With an ultra-high sensitivity of ISO 409600*, the UMC-S3C captures crisp, clear 4K/29.97P/25P colour video and low-noise 12 megapixel still images in minimum illumination conditions of 0.004 lx.
The 35 mm full-frame Exmor sensor captures significantly more incident light than conventional cameras, while the image processing extremely enhances the high sensitivity with very low noise. Area-specific noise reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas like blue skies) to efficiently reduce noise and improve image quality. Detail reproduction technology helps to accurately depict details with a more natural sense of dimension.
*Standard ISO 100–102400, expandable to 50–409600
Greater shooting flexibility with choice of E-mount FE lenses
The camera’s versatility in a wide range of shooting applications is enhanced by compatibility with a wide range of interchangeable E-mount FE lenses (available separately)*. These maximise the performance of the 35 mm full-frame sensor, maintaining high resolution across the entire image area from centre to edges.
*Compatible E mount FE lenses include the SEL35F14Z (35 mm, F1.4), SEL35F28 (35 mm, F2.8), SEL28F20 (28 mm, F2.0), and SEL55F18Z (55 mm, F1.8).
Small and light enough to go anywhere
Ideal for use in space-limited situations, the compact camera measures approximately 104.0 mm x 84.0 mm x 48.0 mm (4 1/8 inches x 3 3/8 inches x 1 15/16 inches). With a light weight of approximately 390 g (13.8 oz), it’s ideal for installation in mobile environments such as vehicles and robots.
Easy operation even on the move
4K video or still images can be recorded internally to an SD card, or fed via HDMI to an external recorder or monitor, even when the camera is on the move. The camera’s multi terminal can connect to Micro USB-compatible devices, allowing remote control of functions such as zoom and shutter release, Rec Start/Stop, and Zoom using widely-available consumer accessories.
High quality internal recording
The camera can continuously record 4K/29.97P/25P colour video in the XAVC S format at up to 100 Mbps, and 12 megapixel colour still images in JPEG or RAW format at 14 bits to an SD memory card. For example, a 64 GB SD card can record up to 125 minutes of continuous 4K footage with standard quality (29.97P/60 Mbps).
Recorded video files can be reviewed on a wide range of ordinary PC media players compatible with the MP4 format such as Windows Media Player.
