About this item

The Panasonic AW-E650 is the advanced version of the 1/2-inch convertible camera that can fill a variety of remote production and industrial needs. The camera uses advanced digital noise reduction technology and a 12-bit DSP for very clear and ultimately true-looking video. Its custom color matrix and detail correction features allow you to get the special quality images required your individual production requirements. Additionally, low light capability is simply amazing.

The heart of the convertible system is the addition of optional feature cards. One optional adapter card converts the camera to a very high quality analog studio camera ready for a large viewfinder. There is a studio card that will output SDI video also. Another option is for using the camera on remote pan and tilt head. Full zoom and focus control in addition to pan and tilt functions are remotely controllable. Many of the analog video outputs that were previously optional are now standard. Completely new to the AW-350/650/655/750 cameras is that there is now the option of installing 2 cards for even easier, faster convertibility.
