Description

Overview

This camera 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 camcorder features the same rugged metal construction, interchangeable EX lens mount, and 14x Fujinon HD lens as the PMW-EX3, but introduces advanced signal processing technology for low-noise and clearer images. The PMW-300K1 also features a 3.5″ 960 x 540 LCD viewfinder, built-in ND filters, and 8 assignable function buttons.

Full HD MPEG-2 HD 422 Recording at 50 Mbps

The PMW-300K1 captures Full HD 1920 x 1080 video using the broadcast-quality MPEG-2 HD 422 codec at 50 Mbps. It creates industry-standard MXF files. The camcorder can also record Full HD video in MPEG-2 HD 420 at 35 Mbps.

Three 1/2 type Exmor CMOS Sensors

Three, 1/2 sized Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors provide good low-light performance with low image noise. The camcorder also includes Sony’s 3Dimensional Noise Reducer technology (3DNR) to further reduce noise between frames.

3.5 Colour LCD Viewfinder

A 3.5 960 x 540 colour LCD viewfinder enables precision focusing for HD-resolution footage. The viewfinder cover can be flipped up for easier viewing of the LCD screen when the camera is on set.

Slow and quick motion from 1 fps to 60 fps

Slow motion shooting is possible with up to 60 frames per second (fps) recording in 720P or 30 fps recording in 1080P, when used with the SxS Pro or SxS-1 memory card. You can obtain quick motion by slowing down the frame to 1 fps.

Cache recording

Utilising a 15-second cache recording function, the PMW-300K1 can help prevent the loss of important scenes or events that occur up to 15 seconds before the camcorder’s REC start button is pressed.

4 channels 24-bit 48 kHz audio recordings

The camera is equipped with two XLR connectors, which connect to Sony’s range of professional microphone products. 24-bit 48kHz audio can be recorded in HD 422 50 Mbps, with up to four channels of audio recorded.

Two SxS Memory Card Slots

The PMW-300K1 is equipped with two SxS memory card slots. Using two 64GB SxS cards will give you around four hours of continuous MPEG HD422 50Mbps recording. The camcorder accepts either SxS Pro or SxS-1 cards.

Semi-shoulder Design with Metal Body

The semi-shoulder design features an extendable chest pad mechanism and rotary hand grip to allow you to shoot comfortably for extended periods of time. The magnesium alloy body gives the camcorder the durability needed to handle the demands of production environments.
