Dynamic Range Stretching
Further improving the auto knee feature, the DRS feature takes into account the average highlight brightness and shadow areas and self-adjusts the aperture and makes use of knee control to cancel blown highlights in shadow spots.
In takes where dark and light areas are mixed (E.g., moving from outdoors to indoors), DRS automatically sets an extensive dynamic range with limited blown highlights and/or blocked shadows without having to adjust the camera for each lighting condition.
14-bit Conversion System
As an upgrade from the standard 12-bit system, Panasonic came up with the AJ-HDX900 using a 14-bit digital conversion.
A new, high-performance DSP circuit has been integrated into the camcorder, allowing detailed color adjustments in exact colour regions. The “Skin Detail” function provides superior image fine tuning.
Digital Super Gain
A handy, pushbutton feature, this super gain feature allows gain up to +36 dB max and with an extra +20 dB gain when in cumulative mode.
Virtually noise-free, digital super gain is capable of preserving image quality far better than the conventional gain adjustment.
