he Sony DSR-200 Digital Camcorder is being used around the world for a variety of professional video applications. A compact and lightweight body, coupled with the superior picture quality of digital signal processing DSP and the DVCAM format, make it an ideal acquisition tool. In order to meet increasing demands of the video professional, Sony is now introducing an enhanced version - DSR-200A Digital Camcorder. This camcorder incorporates many new features including a minimum illumination of 3 lx, 16:9/4:3 aspect ratio capability, OSD (On Screen Display) ON/OFF capability, Time/Date superimposition and many others. With these additional features, the DSR-200A is the ideal choice for various demands of video journalists, event videographers, stringers and production houses.
Superior Picture Quality
DSP Digital Signal Processing
The DSR-200A offers superior pictures by using 10-bit digital signal processing. DSP technology brings high stability and reliability. In addition, the digital signal is digitally transferred from the camera to the VTR without any signal degradation and minimal signal loss.
Long Recording and Operating hours
Standard size DVCAM cassettes should be used for recording with the DSR-200A. With the standard DVCAM cassette, it can record up to 184 minutes. With three Sony NP-F950 Battery Packs in the Sony NPA-10000/B Battery Holder, the unit typically achieves operation of up to 450 minutes (full charge)/ 405 minutes (normal charge) without zooming or power on/off operation, or 240 (full charge)/ 210 minutes (normal charge) with zooming and power on/off operation.
Front View Rear View
The DSR-200A incorporates three 1/3-inch CCDs which contribute to the high fidelity of the DSR-200As color reproduction and its compactness. Each CCD consists of 410,000 pixels (effective 380,000 pixels).
High Quality Audio Recording
The DSR-200A is capable of PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) digital recording of stereo sound both in 32 kHz mode (4-channel/12-bit non-linear) and in 48 kHz mode (2-channel/ 16-bit linear). In 32 kHz mode, the DSR-200A records audio on two channels during shooting, and another stereo channel can be added. If higher sound quality is required, equivalent to DAT, record in 48 kHz mode.
DVCAM Recording and Playback
The DSR-200A uses the DVCAM format to provide high video and audio quality and reliability for professional use. The 8-bit component digital recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and sampling at the rate of 4:1:1 provides superior picture quality and multi-generation performance.
The DSR-200A is capable of playing back standard size consumer DV format tapes. (SP mode only)

Time Code Capability (DF/NDF)
The DSR-200A has a time code capability which allows precise editing. DF (Drop Frame) or NDF (Non Drop Frame) can be selected according to the situation. DF synchronizes the time code with the field frequency of the NTSC signal and NDF counts the time by real time. With the TC RESET button, the time code can be reset to 00:00:00:00.
The DSR-200A incorporates a non-removable lens to enhance the operational convenience. Non-removable lens allows the following functions. * Optical Steady Shot Function The optical Steady Shot function of the DSR-200A compensates for camcorder movement by using an active prism mechanism. Unlike compensation by frame memories, the optical Steady Shot function compensates for movement without deterioration of image quality. * Auto/ Manual Focus Operation The DSR-200A offers automatic and manual control of focus, iris, gain, white balance and shutter speed. For instant shooting, automatic mode is very helpful. Automatic mode can be easily overridden by switching to manual mode.
i.LINK interface (IEEE 1394-based)
The DSR-200A incorporates an i.LINK (DV IN/OUT) connector based on the IEEE 1394 standard. When connected with another recorder/player via i.LINK interface. Video/audio and data can be digitally dubbed virtually without any deterioration of quality.
RMT-806 Remote Controller (Supplied)
Basic commands such as recording and playback can be made using the Sony RMT-806 Wireless Remote Controller supplied with the DSR-200A.
The DSR-200A is equipped with a LANC interface. By connecting a LANC-based recorder or editing system, simple editing is possible.
Enhanced Minimum Illumination
The DSR-200A can shoot pictures under extremely low light conditions as low as 3 lux. It allows event videographers when shooting weddings for instance to shoot clear pictures even under low light conditions as often found during church ceremonies and other dimly lit indoor events.
VCT-U14 Tripod Adaptor (Option)
With its V-wedge shoe, the DSR-200A can be instantly mounted on or detached from the optional Sony VCT-U14 Tripod Adaptor designed for professional use. With the VCT-U14, the DSR-200A can be securely attached to a tripod.
