Product information "PANASONIC AG-DVC200 E DV professional Video camera AJ-VF10 Canon YH18x6.7"


"This is the first DV formate integrated camera VCR, that supports standard cassettes. It combines the digital camera technology fostered by Broadcast equipment with the dependability of the DVCPRO mechanism. It has a compact size, light weight and low-power consumption.

Both its camera unit and VTR unit incorporate digital signal processing to achieve even greater improvements in picture quality and stability."

So far the introduction from the instructions booklet.

Fully professional somewhat older videocamera by Panasonic, with finder and lens.

Camera was bought new by a purely private amateur elder gentleman.

Hard to believe a professional broadcasting item like this beeing bought by an amateur, but he loved filming all his life...

Anton Bauer battery connector, so compatible for instance to Swit 8080 and others.
1/2 inch IT CCD, RGB 3-CCD system.

Camera takes DV standard cassettes (not DVCPRO cassettes or other).

According to the very little use it got from the elder gentleman, the camera and accessories are in only little used cosmetically top condition. BUT: The partial RUBBER coverages on body and lens are deteriorating due to age; so are STICKY and partly smearing.

Weight (only camera, without finder or lens or battery) about 3100 grams. So what the instructions says about "compact" and light weight" is RELATIVE, in a professional broadcasting camera, of course.

Included here is the professional viewfinder Panasonic AJ-VF10E, as well as professional Canon BCTV broadcasting zoom lens 18x optical zoom, model YH18x6.7 F1,4 6,7-212mm, with original lens shade and cap.

We could make a short test with a SWIT Li-Ion battery (NOT included here): Camera on/off, zoom, finder goes on.
Further or fully detailed tests we did NOT do with the camera.
So sale AS IS, means NO guarantee and NO returns accepted !!!

Here an ebay link for matching cassettes (other links we are not allowed to show, also 180 minute cassettes were produced):


An here a link, where the shown charger and battery would fit (many more different brands available):


The PANASONIC AG-DVC200 is the world's first camcorder that is designed to use the large DV casettes which allows you to record 180 minutes of broadcast quality recording on a single tape. Large DVD casettes allow up to 180 minutes of broadcast quality recording on a single tape. The AG-DVC200 uses three 1/2" IT CCD's providing a superior picture quality. Using the IEEE-1394I/O connection gives this camcorder the ability to transfer Digital BroadcastQuality video and audio signals directly into either an NLE system or a homecomputer equipped with a IEEE-1394.

The DV format uses 8-bit component digital recording at 25 Mbps, with Intra-frame 5:1 compression and 4:1:1 color sampling. A 10 micron track pitch provides superior picture quality, superb multi-generation capability and production flexibility. Two 1/4" ME cassette sizes are available: Standard and Mini. The Standard size cassette will hold up to 124 minutes of information while the Mini cassette will hold up to 60 minutes of information.

Up to 123 minutes of continuous recording time can be abtained with a Panasonic AY-DV123EB cassette, or 180 minutes with a Sony DV-180MEM cassette.

Three 1/2" IT (Interline Transfer) CCD's with 410,000 pixels, are incorporated into the camera's head. The CCD's along with the camcorders digital signal processing, allow the AG-DVC200 to shoot F11@2000 lux, with very low smear. An outstanding 800 Lines of horizontal resolution is processed in the camera head.

An IEEE-1394 (Firewire) 4-pin connection allows Digital Video and Audio signal transfer between the camcorder and an other IEEE-1394 equiped device; such as a NLE system. Digital information can be transferred between devices without loss.

The AG-DVC200 camera head inherits the same broadcast specifications as Panasonics DVCPRO broadcast format cameras.

Synchro Scan function allows flicker-free shooting of computer monitors. Computer monitors have different scan rates which would normally appear as flicker. Synchro Scan enables electronic shutter speeds to be variably set to match the computer monitors frequency in increments from 1/61.9 to 1/253.7 of a second.

Color Playback in the field is possible without the need of a combersome playback adaptor. An analog Composite or Y/C output can be connected directly to a color field monitor to display a color playback image directly from the camcorder.
