Sony XDCAM EX Full HD Memory Camcoders
The expanding family of Sony's XDCAM EX™ video products now includes two new camcorders that deliver new levels of creativity and flexibility for solid-state digital production. The products include Sony's first 2/3-inch CMOS memory camcorder, the shoulder-mount model PMW-350, and the PMW-EX1R, which adds DVCAM™ recording capability as well as numerous enhancements directly resulting from customer feedback. The full shoulder-mount PMW-350 camcorder has three 2/3-inch Exmor™ full HD 1920x1080 CMOS imagers, and a sensitivity of F12. It is studio-configurable, with timecode in/out, genlock in, and HD-SDI and HDMI out. The camcorder also features a DVCAM recording option. The PMW-EX1R, the successor to Sony's first entry into memory recording - the PMW-EX1 - adds DVCAM recording capability, as well as an HDMI output, a higher-resolution viewfinder, cache recording, and one-push auto iris. Like its new shoulder-mount counterpart, the PMW-EX1R features a range of ergonomic enhancements, including an improved hand grip for better balance, one-click S&Q mode and easy-to-access switches.
