The same digital single lens still camera technology that&s gathering widespread attention for its innovative motion image techniques, has been applied to this camera recorder. The 4/3 type MOS image sensor, with an imaging area similar to that of 35 mm movies, lets you easily shoot film-like movies with the shallow depth of field and soft focus of a film camera lens.
A wide variety of lenses for Micro Four Thirds standard digital SLR cameras can be u sed for shooting movies. With the mount adaptor, it is also possible to mount 35mm film camera lenses and prime lenses, to render images that maximize lens characteristics.
