Sony has announced the HXR-MC2500, a new addition to its High Definition (HD) range of memory camcorders. The HXR-MC2500 offers performance and functionality in the digital era, with a variety of features necessary for serious videographers, and at an affordable price point.

The HXR-MC2500 has several enhancements over Sony’s existing HXR-MC1500 camera model, including an improved Exmor R CMOS sensor and new features such as a built-in LED light, OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi functionality, DV memory recording and a Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe.

These enhancements make the HXR-MC2500 an ideal, cost-effective solution for event videographers such as wedding videographers, who desire strong low-light performance, high picture quality, operational flexibility and reliability.

Vivian Saldanha, business head - content creation, Sony Professional Solutions MEA, said: “The HXR-MC2500 is a prime example of how we’ve combined advanced imaging technologies with a host of operational features that the market today needs. Our customers now enjoy a more comprehensive product offering from Sony, with this model providing practical functions that professionals need, such as wireless connectivity and longer recording time.”

A 32GB internal flash memory storage system on board the HXR-MC2500 enables longer duration recording of more than 150 minutes. When Sony’s L-Series InfoLithium battery NP-F970 (optional) is used, the HXR-MC2500 is capable of continuous long recording of up to 14 hours - a critical feature for occasions where operators may not have the luxury to stop the camera, such as during the filming of wedding ceremonies or other live events.

Other features include: a 26.8mm Wide-Angle Lens, DV Memory, Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, BNC Composite Terminal, Time Code and User Bit implementation.

The HXR-MC2500 will be available in October 2014.
