Affordable 1-inch palm-size camcorder with Fast Hybrid Auto Focus

The HXR-MC88 Full HD Camcorder from Sony is designed for education, government, and individuals who require a lightweight HD camera solution. The HXR-MC88 features a 14.2MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS chip with a BIONZ X image processor that can work with as little as 1.7 lux illumination in low-lux mode for sharp images. The camera records up to Full HD 1080p60 at 28 Mb/s in the widely supported AVCHD format.

The Fast Hybrid autofocus system supports phase detection, face detection, and lock-on features to quickly capture sharp, in-focus images. Its fixed 29mm ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T wide-angle zoom lens features a 12x optical zoom and up to 48x digital zoom, and you can control iris, shutter, and ISO/gain via auto or manual operation. There is also a built-in neutral density filter wheel that cuts light by 2, 4, and 6 stops, allowing you to leave your individual ND filters at home.

The HXR-MC88 features one Sony Multi Interface (MI) Shoe which allows the attachment of proprietary accessories, such as lights and microphones. The camera includes an XLR handle that connects to the MI shoe and provides two 3-pin XLR audio inputs with 48V phantom power.

For live monitoring it has a 3.5" OLED touchscreen LCD monitor and an 0.39" viewfinder, both of which provide bright and accurate images. There is an HDMI type A as well as a multi-/micro-USB output. Video can be recorded to dual SDHC/SDXC card slots in relay or simultaneous modes; a Sony Memory Stick PRO-HG or PRO Duo (Mark 2) can be used in the first slot. A battery, AC adapter, lens hood, and lens cap are included.


Exmor RS CMOS Sensor
The 14.2MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. The sensor gives you low noise and less blur because more light reaches the sensor, offering clear and steady pictures even in a dark scene with 1.7 lux minimum illumination. The MC88 integrates an advanced BIONZ X image processor to capture the full pixel readout of the sensor without pixel binning for sharp, vivid imagery.

29mm Wide-Angle Lens
The built-in ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens features a 29mm-equivalent focal length when at its widest setting. The 12x optical zoom can be increased to 24x with Clear Image Zoom. In addition, the digital extender can double this range again, up to 48x zoom.

Built-In ND Filter Wheel
A built-in neutral density (ND) filter wheel includes positions for clear, 1/4 (two stops), 1/16 (four stops), and 1/64 (six stops). This makes it easier to get all the advantages of shallow depth of field even in exterior day shoots, with no need to use a separate ND filter.
