The SRW-9000 HDCAM-SR Camcorder w/S35 PL Mount & 4:4:4 B&H Kit outfits Sony's next-generation 24P camcorder with a number of enhancements, starting with the HKSR-90PL Upgrade Kit, which provides the ability to swap out the camera's 2/3" 3CCD image block with a Super 35mm CCD sensor and PL mount. This brings the camera's performance level up to that of the flagship Sony F35, while making it compatible with the full range of professional PL-mount cine lenses.
Another upgrade is the HKSR-9003 4:4:4 Processing Board, which provides full-bandwidth digital RGB processing for the most demanding professional productions. When combined with the included HKSR-9002 Picture Cache Board, this allows the SRW-9000 to record 4:4:4 images at frame rates of 1 to 60 fps. An HKSR-9001 HD-SDI Expansion Board, meanwhile, provides dual-link HD-SDI output, allowing your 4:4:4 signals to be recorded and monitored to a range of devices. And the HDVF-C30WR 2.7" Color Viewfinder uses advanced image processing to make sure you properly see those images before committing them to posterity.
Breathtaking HDCAM SR Picture Quality
The SRW-9000 is a one-piece HDCAM-SR camcorder that delivers full HD resolution images and employs a 2/3"-type IT CCD. Combining this CCD with a high-precision 14-bit A/D converter and digital signal processing, the camcorder is able to capture and reproduce stunning-quality 1080/60P and 1080/50P images with low noise and high sensitivity.
Upgradable Imaging and Storage Options
The SRW-9000 is the first camera to be based on a new high-end modular camcorder platform that allows different imaging and storage blocks to be fitted. A Super 35mm CCD sensor and SR Memory solid state recording pack options are already planned as part of a strategy of continual development. Even if you buy the very first SRW-9000, you can be confident of its upgrade path to meet future requirements.
Full-bandwidth RGB 4:4:4 Digital Image Capturing
With the addition of the optional HKSR-9003 RGB 4:4:4 Processing Board, the SRW-9000 offers a full-bandwidth digital 4:4:4 high-definition Red, Green, and Blue signal processing and output capability for highly demanding picture productions. The SRW-9000 also offers S-LOG Gamma with the same optional board, allowing users to flexibly adjust images in the post-production process.
Variable Frame Rate Image Capturing
By adding the HKSR-9002 Picture Cache Board, the SRW-9000 is capable of recording images at a variable frame rate from 1 fps to 60 fps in 4:2:2 mode. And by combining the HKSR-9002 with the HKSR-9003, it can perform the same function even in 4:4:4 mode.
Exceptional Ergonomics for Filmmakers
The SRW-9000's chassis is a development of the film-style ergonomics Sony designed for the F23/F35, utilizing a completely different layout compared to the traditional broadcast TV approach of other Sony cameras. For camera operators used to working with film, the SRW-9000 makes it easy to adapt.
Outstanding Operational Mobility
The SRW-9000's rugged one-piece body, with self-contained, ultra-reliable HDCAM SR recording deck, offers incredible operational mobility both indoors and outside. At the same time, Sony's BP-GL Series of on-board batteries can be attached to further extend shooting times.
Future-proof and Customizable
The SRW-9000 is designed to accommodate the changes necessary to ensure today's best camcorder is also tomorrow's. Its state-of-the-art 2/3" sensor can be upgraded with the same Super 35mm sensor used in Sony's F35, while the internal HDCAM SR tape deck can be swapped out for a revolutionary solid state unit.
HDVF-C30WR 2.7" Color Viewfinder
This 2.7" HD viewfinder makes a fitting companion to the SRW-9000. Using an advanced image processor, it combines enhanced focus-assist features with improved luminance and a selectable color temperature (5600K/6500K/9300K). The HDVF-C30WR provides the precise focusing and natural color reproduction needed for professional applications such as moviemaking, TV, and commercial production.
Versatile Gamma Settings
These include unique S-LOG Gamma (HKSR-9003), HyperGamma, and customizable gamma curve (standard).
Picture Cache Re-recording Capability
Everything captured up to a maximum of three seconds before the REC button is pressed is recorded to HDCAM SR tape when the camcorder is in stand-by mode.
When using the HKSR-9001, additional dual-link HD-SDI outputs and an additional AUX input port are provided, allowing the camcorder to be connected with an external audio multiplexing device.
Picture Cache Recording Capability
Everything captured for a maximum of three seconds before the REC button is pressed is recorded to HDCAM-SR tape when the camcorder is in stand-by mode.
Wide Range of Accessories
The SRW-9000 is compatible with a wide range of accessories for the HDW-F900, F23, SRW-1, and from ARRI.
