LATEST SONY CAMCORDER
19 June 2014
Sony has launched the PXW-X160, the latest addition to the Sony XDCAM Series of professional camcorders. The PXW-X160 features three 1/3” Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors and a newly developed 25x optical zoom G-Lens that extends from a 26mm wide angle. It can record in XAVC Intra and Long GOP, enabling 10-bit sampling for high-definition recordings with rich tonal expression, as well as MPEG HD422 at 50 Mbps, a format widely preferred by today’s broadcasters and production houses. It can also record in MPEG HD420 at 35 Mbps, AVCHD™ and DV formats. The PXW-X160 is a follow-up to the Sony HXR-NX5P and PMW-150 models. The PXW-X160 differs from the PXW-X180 announced at this year’s NAB show, in the omission of features such as wireless functionality, NFC and GPS, effectively lowering the price. Both the Sony PXW-X160 and PXW-X180 are expected to be available in Australia and New Zealand from September this year.
