I am the one and only original owner of two (2) Panasonic D410-P broadcast quality DVC Pro cameras for sale. I love the DVC format and it is easy to use. I bought them for The Fishing Line TV show I have been hosting for17 years...I got these direct from Panasonic around 2003. One was used no more than 12 to 13 times per year as I filmed 12 to 13 episodes per season sometimes even less. The other used only a couple of times per year when we did two cam shoots...which was not often at all. Both have VERY low hours on them the second cam almost no hours.. Neither was used in 2007 or 2008 when I had surgery.
They were never loaned out and always stored in my smoke free home and very well taken care of. A few scratches but no dents or damage to either at all. Am ready to upgrade my equipment and retire to SC anyway so I am looking to move at sweetheart deals and quickly. I am not parting them out or selling bags separately but will sell cams separately or in packages with whatever batteries you need. Not looking to sell the lens separately either unless needed to...and will sell lens by themselves too...but really looking to put together packages of camera, bag, lens, batteries & charger if at all possible. Thanks and not sure if allowed but here is my direct number. 516-889-6895 in NY area so please don't call after 9 p.m.

The AJ-D410A was the new level DVCPRO camcorder, replacing the AJ-D215 and AJ-D400. It features three1/2" CCDs, with 410,000 pixels each. The camera optical block, DSPsection, and chassis are basically identical to the AG-DVC200 DV camcorder,with the exception of the paint job, which is solid black. It has a standard bayonet lens mount lenses, which gives you a range of broadcast quality glass to choose from. It is the only standard DVCPRO camcorder to use full-sized DVCPRO cassettes, allowing record times up to 184 minutes on a single tape.
The camera's DSP section is highly adjustable - much more so than the JVCGY-DV500, and features more user configurable presets than the Sony DSR-300A.There are six presets, which are easily customized to the operators preferences, including a factory "STD" look, which tries to imitate the look of the popular Sony BVW-D600, "FLOU," which attempts to compensate for shooting under fluorescent light, "SPARKLING" which adds more detail, and brightens colors, "COOL" which gives the picture a cooler, softer look, and "RETRO" which gives the scene a reddish, old-time look which works really well for enhancing the look of sunsets. All of these can be modified and renamed, and later set back to factory settings. Of all of the scene file presets, I've found that most of my customers like the look of "SPARKLING." If you are going for more of a film look, start with the "STD" setting, reduce color saturation and detailen hancement, and tweak the black level until you get the look you want.
Some of the adjustable items include horizontal and vertical detail, detail coring, horizontal detail frequency, master pedestal, manual knee and knee point. Like most cameras in this range, it does feature a "full auto" mode, which is best used for "run and gun" shooting, where there is no time to properly white balance or manually control exposure and gain. I don't recommend using this mode for serious production use on this camera, or any other. That being said, it does do a decent job in a pinch.
Out of the box, the factory defaults provide a picture that is softer than other 1/2" cameras, like the GY-DV500. If you prefer more detail, there are a number of settings that can be used to precisely dial-in the look you need. One of the less well known features this camera has is the time-lapse recording mode, or "Interval Recording" as Panasonic refers to it. The camera can be set to record at programmed intervals from 10 seconds to 24 hours. The duration of recording at the intervals can be set from 5 seconds to 1 hour. This can come in handy if you are recording something like a house being built, or certain kinds of nature photography.
I opted for the VF-15 high-end 1.5" viewfinder, as it is the sharpest and most rugged of the three viewfinder options. It can be adjusted forward/backward, as well as side-to-side. It is locked into place with a small ever on the top of the mount, which has a very positive, solid feel, just like the the rest of the camera. The viewfinder controls including Tally (High, Off,Low), Zebras (on/off), Brightness, Contrast, and Peaking. While it cost quite a bit more than the VF-5 entry-level viewfinder, and a few hundred more than the mid-range VF-10, the quality was well worth it. If you are going to spend$6,500 on a camera body, I don't think it is unreasonable to speed an additional $1000 on the best viewfinder you can get. It is critical in determining focus and exposure - not something you want to scrimp on.
