This camcorder is fitted with a new 1/3inch interchangeable lens system allowing customers either to use the supplied Carl Zeiss lens or use a whole range of other lenses available on the market.
* This is the first compact camcorder to offer interchangeable lens options.

1/3inch ClearVid CMOS Processor
Newly developed 1/3inch x 3 ClearVid CMOS processor offers high resolution, high sensitivity, wide dynamic range and excellent colour reproduction.
* Offers greater resolution than existing pixel-shift technologies regardless of the balance between colour elements.
* Offers great low-light capabilities especially important for camera operators who cannot control their ambient lighting., e.g. wedding videographers.
* Lower power consumption than traditional CCD's.
* 'Exmor' technology employed in the the new CMOS processor reduces noise in the A/D process.

Selectable 25p Progressive Modes
The HVR-Z7E offers the ability to choose between a 25p scanning mode (sames as HVR-V1E) but also a 25p 'native' recording mode. In this native recording mode the picture is both scanned and recorded as a progressive image.
* Further improves the progressive reproduction by both scanning and recording progressively.
* Provides further flexibility of use. e.g. The camera can be used for a variety of applications from budget-movie making in 25p mode to standard interlace TV productions.
* Offers camera operators the use of the progressive 'filmic look', coupled with gamma curve correction makes the camera ideal for movie production.
