The AG-EZ30U is exceptionally lightweight yet incorporates a 3CCD and color LCD that define the state of the art in DV video format technology. DV and Panasonic's 3CCD combine to deliver a level of picture and sound quality that makes the AG-EZ30U the world's most advanced camera of its kind. This compact unit also offers sophisticated auto functions and gives operators the flexibility of manual control when desired, and it uses convenient Mini-DV cassette tapes that can be played back on DVCPRO VCRs with a simple adaptor. These features make the AG-EZ30U ideal for everything from video journalism and news gathering for broadcast studios, to professional and business video production. The AV Docking Station provides five additional output terminals: S-Video Out (4-pin), Video Out (RCA), Audio Out (RCAx2), Headphone Out and System (5-pin). The box plugs right into the AG-EZ30 via a 36-pin multi-connector.
