And it gives you clear, stable images with minimal handshake, plus the responsive action you need to start shooting on a moment's notice. A full-sized microphone is set at the top of the camera, above the lens - an ideal position for capturing the sound from in front of the camera.The AG-DVC60 is fully equipped to meet your everyday production needs. It comes standard with terminals for connecting an optional stereo gun mic and XLR-type mic/input terminals for connecting either a hand mic or line recording.Add an optional Anton Bauer adapter plate, and you can mount any of several heavy-duty Anton Bauer batteries to the camera rear for extended shooting work. Or snap an Anton Bauer Ultra Light onto the shoe built into the top of the handle, and you have all the light you need for high-level shooting jobs.You can use the color LCD monitor and viewfinder at the same time. When using the viewfinder for shooting, you can face the LCD monitor forward, where someone in front of the camera can use it as a monitor when speaking or conducting an interview.
