  • Sony 12x Wide-angle G Lens
  • Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters
  • Ergonomic Handle & Controls
  • Memory card NOT included
  • Highly-sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor and built-in LED light:
  • The HXR-MC2500 is capable of shooting clearly even in low-light or indoor environments
  • Its highly-sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor adopts a back-illuminated technology that enables the image sensor to utilize incidental light more efficiently, helping the videographer to achieve rich image quality even during low-light shooting situationsMoreover, the HXR-MC2500 is also equipped with a convenient built-in LED light for valuable extra illumination when needed
  • Wide-angle G Lens:
  • HXR-MC2500 comes equipped with a sophisticated G Lens that incorporates Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control
  • HXR-MC2500 itself is optimized to perfectly complement the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony's famous image processing technology
  • This improves picture performance whether zooming in on the action, or getting a perspective on the big picture with a 26.8mm* lens offering the widest angles in this class of camera, which enables wide-angle shooting even in tight spaces (*35mm or equivalent)
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode:
  • This feature ensures smooth movement while recording footage in many challenging shooting situations
  • In addition, Sony's innovative 3-Way Shake-Cancelling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture
  • This latest version of image stabilisation technology realizes images that are up to 10x steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images
  • As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabilizer starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake
  • This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that commonly occurs when shooting while walking
  • Wide angle view, high contrast OLED viewfinder and 3-inch wide LCD panel:
  • The HXR-MC2500 is equipped with an OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, offering a high resolution of approximately 1.44 million dots with high contrast levels
  • Sony's proprietary viewfinder technologies allow for better tonal reproduction and more detailed picture information when shooting
  • In addition, there is also the built-in 3-inch wide high resolution LCD panel (approximately 0.92 million dots) for crisp and bright views
  • Wi-Fi/NFC functions for seamless connection to smartphones:
  • HXR-MC2500 can connect to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets via a Wi-Fi connection, enabling monitoring and remote control functions such as start/stop recording, zoom control, iris control and touch auto focus
  • Furthermore, it is also NFC-capable (Near Field Communications) to allow easy, one-touch wireless connections to compatible mobile devices
  • Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe:
  • The MI Shoe expands your options to use accessories without cables, such as the UWP-D11 wireless microphone receiver and XLR audio input by XLR adapter
  • Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters:
  • Using the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority
  • Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background
  • Shutter-speed can also be controlled to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight etc.
  • Ideal for long event shooting with 32GB internal flash memory and low power consumption:
  • A 32GB internal flash memory enables longer duration recording of more than 150 minutes
  • In addition, by using a combination of the internal flash memory and memory card in the MS/SD slot, recording functions such as "Relay" and "Simultaneous" for backup can be available
  • When Sony's L-Series InfoLithium battery NP-F970 (optional) is used, the HXR-MC2500 is capable of continuous long recording of up to 14 hours. This is a critical feature for important occasions where operators may not have the luxury to stop the camera, such as during the filming of wedding ceremonies or other live events
  • Ergonomic Handle & Controls:
  • The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting
  • There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle, which allow for the attachment of two different types of accessories
  • AVCHD ? Ideal for Memory Recording:
  • AVCHD is a highly efficient data compression format which greatly reduces memory requirements, maximizing the benefits of file-based recording with high image quality in a small file size
  • This is made possible by the exceptionally efficient MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec at 50p@28mbps
  • Many consumer electronic devices already support AVCHD playback, and more are on the way
  • Numerous major NLE software programs feature AVCHD input and editing
  • The HXR-MC2500's Standard Definition recording format is in DV memory format
  • Additional professional features:
  • A BNC Composite Terminal enables use of BNC cables for a professional secure connection, which prevents cable disconnect during critical shooting occasions such as live recording
  • TC/UB Implementation: Time Code and User Bit are included for situations like multi-camera shoots
