Item Description
Sony DCR-TRV950 Video Camera

3 CCD Using a 3 chip Advanced HAD CCD system and dichroic prism to separate color information, colors are extremely accurate, and color "bleeding" and "smearing" are significantly reduced.

Three 1/4.7" Advanced HAD CCD Imagers, 1.0 Mega Pixel Gross 3-1/4.7" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imagers with 690K effective Pixels per CCD provides excellent detail and clarity, with exceptional digital video performance. Realize great looking digital still images utilizing 1000K effective pixels. The Mega Pixel technology enhances your digital videos and digital photography performance.

Mini DV Recording Mini DV digital recording format delivers 3X color bandwidth of VHS and lower signal to noise ratio compared to analog formats and provides stunning video performance.

Advanced HAD CCD Technology The Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) enhanced CCD design allows for more light to reach the imager which reduces video noise to improve signal-to-noise ratio by up to 6dB (2X better than a standard CCD imager). Particularly effective when shooting in dark situations.

530 Lines of Horizontal Resolution Sony's Advanced HAD Mega Pixel CCD technology, combined with premium optics provide outstanding video performance with up to 530 horizontal lines of resolution.

Network Capability with BlueTooth Technology: Connect the camera, wirelessly, via BlueTooth technology, to the Internet. This allows wireless transfer of still images and MPEG1 movies, captured on Memory Stick® media, via the optional modem adapter (BTA-NW1). Images and MPEG movies can be emailed to family and friend, or shared via Sony's ImageStationSM Service on the World Wide Web. You can even browse the Internet wirelessly.

12X Optical/150X Digital Zoom Brings the action close-up from far away for greater creativity, performance and convenience.

3.5" Precision SwivelScreen LCD Display (246K Pixels) The 3.5" SwivelScreen LCD display provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 246K pixel LCD display makes images sharp and detailed during playback or when monitoring recording.

Touch Panel LCD with Stylus The "On Screen" touch panel system allows you to navigate through the camera's menu system at the touch of the LCD screen using the supplied stylus or a finger.

Precision Color Viewfinder (180K Pixels) Increased pixel count provides more detail and clarity of video subjects.

Super SteadyShot Optical Stabilization System Minimizes even high frequency shake and vibration using motion sensors and an optical active prism stabilization system, for better performance even in difficult shooting situations.

Memory Mode with Memory Stick® Media Digital Still Memory Mode captures high quality Mega Pixel still images up to 1152 x 864 resolution directly to Memory Stick® media. Images are stored in a JPEG format providing easy transfer to PCs for email, printing, or sharing with family and friends.

MPEG Movie EX Mode Unlike other MPEG1 movies, MPEG Movie EX will allow you to record uninterrupted to the full capacity of the Memory Stick media. For example, the 128MB Memory Stick media will record up to 85 minutes of non-stop MPEG videos.

i.LINK® (1) DV Interface (IEEE1394) A high-speed bi-directional digital video/audio communication between two devices equipped with a IEEE1394 interface, including camcorders, digital VCRs, and PCs.

Intelligent Auto Pop Up Flash with Red-Eye Reduction Provides the appropriate amount of flash for optimum brightness and color accuracy in virtually any lighting condition. The Red-Eye Reduction system uses a series of pre-flashes that cause the subject's pupils to contract, reducing the possibility of reflection from the back of the eye that causes the red-eye problem.

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 and video conferencing system.

Kenko 37mm UV Filter
Ultra Violet lens filters absorbs ultraviolet rays which often make outdoor images hazy and indistinct. Improves clarity & color balance to give cleaner, sharper pictures with less haze. Improves contrast and color saturation by reducing the effects of ultraviolet light, atmospheric dust and haze in sunny landscapes. Also protects front lens elements from dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and breakage, and protects filter attachment threads from damage.
Tiffen 37mm Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Glass Filter
In conditions of extreme light intensity, such as sunshine on snowy mountains or on the beach, or when using a camcorder, ND (Neutral Density) filters are essential. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film, they have no affect on color balance. They have four main uses:

• To enable slow shutter speeds to be used to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, cars, seas etc.
• To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background.
• To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (ie: above ISO400) and allow it to be used outdoors in blight situations.
• To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which would normally cause over-exposure.
