The DSR-PD177P is simply the best standard definition handheld camcorder ever produced by Sony. It uses the same chassis as the state-of-the-art HVR-Z5E HDV Camcorder introduced in 2008 with many of the same advanced features, including the all-new high performance Sony G-Lens which combines a ClearVid array and advanced Exmor image-processing technology for class leading picture quality and low light performance.

The weight distribution and control layout of this chassis has set new ergonomic standards for handheld operation, while operational flexibility is further enhanced by support for the HVR-MRC1K Compact Flash Solid State recorder. In every respect, the DSR-PD177P is a natural successor to the legendary DSR-PD170P Camcorder for customers who need the highest performance and latest technology but don`t currently have a requirement for High Definition.

DVCAM is the global standard for professional Standard Definition acquisition introduced by Sony as a higher performance, more reliable version of consumer DV while retaining full compatibility. Its advantages are further extended by a comprehensive product range, including Master Series VTRs tailored to broadcast requirements. Typical DVCAM applications range from wedding videography to corporate video and broadcast television. It is the ultimate ubiquitous digital broadcast and professional tape format.

Sony`s Exclusive High-performance G Lens

Discover the exceptional optical performance of Sony`s G Lens. This sophisticated lens incorporates Sony`s unique optical technology and unparalleled quality control. Moreover, it`s been optimised to perfectly complement the camcorder`s advanced image sensor and image-processing technology, thus expanding your shooting possibilities.

Major `G` Lens Features on the DSR-PD177P


  • The camcorder`s 29.5mm wide-angle, 20x optical zoom `G` Lens offers a field of view that`s ideal for many shooting situations, ranging from broad landscape shots to close-up shots where it is difficult to obtain sufficient distance from the subject.
  • Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements reduce the chromatic aberrations caused by differences in light refraction to minimise colour fringing. The advanced 10-group, 15-element lens structure also includes three compound aspheric lenses for images that are crisp and clear, even when shooting at a high zooming ratio.
  • Advanced optical lens technology enables Sony`s Exmor Sensor system realise sharper images with higher resolution and less noise, even when shooting in very low light.
  • The six-blade iris diaphragm is almost circular, which allows operators to incorporate creative background blur into their shots for beautiful visual effects.

Natural-touch Lens Operation

The ergonomic layout of the zoom, focus and iris control rings makes operation of these three functions possible with just one hand.

The zoom function can be controlled by any of the following:

  • The lens barrel ring
  • The lever at the lens grip
  • The lever on the camera handle
A high-speed zoom mode is also available. The digital extender system increases the zoom ratio to approximately 30x.

The iris control ring can be customised via the menu to:
  • Select and control the iris or the exposure
  • Open and close iris direction
The exposure function is ideal for varied shooting environments that range from very dark to very bright, allowing easy one-handed control using single-ring operation.

Sony`s Super SteadyShot system (optical) helps you achieve a stable picture, even when camera handling is unsteady.

Three built-in ND (Neutral Density) filters - 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 - help to vary the depth of field with iris control.

Cutting-edge Imaging System With Exmor Technology

The DSR-PD177P boasts cutting-edge features including unique Exmor technology which maximises the potential of the camcorder`s imaging system. This includes the same column-parallel A/D conversion and dual noise-cancelling method used in Sony`s top-of-the-line camera models. Multiple A/D (analogue to digital) converters on each pixel row convert analogue signals to digital as soon as they are generated, unlike traditional technology that only has one A/D converter on each chip.

Exmor technology helps eliminate the influence of external noise, which can often enter the signal chain during transfer to the A/D converter. As a result, you get high-quality digital signals with extremely low noise.

By adopting this groundbreaking technology, the Exmor Sensor system enables the DSR-PD177P to achieve a low light sensitivity of just 1.5 lux (At 1/25 shutter, auto iris and auto gain).

Progressive Scan Mode

The DSR-PD177P provides SD-quality 25p footage. The 25p image captured by the sensor system is recorded as an interlaced signal by dividing each frame into two fields. This enables compatibility with current editing and monitoring equipment that only accept interlaced signals, while maintaining the quality of the 25p image.

Progressive scan mode is suitable for feature films, documentaries and music videos, where the content is required to have the filmic look.
