  • 1Description

Sporting an ENG form factor and supporting a wide variety of HD and SD formats, the Sony PXW-X500 XAVC 60P 2/3" Camcorder Body features a 2/3" 3CCD sensor block and can capture full HD at up to 120 fps. This item is only the camcorder body only and does not include a lens, viewfinder, mic, or wireless receiver. It is ideal for owners who want to upgrade to a new camcorder body while retaining the other elements of their camera package, such as lens, viewfinder, and mic.

The camcorder supports XAVC, MPEG2, and MPEG4 codecs, recording to SxS or SD media cards. It features 3G-SDI, HDMI, and Composite video outputs, allowing you to incorporate the camcorder into most production pathways, and the camera's built-in wireless slot accepts your compatible wireless receiver. Built into the side of the camcorder is a flip-out LCD viewscreen that displays battery capacity, media capacity, audio levels, and you can check camera playback on the camera. The camera incorporates a variety of professional features including Sony's slow and quick motion, picture cache recording, built-in GPS, a digital extender, and HyperGamma.

The PXW-X500 features three 2/3" Power HAD FX IT CCDs that make up its sensor block.

Exposure
Featuring two integrated filter wheels for exposure and image control, the ND wheel holds four optical filters, a clear, an ND 1/4, ND 1/16, and an ND 1/64. The second wheel controls electronic CC filters allowing you to adjust the camera's white balance by spinning the wheel, as if it used optical filters. Electronic CC filter settings include 3200K, 4300K, 5600K, and 6300K.
Gamma Control
The camera includes Standard Gamma, as well as four different HyperGamma settings and a user selectable setting.

Sony PXW-X500 reviews

PXW-X500 XAVC 60P 2/3" Camcorder Body is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 60p ENG on market We've had this camera for about 5 months now, and just upgraded the firmware to v3. This upgrade vastly improved the record times/down times (It was pretty slow before). We purchased this camera for its 60p functionality, as we shoot sports, and post all of our content online. We also purchased the XAVC option so we could shoot 1080 up to 120fps, which is fantastic! The new XAVC codec also provides high quality with low file size and saves us a ton of space. As far as I'm concerned, this camera can stack up to any ENG on the market.
Date published: 2016-03-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not suitable for ENG work Every control, every button and every menu on this camera passes through onboard computer which is extremely slow. Forget instant feedback. There is none. Any change you make takes one to three seconds to register in the viewfinder. If you ever though using a slow computer would be a good way to shoot news, then this is the camera for you.
