Sony HXR-MC88 Full HD Camcorder is the perfect choice for traveling videography because of its lightweight design, 14.2MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS image sensor, BIONZ X image processor, Full HD 1080p60 video recording & 48x digital zoom!
HXR-MC88 comes with a single 14.2MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor that helps you capture beautiful background bokeh effects. Further, this sensor is also instrumental in producing noise and blur-reduced images due to additional light entering it. With such imaging capability, the resulting image is clear, crips, and steady no matter how well-illuminated the setting.
Along with the powerful sensor, you also get the advanced BIONZ X image processor that captures full pixel readout eliminating pixel binning. This feature further ensures that the captured image is sharp and crisp.
Our Take on the Sony HXR-MC88 Full HD Camcorder:
Enhancing imaging capabilities further, you also get the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens with a 29mm-equivalent focal length. It also offers 12x optical zoom extendable to 24x using the Clear Image Zoom functionality. Also, the camcorder is compatible with a separately available digital extender, which can double the zoom from 24x to 48x. All these features make the camcorder the ideal choice for wildlife and other distant photography applications.
Further, image composition is as much of a joy as is the rendered image. You get a 3.5" 1.5 million dot LCD, and a high-resolution OLED viewfinder that ensures that the image delivered contains the desired brightness, contrast, and response, eliminating any color-breaking phenomenon.
Along with outstanding illumination, the sensor also offers Full HD 1080p60videos at 28fps. To make it easier to achieve professional-grade quality, you also get intuitive manual controls and built-in 6-step ND filters that make maneuvering very simple so you can capture every moment during live events without having to look for settings through the menu. Even though the camcorder enhances the captures, it preserves natural colors and delivers true-to-life imagery, making shooting with it a joy.
Its built-in neutral density filter wheel offers positions for clear to up to 6 stops. With such functionality, you can get a shallow depth of field without any additional ND filter.
The camera possesses an ergonomic and lightweight design, making it highly travel-friendly, and its intuitive controls offer an easy-to-use shooting experience. You can adjust focus, zoom, and iris through these manual control rings.
Along with functionality, you get dual SDXC and SDHC compatible storage card slots and a Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) or PRO-HG Duo slot. The relay mode allows you to switch cards when storage is full, and SIMUL mode allows you to simultaneously record the footage on both cards to create multiple backups.
With its two start/stop buttons, you can independently start or stop recording on different memory cards in the Simul mode.
