Sony PDW-850 (PDW850, PDW/850, PD-W8-50, pwd-850) XDCAM HD422 Ultimate Professional Disc Camcorder
Successor to both the PDW-700 and PDW-F800, the PDW-850 combines the best of both these models into one model featuring lighter mass and lower power consumption. The latest triple PowerHAD FX CCD sensors have been included and the camera will record in both HD and SD formats including MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps onto ready-to-archive and robust Professional Disc media.
Sensitivity is high at F12 at 50i and there is an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 62dB. The PDW-850 features a high quality colour QHD 960 x 540 LCD side monitor, while also providing an HDVF interface to allow the latest optional colour and monochrome viewfinders to be attached. The ergonomically well balanced camcorder now fully supports the CBK-WA100 wireless adapter, enabling proxy recording and proxy/high resolution content transfer via Wi-Fi/3G/4G/LTE, as well as Planning Metadata management (with a future upgrade). Ethernet, USB interfaces and GPS are included. The camcorder weighs only 4.2 kg (body only), lighter than the PDW-700, and has lower power consumption compared to its predecessors. The PDW-850 can also be configured in a live production system by docking the CA-FB70 fibre adapter or CA-TX70 digital triax adapter CA-TX70 to the standard 50-pin interface.
