°F).
• At low temperatures, the usable time of battery packs
decreases. When the ambient temperature is 0°C
(32°F), usable time decreases by about 10%. The
usable time of battery packs increases if they are
warmed to the room temperature (about 20°C (68°F))
before use at low temperatures.
• Compared to the BP-L40, the BP-L60A offers better
performance at low temperature. The BP-L60A is
recommended for use at low temperature.
• Carrying a spare battery pack is recommended.
The camera adaptor automatically operates on power
supplied to the VTR/CCU/CMA connector from the
portable VTR, CCU-M5A/M5AP Camera Control
Unit, CMA-8A/8ACE AC Adaptor or other connected
device.
Note
Before use, check that the device connected to the
VTR/CCU/CMA connector is able to provide the
power required by the camera.
If it is not able to provide the necessary power, or
when it is necessary to prolong the operating time, use
the camera with a separate power supply.
The BP-L40/L60A is free from memory effect.
There is no need to discharge it fully before
recharging.

White Balance Adjustment
Adjusting the white balance ensures that as lighting
conditions change white objects remain white in the
image and tones remain natural.
The color of light emitted varies from one light source
to another, and as the lighting changes the apparent
color of an illuminated subject changes. It is therefore
necessary to adjust the white balance each time the
principal lighting source changes.

Saving an Appropriate White
Balance Value in Memory
You can save two white balance values in separate
memories, A and B. Unless changed, the saved values
are retained for approximately ten years, even when
the camera is powered off.
Once a value is saved, you can automatically restore
the adjustment by moving the W. BAL switch to the A
or B position. This makes shooting under alternating
lighting conditions easy.
Separate white balance values for each
FILTER control setting
In the default case, as described above, the same two A
and B white balance values apply to all four settings of
the FILTER control. It is possible, however, to change
the AWB MEM menu setting is advanced menu page 3
(see page 65) so that there are eight possibly different
values for the A and B positions and for the four
FILTER control settings.

Adjustment of the white balance to match the light
source is essential to ensure correct color rendering.
The color of a light source is indicated as a color
temperature in kelvins (K). It is higher for bluish light,
and lower for reddish light. When the camera is
shipped it is adjusted for use with video lights (halogen
lamps with a color temperature of 3200 K). For use
with other light sources, therefore, adjustment is
required.
First use the FILTER control to set the approximate
color temperature, then carry out white balance
adjustment.
The following table shows typical color temperature
values for different light sources.
The ATW function continuously adjusts the white
balance automatically to adapt to changes in lighting
conditions.
Note
Depending on the shooting conditions, automatic
adjustment may not necessarily give optimum results.
For the best possible results, use the W. BAL switch.
To use the ATW function

Shutter Settings
This section covers the settings for electronic shutter
speed, CLS (clear scan ) and EVS function.
The new value for the shutter speed or clear scan
frequency and EVS setting remains set until changed,
even when the camera is powered off.
Shutter speeds
There are five shutter speeds, from 1/100 s (DXC-D35/
D35WSL) or 1/60 s (DXC-D35P/D35WSPL) to 1/2000 s.
Increasing the shutter speed reduces blurring when
shooting a fast-moving subject. It is also possible to
reduce flicker when shooting under fluorescent
lighting by changing the shutter speed.
CLS (Clear Scan) function
When shooting a computer screen or projected image,
horizontal bands may appear in the camera image.
This is because the vertical scan frequency of the
computer-generated image is different from the
vertical scan frequency of the video system. The clear
scan function allows you to select a vertical scan
frequency to reduce this interference.
EVS (Enhanced Vertical Scan)
This function enhances the vertical scan resolution
from 400 to 450 lines (or 450 to 530 lines) to reduce
flicker. However, this increases the aliasing.

