SD Card Full-HD Camcorder featuring Advanced 3MOS System and 35mm Wide-angle Leica Dicomar Lens
The SD600’s high-sensitivity 3MOS system has achieved 7.59 million effective motion image pixels (2.53 megapixels x 3). This image sensor offers beautiful images with significantly better colour quality, detail and gradation than the 1MOS sensor system. The large-diameter F1.5 lens, 3MOS sensors, and newly developed Crystal Engine PRO have improved the efficiency of light gathering, increased sensitivity, and reduced noise by one-half to provide users with bright, low-noise recording even in dim lighting.
1080/50p recording (Full-HD, 1920 × 1080, 50 progressive recording) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording to produce the ultimate beauty in image quality, exceeding even conventional Full-HD images. It minimises afterimages and moiré patterns caused by subject motion and renders crisp, detailed images. 64GB SDXC Card can record approximately 27 hours and 30 minutes of 1920 × 1080i high-definition video in HE mode and approximately 5 hours and 20 minutes of 1920 × 1080p full high-definition video in 1080/50p mode.
The O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which uses gyrosensors to detect hand-shake and moves a corrective lens to adjust the optical axis and eliminate blurring, has further evolved. While the conventional O.I.S. system could not sufficiently eliminate low-frequency hand-shake, the POWER O.I.S. is able to correct it about five times more effectively. The POWER O.I.S. also features an Active mode to assure clear, beautiful images across the entire range from wide angle to telephoto.
The 12x optical zoom lens is further enhanced by Intelligent Resolution Technology in the Crystal Engine PRO image-processing circuit, to produce the 18x Intelligent Zoom. The zoom achieves even greater image detail. And the SD600 is also equipped with a 35mm* wide-angle lens that is ideal for many different shooting situations, such as self-portraits and group photos indoors, and landscape shots outdoors. * 35mm camera equivalent
The iA function includes Face Recognition feature that recognises the faces of previously registered subjects, and automatically optimises the focus and exposure for those special people. It continues to track the subject as he or she moves anywhere within the LCD frame, making it ideal for video shooting. It is extremely useful for capturing someone’s face in a group. Names can also be registered and displayed on the LCD while shooting. A total of six people can be registered, and up to three people at a time can be detected when shooting.
