Making a professional impression.
The HXR-MC2500 provides a professional look and shooting style which is ideal for weddings, corporate communications or education facilities. While light and easily portable, its full Shoulder Mount design means your clients immediately know you mean business.
Workflow flexibility is enhanced by the ability to record directly onto a removable memory card or a 32GB internal flash memory in high definition or standard definition. With this combination of the internal flash memory and memory card allows recording functions such as 'Relay' and 'Simultaneous' are available. 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– perfect for those occasions where you don’t want to stop recording, such as weddings or business conferences.
The HXR-MC2500 is designed to be the ideal, entry-level match for almost any type of non-linear workflow. It’s an exceptionally cost-effective production package for DVD or Blu-ray content, one that’s flexible enough to express your creative ideas and meet your client’s requirements.
Wi-Fi/NFC functions for seamless connection to smartphones - The HXR-MC2500 can connect to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets via a Wi-Fi connection, enabling monitoring and remote control functions such as start/stop recording, zoom control, iris control and touch auto focus. Furthermore, it is also NFC-capable (Near Field Communications) to allow easy, one-touch wireless connections to compatible mobile devices.
Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe - The MI Shoe expands your options to use accessories without cables, such as the UWP-D11 wireless microphone receiver and XLR audio input by XLR adapter.
Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters - Using the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority. Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background. Shutter-speed can also be controlled to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight etc.
Ideal for long event shooting with 32GB internal flash memory and low power consumption - A 32GB internal flash memory enables longer duration recording of more than 150 minutes. In addition, by using a combination of the internal flash memory and memory card in the MS/SD slot, recording functions such as 'Relay' and 'Simultaneous' for backup can be available. 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. This is a critical feature for important occasions where operators may not have the luxury to stop the camera, such as during the filming of wedding ceremonies or other live events.
Wide-angle G Lens - The HXR-MC2500 comes equipped with a sophisticated G Lens that incorporates Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control, delivering exceptional performance on a par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The HXR-MC2500 itself is optimised to perfectly complement the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony’s famous image processing technology. This improves picture performance whether zooming in on the action, or getting a perspective on the big picture with a 26.8mm lens offering the widest angles in this class of camera, which enables wide-angle shooting even in tight spaces.
Highly-sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor and built-in LED light - The HXR-MC2500 is capable of shooting clearly even in low-light or indoor environments. Its highly-sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor adopts a back-illuminated technology that enables the image sensor to utilise incidental light more efficiently, helping the videographer to achieve rich image quality even during low-light shooting situations. Moreover, the HXR-MC2500 is also equipped with a convenient built-in LED light for valuable extra illumination when needed.
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode - This feature ensures smooth movement while recording footage in many challenging shooting situations. In addition, Sony’s innovative 3-Way Shake-Cancelling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. This latest version of image stabilisation technology realises images that are up to 10x steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images. As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabiliser starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake. This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that commonly occurs when shooting while walking.
Wide angle view, high contrast OLED viewfinder and 3-inch wide LCD pane - The HXR-MC2500 is equipped with an OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, offering a high resolution of approximately 1.44 million dots with high contrast levels. Sony’s proprietary viewfinder technologies allow for better tonal reproduction and more detailed picture information when shooting. In addition, there is also the built-in 3-inch wide high resolution LCD panel (approximately 0.92 million dots) for crisp and bright views.
Ergonomic Handle & Controls - The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle, which allow for the attachment of two different types of accessories.
AVCHD – Ideal for Memory Recording - AVCHD is a highly efficient data compression format which greatly reduces memory requirements, maximising the benefits of file-based recording with high image quality in a small file size. This is made possible by the exceptionally efficient MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec at 50/60p@28mbps. Many consumer electronic devices already support AVCHD playback, and more are on the way. Numerous major NLE software programmes feature AVCHD input and editing. The HXR-MC2500’s Standard Definition recording format is in DV memory format.
Additional professional features - A BNC Composite Terminal enables use of BNC cables for a professional secure connection, which prevents cable disconnect during critical shooting occasions such as live recording.
TC/UB Implementation: Time Code and User Bit are included for situations like multi-camera shoots

The three inch led display is bright and sharp. The Oled tru-finder is also excellent. There are many presets and auto modes and manually controlled functions if you need to be especially creative. Sound seems quite good, but a let down is the mic picks up the vibrations of hand movements around the camera body, which slightly lets the camera down with quite a plasticky feel, although it looks the business.
The camera is quite big and lends itself to being operated on a sturdy tripod. The eye viewfinder works better this way as being mounted on your shoulder there is no side ways adjustment to pull it further out from the camera body.
Video quality is great in all the available settings 1920x1080i and P 50fps and 25fps (PAL in the UK) 200x digital zoom works well
Storage to SD card and 32Gb of internal memory. Only one slot for an SD card or Sonys own version.
There are two cold shoes and one active hotshoe for Sonys' adapter for XLR mics as the mic supplied plugs in via 3.5mm stereo jack. The built in led light is very handy, but its limited illumination would probably be only for closer shots.
A nice little extra is being able to remotely connect via a smart phone app. The wirelessly transmitted image suffers with latency, but I will find this useful, so to me not just a gimmick.
Two year guarantee once you register with Sonys' Pro registration on line. There is an option to extend for a third year, and I would assume this would be at a cost. I choose to insure my electronic products elsewhere, so did not investigate Sonys' extended warranty.
To sum up. This is a great looking camera, packed with features. Great video quality, but let down by vibration through the camera body picked up by the mic. The body is a bit plasticky. The eye piece could be set a bit further out from the camera body for a more comfortable shoulder mounted application. The tripod screw thread looks plastic, but not sure if this is the case.
I am looking forward to using my camera, and for the money, (A little over a £1000) it is featured packed.
I have given it 4 stars as not perfect, but what lets it down does not let the video quality down. I will fit a shock mount to the front cold shoe to mount the mic to reduce unwanted noise although I record sound sound separately and sync it in post.
There are lot more features I have not covered at the moment. I will update this review as time goes by.
This camera has many manual features that will help produce professional video movies. Manual Focus, Manual Iris, Manual Shutter speed. These all are very useful to a home movie maker and used along side a good editing suite, a professional production can be produced.
The full HD 1920x1080 50fps has very fine detail, probably better than the what the human eye can see naturally. This can be a little harsh I find, so some refining in the editing process for me is required. Saying this you can use the footage straight from the camera if editing is not your thing.
Excellent value for money.
