HDC-5500 / Multi-format portable camera


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Featuring three 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensors with global shutter technology, this multi-format portable camera delivers high-speed image capture with no ‘jello effect,’ for production of high-definition live content such as concerts and sports broadcasts. Making the topside flat allows greater freedom for attaching large viewfinders for a broad range of filming styles. Its retractable arm for optical viewfinders is stored on the inside to free up more right-side visibility for photographers. The sturdy, lightweight magnesium alloy and carbon body, plus its shape and electronics layout, help manage cables more easily for smoother operation.
