Professional specifications

3-CCD camera for high-quality picture

To ensure the best possible image quality, the GY-DV5100 incorporates three 1/2" 410,000* (NTSC)/470,000** (PAL)

pixel CCDs. Each CCD is equipped with highly advanced circuitry that virtually eliminates vertical background. Lag and image burn are also reduced to indiscernible levels. *380,000 effective **440,000 effective


F13 at 2000 lx

The ultra-sensitive camera (F13 at 2000 lx) assures effortless shooting in extreme low light situations. This powerful feature increases creative flexibility and simplifies lighting requirements. The camera head has extra-high effective resolution of 800 TVL.


Newly-developed 12-bit ADC* and 24-bit DSP**

With an all-in-one DSP that incorporates a new12-bit ADC and a 24- bit DSP, signals converted by the ADC go straight to the DSP, eliminating any signal degradation that might otherwise be generated by analog circuits. In addition, this new DSP features advanced video processing that brings out all the natural details, increases clarity, eliminates noise, and provides rich, accurate color reproduction previously found only in the most expensive field production cameras.

*ADC: Analog Digital Converter **DSP: Digital Signal Processor


Detail center boost frequency select (Low/Mid/High)

Edge signal thickness can be selected from three levels depending on your application and requirements.


16:9 squeeze recording

Now you can shoot in either 16:9 or 4:3 format at the touch of a button. 4:3 pictures are converted electronically to 16:9, eliminating

the need for an anamorphic lens.


Wide dynamic range of 400% or more

The GY-DV5100's super fast multi-stream parallel processing DSP creates an ultra-smooth gamma curve calculated using a true log scale algorithm. The result is a dynamic range of over 400% that accurately reproduces fine details and colors in both shadowed and highlighted areas.

Normal Wide dynamic range


1/2" bayonet lens mount

The GY-DV5100 uses a standard professional 1/2" bayonet lens mount, making it compatible with the widest selection of broadcast and

professional lenses. No adapters, no hidden costs. Just a smart way to tap the rich infrastructure of interchangeable professional lenses.


Professional functions

Full Auto Shooting

In an emergency, or when it's not possible to pause to adjust white balance or change the gain, the Full Auto Shooting mode provides point-and-shoot ease of operation, leaving you simply to zoom, focus, and press the record button. Activating Full Auto Shooting puts the camera in the Auto Iris mode, even if the lens is set to manual. Automatic Video Level Control (ALC) is also activated, along with Extended Electronic Iris (EEI) which provides both variable gain and variable shutter and Full Auto White to follow color temperature. This means you can shoot continuously from dark to bright, from indoors to outdoors, without changing gain, iris, white balance or ND filter.


Color matrix

A sophisticated six-axis color matrix circuit effectively compensates optics-related color reproduction to ensure more natural, true-to-life tones. Five color matrix presets (Standard/Warm/Extra1/Extra2/Extra3) are provided to give you more creative control over the look and feel of your images.


Tri-mode 2.5-inch LCD display

The 200,000-pixel 2.5" color TFT LCD monitor provides a high-resolution 440 TVL image during shooting or playback. Its peaking adjust function allows quick, effortless focusing. A push button selects three display modes:

1. Video only

2. Video images with text information overlay including time, status, mode, and other data are shown on the screen.

3. Data information only including time, status, mode, and other data are shown on the screen (see example in paragraph below).


Functions and switch layout for "real" professionals

In addition to the Full Auto Shooting to handle difficult or variable lighting environments, the GY-DV5100 is equipped with an array of pro-level functions that provide professionals with the creative flexibility they need. These include soft detail correction, Skin Tone Detection, fully adjustable gamma, Iris over/under Black Stretch/Compress, Frame Mode, etc. The GY-DV5100's switches

have also been arranged in the way that most professionals are accustomed to, making operation more intuitive, precise, easy, and error-free. Since you won't have to "re-learn" how to use this camcorder all over again, the GY-DV5100 is the ideal camera for any assignment.


LOLUX 0.2 lx (F1.4)

When activated, the LOLUX mode increases sensitivity with almost no increase in noise. LOLUX increases the gain by +36 dB so you can capture high-quality video footage with excellent color balance, enhanced gradations, and minimal color smear in low-light conditions.


Various audio-related functions

When color bars are output, audio reference level (test tone) is also output. The audio reference level can be set to -12 dB or -20 dB as required. In addition, a "wind cut" function is provided to minimize extraneous noise picked up by the microphone.


Versatile, user-friendly design

DV select switch for the DR-DV5000

This convenient switch allows you to quickly connect or disconnect a DRDV5000 removable hard disk drive without having to use a DV cable.


Digital battery remaining time display with the provided Anton Bauer adapter (NTSC only)

A real lifesaver when you’re out in the field, this function takes advantage of digital communication between the Anton Bauer battery and the GY-DV5100 to show available battery time in the viewfinder.


Optional 1.5-inch CRT black & white viewfinder

The viewfinder can be moved forwards or backwards and can be adjusted for left or right eye shooting, so it is comfortable for any

shooter. Peaking is optimized to make focusing easy at all times.


On-shoulder type with soft shoulder pad

For smooth, stable shooting, the GYDV5100 has been designed for onshoulder shooting and comes with an advanced soft shoulder pad that will not slip regardless of clothing being worn.


Scan mode

It is possible to select between video or "Hi Rez Frame Mode" for a more cinematographic effect.
