The AXII DSP in the HDK-99 incorporates a 3D color matrix enables precise color adjustment. The 16 axes of the color gamut can be fine-tuned in both hue and saturation. The camera has Lens Aberration Correction function and the Quick EZ Focus Assist Function provides enhancement to the viewfinder signal for critical focus adjustments.

The HDK-99 can be outfitted with several available adapters and CCU’s, base stations, and control panels.
