The camera body incorporates a 3.45" flip out LCD screen and can accept optional B&W or Color Viewfinders.

The camera is well suited to capture breaking news as it records approximately 8 seconds of video in standby mode, so you can record about 8 seconds of video before pressing the record button. For long developing news situations, you can record in loop mode, letting the camera record to your data cards and then start recording over allocated space on the cards. It records using codecs that include AVC-Intra and 10-bit AVC-LongG50/25 and supports Dual Codec recording with the Full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. Incorporated image control tools include: CAC (Chromatic Aberration Compensation) when using a CAC compatible lens, DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch and a choice of 7 Gamma selections. The camera features digital zoom, an electronic shutter, two rotating optical filters, focus assist, Zebra, Y-Get, a simplified Waveform and Vectorscope display, and five user assignable function buttons. The camera features 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, allowing you to pass feeds from and to other cameras, and a slot for optional two channels wireless receivers. A wired network port allows you to remotely control the camera using an optional studio remote panel. The built-in USB 3.0 port allows high-speed file copying to compatible storage media of 2TB or less directly from the camera without requiring a computer.

Note! Dual Codec recording is an optional function.

The built-in 8.76 cm (3.45 inches) color LCD serves as a monitor when shooting, displays menus, and provides Waveform and Vectorscope displays. After recording, clips selected from clip and thumbnail displays can be played or deleted (single or multiple clips). In addition to VTR-like pause, fast-forward, and rewind functions, multiple clips can be consecutively played in any desired sequence for transmitting data from the shooting location.
Optional color and black & white viewfinders are available for this camera.
The camcorder records at interlaced compatible frame rates, allowing your video to play back on progressive and interlaced HD video systems, as well as be easily converted to play back on SD video systems.
2.2MP, 2/3-type MOS image sensor achieves F12 (at 59.94 Hz) or F13 (at 50 Hz) sensitivity and 60 dB signal-to-noise ratio.
The camera supports two full sized P2 cards and two microP2 sized cards, providing you the flexibility to use your P2 cards or if you wish, migrate to the microP2 format.
AVC-LongG50/25 and AVC-Intra100/50 codecs provided as standard features. AVC-LongG50/25 codecs achieve 10 bit/4:2:2 image quality at a data rate of approximately 50/25 Mb/s.
The camera supports 23.98, 29.97, 59.94 frame rates, as well as 50p, 50i, and 25p.
The frame rates of 23.98, 25, and 29.97 can be recorded as native frame rates, or as a pulldown recording which interpolates the data as a 60/50i recording.
You can select to record 23.98 (24) fps with a 24PA (pulldown advanced) recording scheme, which alters the 3:2 pulldown sequence from 3:2:3:2 to 3:2:2:3 field order, which makes it less computing intensive to convert the pulldown sequence to a native 23.98 (24) fps sequence for editing. Please note that the 24PA pulldown sequence can result in jumpy looking images during normal playback and require that your footage be imported into your NLE correctly for viewing/editing.
Simultaneous recording to two media cards creates an instant backup of your recording.
The camera is capable of recording and playing 1080/59.94p and 1080/50p progressive images (AVC-Intra100 and AVC-LongG25 modes).
