Wide-angle G LensThe HXR-MC2000E comes equipped with a sophisticated G Lens that incorporates Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control, delivering exceptional performance on a par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The HXR-MC2000E itself is optimised to perfectly complement the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony’s famous image processing technology. This improves picture performance whether zooming in on the action, or getting a perspective on the big picture with the 29.8 mm wide angle in Video mode (35mm equivalent).Exmor® CMOS Sensor with ClearVid ArrayThe HXR-MC2000E’s Exmor R® CMOS sensor is capable of producing superb image quality even in low-light conditions. Sony’s unique imaging system incorporates exclusive back-illuminated technology that doubles sensitivity compared to conventional CMOS sensors, providing a dramatic boost in low-light performance. Autofocus technology is also enhanced to perform better in low-light conditions, so the G-lens can quickly achieve sharp focus on a moving subject. This superb performance in dimly indoor scenes and outdoor night scenes is matched by excellent results in bright daylight.Optical SteadyShot with Active ModeThis feature ensures smooth movement while recording footage in many challenging shooting situations. In addition, Sony’s innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. This latest version of image stabilisation technology realizes images that are up to 10x steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images. As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabiliser starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake. This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that commonly occurs when shooting while walking.Manual Lens Ring with Assignable ParametersUsing the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority. Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background. Shutter-speed can also be controlled to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight etc.Long Operating Time with infoLITHIUM-L Series BatteryThe HXR-MC2000E camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, which are compatible with many of Sony Professional’s camcorders and accessories. The largest capacity battery (NP-F970) provides a maximum operating time of approximately 13 hours using AVCHD recording in FH mode.Ergonomic Handle & ControlsThe ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle, which allow for the attachment of two different types of accessories.Flexible Operation with Consumer Memory CardsThe HXR-MC2000E supports recording directly onto Memory Stick Pro Duo or SD/SDHC cards (please see Specifications for compatible memory cards). This makes it convenient and economical to obtain new media in almost any location. In addition, a large capacity 64GB solid-state memory comes built into the camcorder body. This combination of removable and built-in memory is especially convenient when shooting a corporate event or wedding on the move. When content has been backed up to a HDD or downloaded to a PC for editing, you can simply reuse both the removable memory cards and internal memory for your next assignment.AVCHD – Ideal for Memory RecordingAVCHD is a highly efficient data compression format which greatly reduces memory requirements, maximizing the benefits of file-based recording with high image quality in a small file size. This is made possible by the exceptionally efficient MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec. Many consumer electronic devices already support AVCHD playback, and more are on the way. Numerous major NLE software programs feature AVCHD input and editing.MPEG-2 for SD (Standard Definition) Recording FormatThe HXR-MC2000E’s Standard Definition recording format is MPEG-2, which is the same compression codec as standard DVD video discs. If your project will end up on DVD, then using this format can save you production time and maintain the original image quality.DVDirect & Direct CopyWhen the camcorder is connected to the optional DVDirect Express (VRD-P1) DVD writer via a USB cable, a single press of the One Touch Disk button is all it takes to burn video footage directly onto a DVD - without using a PC. This model is also equipped with a down-conversion function that enables DVD burning to SD picture quality. Users can playback a DVD they just created simply by pressing the Play button on the DVDirect Express when the camcorder is connected.
With Direct Copy you also have the option of quickly and easily backing up valuable video data on an external hard disk drive, HDD - without using a PC. Simply connect the camcorder using the supplied USB Adaptor Cable (VMC-UAM1).Peace of MindThe HXR-MC2000E comes supplied with a 2-year PrimeSupport contract which offers unique extra services and benefits;
