Editors' Picks - Panasonic Mini-DV Camcorder

Panasonic's professional AG-DVC7 full-size Mini-DV camcorder ($1,295) features a shoulder-mount body style that yields steadier images, delivers a more professional-looking appearance and enhances product security compared to consumer-based palm-sized models. It is equipped with a next-generation Interline Transfer (IT) CCD imager and a large-diameter 15X optical zoom, which offers high picture quality and a minimum illumination of 1 lux. 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.
