About this item

High-Quality Recordings, the Easy High-Quality Recordings, the Easy High-QualityRecordings, the Easy Way Professional Style Camcorder

The AG-DVC20 DV camcorder delivers highly professional results with easy operation. The shoulder-held design keeps it stable when recording sports,weddings or other events. The 3CCD camera system, Advanced Color Pure Engine, & 10x optical zoom lens deliver professional-level, high-quality images. And the navigation menu makes operation one-touch easy. The AG-DVC20 has the competitive advantage of being a highly affordable shoulder mounted camera with no competition at its price level.

Shoulder-Held Design The AG-DVC20 features a convenient shoulder-held design, extra-large handle grip, fingertip zoom control, & LCD panel & viewfinder for easy framing & viewing. A shoulder mounted camera yields more stable images with minimal hand shaking, earns that "on the job respect" & the larger body size also acts as a deterrent against theft.

3CCD & Advanced Color Pure Engine A 3CCD optical system is an absolute prerequisite for a professional-level camera. The AG-DVC20 combines this with the digital processing Advanced Color Pure Engine to capture consistently sharp, vivid images.

10x Optical Zoom Lens & Digital Zoom The AG-DVC20 comes with a powerful 10x optical zoom lens & adds a digital zoom function that provides ultra-telephoto zooming all the way to 500x. Its large multi speed zoom rocker is conveniently positioned on the handle grip for easy, responsive zoom operation.

This smart, easy operation switches the display to match the mode, for AUTO, MANUAL, or PLAY. Multilingual Menu: English, Chinese (simplified or traditional characters), Arabic, Persian, Spanish

Color Night View & Zero Lux Night View The Color Night View mode produces bright, vivid colors even in dimly lit locations. The LCD panel can also be used as a light source for shooting in total darkness with the Zero Lux Night View mode

Power LCD The AG-DVC20 features a bright 2.5-inch color LCD monitor. When shooting under strong sunlight, just press the Power LCD switch to increase the LCD brightness for a clearer, crisper view.
