About the Sony HXR-MC1500E

The Sony HXR-MC1500E Shoulder Mount PAL AVCHD Camcorder is the go-to solution when you're ready to leave tape behind and step up to a file-based video workflow. Whether shooting 576i standard-definition or 1080/50i HD video, this sturdy performer will capture hours of high-quality images onto either removable media or a large 32GB internal hard drive. Composite, component and HDMI ports give you a choice of video output, while the included shotgun microphone is accompanied by a stereo mini jack to attach a second external mic.

Sporting a 12x G lens, 0.2" viewfinder and 2.7" LCD display, the HXR-MC1500E's impressive form factor is about more than simply saying "pro" to your clients. Unlike smaller, handheld units, this camera can rest comfortably on your shoulder for rock-steady handheld shooting--aided further by Sony's Optical Steady Shot with Active mode. Perfect for weddings, sporting events and corporate or educational videos, the HXR-MC1500E represents an affordable transition into solid state, professional imaging.

Sony HXR-MC1500E Features

  • Wide-angle G Lens: The HXR-MC1500E 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
  • Exmor R CMOS Sensor with ClearVid Array: The HXR-MC1500E's Exmor R CMOS sensor is capable of producing superb image quality even in lowlight conditions. Sony's unique imaging system incorporates exclusive back-illuminated technology that doubles sensitivity compared to conventional CMOS sensors
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: This 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
  • Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters: Using 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
  • Long Operating Time with infoLITHIUM-L Series Battery: The HXR-MC1500E camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, which are compatible with many of Sony Professional's camcorders and accessories
  • Ergonomic Handle & Controls: The 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 Cards: The HXR-MC1500E 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
  • AVCHD: Ideal for Memory Recording: AVCHD 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
  • MPEG-2 for SD Recording Format: The HXR-MC1500E'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 Copy: When 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