Photo mode XLR connector for professional microphones Stereo microphone
16:9 Aspect Ratio Capability
Although the DSR-200A incorporates a 4:3 image sensor, it is capable to capture 16:9 aspect ratio pictures by processing them digitally. It allows shooting of cinema-like 16:9 pictures, and displaying 16:9 images on monitors at full screen.
The optional NPA-10000/B holds three NP-F950 Battery Packs. Even during shooting, an exhausted battery pack can be exchanged without interrupting any functions, if the capacity of other batteries remains intact.
Time/date Superimposition on Video Out Pictures

Changing the lithium battery in the digital camcorder
Your digital camcorder is supplied with a lithium battery installed. When the battery becomes weak or dead, the I indicator flashes in the viewfinder for about 5 seconds when you set the digital camcorder to CAMCORDER mode with the POWER switch ON. In this case, replace the battery with a Sony CR2025 or Duracell DL-2025 lithium battery. Use of any other battery may present a risk of fire or explosion. The lithium battery for the digital camcorder lasts for about 1 year under normal operation. (The lithium battery that comes installed at the factory may not last 1 year.)
To save battery power
Turn STANDBY down to LOCK when not recording to save battery power. A smooth transition between scenes can be made even if recording is stopped and started again. While you are positioning the subject, selecting an angle, or looking through the viewfinder lens, the lens moves automatically and the battery is used. The battery is also used when a tape is inserted or removed.
When to replace the battery pack
While you are using your digital camcorder, the remaining battery indicator in the viewfinder decreases gradually as battery power is used up.
When the remaining battery indicator reaches the lowest point, the i indicator may appear and start flashing in the viewfinder. When the i indicator in the viewfinder changes from slow flashing to rapid flashing while you are recording, set the POWER switch to OFF on the digital camcorder and replace the battery pack. Leave the tape in the digital camcorder to obtain a smooth transition between scenes after the battery pack has been replaced.
Notes on the rechargeable battery pack
Never leave the battery pack in temperatures above 140F (60C), such as in a car parked in the sun or under direct sunlight.
The battery pack heats up
During charging or recording, the battery pack heats up. This is caused by energy that has been generated and a chemical change that has occurred inside the battery pack. This is not cause for concern and is normal.
Battery pack care
Remove the battery pack form the digital camcorder after using it, and keep it in a cool place. When the battery pack is installed to the digital camcorder, a small amount of current flows to the digital camcorder even if the POWER switch is set to OFF. This shortens battery life. The battery pack is always discharging even when it is not in use after charging. Therefore, you should charge the battery pack right before using the digital camcorder.
The switch on the battery pack
This switch is provided so that you can mark the charged battery pack. Set the switch to the green mark position when charging is completed. (When removed from the charging adaptor, the switch exposes the green mark. When removed from your digital camcorder, no mark is indicated.)
The life of the battery pack
If the battery indicator flashes rapidly just after turning on the digital camcorder with a fully charged battery pack, the battery pack should be replaced with a new fully charged one.
You should charge batteries at temperatures from 50F to 86F (from 10C to 30C). Lower temperatures require a longer charging time.
Digital camcorder care
When the digital camcorder is not to be used for a long time, disconnect the power source and remove the tape. Periodically turn on the power, operate the camera and player sections and play back a tape for about 3 minutes. Clean the lens with a soft brush to remove dust. If there are fingerprints on it, remove them with a soft cloth. Clean the digital camcorder body with a dry soft cloth, or a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent which may damage the finish.
AC power adaptor
Charging Use only a lithium ion type battery pack. Place the battery pack on a flat surface without vibration during charging. The battery pack will get hot during charging. This is normal. Others Unplug the unit from the wall outlet when not in use for a long time. To disconnect the power cord, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the power cord itself. Do not operate the unit with a damaged cord or if the unit has been dropped or damaged. Do not bend the power cord forcibly, or put a heavy object on it. This will damage the cord and may cause a fire or electrical shock. Be sure that nothing metallic comes into contact with the metal parts of the connecting plate. If this happens, a short may occur and the unit may be damaged. Always keep the metal contacts clean. Do not disassemble the unit. Do not apply mechanical shock or drop the unit. While the unit is in use, particularly during charging, keep it away from AM receivers and video equipment because it will disturb AM reception and video operation. The unit becomes warm while in use. This is normal. Do not place the unit in locations that are: - Extremely hot or cold - Dusty or dirty - Very humid - Vibrating If any difficulty should arise, unplug the unit and contact your nearest Sony dealer.
