2/3" Power HAD EX CCDs
The DSR-450WSP incorporates 2/3" type Power HAD EX CCD sensors (16:9 aspect ratio).
It delivers high imaging quality performance such as high sensitivity (F11 at 2000 lx), high S/N ratio (63 dB) and low smear level (-140 dB).
2.5" Built-in LCD Panel
The retractable 2.5" colour LCD monitor can be tilt freely so that it can help the shooting operation at high or low angle.
The LCD monitor displays camera picture with characters (like viewfinder), camera picture without characters, or Time Code & Audio Level Meter on black background.
Scene File Store on Memory Stick
The DSR-450WSP can save utp to 5 scene files in the camcorder memory and up to 100 scene files in the Memory Stick. The stored data in the Memory Stick can be transferred to the camcorder memory or vice versa, so that the setting data can be copied to ther other camcorders easily.
There are 4 assignable buttons available, the two on the side panel and the other two on the handle.
Each button can assign a function which frequently requires instant operation, such as ATW or REC Start/Stop. For the two buttons on the handle, a slide cover is equipped in order to avoid mis-operation.
The value of gain that is assigned to the setting of (H / M / L) of the Gain switch can be preset from -3, 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 30 or 36 dB.
Electric CC Filter
With the wide-band white balance amplifier circuit, the electric CC filter covers a wide range of colour temperature conditions without an optical CC filter.
By having this function, users do not need to care the colour temperature before activating auto white balance.
Auto-Tracing White Balance (ATW)
This function automatically traces the white balance, which constantly changes as lighting conditions change. It is useful especially when there is no time to manually adjust the white balance, or when shooting objects move between indoor and outdoor locations.
Interval Recording (Time-lapse)
Using the Interval recording function, you can create time-lapse videos for various specialized projects such as plant growth.
The interval time can be selected from 30 sec or 1 / 5 / 10 / 30 / 60 minutes, and the recording duration time from 0.5 / 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 5 / 10 / 30 sec or 1 / 5 / 10 minutes.
The DSR-450WSP provides an analogue composite output as standard, with an SDI output board (CBK-SD01) as a plug-in option. An optional composite input board (CBK-SC01) is also available for pool feed applications.
High Power Video Light Connector
A video light connector (max. 50W) and control switch are provided. You can set the switch to turn the light on and off automatically as you start and stop the VTR.
InfoLithium Battery Compatible
The DSR-450WSP supports the information battery function. Using with BP-GL95/GL65 battery back, more precise and detailed information on remaining battery power is displayed on the viewfinder.
Camera Remote Control via RM-B150/B750
Camera settings and basic VTR functions can be remotely controlled using an optional RM-B150 or RM-B750 Remote Control Unit via its 8-pin.
