The Sony DCR-VX2200E MiniDV Digital PAL Camcorder is a standard definition version of the HDR-FX1000E; the highly-anticipated successor to the acclaimed HDR-FX1E. The camera improves upon its predecessor in a variety of areas, including overall performance and range of features. CinemaTone technology enhances both gamma and color, providing exceptional images that exhibit a beautiful film-like aesthetic. At the heart of the camcorder are three 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Exmor sensors, which capture detailed imagery even in extremely low light at both 50i and 25p. Combined with a professional wide-angle lens and a super-high resolution LCD screen, the DCR-VX2200E is ideal for both the enthusiast and seasoned professional who's shooting exclusively in PAL format.
The DCR-VX2200E camcorder makes full use of a low dispersion glass 29.5-590mm G-Lens with a 20x optical zoom and 3 built-in ND filters. The lens comes equipped with a manual focus, iris and zoom, making it the first camera in its class to feature a fully professional lens! Bravo. The lens has a digital extender that increases magnification by 1.5x, making the lens achieve up to 30x digital zoom levels.
