Three 1/2-inch Exmor CMOS sensors XDCAM camcorder recording Full HD 422 at 50 Mbps
Building on the unparalleled success of the Sony PMW-EX1/R, the PMW-200 is the first handheld camera in its class to be equipped with three large, newly developed 1/2-inch Exmor CMOS sensors which provide excellent sensitivity and depth of field characteristics. Recording in Full HD 422 at 50 Mbps, the PMW-200 offers exceptional performance, operational versatility and workflow efficiency.

The PMW-200 is supplied with a 14x Fujinon lens for remarkable picture quality and flexible creative control with three independent rings with end stops. The PMW-200 can also record in a range of different formats as well as being compatible with other XDCAM HD 422 and XDCAM EX equipment.

HD 422 50 Mbps recordings ideal for a wide range of shooting conditions

High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps recording is fully compliant with the latest EBU recommendations for long form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses. This capability ensures the PMW-200 is ideal for a wide range of different applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.

Three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS Full HD sensors for a wide range of shooting conditions

The PMW-200 is the first handheld camera in its class to be equipped with three large, newly developed 1/2-inch Exmor CMOS sensors, which provide excellent sensitivity and depth of field characteristics. Each of the sensors has an effective pixel count of two million pixels and achieves Full HD 1920 x 1080 shooting without pixel interpolation. By placing multiple A/D converters in parallel, it has also been possible to reduce the speed of the operating clock and lower power consumption.

14x Fujinon professional HD zoom Lens with three independent rings with end stops

The 14x Fujinon high quality lens has auto focus and image stabilising functions, with an exceptionally flexible control system, which gives the operator the ability to operate the focus manually. The independent control of each ring of the lens – focus, zoom and iris – makes for better and faster adjustment. It also makes the system more accurate when setting because of the ‘stop’ function of each of the rings.

Optical SteadyShot and LCD panel for focus assist functions

Optical SteadyShot is activated by the electric lens shift mechanism. The camcorder’s 3.5-type LCD panel also helps the precise manual focus operation. The central part of the shooting frame (854 x480) can be magnified on the LCD panel and the viewfinder. The function is automatically cancelled five seconds after the focus ring is no longer in use. You can also select the peaking level in the menu and also choose the colour for the peaking signal on the LCD and viewfinder.

High quality MPEG HD 422 recordings

The PMW-200 supports MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF, which is widely accepted by major broadcasters worldwide. HD 422 gives a high quality image with more detailed colour reproduction, as well as being ideal for chromakeying. It’s also compatible with other XDCAM HD 422 camcorders, including the PMW-500 and the PMW-100, which streamlines workflow and reduces time in the edit.

Switchable recordings for greater flexibility

As well as shooting at HD 422 50 Mbps, the camcorder also supports MPEG HD 420 in MP4 file format, which is compatible with XDCAM EX camcorders and DVCAM at 25 Mbps.The file format is also selectable between MP4 (FAT) or MXF (UDF) in HD and AVI (FAT) or MXF (UDF) in SD.

WiFi remote control*

Apple iPads or Android mobile devices can be used as simple remote controllers. By attaching the optional CBK-WA01 WiFi adaptor, the remote can control zoom, focus, iris and white balance as well as the recording functions such as recording trigger.

* Available with firmware upgrade planned for release in November 2012.

Continuous recordings for easier ingest

Multiple clips can be recorded as a single clip making the ingest operation to a NLE easy.

Slow and quick motion from 1 fps to 60 fps

Slow motion shooting is possible with up to 60 frames per second (fps) recording in 720P or 30 fps recording in 1080P, when used with the SxS Pro or SxS-1 memory card. Quick motion can be obtained by slowing the frame rate down to 1 fps.

Cache recording

Utilising a 15 second cache recording function, the PMW-200 can help prevent the loss of important scenes or events that occur up to 15 seconds before the camera's REC start button is pressed.

Two SxS Memory Card slots

There are two SxS Memory Card slots, which allows for around four hours of continuous recording, with two hours of HD 422 50 Mbps recorded on each 64GB SxS Memory Card. Content can be copied between the two slots. The PMW-200 can use either SxS Pro or SxS-1 cards. It will also accept consumer recording media, including memory stick, SD card and XDQ card with an appropriate adaptor for emergency use.

Multi-camera operation

The camcorder has a genlock In and timecode In /Out interface so that it can link together with other cameras. The function makes the camcorder a cost effective alternative for use in multi camera event shoots.

Planning metadata automatically recorded

By loading a pre-recorded Planning Metadata file (XML file) to the PMW-200, either from an SxS memory card or a USB memory, the metadata is automatically generated and recorded as described in the XML file while recording. Also the filename of a clip is automatically set as described in the XML file.

Shutter angle setting similar to a film camera

As well as the standard electric shutter speed settings, the PMW-200 has an angle shutter setting, popular when shooting with a film camera. This is particularly useful when combining with Slow and Quick motion. By using the angle shutter, the ratio between exposure term and a frame term is always consistent, whatever frame number per second is selected in Slow and Quick motion, which means that the ‘intermittent effect’ is consistent, even in Slow and Quick motion, in the same way as shooting with a film camera.

Slow shutter and extended slow shutter

The slow shutter puts the operator at an advantage when shooting in low light. It allows the charge accumulation period of the imager to extend longer than a frame (field) term and the minimum illumination is drastically improved. The function is also useful for capturing a moving object with a special effect or afterimage, such as people’s movement at a crossroad.

Full auto mode for exposure control

In Full Auto mode the iris, gain and electric shutter are conveniently controlled automatically in combination to get the right exposure level.

HD/SD-SDI and HDMI Interface

The PMW-200 has an SDI interface so that it can connect with professional equipment including a monitor, recorder and switcher. It’s also possible to down-convert from HD to SD. There is also an HDMI interface making it possible to link to consumer products, such as a suitable HDTV or projector.

Connection to PC or Mac

The PMW-200 can be connected to a PC or Mac using the USB interface.

i.LINK interface

i.LINK (HDV) Out can be activated while SP 1440 (FAT) or DVCAM (FAT) is selected and the i.LINK (HDV) In signal can be recorded while the video format is set appropriately.

Four hours of use with a BP-U battery

Around four hours of operation is possible with a mid-sized BP-U60 battery. A BP-U 30 or BP-U90 can also be used.

4 channels 24-bit 48 kHz audio recordings

The PMW-200 is equipped with an integrated stereo microphone in front of the camera handle. There are also two XLR connectors, which connect to a wide range of professional microphone products. 24-bit 48 kHz audio can be recorded in HD 422 50 Mbps, with up to four channels of audio recorded, using two internal mics and two external mics.

Aspect mask to show safety area

The PMW-200’s viewfinder and LCD can display the aspect area information, which will show the safety area of a frame. When an Aspect Marker is selected, the white rectangle to show the aspect area is displayed and when an Aspect Mask is selected, the outside of the aspect area is displayed with reduced brightness.

Assign buttons, menu control and output setting for greater flexibility

There are five assign buttons on the PMW-200 to allow the operator to choose a range of functions to automatically assign. The PMW-200 also has a menu function that is the same as the PMW-100 and consists of camera set, audio set, video set, LCD/VF set, TC/UB set and others. The output signal from the PMW-200 can also be selected depending on the menu setting.

Power on Quick Rec to help getup and running quicker

If the camera power is turned on while pushing a REC button, the ‘Quick Rec’ mode is activated. By accelerating the power on process, the camcorder can start up and begin recording more quickly than normal.
