Sony's PXW-X320 XDCAM Solid State Memory Camcorder with Fujinon 16x Servo Zoom Lens with 50-Pin Camera Interface includes the PXW-X320 and the CBK-CE01 50-pin camera interface. The PXW-X320 supersedes and improves on many of the features of the PMW-320K. Designed for the professional market, this ENG/EFP-style camera incorporates three 1/2"-type full-HD EXMOR CMOS sensors, solid state SxS workflow, advanced features, and shoulder-mount ergonomics. The PXW-X320 can record 10-bit video and 24-bit audio using the XAVC codec, and provides the options of XAVC Intra, XAVC Long, MPEG HD422, MPEG HD, MPEG IMX, and DVCAM for those requiring in-camera SD video recording.
The camera records a variety of frame rates from 23.98 native up to 59.94p. It features both genlock and timecode, and fits into an XDCAM EX workflow. It features a viewfinder with 960 x 540 resolution, 3D noise reduction for improved image quality, flash band reduction, a customizable user menu, and 2 x SDI outputs. The camera records to 2 x SxS media card slots, and can support a variety of media using optional adapters. You can also record HD using MPEG HD420 and SD using DVCAM to an SD media card slot.
The CBK-CE01 camera adapter and digital extender provides the 50-pin interface required to use your camera in a studio configuration when used with an optional XDCA-55 unit. The CBK-CE01 is required to add the digital extender functionality to the PXW-X320.

Slow & Quick Motion Function
With the Slow & Quick Motion function of this camcorder, images are recorded natively without interpolating the frames. This means the quality of the slow- and fast-motion images is extremely high and incomparable to those created in the editing process. In addition, these slow- and quick-motion images can be played back immediately after shooting, without using any converters or processing on non-linear editing systems.
