Sony PMW400

ImageNZ now have a new Sony PMW400 in the camera line up.  The PMW400 adds a 5th full fiber chain to the OB system.

Using Sony PMW350’s and 400’s provides versatility with the cameras able to be utilised in field mode – recording on board – or full OB mode with the Sony CA-FB70 & HXCU-FB70 fiber system.

The PMW-400 series is an SxS memory shoulder-mount camcorder which can record high quality 50Mbps MPEG-2 HD422 video as MXF files on SxS memory cards. It is equipped with the cutting edge imaging technology of three 2/3 inch-type Exmor™ full HD CMOS sensors. These sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V), give the camcorder an excellent resolution, dynamic range and color reproduction capabilities. Additionally, the large 2/3 inch–type sensors can capture images with a shallower depth of field, giving users more freedom of creative expression. The PMW-400 series is studio-configurable, with timecode IN/OUT, GENLOCK IN, HD/SD-SDI and HDMI out, and also features a DVCAM recording option. It also features a 3DNR (Three Dimensional Noise Reduction) technology delivering a cleaner signal for a better Signal-to-Noise ratio and in addition, Flash- Band Compensation will be a standard feature of the camera.  Designed to be compact and ergonomically well-balanced, the PMW-400 series provides a high level of mobility and comfort in a wide variety of shooting situations.
