The Sony XDCAM EX lineup continues to expand and improve with the PMW-320K Full HD Camcorder. Nearly identical to the larger-sensor PMW-350L, this professional shoulder-mount camera boasts three 1/2″-type full-HD CMOS sensors, solid state SxS workflow and an impressive set of advanced features, setting new standards for high-end videography. With a chassis based on the XDCAM HD422, the PMW-320K also manages to be one of the lightest – and most well-balanced – camcorders in its class (even factoring in the included 16x interchangeable Fujinon lens).
But comfort and portability are only the beginning. Pressing the Record button reveals what the PMW-320K is really about: topnotch image quality. And this camcorder comes by it honestly, whether in its High Quality 35Mbs HD setting or using the optional 25Mbs DVCAM recording mode. Either way, your images are captured quietly and efficiently to SxS PRO or the new, lower-cost SxS-1 memory cards – storing up to 280 minutes of MPEG-2 HD video on two 32GB cards. You can even record uncompressed 4:2:2 video by capturing to an external recorder via the camera’s HD-SDI output.
