Sony PDW F800 XDCAM

The Sony F800 is the most widely-used shoulder mount camera in Britain. It meets all broadcast HD tech-specs (4:2:2 resolution) and records to optical disc, giving users all the benefits of shooting on tape while shooting tapeless.

  • Shoots to optical disc – treat the discs as your tape in terms of storage, archiving etc.
  • Everything you would expect from a broadcast shoulder mount camera – in-built ND filters, automatic colour¬†temperatures switching (3200K/4300K/5600K/6300K) and a B4 mount for Hi-Def lenses
  • Cache recording – up to 30 seconds can be recorded onto the internal memory before you press the record button.

Sony’s top-end XDCAM HD422 Series is popular around the world for its file-based recording to high-capacity and highly reliable Professional Disc media. Thanks to its use of the MPEG HD422 codec, the XDCAM HD422 Series records high-quality video and audio with an image resolution of 1920 x 1080 and eight-channel 24-bit uncompressed audio.

The PDW-F800 offers multi-format recording flexibility as standard – including SD recording and a frame rate of 23.98P in 1080 mode. Enhanced functions, such as Slow & Quick Motion (over-crank and under-crank recording), make the PDW-F800 ideal for cinema and TV drama productions, natural history, documentary, sport as well as ENG applications.
