Additional Features

The Optura 300 has a number of additional features for ease of use and creative control.


Photo Search
This feature allows you to search for images recorded in Photo Mode. Search forwards or backwards through the images one at a time, or +/-10 from the current position.


Time Code
The Optura 300 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 is valuable when editing on a personal computer or professional video editing system.


Data Code
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 Optura 300 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.


Zoom Playback
Want to take a closer look at your image? The Optura 300 allows you to zoom up to 5X during tape or card playback.


Remote Control
The full-function wireless remote control of the Optura 300 will work at distances up to 16 feet (4.9 m). The remote can start and stop recordings, zoom the lens, handle all playback (VCR) functions, handle audio and video dubbing functions, and more.
