Sony makes 4K more accessible, more versatile and even more impactful with this trio of palm-sized cameras.

i Productions will dazzle with the visual power of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and the detail of 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution.

ii You’ll bring back great images under less-than-great lighting conditions with Sony’s back-illuminated 1” (1.0-type) Exmor RS® sensor.

iii Since focus is even more critical in large-sensor 4K production, we endowed these cameras with the speed and accuracy of Fast Hybrid Auto Focus.

These models even excel in multi-camera live production when connected to Sony’s MCX-500 switcher and RM-30BP controller. In short, Sony puts major production power in the palm of your hand.
