Sony UMC-S3C//AC (UMC/S3C//AC, UMC_S3C//AC, UMC S3C//AC) High-Sensitivity UHD 4K Video Camera
The UMC-S3C can capture smooth 4K/29.97P/25P colour video in almost pitch-black conditions, from night-time starlight to poorly lit rooms. It’s extremely compact size and on-board recording capability make the camera ideal for remote PoV (Point of View), documentaries, wildlife and live action shooting, plus challenging environments where cabling or space are limited.
With the highest sensitivity in its class with minimum illumination of 0.004 lx, ISO 409600, the camera is ideal for environments where the human eye struggles to see. Extraordinary low-light imaging performance is delivered by the highly sensitive 35 mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, advanced signal processing and interchangeable E-mount FE lenses. This UMC-S3C records crisp, clear 4K/29.97P/25P colour video using the XAVC S format at up to 100 Mbps, as well as very low-noise 12 megapixel colour still images.
The high-speed electronic shutter can capture blur-less colour video of written characters, numbers and human faces. The camera is also equipped with a mechanical shutter for extremely sharp still images, even when there’s movement in a scene. A choice of interchangeable E-mount FE lenses (available separately) offers the flexibility to adjust the camera’s viewing angle to suit a wide range of applications.
Long-duration video and still images can be recorded to the camera’s on-board SD memory card or output to an external recorder or monitor via HDMI. For example: with a 64 GB memory card, users can record up to 125 minutes of 4K footage with standard quality (29.97P/60 Mbps).
Weighing approximately 390g (13.8 oz), the UMC-S3C is ideal for installation in mobile platforms like vehicles and robots. The camera can be controlled via multi terminal**, remote controller or a PC and compatible software.
