Product Description
The PMW-400 series is an SxS memory shoulder-mount camcorder which can record our high quality 50Mbps MPEG-2 HD422 video as MXF files on SxS memory cards. It is equipped with the cutting edge imaging technology of three 2/3 inch-type Exmor™ full HD CMOS sensors. These sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V), give the camcorder an excellent resolution, dynamic range and color reproduction capabilities. Additionally, the large 2/3 inch–type sensors can capture images with a shallower depth of field, giving users more freedom of creative expression. The PMW-400 series is studio-configurable, with timecode IN/OUT, GENLOCK IN, HD/SD-SDI and HDMI out, and also features a DVCAM recording option. It also features a 3DNR (Three Dimensional Noise Reduction) technology delivering a cleaner signal for a better Signal-to-Noise ratio and in addition, Flash- Band Compensation will be a standard feature of the camera (requires firmware update in late 2013). The PMW-400 series is planned to be upgradable for the XAVC HD in 2014, and hardware options for the Digital Triax & Optical Fiber transmissions are available today. Designed to be compact and ergonomically well-balanced, the PMW-400 series provides a high level of mobility and comfort in a wide variety of shooting situations. The PMW-400L model comes without a lens and is equipped with a standard 2/3-inch bayonet lens mount. Users can choose from a wide variety of optional lenses in the existing 2/3-inch HD lens lineup. The full Sony XDCAM EX line-up provides stunning HD picture quality and efficient nonlinear operation, expanding the creative possibilities in every type of HD video production.
