About the Sony PMW-100

The Sony PMW100 One 1/2.9" Exmor CMOS XDCAM HD422 Handy Camcorder offers broadcast-quality 50 Mb/s MPEG-2 recording at 1920 x 1080 in a very compact form factor. Even loaded with an SxS card and the packaged Li-ion battery, the PMW-100 weighs slightly less than 4 lb. That's a crucial benefit for any mobile documentarian or news gatherer who's operating handheld over the course of long days to cover events & news stories, conduct on-the-spot interviews and capture video for just about any other professional task.

The handy PMW-100 is a comfortable companion for Sony's entire XDCAM line, including the optical-disc models and the camcorders, like this one, that record HD video to SxS cards. That's because it captures files to either FAT- or UDF-formatted cards, so you can easily integrate the PMW-100 into both XDCAM EX and XDCAM Professional Disc workflows. With two SxS slots that accept cards with capacities up to 64 GB, you can record up to 240 minutes even at the highest quality - that would be Sony's XDCAM 422 MPEG-2 codec, at 50 Mb/s.

Built into the camcorder is a 10x zoom lens that offers a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 40-400mm. Manual control over zoom is available via a Lens Control Ring; that ring can be switched over to focus control if you'd prefer to pull focus manually. Additionally there's a dial for setting exposure manually. The PMW-100 employs a single 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor (1/2.9" type) that's extremely sensitive, which makes the camcorder suitable for low-light videography. A NightShot function extends that functionality to complete darkness; a built-in infrared LED illuminates the dead of night.

Inputs and outputs are just what you'd expect from a professional camcorder. There's HD/SD-SDI output. For multi-camera shoots, you have timecode input/output and genlock in. There are also dual XLRs for audio, composite video out and HDMI out.