Notes on setting the shutter speed
• The faster you make the shutter speed, the darker the
image becomes. Check the brightness in the
viewfinder, and if necessary increase the lighting
level or adjust the iris.
• When the shutter speed is very fast, shooting a high
intensity subject may cause long vertical tails to
appear on the highlights (smear).
Note on setting the CLS function
The vertical scan frequencies of computer screens
vary, and it may not be possible to eliminate the
interference patterns entirely. Note also that the

Important Notes on Operation
Fitting the zoom lens
It is important to fit the lens correctly, as otherwise
damage may result. Be sure to refer to the section
“Fitting the Lens” (See page 30).
Do not cover the unit while operating
Putting a cloth, for example, over the unit can cause
excessive internal heat build-up.
Operation and storage
Avoid storing or operating the unit in the following
conditions.
• In excessive heat or cold (operating temperature
range: –10 °C to +45 °C (14 °F to 113 °F))
Remember that in summer in warm climates the
temperature inside a car with the windows closed can
easily exceed 50 °C (122 °F).
• In damp or dusty locations
• Locations where the unit may be exposed to rain
• Locations subject to violent vibration
• Close to radio or TV transmitters producing strong
electromagnetic fields.
Shipping
Use the optional LC-421 Carrying Case for optimal
shipping.
If sending the camera by truck, ship, air or other
transportation service, first store it in the carrying case,
then pack the carrying case in the supplied carton (or
an equivalent).
Care of the unit
Remove dust and dirt from the surfaces of the lenses or
optical filters using a blower.
If the body of the camera is dirty, clean it with a soft,
dry cloth. In extreme cases, use a cloth steeped in a
little neutral detergent, then wipe dry. Do not use
organic solvents such as alcohol or thinners, as these
may cause discoloration or other damage to the finish
of the unit.
In the event of operating problems
If you should experience problems with the unit,
contact your supplier or Sony service representative.
Viewfinder
• Do not leave the camera with the eyepiece pointing
directly at the sun.
The eyepiece lens can concentrate the sun’s rays and
melt the interior of the viewfinder.
• Do not use the viewfinder close to strong magnetic
fields. This can cause picture distortion.

Characteristics of CCD Sensors
The following effects may appear in the image. They
are characteristic of cameras using CCDs (chargecoupled devices), and do not indicate a malfunction.
Vertical smear
When shooting a very bright object, such as a light, the
highlight tends to produce vertical tails. This effect is
much reduced in this camera.

What Is ClipLink?
The ClipLinkTM function greatly improves the
efficiency of the video production process as a whole
by recording various editing-related data on tape when
shooting. As such, ClipLink is a revolutionary
function that transcends the conventional separation of
shooting and editing.
Next, begin rough editing by viewing the Index
Pictures on the EditStation’s GUI display and
rearranging them as you wish. This eliminates the
difficult work of matching up a handwritten shot list
with recorded scenes. After you have completed this
rough editing, you can then transfer only the
recordings needed for your video program.
Note
When an external equipment, such as VCR, is
connected to the DV OUT connector, the ClipLink
function will not work.
How ClipLink Changes Video
Production Techniques
The following describes various ways in which
ClipLink1) video production differs from conventional
video production.
Recording of ClipLink log data lightens
the shooting workload
When you start shooting a scene, ClipLink log data
such as the scene number and time code data are
automatically recorded into the cassette memory. This
eliminates the need for a conventional “shot list”
compiled by someone using a stopwatch, clipboard
and pencil. You can also designate unwanted scenes as
“NG” (no good) and automatically skip all “NG”
scenes when editing.
Recorded Index Pictures drastically cut
editing time
High-speed transfer of recordings
It is also possible to transfer the editing material itself
between the DSR-85/85P and ES-7 at four times
normal speed. In other words, the transfer can be
carried out in one fourth of the real time duration. It is
of course possible to carry out a transfer at four times
normal speed when backing up video and audio data
recorded on the disk drive to the DSR-85/85P, or in the
opposite direction when loading data backed up on the
DSR-85/85P to the disk drive. Thus the time required
is much shorter than with conventional equipment (for
which, for example, transferring a 40-minute segment
of video takes 40 minutes).
Note
When using a tape recorded by a DVCAM camcorder
to transfer digital (video/audio/time code) signals at
four times normal speed from the DSR-85/85P Digital
Videocassette Recorder to the ES-7 EditStation for
editing purposes, there must be about at least 40
seconds of recording on the tape before the IN point.
To perform editing without problems, it is
recommended that you pre-record at least 40
seconds of color bar signals at the beginning of the
tape.
Appendix
The ClipLink function also features Index
Pictures a time-saving tool for rough editing. Each
Index Picture is a compressed image taken from the
start of each scene, which is recorded onto the tape as
a still picture. When editing, begin by transferring
only the Index Pictures and the ClipLink log data to
the EditStation’s hard disk. You can also transfer OK
scenes only (“NG” scenes are skipped).

