Three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS Full HD sensors offer superb picture quality
The PXW-X200 incorporates three 1/2-inch type Full-HD Exmor CMOS sensors to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. With these image sensors, the PXW-X200 achieves a high sensitivity of F12 at 1080/59.94i and F13 at 1080/50i – essential levels for professionals shooting under challenging lighting conditions.
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW-X200 supports not only MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF (Material eXchange Format), which is widely accepted by major broadcasters worldwide, but also XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP codecs. XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression technology. XAVC Intra (frame) compression means that every frame is encoded independent of the other frames providing a better quality picture, without compromises. With a Long GOP codec, only certain frames are encoded individually. This allows the codec to squeeze the video into a much smaller bitrate than Intra technology. The main benefit is faster ingest and editing. XAVC Long GOP files also require less storage space than XAVC Intra files, providing budget savings on recording media. The XAVC codec adopts 10-bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression.
Dual SxS media slots
The camcorder is equipped with two SxS memory card slots, which can record in either Simul or Relay mode. Simul mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards, including simultaneous recordings of MPEG HD exFAT and UDF recordings. Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full.
Near Field Communication (NFC) function with Content Browser Mobile
A Near Field Communication (NFC) function allows easy, one-touch wireless LAN connection to a smartphone or tablet device without manual setting of the network parameters. The Content Browser Mobile application enables users to monitor the currently shot video and to wirelessly control camcorder settings such as focus, zoom, iris, white balance, REC START/STOP, and more.
0.45-type LCD viewfinder
The camcorder has the 0.45-type 1.23M pixels (852 x 480) LCD viewfinder (16:9).
Slow & Quick motion
A Slow & Quick Motion function is available on the camcorder. The recording frame rate can be selected from 1 frame per second (fps) to 60 fps both in 1080P and 720P format to create high-quality slow motion or quick motion images. The selectable frame rate depends on the CODEC selected in the camera.
The camcorder is equipped with a GPS device. The GPS data is automatically recorded in two file locations.
Customisable menu with lock function
Typically associated only with high-end camcorders, this feature allows you to pick and organize frequently used menu items – similar to the bookmark feature of a web browser. By using this feature, you can save a lot of time with no need to repeatedly search for specific menu items. In addition, the user menu can be locked with a 4-digit passcode to ensure there are no unnecessary changes.
Once activated, the camcorder continuously streams audio and video into its internal memory. When the REC START/STOP button is pressed, content buffered in the camcorder’s memory is recorded onto the memory card at the start of the recording clip. The caching period can be set at up to 15 seconds. This function is useful when shooting a developing situation such as during news gathering, so as not to miss a critical moment.
The camcorder is equipped with a three position ND filter. Clear, 1/8ND or 1/64ND can be chosen.
The camcorder has Picture Profile function. The settings can be saved on a SxS memory card and shared with the other PXW-X200 camcorders.
Timecode and Genlock
The camcorder is equipped with timecode input/output (selectable) and genlock input interfaces. These interfaces are useful when shooting with multiple camcorders. The video signal timing and the timecode can be synchronized among the camcorders, and this helps when assembling video clips from multiple camcorders in the editing process.
