1/2.9-inch type Exmor CMOS sensor for uncompromising full HD image capture
The PMW-100 is equipped with a 1/2.9-inch type Exmor CMOS sensor, providing super blow-light sensitivity with a low noise level, enabling the camcorder to capture beautiful pictures while remaining light weight and compact.
MPEG 422 / 420 HD and SD recordings ensure compatibility with existing XDCAM work flows
The PMW-100 supports both MPEG 422 and 420 recording modes, so footage can be easily intercut with material shot by either opticalor memory-based XDCAM and XDCAM EX camcorders. The PMW-100 also supports both UDF and FAT shooting modes on SxS cards so you can use existing XDCAM and XDCAM EXwork flows.
Large 3.5-inch WVGA (852x480) LCD panel
The PMW-100 is equipped with a large, easy-to-read, 3.5-inch WVGA colour LCD panel. This higher resolution LCD panel helps you to make more precise focusing adjustments as well asto read the status and markers displayed onthe LCD panel. When this LCD panel is not being used, it is placed above the lens so it’s out of the way when carrying the camcorder.
Over 4 hours continuous recording with two 64 GB SxS memory cards
The PMW-100 uses Sony’s renowned high-speed SxS ExpressCard recording media. The PMW-100 has two SxS card slots which support both SxSPro and SxS-1 recording media. Using a single SxS-1 64 GB memory card, you can record approximately 120 minutes of 50 Mbps HD 422 video.Using 64 GB SxS cards in both SxS slots enables you to record approximately 240 minutes of video.
Slow and quick motion recordings
The PMW-100 offers over-cranking and under-cranking,which enables photographers to create slow- and fast-motion visual effects in-camera. With this Slow & Quick Motion function, images are recorded natively with no padded frames and at full resolution. The quality of the slow- and fast-motion images created in-camera is significantly higher than those created through an editing process.
Lens controls for greater versatility
Focusing and zooming are manually controlled using the focus/zoom ring. Also, the exposure level can be manually controlled using an exposure control dial. A wide conversion lens is also available for close range shooting.
Instant shooting with video buffer
Never be caught off guard and miss a critical shot. The PMW-100 will start recording within 3.5 seconds after turning the power on. Also, cache recording enables you to constantly buffer a 15-second video loop in camera. When you press the record button, the loop is written to the SxS card while normal recording begins.
The PMW-100 supports DVCAM recording as well as MPEG HD recording. The file formatin DVCAM recording mode is selectable from either MXF or AVI, and most non-linear editing systems accept these files. The PMW-100 is also equipped with an i.LINK interface and ingestto non-linear editing systems can be done via the i.LINK (DV) interface as well.
The PMW-100 is equipped with Genlock input and time code input/output (selectable) in order to support multiple camera operation. Video from the cameras (e.g. through SDI) can be connected to a switcher for live switching. Or the recorded content on the camcorders can be edited with a non-linear editing system that offers a multi-camera editing function.
