Sony PXW-X400KF//U (PXWX400KF//U, PXW/X400KF//U, pxw-x400kf//u) 2/3-inch Professional XDCAM Camcorder with 16x Zoom Lens


The Sony PXW-X400 is an advanced XDCAM professional shoulder mount camcorder that records a variety of professional broadcast quality formats including XAVC-L at 50p and 59.94p, XAVC-Intra, MPEG HD422, or MPEG HD420 for maximum flexibility in post and integration with existing broadcast workflows.

The camcorder offers exceptional weight balance and low power consumption alongside excellent networking features and high picture quality with a very high signal to noise ration of 62db producing clean images even in low-light conditions. The re-engineered design dramatically reduces the load on the operator’s right-arm. The PMW-X400KF camcorder kit is supplied with a 16x aut-focus zoom lens kit that includes the 3.5-inch LCD viewfinder plus short gun stereo microphone.

The PXW-X400 supports various Sony viewfinders including the QHD LCD CBK-VF02 and optionally available Full HD OLED HDVF-EL30 and HDVF-EL20. The camcorder also offers improved network connectivity, with built-in wireless module, embedded RJ-45 Ethernet 100B-T connector and Near Field Communication (NFC) function (available June 2016) for easy Wi-Fi setup and operation via a mobile or tablet with Sony’s Content Browser Mobile application. SD or HD-SDI (up to 1.5G) input supports pool feed recording.

A 4K/UHD upgrade option will also be available to allow the camera to record in 3840 x 2160 at 50/60p resolution as a separate paid upgrade license.

Features:

  • 3 x 2/3-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors
  • Digital extender offers x2, x3 or x4 operation
  • 4K QFHD (3840x2160) at 50p/59.94p (optional upgrade, sold separately)
  • Full HD XAVC-L at up to 50p and 59.94p
  • MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF
  • RJ-45 Ethernet 100B-T connection
  • Built-in Wi-fi and NFC
