The HXR-MC2500
Shoulder Mount AVCHD Camcorder from Sony is designed for shooters looking for
the inherent stability and professional feel a shoulder-mount form factor
provides. It features a 1/4" Exmor R CMOS chip that can work with as
little as 0.8 lux illumination when in SD mode, and low light performance is
further augmented by a built-in LED light shinning 800 lumens at 1.6; distance.
The camera records Full HD in the widely supported AVCHD format and can record
SD in the DV codec with an AVI wrapper. Using DV rather than DVD-style MPEG-2
compression for SD means a higher quality thanks to lower compression and
compatibility with more editing software. The camera is Wi-Fi enabled allowing
you to control it from an app as well as monitor a low-latency live feed on a
smartphone or tablet. Along with two cold shoes, the HXR-MC2500 features one
Sony Multi-Interface hot shoe, which allows the attachment of proprietary
accessories such as lights and microphones. The hot shoe design means no
separate cables will be required for audio accessories and lights will not
require a separate battery or power source since they can draw off the camera
battery. The two standard shoes provide mounting for third-party lights, field
monitors, microphones, wireless receivers, and other on-camera accessories. For
live monitoring, there is an HDMI output, plus composite output which is on a
locking BNC connector to ensure the cable doesn't get accidentally get yanked
loose during a live broadcast. Video can be recorded internally to the 32GB
flash memory, which stores about 170 minutes hours at the 24 Mbps (FX) quality
setting, or a SDHC/SDXC or Memory-Stick memory card.

Wide 26.8mm Angle Lens

With 12x zoom, the
lens features a 26.8mm equivalent focal length when at its widest setting,
helping to minimize the times a wide angle adapter or converter will be

Exmor R CMOS sensor

The Exmor R CMOS has
been redesigned from the previous model to deliver up to 0.8 lux sensitivity in
SD mode. In part this sensitivity bump comes from the use of backside
illumination, which moves much of the circuity to the back of the sensor
enabling larger photosites which can capture more light

OLED Tru-Finder and
3" LCD Panel

The Tru-Finder
viewfinder uses OLED technology for a better viewing angle and features a
resolution of 1.44 million dots, adequate for critical manual focusing. There
is also a 3" LCD panel for when the camera is not being used over the
shoulder, which features a 0.92 million dot resolution. The LCD screen can be
close or disabled when not in use to conserve battery


The HXR-MC2500 is
capable of up to 0.8 lux minimum illumination when using manual settings with
the shutter set to 1/15 second, the iris at f/1.8, and the gain at 33dB. Plus,
there is a built-in LED video light that casts 800 lumens brightness when 1.6'
from the subject

 Wi-Fi Enabled
with NFC Connectivity

Through Wi-Fi it is
possible to operate a number of camera settings from a smart-phone or tablet.
You can also monitor a live feed, which is ideal for setups - such as a news
conference - where the camera will be placed somewhere that people aren't
allowed during the event. The NFC feature saves time, allowing you to pair the
camera with NFC-enabled mobile devices simply by tapping the device to the
camera. Functions you can access through the app include:

  • Record start/stop
  • Zoom
  • Iris
  • Touch Auto Focus

Hybrid Recording

The camera comes
equipped with 32GB of built-in memory, offering approximately 170 minutes in
the 24 Mbps (FX) quality setting. There is also a memory card slot that can
accept SD, SDHC, SDXC, and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo cards - all available
separately - for even longer recording times. Simultaneous modes lets you
record to both media at once, while Relay will roller over from one media to
the other once the fist fills up. Relay makes indefinite recording possible, as
long as the battery lasts or AC power is available

Multi-Interface (MI)

In addition to the two
standard cold shoes, the proprietary Multi-Interface shoe allows the camera to
talk directly to a range of accessories from Sony without requiring separate
wiring. Compatible accessories include microphones, wireless receivers, and
even flashes 

Note: Multi-Interface
shoe is not compatible with accessories that use the earlier Active Interface
(AIS) shoe

DV Recording

In SD mode, the
HXR-MC2500 records in DV codec - the same format used by MiniDV tape cameras -
and puts the file in an AVI wrapper. This format is supported by most editing
programs, and features less compression than the MPEG-2 SD mode found on many
other cameras

Assignable Lens Ring

The lens ring can be
set to manually control focus, exposure, white balance, iris, or shutter speed
- giving you direct access without having to go through the camera's menu

Time Code

It is possible to set
SMPTE time code or user bit (UB) for multi camera productions or to make it
easier to locate footage in post

BNC Composite Output

The composite output
uses a BNC terminal, which is a locking connector that reduces the risk of
accidentally yanking the cable out during a live broadcast

Optical Steady-Shot
Image Stabilization with Active Mode

In addition to normal
optical image stabilization, Active Mode provides compensation for the sway
that occurs while waking

 Quick AF System

Designed to improve
auto focus accuracy even in low-light conditions

 L Series Battery

Support for Sony's
professional L Series battery line means up to 14 hours of battery life is
possible when using the separately available NPF-970 battery
