Shoulder Mount Design

Its shoulder mount design is reminiscent of high-end broadcast cameras, offering stable footage and ideal for use at weddings, birthdays, interviews, conferences and more.

High Sensitivity Exmor R CMOS Sensor

Its 1/4″ Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers Full HD video recording at up to 60p, ensuring smooth footage, even when shooting fast action. Its back-illuminated design works well in low-light situations, enabling you to shoot in poorly lit environments. For extremely dark locations, a built-in 800 lumens LED video light equips you with the ability to still capture the shot you need.

Sony G Lens – 12x Optical Zoom

Complementing the high-sensitivity image sensor is an advanced Sony G Lens that delivers a sharp, high contrast picture on par with some of the most popular lenses in the industry. Offering a 35mm equivalent wide-angle 26.8mm to 321.6mm telephoto zoom the MC2500 offers exceptional versatility. The 12x optical zoom lens is perfect for shooting in cramped, confined spaces such as meeting rooms and equally impressive when used for capturing distant subjects in ceremonies, conferences, music concerts and more.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilisation

Built-in Optical Steady Shot further bolsters video quality, producing smooth, steady, professional quality footage. 3-Way Shake cancelling technology combined with the proven shoulder mount design ensures jitter-free footage, even while walking.

Custom Lens Ring Control

The advanced design ensuring changing settings such as focus, white balance, exposure, aperture and shutter speed is quick, easy and can be done without looking away from the viewfinder.

Wireless Camera Remote Control

Built-in WiFi with NFC connectivity is perfect for scenarios that require remote camera control. Set up the camera on a tripod and remotely start/stop recording, control zoom, aperture and touch focus from a compatible smartphone or tablet.
