New Sony XDCam now in house!

Just took delivery of a new camera for our production arsenal today. The brand new Sony PMW-100 XDCam is now in hand. This great new full HD (can do full 1080 at 50MB/sec) camera will be a great addition to the toolset.

Here are the specs of this new beauty:

The PMW-100 is Sony’s first handheld camcorder supporting the 50 Mbps MPEG HD422 codec. It is a good companion to the PMW-500 XDCAM HD422 shouldermount camera. With its one 1/3″ (actual size: 1/2.9″) Full HD Exmor CMOS sensor (1920×1280), the PMW-100 is able to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range in a small camera. The PMW-100 can be used for both SD and HD applications. It can be set to record 50 Mbps MPEG HD422 as MXF files on UDF formatted cards just like the PMW-500 memory camcorder or the PDW-700/F800 optical disc based camcorders. Or you can set the camcorder for FAT mode recording to shoot SxS cards which are compabile with the XDCAM EX format made by the PMW-EX1/R or PMW-320/350. For SD applications you can make DVCAM recordings as either MXF files or XDCAM EX compatible files.
