The Sony PXW-X200 Full HD XDCAM camcorder is the successor to Sony’s popular PMW-200 camcorder. It can record Full HD 1920×1080 in the same 8-bit MPEG-2 HD422 50Mbit/s format available in the PMW-200 but adds Sony’s new XAVC codecs offering 10-bit XAVC Intraframe up to 112Mbit/s as well as 10-bit XAVC Long GOP, delivering exceptional performance, operational versatility and workflow efficiency.

 

The Sony PXW-X200 features three ½” Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors (1920×1080) capable of achieving high resolution, low noise and wide dynamic range. The Sony PXW-X200 functions for HD or SD recording and features a 17x Fujinon zoom lens (servo or manual switchable) with a unique focus ring mechanism.

The Sony PXW-X200 camera can record up to 112Mbit/s 10-bit XAVC Intraframe as MXF files on exFAT formatted SxS memory cards (in the same way as the PMW-300 and PXW-FS7 cameras). This high quality recording is fully compliant with EBU recommendations for long form broadcast production and is widely accepted by broadcasters. In UDF mode the Sony PXW-X200 records to SxS cards in XDCAM HD422 format and in FAT mode records in XDCAM EX format.

The Sony PXW-X200 is equipped with dual SxS memory card slots as well as an SD card slot for proxy recording and is switchable between NTSC, NTSC (J) and PAL. Other PXW-X200 functions include slow/quick motion playback, focus magnification, slow shutter, shutter angle settings, interval recording and cache recording. The Sony PXW-X200 features 4 channel audio recordings with 2 x XLR inputs for professional sound equipment and stereo internal mic for basic sound capture. WiFi and mobile internet connectivity means you can control the PXW-X200 remotely from a smartphone or tablet and can stream the proxy recordings using FTP. The PXW-X200 is compact and lightweight for better mobility, with low power consumption.
