- XAVC HD Intra 100 Mbps and Long GoP recordings plus Full HD MPEG-2 HD 422 50 Mbps
The PMW-300K1 supports XAVC 10-bit HD422 recordings, including XAVC Intra frame 10-bit HD 422 100 Mbps and XAVC Long GOP 10-bit HD 422. It also records Full HD MPEG HD 422 at 50 Mbps in industry-standard MXF files, along with 24-bit 48 kHz, 4-channel audio. It is also capable of recording MPEG-2 HD 420 in Full HD (1920 x 1080) at 35 Mbps. Standard Definition recording includes DVCAM format and MPEG IMX SD up to 50Mbps. MPEG IMX format offers exceptional visual quality for SD recording that is comparable to Digital Betacam broadcast standard.
- Three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS Full HD sensors and low-light 3DNR technology for a wide range of shooting conditions
The three 1/2-inch Exmor Full-HD CMOS sensors offer high light sensitivity and low image noise. As a consequence, it delivers clear high-resolution images even when filming in low-light conditions. The camcorder also includes Sony's 3Dimensional Noise Reducer technology, which reduce noise between frames and thus creates noticeably clearer images.
- Precision focusing with 3.5-inch color LCD viewfinder
An enhanced HD-resolution 3.5-inch color LCD viewfinder enables precision focusing for HD camcorder work, while the 8-pin remote-control and multi-camera operation capability allows the PMW-300K1 to be used in 3D configurations and high-end camera systems.
- HD/SD-SDI and HDMI interfaces for integration with broadcast infrastructures
The PMW-300K1 has an SDI interface so that it can connect with broadcast infrastructures and professional equipment. 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, including a standard consumer TV. SDI and HDMI interfaces are available in the same time.
- Wide range of frame rates
The camcorder has standard recording modes of 1920 x 1080/25P or 50i and can additionally record at 59.94i, 23.98P and 29.97P in MPEG-2 HD 422 mode. At 1280 x 720, the camcorder can record 25P as well as 23.98P, 29.97P, 50P and 59.94P. Further recording modes are also possible at MPEG-2 HD 420 and DVCAM.
- 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.
- Semi-shoulder robust design with metal body
The PMW-300K1 features an innovative semi-shoulder design with an extendable chest pad mechanism and rotary hand grip, allowing comfortable recording over long periods of time. Its magnesium metal body ensures the camcorder is robust and, like its predecessor, the PMW-EX3, can withstand even the harshest production environments.
- Cache recording
Utilizing a 15 second cache recording function, the PMW-300K1 can help prevent the loss of important scenes or events that occur up to 15 seconds before the camcorder's REC start button is pressed.
- Two SxS Memory Card slots plus Memory Stick, SD card and XDQ card options
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-300K1 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.
- Planning metadata automatically recorded
By loading a pre-recorded Planning Metadata file to the PMW-300K1, 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.
