V1U vs FX7

http://www.sundancemediagroup.com/ar...comparison.htm has a complete list of feature/tool differences between the two camcorders as best as I'm aware. If any other differences crop up, I'll add those.

Knee Point?

Hi,

I noticed in the spec comparisons the feature "knee point". What is that?

Thanks,

Chris

Yes but don't forget that there are also many things that both cameras comply. The table shows most of the manual settings that are not present with FX7 nothing is shown about the quality of the picture. Best thing for you is to see one in action.

For a many years, camera designers have tried to improve the rendition of strong image contrast by using knee techniques to compress highlight information into the standard "1 Volt" video signal. Conventional cameras only have single knee point/slope characteristics. In contrast, broadcast DSP cameras have multiple knee point/slope characteristics. The principle is that camera intelligently monitors the brightness of all areas of the picture and adopts the knee point/slope for optimum reproduction. A typical example is an interior scene which includes a sunlit exterior seen through a window. This function applies only to video levels in excess of the knee point, the middle
and low luminance parts remaining unchanged.
