SONY PMW-TD300 3D XDCAM EX shoulder camcorder

3D XDCAM EX shoulder camcorder with dual three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors recording Full HD / SD, 3D or 2D

Compact shoulder-mount design professional 3D camcorder

The PMW-TD300 is a professional 3D camcorder with a compact, shoulder-mount design that helps provide a comfortable, stable shooting platform - crucial to creating proper 3D images. Affordable and fully integrated, the PMW-TD300 makes it easier to set up and shoot high quality 3D. Dual three 1/2-inch type Exmor™ CMOS sensors provide high quality 3D recordings at 1920 x 1080 resolution on to SxS cards using the XDCAM EX codec.

  • High sensitivity full HD imaging

    The dual three 1/2-inch type Exmor™ CMOS sensors provide high-quality 3D images with an excellent sensitivity and 1920 x 1080 resolution. The sensor type has been chosen to achieve an ideal balance between high quality and compact design – the camcorder body is a similar size to current 2D models.

  • Fully synchronised operation between left and right lenses

    The newly developed dual lens system allows fully synchronised operation between left and right lenses with high accuracy in focus, zoom, and iris adjustments. With the minimized 45 mm IAD (Inter-Axial Distance) of the dual lens system, the PMW-TD300 offers a wide shooting zone to capture good 3D images, especially for near-side shooting, with its support for a 1.2 m minimum convergence distance. The camcorder also offers an intuitive convergence control with a unique dial feature.

  • Recording to XDCAM EX

    The recording format is identical to that of the highly successful PMW-EX1R, PMW-EX3, and PMW-350/320 Series camcorders. The proven, high-speed, and intuitive XDCAM EX workflow offers seamless integration with leading non-linear editing software.

  • Record in 3D for over six hours

    Left and right images are recorded in synchronisation on two SxS Pro cards separately in two SxS Pro card slots. This allows a long recording duration of over six hours in 3D with four 64 GB cards.

  • Offers 2D recordings

    2D shooting is available for additional production flexibility. With a single SxS Pro card, the camcorder is able to shoot images only through the left lens. In addition, parallel recording onto the left and right cards is useful as a method of redundant shooting in 2D operation. (Images recorded on the left and right cards are slightly different, because different lenses are used.)

  • Multiple viewing capabilities

    The PMW-TD300 is the world’s first 3D shoulder camcorder equipped with a 3.5-inch type colourglasses-free 3D LCD viewfinder. This makes it really easy to view and control the 3D picture directly with the camcorder. Additional to that the user can choose between other viewing options like “Difference”, “Mix” and “Left or Right only”. The camcorder also features HD-SDI out (L/R dual stream, audio and TC embedded) and HDMI out (3D/2D) for viewing on consumer 3D displays. Genlock in and timecode in/out allows easy integration with multi-camera systems.
