The CHE camcorder models offer the excellent ergonomics and handling that our customers have come to expect, with the additional flexibility of being able to use your existing 1/3″ lenses. At the heart of the camcorders are three 1/3″ 2.07 effective-megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. There’s 12-bit processing via the on-board FALCONBRID™ high-speed engine, an excellent sensitivity of F12 (50Hz) and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio, providing superior precision and colour reproduction with minimal aberration.
The GY-HM850/890CHE camcorders are equipped with the H.264 Extreme-High Quality (XHQ) 50Mbps (MOV) recording mode. MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 offers approximately twice the compression efficiency of conventional codecs and offers superior motion prediction for a smooth and detailed picture with virtually no block noise even when recording rapid action sequences. Added to this, the 50Mbps bit rate is high enough to support full 1920 x 1080 encoding in 50p or 50i, resulting in stunningly detailed HD images.
