The PMW-500 is Sony Professional’s first XDCAM HD422 Camcorder which records onto SxS cards. The cameras has the same high specs as the PDW-700 and PDW-F800 - it delivers 4:2:2 colour sampling at 50 mbps. The camera supports full-HD 422 50-Mbps MXF record and playback based on highly developed MPEG-2 Long GOP compression technology. It can also be switched to record in HD 420 35-Mbps MP4 format which makes for seamless integration when used alongside XDCAM EX models. The PMW-500´s 2/3-inch type three Power HAD FX CCD sensors deliver the same outstanding picture quality and low-light performance as the acclaimed PDW-700, however it records onto Solid State SxS media rather than optical Professional Disc. An advantage is the camera is a bit lighter than the PDW-700 and PDW-F800 and uses less power.
