More about the camera:

With three next-generation 9.2-million pixel HD-DPM+™ CCDs, the LDK 8000 is the only camera available that can capture true progressive HD images, natively, and switch instantly between multiple formats and frame rates. Coupled with an extensive feature set, format flexibility, and excellent performance, it’s a perfect match for the intense demands of today’s productions. This flexibility makes LDK 8000 a superb choice for live production where content will be used for HD DVD distribution. 

The LDK 8000 system features a compact, robust, and lightweight base station that can output SD and HD signals simultaneously. And by using a Grass Valley SuperXpander large lens adapter kit, complete with an HD high-resolution viewfinder, the LDK 8000 becomes a fully featured, full-sized studio camera ready for either studio or mobile applications

The LDK 8000 also features the on-sensor black sampling used so successfully in previous camera designs. With it, you don’t need to set a black balance or black level for each scene and then hope things turn out correctly. The selected on-sensor areas are masked from incoming light, and are therefore always sampling a correct absolute black level. The camera samples black levels continuously, per frame, ensuring that the black level is always correct as defined at the sensor surface. Its 14-bit analog-todigital converters preserve this sampled image as it is transferred from the sensors to the digital processing domain
