IT Friendly
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-digitizing” 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
IIn 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.

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
organize 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.

Unique Focus Operation
Unique Focus Operation – Professional
Manual Focus and Auto Focus
The lens adopts a newly developed and unique focus ring
mechanism, which offers two types of manual focus, plus an
auto focus operation. 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
Optical Image Stabilizer
To minimize the blurring effect caused by hand-shake, the
lens incorporates an optical image stabilizer function that
provides highly stable images.
AF Assist
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.
Expanded Focus
At the touch of a button, the center 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.

Slow & Quick Motion Function
The XDCAM EX camcorders offer a powerful Slow & Quick
Motion function – commonly known as over-cranking and
under-cranking 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.
