New product

Semi-shoulder handheld camcorder integrates with multi-camera operations

The PMW-300K2 XDCAM camcorder is equipped with three 1/2-inch Exmor™ full-HD CMOS sensors, capable of delivering high-quality images even in low-light environments. Ample support for interchangeable lens and a robust metal body further ensure that PMW-300K2 is suitable for a wide range of applications. Additionally, the PMW-300K2 offers a convenient remote-control and multi-camera operation capability, which allows use with high-end camera systems.

  • XAVC 10-bit HD 422 and MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps recordings ideal for a wide range of shooting conditions

    An evolution of Sony’s industry leading PMW-EX3, the PMW-300K is able to record XAVC 10-bit HD422 recordings, including XAVC Intra frame 10-bit HD 422 100 Mbps and XAVC Long GOP 10-bit HD 422 (low bit rate). It also records 50Mbps HD material in MPEG-2 HD422, meeting broadcast standards around the world, including the European Broadcasting Union’s (EBU) requirements on HD broadcast acquisition for long form programme making. Standard Definition recording includes DVCAM format and MPEG IMX SD up to 50Mbps. MPEG IMX format offers exceptional visual quality for SD recording that is comparable to Digital Betacam broadcast standard. The high bit rate ensures excellent capture of fast moving objects, while its chroma subsampling feature is perfect for a wide range of video encoding areas such as VFX and green screen applications. The camcorder can also support Sony’s revolutionary XAVC codec, extending the lifecycle of the product to ensure maximum return on investment.
