The file-based recording allows material to be handled with great flexibility in a commonly available IT-based environment for copying, transferring, sharing, and archiving. All these operations are accomplished lossless without any ”re-digitising” process required. File-based data copying allows lossless dubbing of AV content, which can be performed easily on a PC. The file-based recording system also allows for material to be viewed directly on a PC – simply by inserting the SxS PRO memory card into the ExpressCard slot on a PC, or by linking a PC to the XDCAM EX unit via a USB connection. This works in just the same way as a PC reads files on an internal or external drives. The high speed file-based operation and SxS PRO memory card can dramatically improve the efficiency and quality of professional video applications. * On the XDCAM EX camcorder, images are handled as 23.98P and recorded as 59.94i signals via 2-3 pull-down in 1440 x 1080/23.98P (SP) mode. ** This capability is planned to be available with future software upgrade. High-quality Uncompressed Audio Recording In addition to HD video recording, high-quality audio is an equally significant feature in the XDCAM EX products. The XDCAM EX camcorders and deck record and play back high-quality, two-channel 16-bit, 48-kHz linear PCM uncompressed audio. Compression None (Linear PCM) Number of Channels 2 channels Sampling Frequency 48 kHz Quantisation 16 bits/sample Instant-access Thumbnail Search With “Expand” Function Each time a recording is started and stopped on the XDCAM EX products, the video and audio signals are recorded as one clip. During playback, users can cue-up to the next or previous clip simply by pressing the ‘Next’ or ‘Previous’ button, as you would do on a CD or DVD player. Furthermore, thumbnails are automatically generated for each clip as a visual reference, allowing operators to cue-up to a desired scene simply by guiding the cursor to a thumbnail and pressing the ‘Play’ button. For further convenience, the ‘Expand’ function allows one selected clip in the Thumbnail display to be divided into 12 even-time intervals,each with their own thumbnail identifier. This is useful if an operator wanted to quickly search for a particular scene within a lengthy clip. No Accidental Overwriting of Footage, Immediate Recording Start By virtue of recording on flash memory card, the XDCAM EX products make each new recording on an empty area of the card. This is extremely convenient, as camera operators do not have to worry about accidentally recording over good takes, and they don’t have to search through footage for the correct position to start the next recording. In short, it means the camera is always ready for the next shot! Metadata The XDCAM EX products are capable of recording a variety of metadata, which provides a huge advantage when searching for specific data after the initial recording has been made. Information such as production dates, creator names, video format, and camera settings can be saved together with the AV material. This makes it possible to organise and search through all recordings effectively. One particular metadata, called Shot Mark, is a convenient reference that can be added to desired frames to make them easy to recall in subsequent editing process. 5 XDCAM EX A New Generation of HD Recording Systems PMW-EX1 PMW-EX3 The shotgun microphone is an optional accessory. The XDCAM EX series offers a choice of two HD camcorders. One is the PMW-EX1 handheld camcorder with a fixed-type zoom lens. The other is the new PMW-EX3, a semi-shoulder camcorder with an interchangeable lens system. into these camcorders such as “Slow & Quick Motion”, which is also commonly known as “over-cranking” and ”under-cranking”, selectable gamma curves, slow-shutter, interval recording and Picture Profile™ feature.

The lens is equipped with two independent focus wheel mechanisms, which can be switched by sliding the focus ring itself back and forth. When the focus ring is in the front position, the lens works in the same way as a typical auto focus lens on a handheld camcorder. In this case, either manual or auto focus mode can be selected by the AF/MF switch on the lens. On the other hand, when the focus ring is set to the back position, the lens has an absolute focus position, and works in the same way as interchangeable-lens, which professional users are familiar with. Slide Focus Ring The AF (Auto Focus) Assist function of the XDCAM EX camcorders enables operators to manually change focus positions using the focus ring during AF mode. This means that AF reference focus positions can be positively shifted manually to a new position. MF Assist The MF (Manual Focus) Assist function of the XDCAM EX camcorders helps to precisely focus on the target subject when shooting in MF mode. When the MF Assist is enabled, the auto focus is momentarily activated when the user stops adjusting the focus ring. The camera will then finely focus on the subject closest to the focal point of the lens at that time. AF/MF Mode Full AF One-push AF > MF > AF/MF > Expanded Focus > At the touch of a button, the centre of the screen on the LCD monitor and viewfinder of the XDCAM EX camcorders can be magnified to about twice the size, making it easier to confirm focus settings during manual focusing. Full MF Mode Full MF (absolute focus position) > Front: AF/MF Back : Full MF LCD & VF Expanded Focus OFF LCD & VF Expanded Focus ON Three Independent Rings In addition to the unique focus ring, the lens is equipped with independent rings for zoom and iris adjustment; all have physical stops and absolute markings permitting precise adjustments. The location, rotational range and feel are identical to other manual high-end HD lenses. This gives users a high level of familiarity and operational comfort. Simulated Images Selectable Peaking The Peaking function of the XDCAM EX camcorders can help operators to quickly and accurately adjust the camera’s focus by altering the way pictures are displayed on the LCD monitor and viewfinder. It can enhance the outline of the image which the camera focuses on most and changes its