Sony has expanded its XDCAM HD422 line-up with the release of the PMW- 200, the only handheld camcorder in its class equipped with three 1/2-inch Exmor CMOS sensors and enables full HD 4:2:2 50Mbps recording.
Sony’s PMW-200 range of handheld camcorders inherits the versatility of the PMW-EX1R, which has been a worthy shooting companion for a whole range of different productions. The 1/2-inch type sensors allow the camcorder to perform exceptionally well even in challenging lighting conditions. Even in a tiny form-factor, the PMW-200 provides a wider angle of view to fit more into one frame. Designed using Sony’s advanced sensor technologies, the PMW-200 answers the industry’s desire for a 4:2:2 50Mbps camera that utilises three 1/2-inch type sensors. The PMW-200 delivers outstanding full-HD resolution quality while providing a wider angle of view and excellent sensitivity that captures greater details in both low light and bright environments. In addition, the camcorder enables a variety of recording formats such as MXF 50Mbps/35Mbps, MP4 35Mbps/25Mbps and DVCAM for a wide range of applications and workflow.
