    • The HXR-MC2500 comes equipped with a sophisticated G Lens that incorporates Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control, delivering exceptional performance on a par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The HXR-MC2500 itself is optimized to perfectly complement the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony’s famous image processing technology.

    • *35mm or equivalent.
  • Highly-sensitive Exmor™ R CMOS sensor and built-in LED light
    • TheHXR-MC2500is capable of shooting clearly even in low-light or indoor environments. Its highly-sensitive Exmor™ R CMOS sensor adopts a back-illuminated technology that enables the image sensor to utilize incidental light more efficiently, helping the videographer to achieve rich image quality even during low-light shooting situations. Moreover, the HXR-MC2500 is also equipped with a convenient built-in LED light for valuable extra illumination when needed.
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode
    • This feature ensures smooth movement while recording footage in many challenging shooting situations. In addition, Sony’s innovative 3-Way Shake-Cancelling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. This latest version of image stabilization technology realizes images that are up to 10x steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images. As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabilizer starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake. This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that commonly occurs when shooting while walking.
  • Wide angle view, high contrast OLED viewfinder and 3" wide LCD panel
    • The HXR-MC2500 is equipped with an OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder, offering a high resolution of approximately 1.44 million dots with high contrast levels. Sony’s proprietary viewfinder technologies allow for better tonal reproduction and more detailed picture information when shooting. In addition, there is also the built-in 3" wide high resolution LCD panel (approximately 0.92 million dots) for crisp and bright views.
  • Wi-Fi/NFC functions for seamless connection to smartphones
    • TheHXR-MC2500can connect to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets via a Wi-Fi connection, enabling monitoring and remote control functions such as start/stop recording, zoom control, iris control and touch auto focus. Furthermore, it is also NFC-capable (Near Field Communications) to allow easy, one-touch wireless connections to compatible mobile devices.
  • Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe
    • The MI Shoe expands your options to use accessories without cables, such as the UWP-D11 wireless microphone receiver and XLR audio input by XLR adapter.
  • Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters
    • Using the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority, and Shutter Speed priority. Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background. Shutter-speed can also be controlled to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight etc.
  • Ideal for long event shooting with 32GB internal flash memory and low power consumption
    • A 32GB internal flash memory enables longer duration recording of more than 150 minutes. In addition, by using a combination of the internal flash memory and memory card in the MS/SD slot, recording functions such as “Relay” and “Simultaneous” for backup can be available. When Sony’s L-Series InfoLithium battery NP-F970 (optional) is used, the HXR-MC2500 is capable of continuous long recording of up to 14 hours. This is a critical feature for important occasions where operators may not have the luxury to stop the camera, such as during the filming of wedding ceremonies or other live events.
  • Ergonomic Handle & Controls
    • The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle, which allow for the attachment of two different types of accessories.
  • AVCHD – Ideal for Memory Recording
    • AVCHD is a highly efficient data compression format which greatly reduces memory requirements, maximizing the benefits of file-based recording with high image quality in a small file size. This is made possible by the exceptionally efficient MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec at 50/60p@28mbps. Many consumer electronic devices already support AVCHD playback, and more are on the way. Numerous major NLE software programs feature AVCHD input and editing. The HXR-MC2500’s Standard Definition recording format is in DV memory format.
  • Additional professional features
    • A BNC Composite Terminal enables use of BNC cables for a professional secure connection, which prevents cable disconnect during critical shooting occasions such as live recording.
    • TC/UB Implementation: Time Code and User Bit are included for situations like multi-camera shoots
