XDCAM EX 2/3"-type Shoulder-mount Camcorder without Lens

Pricing available upon request

The XDCAM EX PMW-350 is the first Sony memory shoulder-mount camcorder, equipped with the cutting edge imaging technology of three 2/3 inch-type Exmor™ full HD CMOS sensors. These sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V), give the camcorder an excellent sensitivity of F12 and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio of 59 dB. Additionally, the large 2/3 inch–type sensors can capture images with a shallower depth of field, giving users more freedom of creative expression. The PMW-350 is studio-configurable, with timecode in/out, genlock in, HD/SD SDI and HDMI out, and also features a DVCAM recording option. Designed to be compact and ergonomically well-balanced, the PMW-350, with a main body weight of just over seven pounds, provides a high level of mobility and comfort in a wide variety of shooting situations. In addition, it has a low center of gravity, ensuring outstanding stability on the shoulder; and the PMW-350 is designed to be environmentally friendly thanks to its low power consumption of just 15 watts (main body only). The PMW-350L model comes without a lens and is equipped with a standard 2/3-inch bayonet lens mount. Users can choose from a wide variety of optional lenses in the existing 2/3-inch HD lens lineup. The full Sony XDCAM EX line-up provides stunning HD picture quality and efficient nonlinear operation, expanding the creative possibilities in every type of HD video production.
