Product Description

Sony HXR-MC2500 Shoulder Mount AVCHD Camcorder

Shoulder Mount Design

Show your clients you mean business with the Sony HXR-MC2500 Digital Video Camera. Its shoulder mount design is reminiscent of high-end broadcast cameras, offering stable footage and ideal for use at weddings, birthdays, interviews, conferences and more.

High Sensitivity Exmor R CMOS Sensor

Its 1/4" Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers Full HD video recording at up to 60p, ensuring smooth footage, even when shooting fast action. Its back-illuminated design works well in low-light situations, enabling you to shoot in poorly lit environments while still maintaining the natural ambience of the scene. For extremely dark locations, a built-in 800 lumens LED video light equips you with the ability to still capture the shot you need.

Sony G Lens - 12x Optical Zoom

Complementing the high-sensitivity image sensor is an advanced Sony G Lens that delivers a sharp, high contrast picture on par with some of the most popular lenses in the industry. Offering a 35mm equivalent wide-angle 26.8mm to 321.6mm telephoto zoom the MC2500 offers exceptional versatility. The 12x optical zoom lens is perfect for shooting in cramped, confined spaces such as meeting rooms and equally impressive when used for capturing distant subjects in ceremonies, conferences, music concerts and more.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilisation

Built-in Optical Steady Shot further bolsters video quality, producing smooth, steady, professional quality footage. 3-Way Shake cancelling technology combined with the proven shoulder mount design ensures jitter free footage, even while walking.

Custom Lens Ring Control

A customisable lens ring delivers excellent ergonomics and camera control. The advanced design ensuring changing settings such as focus, white balance, exposure, aperture and shutter speed is quick, easy and can be done without looking away from the viewfinder.

Hot/Cold Shoe Mounting Points

The top of the camera features a Multi-Interface Hot Shoe that supports a wide range of accessories to help push the quality of your footage even further. The main handle also features two cold-shoe adapters to cater for accessories such as LED lights, microphones, external audio adapters and video monitors. Combined, the three mounting points providing plenty of options to set-up the camera according to your shooting preferences or requirements.

Wireless Camera Remote Control

Built-in WiFiwith NFC connectivity is perfect for scenarios that require remote camera control. Set up the camera on a tripod and remotely start/stop recording, control zoom, aperture and touch focus from a compatible smartphone or tablet.

3-inch OLED Display & High Contrast EVF

A wide-angle view, high contrast OLED viewfinder and a 3-inch LCD display can be used for precise composition and playback. The 1.44 million-dot EVF delivers high contrast images with excellent tonal reproduction, enabling you to easily check exposure and white balance in all lighting conditions. The large 3-inch LCD Panel is perfect for image playback and a more casual shooting style.

32GB Internal Storage & MemoryStick/SD Card Slot

With 32GB of built-in memory, capable of storing up to 150 minutes of footage and a SD or Memory Stick slow for additional storage, the Sony HXR-MC2500 is a great choice for videographers and filmmakers who require a combination of versatility and stability in their day to dayproduction.
