Manufacturer's Description

The PMW-EX1R is the successor to the multiple award-winning EX1 and further extends the capabilities of the XDCAM EX family with great new features such as DVCAM recording, Cache Recording, Picture Inversion and a host of additional refinements. The EX1R is the ideal solution for customers such as broadcasters, independent videographers and film makers who need exceptional HD picture quality and state-of-the-art workflow from a compact and affordable handheld camcorder.

Sony’s XDCAM EX professional product range is designed to exploit the ultimate high performance of SxS memory cards. It combines a proven, non-linear XDCAM workflow with the only Full HD resolution sensor system available in a compact camcorder. This advanced imaging system consists of three ½-inch type Exmor™ CMOS sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920×1080, to produce images in full HD resolution. In addition, there’s a purpose-built Fujinon Professional HD 14x zoom lens and a unique dual focus ring mechanism.

The EX1R supports multiple frame rate recording such as 59.94i, 50i, and native 23.98P and 25P as well as being 1080i/720P switchable. There is also a choice of a 35Mb/s High Quality mode, 25Mb/s HDV 1080i compatible mode and 25Mb/s Standard Definition DVCAM recording. Twin memory card slots support up to 280 minutes HD recording time using two 32GB SxS PRO memory cards.

XDCAM EX is a focus of continual innovation and development, from IT-friendly MP4 file recording and advanced creative features, through to accessories such as SxS-1 low cost media and an adaptor enabling the use of high-speed Memory Sticks™.

This product comes with the full PrimeSupport package. That’s fast, hassle-free repairs, a helpline offering expert technical advice, and a free loan unit while yours is repaired. Plus the peace of mind that Sony is looking after your equipment – and your business.
