Sony PMW-300

The PMW-300K1 XDCAM HD Camcorder from Sony is designed to meet the demands of field video productions and professional studio applications. It is Sony’s first semi-shoulder mount camcorder to combine the low-light capabilities of three, 1/2″ Exmor Full HD CMOS sensors with the broadcast-quality, Full HD MPEG HD422 codec.


The PMW-300K1 supports 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 Full HD (1920 x 1080) MPEG HD 422 at 50 Mbps in industry-standard MXF files, along with 24-bit 48 kHz, 4-channel audio. It is also capable of recording MPEG-2 HD 420 in Full HD (1920 x 1080) at 35 Mbps. 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. Standard Definition options include MPEG IMX and DVCAM.
