High definition video, photo and sound recording for hobby film-makers
The AgfaPhoto DV-5580Z combines video, photo and sound recording in a convenient and lightweight body. The compact format and the adjustable swiveling display make the camera suitable for a broad range of tasks. Use it as a fun video camera for birthday parties or weddings, as a photo camera while on vacation, or as a voice recorder for interviews. This new member of the AgfaPhoto family is being distributed in North America through VistaQuest Corporation.
The AgfaPhoto DV-5580Z records video in high definition, with a maximum of 1440 x 1080 pixels and 30 frames per second. The energy-saving CMOS sensor with a resolution of 8 megapixels delivers high-resolution still images while preserving battery power. The 5x optical zoom lets you capture images from a greater distance as well. And when using the optional 4x digital zoom, you can get even closer to the subject. A digital image stabilizer reduces blurring. For shooting in low light conditions such as dark interiors, the camera is equipped with a video light. You can play back the captured images directly on your TV screen using the included TV cable. The images are played back on your PC or HD TV with a HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
With a weight of only 162 g (5.7 oz) and a size of just 12 cm x 6 cm (5″ x 2.5″), the AgfaPhoto camera fits into any handbag. It has a 2.5″ TFT LCD display and nine different programs: automatic, portrait, night, sports, landscape, sunrise, beach/snow, spotlight and manual.
You can take digital photos in JPEG format with a resolution of up to 8 megapixels (interpolated). The camera saves video recordings in MPEG4 format (H.264) on SD or SDHC memory cards with a capacity of up to 8 GB. The power is supplied by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a high energy density characteristic.
As of March, the AgfaPhoto DV-5580Z will be available for $249,95 (MSRP including VAT). Included in the package are: USB and AV cables for connection to a PC and TV, YPbPR video cable, lithium-ion rechargeable battery, battery charger, carrying bag, headphones and software CD.
