Shaped for Pro-Style Shooting in Full-HD Move up to the shoulder-type preferred by professionals, and shoot in Full-HD or standard image quality in AVCHD format on SD card media. The stability of shoulder-mount shooting, packed into a high-mobility compact package. Complete with large grip and zoom lever, plus a wide-diameter focus ring for smooth, positive operation. REC start/stop button and zoom lever are mounted on the top of the hand grip. This is particularly helpful for smooth operation when shooting from low angles. The large, easy-to-hold focus ring gives you quick, precise focus control. It lets you take both subtle, delicate shots and bold, expressive shots. By contacting the camera at three points - the large eyecup, the grip belt, and the shoulder pad – you gain outstanding stability compared to a conventional “handy type” camera. The viewfinder tilts up and down - a real convenience when making high-angle and low-angle shots. In proportion to the zoom setting of the lens, the two ECMs (electret condenser microphones) adjust automatically to bring sound and images together for exceptional atmosphere. The MDH1 lets you shoot with Full-HD picture quality. You can capture the fine details of important events in high-definition and then enjoy the beautiful results on a large HDTV screen. Standard image quality can also be recorded by the camera. Therefore, you can choose the optimum format for different playback and editing situations. And since this standard image format is resized from Full-HD, picture quality is more attractive and detailed than in conventional DV recordings. Intelligent Zoom, which was achieved due to the Intelligent Resolution technology of the MDH1's image processing LSI “Crystal Engine PRO,” enables telephoto shots at up to 23x magnification. Even when the optical zoom range is exceeded, telephoto shots maintain their clear, beautiful HD image quality. Control settings are made by simply touching the LCD screen. Operation is intuitive and easy, and the large letters are easy to read. Shooting and viewing are simple and stress-free –even for beginners. The 35.8mm wide-angle setting on the MDH1 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 42mm lens**. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. For even wider angle 25mm* results, add the optional VW-4607H Wide Conversion Lens. This camera records on SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory Cards to provide outstanding compatibility with PC applications and rapid data transfer. Compared to the DVC format*, this media’ s image data can be transferred to a computer in about half the time** to get jobs done more efficiently.
