The PMW-EX1R succeeds the PMW-EX1 and delivers several enhancements which have been established through customer feedback. These include the capability to perform SD (Standard definition) recording in DVCAM format, Cache Recording, Picture Inversion and more. The EX1R is the ideal solution for customers such as broadcasters, independent videographers and film makers who need exceptional HD picture quality and state-of-the-art workflow from a compact and affordable handheld camcorder.
The XDCAM EX professional product range from Sony is designed to exploit the ultimate high performance of SxS memory cards.

This advanced imaging system consists of three1/2-inch-type Exmorâ"¢ CMOS sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920x1080, to produce images in full HD resolution. In addition, there's a purpose-built Fujinon Professional HD 14x zoom lens and a unique dual focus ring mechanism.
