The Sony HXR-MC2000E Shoulder Mount AVCHD PAL Camcorder features a 1/4" Exmor R CMOS sensor and a Sony G Lens with a fast f/1.8-3.4 aperture and a 12x zoom ratio. The HXR-MC2000E can record HD 1080i or 720p video on 64GB of internal memory or via the media card slot, which accepts Memory Stick PRO or SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The AVCHD compression format uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, and variable bit rate modes allow users to prioritize image quality or file size according to their needs.

A user configurable manual lens ring can be assigned to adjust a range of settings, like focus, iris, white balance, and exposure controls. The lens's Optical SteadyShot function is supplemented by Sony's 3-Way Shake-Canceling technology, which adds electronic roll stability. The ergonomically designed handle contains a record button and zoom control. There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle.

The HXR-MC2000E can also record SD video in the MPEG-2 format, which is the same compression codec as standard DVD video discs. If your project will end up on DVD, then using this format can save you production time and maintain the original image quality. When the camcorder is connected to the optional DVDirect Express DVD writer (sold separately) via a USB cable, a single press of the One Touch Disk button is all it takes to burn video footage directly onto a DVD, without using a PC.

1/4" Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
The HXR-MC2000E's Exmor R CMOS sensor is rated for minimum illumination of 3 LUX. Sony's imaging system incorporates back-illuminated technology that doubles sensitivity compared to conventional CMOS sensors. Autofocus technology is also enhanced to perform better in low-light.
Fast f/1.8-3.4 Lens with 12x Zoom Ratio
The Sony G Lens features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8-3.4 a 12x zoom ratio. The focal length is 2.9-34.8mm, which renders a 35mm equivalent of approximately 29.8-357.6mm in 16:9 recording modes.
HD 1080/50i and 720/50p Resolution
The HXR-MC2000E features several different recording modes. AVCHD FX mode records 50i frames of 1920 x 1080 resolution video at 24Mbps. Variable bit rates, as low as 5Mbps allow users to conserve file space. Progressive scan video can be recorded at 50 frames per second with 720 resolution.
Solid State Memory
Video can be recorded to 64GB of internal memory or to the media card slot, which accepts Memory Stick PRO or SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
AVCHD Compression Format
The AVCHD compression format uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, and variable bit rate modes allow users to prioritize image quality or file size according to their needs. Most NLE software programs support AVCHD input and editing.
User Configurable Manual Lens Ring
Using the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority. Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect.
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode
Sony's stabilization technology realizes images that are up to 10x steadier than conventional Optical SteadyShot images. As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabilizer works together with its optical counterpart to reduce camera shake. This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that sometimes occurs when shooting while walking.
MPEG-2 for SD Recording Format
The HXR-MC2000E can also record SD video in the MPEG-2 format, which is the same compression codec as standard DVD video discs.
DVDirect and Direct Copy
When the camcorder is connected to the optional DVDirect Express DVD writer (sold separately) via a USB cable, a single press of the One Touch Disk button is all it takes to burn video footage directly onto a DVD, without using a PC.
