Sony EX3 Camcorder


sony-ex3

The Sony EX3 camera is an incredibly popular renter for shooting presentations, events, and documentary-style work. It uses Sony’s XDCAM-EX intraframe codec for broadcast quality video in a reasonable file size. It is ergonomically designed for shoulder mounted use, or can be used with a tripod.  We include the standard Fujinon 5.8-81.2mm f/1.9 lens. The EX3 also supports over and undercranking, for slow motion and timelapse effects.

The camera can record resolutions up to 1080i60 or 1080p30, and can output HD video over HD-SDI. It also fully supports timecode and genlock, for professional-level broadcast applications. If you require 50 Mbps or higher bitrates, we suggest using an external recorder, or using a camera like the Sony Z100 or Sony FS7.The Sony EX3 offers a few advantages over the Sony EX1, including a removable lens, better ergonomics, and an improved LCD. It uses the same sensor and same picture profiles, so color matching between EX1s and EX3s is quite easy.

Included in the kit is the PMW-EX3 body, Fujinon 5.8-81.2 mm lens, lens hood, two BP-u30 batteries, Sony charger/AC adapter with power cable, EX3 eyepiece, and 128GB of media (enough for more than eight hours of recording in highest quality).
