sony 170 video camera
The PD170 is a relatively small-but-solid brick of a camera, especially when compared to the Canon competition. The handgrip is behind the center of gravity, making the camera a bit front-heavy, especially if you use the included wide-angle adapter. Most common functions such as audio levels, white balance, shutter, iris and gain are assigned dedicated buttons on the camera body, preventing them from becoming lost on a menu. All are easily accessible and logically designed. The included remote control allows operation of all standard features without touching the camera. The camera shoots both DV and DVCAM, but the data is the same for both, so there is no image quality difference between the two.