When shooting, a single-frame image from the Mark
IN point at the start of each scene is recorded as a still
picture into the DSR-1/1P’s internal memory. These
images are called “Index Pictures”. When you finish
shooting, the Index Pictures from all scenes are
recorded onto the tape after the last scene.
720 dots
After shooting, the Index
Pictures in the internal
memory are recorded onto
the video tape.
Up to 32 Index Pictures can be recorded onto the tape
space normally occupied by one frame, as shown
below.
Seven frame spaces are reserved at the end of the last
scene as a recording area for Index Pictures. (A
cassette with 16 Kbits of cassette memory can record
up to 198 Index Pictures, and a cassette with 4 Kbits of
cassette memory can record up to 45 Index Pictures.)
ClipLink log data
ClipLink log data can be recorded automatically or
manually into the cassette memory for use as a
convenient alternative to the conventional “shot list”.
ClipLink log data includes the following items.
Appendix
ClipLink log data
Description
Reel number (cassette number)
Data (maximum length: 8 digits) consisting of alphanumeric characters and/or symbols
(This is left blank at shipping.)
Scene number
A three-digit number from 001 to 198 (starts at 001 and is automatically incremented
with each scene).
Take number
This cannot be changed (set to “1” at shipping).
OK/NG
Indicates the OK/NG status of a particular scene. (In the OK case, nothing is
recorded.)
Mark IN/OUT point time codes
These are the time codes that indicate the Mark IN and Mark OUT points for each
scene (HH:MM:SS). These time codes are recorded when the camcorder has been
set to Mark mode.
The frame digit is incremented at each Mark IN point and is decremented at each Mark
OUT point. (For details, see “Time codes recorded for Mark IN/OUT points” on page
106)
Cue point time code
104
Appendix
This is the time code that indicates the cue points (valid up to the frame digit). This
time code is recorded when the camcorder has been set to Cue mode. When in this
mode, the time codes at the start and end of a recording (the Rec IN and Rec OUT
time codes) are automatically recorded as Mark IN/OUT points.
How to record ClipLink log data
The following describes how to record the various
ClipLink log data items.
OK/NG status
To designate a scene as “NG”, press the NG button on
the camcorder while shooting the scene or at any time
before you begin shooting the next scene.
All scenes that do not receive an “NG” designation are
recorded as “OK” scenes.
(When you exit the VCR recording mode, changing
the OK/NG status is no longer possible.)
Mark IN/OUT points time codes
This data is especially useful when shooting a video
program for which a scenario has been created.
Set the camcorder to Mark mode before you start
shooting. While shooting, each time you press the
camcorder’s TAKE button, Mark IN and Mark OUT
time codes are recorded alternately.
Index Picture 1
Cue point time codes
This type of data is especially useful when shooting
scenes that may contain unexpected events, such as
when shooting for sports coverage or documentaries.
Set the camcorder to Cue mode before you start to
record. While recording, each time you press the
camera’s TAKE button, the current time code is
recorded as a cue point time code.
