CCD-IRIS
(Continued)
Function
For example, this function is useful for microscope
applications. When shooting with a microscope not
equipped with the auto-iris lens, the luminance level
that is just right for the human eye is often too bright
for the video camera.
When CCD-IRIS is selected, the electronic shutter
automatically decreases excessive incident light to
an appropriate level for the video camera. This
function is also useful for cutting out excessive
incident light that is not cut out by the auto-iris lens
in scenes containing very bright patches (such as
snow, or sea water reflecting sunlight).
You can select the highest limit value of the variable
range of the shutter speed. Select LIMIT, then set
the speed to 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000, 1/2000, 1/4000,
1/10000, 1/20000,1/40000 or 1/100000.
 Note
You cannot use CCD-IRIS mode when using a lens
that automatically adjusts the iris control according
to the video signal input.

You can set the shutter speed in units of 1H
(horizontal scanning time: 63.56 
µ
s for DXC-390,
64.00 
µ
s for DXC-390P).
Select SPEED, then select the value from 1/525H to
262/525H (DXC-390) or 1/625H to 312/625H (DXC-
390P). This mode can be used for shooting
computer displays with reduced horizontal bands
appearing across the display screen.
To set the shutter speed
Display OFF by pressing the 
B
 and 
b
 buttons
simultaneously.
Select the SPEED value by pressing the 
b
 button
while observing the noise on the monitor screen
so that you can obtain the image with minimum
noise. Each time you press the button, the value
changes in units of 1H.

Automatically adjusts the luminance level for
optimum output level. When incoming light is
excessive, this function automatically adjusts the