The shoulder pad is quite comfortable, and is adjustable on the front/rear axis. Weighing in at about 18-20 lbs with lens and an Anton Bauer ProPak brick, I found it quite comfortable. The complete package is just heavy enough to aid in smooth shoulder shooting, but not obnoxious like an old BetaSP dockable rig that will put you in physical therapy after a few weeks. Some people try to find the lightest battery bricks for their cameras. Personally, I have found that heavier bricks balance the camera out better, both on the shoulder, and on the tripod. A good quality lens is going to be a big part of the cameras overall weight, and all of it is forward of the center of mass. I'd much rather have a well-balanced camera on my shoulder for the day, than a front-heavy camera that weights a few pounds less. Try it, your forearms and shoulder will thank you for it.
The audio section is quite good. It features three XLR connections (1 front for the on-camera mic, and 2 rear, with selectable LINE/MIC levels and phantom power). Headphone monitor jack allows monitoring of Ch.1 in the left ear, andCh.2 in the right ear. An onboard wireless receiver slot is provided between the carrying handle, and the Anton Bauer mount. Using these onboard slot type receivers means it interfaces directly with the camera, without the need to have a separate XLR audio connection, and 12V DC power connection. It runs off the cameras current power source. In the Audio menu, the recording channels can be set to record from either the XLR inputs, or the onboard wireless unit, if installed. We also spent $1,000 on the upgrade to the best shotgun mic's too for each camera!
Speaking of inputs and outputs, this camera has quite a few. Connections on the rear include 12 V DC input (4-XLR), Headphones (mini-phone jack), Ch.1 & 2audio in (3-XLR), 12V DC @ 1 Amp (Hirose connector for outboard wireless unit),and a Video Out port (BNC), which can be set to display all viewfinder information, including zebras, exposure, TC, warnings, menus, and safe area markers. On the side of the camera, there are Ch.1 and Ch.2 audio out (RCA), Genlock in (BNC),Camera/Genlock out (BNC), TC in (BNC) and TC out (BNC), S-Video out (mini DIN),and an ECU interface. The ECU interface allows a Panasonic AJ-EC3 camera control unit to be attached. This is very useful in a multi-camera shoot, allowing the camera to be "painted" or "chipped" to match other cameras. A wide range of camera features and functions can be remotely controlled.
One interface this camera is missing is IEEE-1394 Firewire. Panasonic falt that the typical user of a camera at this level will have a Firewire-equipped VTR in the studio, and not have much need for it on the camera. I thought I might miss this feature (my GY-DV500 had it), but I haven't needed it yet.
One of the key attractions of this camera is the DVCPRO format. While DVCPRO is based on the DV25 codec standard, used by both consumer DV and DVCAM, it has some enhancements. Using Metal Particle tape (like Digital Betacam, D-2, D-5,D-9, etc.) and a track width 80% wider than consumer DV, it is far more resistant to dropouts and oxidation than either DV or DVCAM. This is key in the ENG market, nature or extreme sports photography where the camera is likely to be exposed to dust, moisture, and widely varying temperatures. The DVCPRO format has proven itself as a worthy replacement to analog Betacam SP in over50% of the television stations in North America. Since I have the need for a highly reliable, archival quality tape format that doesn't cost as much as a small Mercedes (Digital Betacam, anyone?), DVCPRO is a good fit.
The DVCPRO VTR mechanism is very responsive, going from pause to record in 1second. The mechanism also features a field emergency tape eject system. Below the tape door is an access hole covered by a rubber flap. In the event of severe camera damage or power failure, a phillips screwdriver can be used to manually move the mechanism through the eject cycle, without disassembling the camera. It the current crop of DV and DVCAM systems, you would have to disassemble the camera to get the tape out.
The manual supplied with the camera is typical of professional camera manuals. It tells you what the switches and menu selections are, but if you don't know what Pedestal is, or the difference between 90% Knee and 100% Knee, you'll need to do a little research. This manual, like the camera, is intended for those who have experience with professional cameras. It makes no attempt to explain the underlying technology. If you are moving up from consumer/prosumer cameras, this may be an issue for you. If you have experience with Sony, JVC, or the Panasonic professional cameras, you'll find the control layout and options fairly easy to learn.
Overall, I love this camera. It is very solid, rugged, and the picture quality is excellent and fantastic both outdoors and indoors!. The range of control over the look of the camera for different applications is most welcome in a camera in this price range. If you already have a DVCPRO workflow, or are looking at moving to DVCPRO on a relatively modest budget, this is your camera