colour to make it stand out. Enhance levels can be selected from a choice of “HIGH”,“MIDDLE” and “LOW” and the outline colour from “RED”,“WHITE”,“YELLOW” and “BLUE” Focus Zoom Iris Optical Image Stabiliser To minimise the blurring effect caused by hand-shake, the lens incorporates an optical image stabiliser function that provides highly stable images. Peaking OFF Peaking ON 8 Creative Recording Modes and Settings 23.98P Native Recording Selectable Gamma Curves The XDCAM EX camcorders, members of Sony’s legendary CineAlta family, offer the native 23.98P* recording capability on its handy body. This feature, accompanied with other creative features makes the camcorder ideal for cinema production. The XDCAM EX camcorders offer a wide variety of gamma curves to flexibly handle contrast, and give a specific ‘look’ to an image. In addition to four types of standard gamma curves, the XDCAM EX camcorders provide four types of CINE Gamma (CINE 1, 2, 3, and 4),which are identical to those on high-end CineAlta camcorders. Operators can select the best-suited preset gamma curve depending on scenes. * On the XDCAM EX camcorder, images are handled as 23.98P and recorded as 59.94i signals via 2-3 pull-down in 1440 x 1080/23.98P (SP) mode. CINE Gamma Curves Slow & Quick Motion Function The XDCAM EX camcorders offer a powerful Slow & Quick Motion function – commonly known as over-cranking and undercranking by filmmakers – that enables users to create unique ‘looks’ or slow- and fast-motion special effects. The XDCAM EX camcorders can capture images at frame rates selectable from 1 fps (frame per second) to 60 fps in 720P mode and from 1 fps to 30 fps in 1080P mode, in increments of 1 fps. For example,when viewed at 23.98P, images captured at 60 fps will appear 2.5 times slower than normal. Conversely, images captured at four fps will appear six times faster than normal. With the Slow & Quick Motion function of this camcorder, images are recorded natively with no padded frames and at full resolution. The obtained quality of the slow- and fast-motion images is extremely high from 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. 123 58 59 60 123 22 23 24 25 26 27 The XDCAM EX camcorders offer an Interval Recording function that records one frame at pre-determined intervals. This is convenient for shooting over long periods of time, and also when creating special effects of extremely quick motion. 1 sec Frame Recording is a unique feature of the XDCAM EX camcorders that is especially useful for clay animation shooting. Using this function, images for pre-determined frames are recorded every time the Record button is pressed. 1 sec 58 59 60 123 58 59 60 2.5 times slow motion 123 Interval Recording Function Frame Recording Function Slow Motion Mechanism Recording 60fps 1 sec CINE1 CINE2 CINE3 CINE4 46 47 48 49 50 59 60 1 2 11 12 13 14 Playback 24fps Shutter Angle Settings In addition to traditional electronic shutter speed controls adjustable in fractions of a second, the XDCAM EX camcorders also have a “shutter angle” control – which is familiar to filmmakers. By setting the shutter adjustment mode to “angle”, the XDCAM EX camcorders automatically set the proper exposure time, based on the selected frame rate and shutter angle. Slow Shutter Function The XDCAM EX camcorders offer a Slow Shutter function for capturing clear images in low-light environments. The Slow Shutter function not only increases camera sensitivity but also produces a special blurring effect when shooting a moving object, for enhanced shooting creativity. The shutter speed is selectable from 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, 16-, 32-, and 64- frame accumulation periods. 9 Operational Versatility Picture Profile Feature Shot A Shot A time Linear transition T ransition Shot Transition function Shot B Shot A time SOFT STOP Transition slows toward the end T ransition The Shot Transition™ function of the XDCAM EX camcorders, with a simple push of a button, allows for smooth, precise and repeatable automatic scene transitions to occur. The operator can program the duration and select from three transition profiles: Linear, Soft Stop, or Soft Transition. any lens parameter such as the start and end settings for zoom, focus, and/or camera parameters such as white balance and gain can be programmed to transition in unison. It works by automatically calculating the intermediate values during the scene transition. The Shot Transition function can be triggered manually or synchronised with the camera’s REC start function. The transition progress can be checked on a bar graph on the LCD monitor. In addition, a start timer function is also available for the Shot Transition function, helping to prevent operators from missing a shot. This function is very useful when precise, simple or complex changes to the lens or camera settings are required during the scene – for example,when changing the focus from the background to the foreground of a scene. Shot B T ransition The Picture Profile feature of the XDCAM EX camcorders allow camera operators to easily call up customised picture-tonal settings to suit particular shooting conditions, rather than having to readjust the camera each time – giving users greater operational efficiency. Up to six different picture-tonal settings such as the parameters of matrix, colour correction, detail, gamma, and knee can be saved in the memory. These settings are displayed on the LCD monitor at the touch of a button. Shot B Time Shot A Shot B time SOFT TRANSITION Transition starts and finishes slowly Brightness-level Display The average brightness level of the centre of a frame can be displayed on the LCD monitor and viewfinder of the PMWEX1 camcorder, or on the LCD viewfinder of the PMW-EX3 camcorder as a percentage. This is useful when a waveform monitor is not available for shooting. Depth-of-field Indicator A Depth-of-field graphic can be displayed on the LCD monitor and viewfinder of the XDCAM EX camcorders to help camera operators easily read the actual depth-of-field of a scene, and assist setting up the lens and exposure for optimum depth-offield control.
