Sony G Lens for Wide Angle Shooting. Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control are the heart and soul of the HXR-MC2000U's sophisticated G Lens, delivering exceptional performance on par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The camcorder perfectly complements the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony's famous image processing technology. Such fine calibration is bound to improve your shooting in all situations, from zooming in for the close-ups, to the 29.8 mm wide angle view in video mode (35mm equivalent).
Sony Exclusive Exmor R CMOS-Sensor with ClearVid Array and BIONZ Image Processor. The HXR-MC2000U's Exmor R CMOS sensor is capable of producing superb image quality, whether in bright daylight, dimly lit interior scenes, or outdoor night scenes. Featuring Sony's independently developed back-illuminated structure, it effectively doubles the sensitivity of conventional CMOS sensors and provides a dramatic boost in low-light performance. Sony's unique BIONZ image processor takes it even farther, processing the precise visual information to maintain reality, texture, and depth at the settings and styles you select. BIONZ technology faithfully reproduces the scenes or applies effects and visual techniques, depending on your wishes. And all at lightning speed while suppressing noise.
SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode. This new feature ensures smooth movement wherever you're shooting. In addition, Sony's innovative 3-Way Shake-Cancelling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. This latest version of image stabilization technology ensures images that are up to 10 times steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical Steady Shot® images. When you zoom in, an intelligent digital image stabilizer starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake. This technology is also able to reduce the natural swaying motion that occurs from walking.
Long Operating Time with infoLITHIUM-L® Series Battery and Internal Memory. The camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM-L series batteries. CMOS imager and DSP technology result in low power consumption for cool running with the camcorder's standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, compatible with many types of Sony professional camcorders and accessories. With the largest capacity battery NP-F970, you'll have a maximum operating time of approximately 13 hours for AVCHD recording in FH mode. In conjunction with the 64GB built-in memory, this camcorder allows more than six hours of continuous recording at the highest AVCHD quality at 24Mbps.
Record to Cards or Built-in Memory. You have two reliable ways to record with the HXR-MC2000U: onto affordable consumer memory cards or into the camcorder's large capacity 64GB** solidstate memory. This combination of removable and built-in memory is especially convenient when shooting a documentary or news report on the move. When data has been backed up to an HDD or downloaded to a PC for editing, you can simply reuse both removable memory cards and internal memory for your next assignment.
