The Elura 50 has a number of additional features for ease of use and creative control.
The tally lamp is a flashing red light on the front of the camera. The tally lamp activates when the camera is recording, letting your subject know that the camera is recording. The tally lamp also tells you when the camera is in range of the remote control and is responding to the remote.
This searches for images recorded in Photo Mode. You can search forwards or backwards through the images one at a time, or +/-10 from the current position.
The Elura 50 records a time code signal along with the video signal. This time code accurately identifies every point on the DV tape by hour, minute, second and frame. This will prove immensely beneficial if you are editing your footage on your personal computer or a professional video editing system.
The DV standard calls for the automatic recording of date and time, shutter speed, exposure settings and other key camera data on the tape as you shoot. The Elura 50 does not permanently superimpose this data over your video. Instead, the data remains hidden until you select it for display during playback or editing. You can turn the display on or off at will and you can decide which data you want to display.
The full-function wireless remote control of the Elura 50 will work at distances up to 16 feet (4.9m). The remote can start and stop recordings, zoom the lens, handle all playback (VCR) functions, handle audio and video dubbing functions, and more.
The LANC terminal on the Elura 50 permits easy connection of compatible edit controllers.
