Sony PMW200 – onboard 4:2:2 50Mb/s recording!

The Sony PMW-200 camera is basically the replacement of the ‘game changing’ EX1 and a lot better in many ways. Main point being it records at a 50Mbps data rate which gives 4:2:2 colour space via it’s internal SxS cards. This means it’s the cheapest camera option available that will give you FULL BROADCAST HD spec pictures. No more external recorders needed!
