The AG-DVC7 comes standard with an IEEE-1394 digital interface terminal for the transfer of digital video into Mac- and Windows-based nonlinear editing systems. Weighing 4.62 lbs., the AG-DVC7 offers a wealth of easy-to-use manual functions, including manual focus and new picture effects. It also features a "Cinema" mode that enables widescreen-format (16:9 letterbox) recording. Panasonic, (800) 528-8601, www.panasonic.com/achieve.
