Sony’s New HXR-MC2500 shoulder-style HD camcorder offers strong night or indoors performance and stable shooting for long events

4179Sony today announced the HXR-MC2500, a new addition to its High Definition (HD) range of memory camcorders. The HXR-MC2500 offers an ideal balance of performance and functionality in the digital era, with a wide variety of features necessary for serious videographers, and well within their reach at an affordable price point. Sony has designed the HXR-MC2500 with several enhancements over its existing HXR-MC1500 camera model, including an improved Exmor™ R CMOS sensor and new features such as a built-in LED light, OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi functionality, DV memory recording and a Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe. With these enhancements over previous models, the HXR-MC2500 is an ideal cost-effective solution for event videographers such as wedding videographers, who desire strong low-light performance, high picture quality, operational flexibility and reliability.

“The HXR-MC2500 is a prime example of how we’ve combined advanced imaging technologies with a host of operational features that the market today needs,” said Vivian Saldanha, Business Head - Content Creation, Sony Professional Solutions Middle East and Africa. “Our customers now enjoy a more comprehensive product offering from Sony, with this model providing practical functions that professionals need, such as wireless connectivity and longer recording time.”

Key Features of the HXR-MC2500

Highly-sensitive Exmor™ R CMOS sensor and built-in LED light

The HXR-MC2500 is capable of shooting clearly even in low-light or indoor environments. Its highly-sensitive Exmor™ R CMOS sensor adopts a back-illuminated technology that enables the image sensor to utilize incidental light more efficiently (minimum illuminance of 0.7 lux for PAL(*1)), helping the videographer to achieve rich image quality even during low-light shooting situations. Moreover, the HXR-MC2500 is also equipped with a convenient built-in LED light for valuable extra illumination.

Wide angle view, high contrast 1.44 million dots OLED viewfinder and 0.92 million dots 3-inch wide LCD panel for easy framing of shooting objects

The new camera is equipped with an OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder, offering a high resolution of approximately 1.44 million dots with high contrast levels. Sony’s proprietary viewfinder technologies allow for better tonal reproduction and more detailed picture information of shooting objects. In addition, there is also the built-in 3-inch wide high resolution LCD panel (approximately 0.92 million dots) for crisp and bright views.

Wi-Fi/NFC functions for seamless connection to smartphones

The HXR-MC2500 can connect to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets via a Wi-Fi connection, enabling monitoring and remote control functions such as start/stop recording, zoom control, iris control and touch auto focus. Furthermore, it is also NFC-capable (Near Field Communications) to allow easy, one-touch wireless connections to compatible mobile devices.

Ideal for long event shooting achieved by embedded 32GB internal flash memory and low power consumption

A 32GB internal flash memory storage system on board of the HXR-MC2500 enables longer duration recording of more than 150 minutes. In addition, by using a combination of the internal flash memory and memory card in the MS/SD slot, recording functions such as “Relay” and “Simultaneous” for backup can be available. When Sony’s L-Series InfoLithium battery NP-F970 (optional) is used, the HXR-MC2500 is capable of continuous long recording of up to 14 hours. This is a critical feature for important occasions where operators may not have the luxury to stop the camera, such as during the filming of wedding ceremonies or other live events.

More Professional Features for Event Shooting

26.8mm Wide-Angle Lens – one of the lenses with the widest angles in this class of camera, which enables wide-angle shooting even in small places

DV Memory – in addition to AVCHD Full HD format support, SD format support includes DV memory

Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe – expands options to use accessories without cables, such as the UWP-D11 wireless microphone receiver and XLR audio input by XLR adapter

BNC Composite Terminal – enables the use of BNC cables which prevents cable disconnect during critical shooting occasions such as live recording

TC/UB Implementation – Time Code and User Bit are included for situations like multi-camera shoots

Made In Japan
