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.

Crisp, clear 4K video and still images, even in near darkness

  • With an ultra-high sensitivity of ISO 409600*, the UMC-S3C captures crisp, clear 4K/29.97P/25P colour video and low-noise 12 megapixel still images in minimum illumination conditions of 0.004 lx.
  • The 35 mm full-frame Exmor sensor captures significantly more incident light than conventional cameras, while the image processing extremely enhances the high sensitivity with very low noise. Area-specific noise reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas like blue skies) to efficiently reduce noise and improve image quality. Detail reproduction technology helps to accurately depict details with a more natural sense of dimension.
  • Standard ISO 100–102400, expandable to 50–409600

Greater shooting flexibility with choice of E-mount FE lenses

  • The camera’s versatility in a wide range of shooting applications is enhanced by compatibility with a wide range of interchangeable E-mount FE lenses (available separately)*. These maximise the performance of the 35 mm full-frame sensor, maintaining high resolution across the entire image area from centre to edges.
  • Compatible E mount FE lenses include the SEL35F14Z (35 mm, F1.4), SEL35F28 (35 mm, F2.8), SEL28F20 (28 mm, F2.0), and SEL55F18Z (55 mm, F1.8).

Small and light enough to go anywhere

  • Ideal for use in space-limited situations, the compact camera measures approximately 104.0 mm x 84.0 mm x 48.0 mm (4 1/8 inches x 3 3/8 inches x 1 15/16 inches). With a light weight of approximately 390 g (13.8 oz), it’s ideal for installation in mobile environments such as vehicles and robots.

Easy operation even on the move

  • 4K video or still images can be recorded internally to an SD card, or fed via HDMI to an external recorder or monitor, even when the camera is on the move. The camera’s multi terminal can connect to Micro USB-compatible devices, allowing remote control of functions such as zoom and shutter release, Rec Start/Stop, and Zoom using widely-available consumer accessories.

High quality internal recording

  • The camera can continuously record 4K/29.97P/25P colour video in the XAVC S format at up to 100 Mbps, and 12 megapixel colour still images in JPEG or RAW format at 14 bits to an SD memory card. For example, a 64 GB SD card can record up to 125 minutes of continuous 4K footage with standard quality (29.97P/60 Mbps).
  • Recorded video files can be reviewed on a wide range of ordinary PC media players compatible with the MP4 format such as Windows Media Player.
  • With an ultra-high sensitivity of ISO 409600* and internal recording, this compact 4K video camera is ideal for a wide range of remote shooting applications in almost total darkness.
  • Standard ISO 100–102400, expandable to 50–409600
  • Supports Micro USB compatible devices
