Go beyond Full HD with 4K
Meet the video camera that offers 4K recording. Shoot video that displays over 8 million pixels (3840 x 2160)-four times the resolution of Full HD-and capture moments in unrivaled, realistic detail that bursts with vibrant color.
XAVC S recording format
Derived from a professional-quality recording format, XAVC S compresses both the video and audio (using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and PCM, respectively) of your movies before saving as an MP4 file. XAVC S also lets you record images at 50 Mbps, enhancing the level of detail associated with Full HD content while reducing the effects of compression noise.
Easy playback with HDMI
Connect the Handycam® to a 4K monitor or TV using the in-pack 4K-ready HDMI cable, and start watching movies in breathtakingly realistic detail. No 4K monitor" No problem. Simply connect the Handycam®, change the HDMI output settings to 1920 x 1080, and play movies on your HD TV.
XQD media cards
The twin XQD media card slots-compatible with S- and N-Series XQD cards-deliver smooth, high read and write speeds for 4K video. With the option to switch to relay recording*, shoot longer without worrying about the recording stopping when one memory card fills up. (* Video and sound may be cut temporarily in the relay recording process.)
XLR sound terminals
Outstanding video deserves outstanding sound. In addition to the high-quality internal microphone, two external XLR terminals let you connect high-performance pro microphones to the camera.
Creative control with ASSIGN buttons
The seven on-camera ASSIGN buttons are designed for quick, easy navigation between camera settings. Allocate specific functions-including Marker, Zebra, Peaking, Focus Magnifier, Auto Exposure Level, SteadyShot, Color Bars, Rec Lamp [F], Rec Lamp [R], and Thumbnail-to an ASSIGN button to find a setup that works best for you.
