The Panasonic AK-HC1800G Multi-Purpose HD Box Camera is capable of delivering broadcast-quality HD images to a wide range of high-end applications. Whether shooting sports, weather reports, POV, or reality TV, the AK-HC1800G derives the very highest 1080i video quality from its 3 high-performance 2/3" CCDs and 14-bit DSP technology. With its lowlight sensitivity, 12-axis color matrix adjustment, and Cine Gamma settings, the AK-HC1800G can mimic the tones and dynamic range of film, delivering rich colors that contain fuller blacks and less washed-out whites.
At the same time, the camera's bayonet lens mount makes it compatible with all 2/3" broadcast lenses, including Canon and Fujinon motor drive lenses. Its compatibility extends to Panasonic's line of high-performance pan-tilt systems, while its compact size, HD-SDI output, and other professional connections (genlock, tally, etc.) ensure that it's truly multi-functional--from concerts to football fields to houses of worship.
