Also a bit light on product introductions—especially smaller camcorders—was Sony’s Sunday press conference. In the company’s defense, it’s unleahed a whole bunch of handheld HDV and XDCAM EX models in the past 12 months, so evidently the company has extracted itself from the industry’s traditional NAB-centric product release cycle.
So, what is new for Sony at NAB 2009? First, the SRW-9000 is the first camcorder based on the HDCAM SR format. It’s intended as a mobile, Steadicam-friendly B-camera to the Sony F23. The SRW-9000 has 2/3in. CCDs and a 14-bit A/D converter. As standard, the camcorder does 4:2:2 10-bit recording at 1080/23.98P, 24P, 25P, 29.97P, and 1080/50i/59.94i. It can also record 4:2:2 1080/50P/59.94P. Full 4:4:4 recording and output is possible via the optional HKSR-9003 RGB 4:4:4 processing board. The SRW-9000 will be available in December; pricing has not yet been determined.Read more...
