Sony Announces Full-Frame 4K Action Camera with Extreme Low-light Sensitivity

The Sony UMC-S3C is the latest camera announced by Sony; the tiny 4K beast features a massive 12 megapixel full-frame 35mm sensor, interchangeable E-mount and extreme low-light sensitivity that goes up to nearly half a million!


“At Sony, we focus on enhancing high resolution and high sensitivity,” said Roger Lawrence, Video Security Product Manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “With this approach, we have been expanding our current 4K product line-up and are confident that we can tap into new markets with the all-new UMC-S3C. The latest video camera is also a testament of Sony’s relentless efforts to provide our clients with solutions that meet their business requirements.”

Weighting in at just 400 grams and sporting a very compact footprint, the new UMC-S3C can be used in a variety of applications from POV camera, dashboard cam, action cam for TV/broadcast productions or action sports shoots, surveillance and many more.

The vivid, full colour 4K images out of the camera offer a 4x increase in resolution compared to conventional HD cameras giving you crisper and more lifelike detail. The UMC-S3C is not only capable of recording 4K, but also reaching staggering ISO levels of 409,600 making it perfect for wildlife documentaries, surveillance or any other application where super-low light sensitivity is a must.


Long duration video recording is also possible as the stand-alone camera is equipped with a memory card slot on the camera body, instead of network cabling feature; a 64GB memory card can store up to 125 minutes of 4K footage with standard quality (30 fps/60 Mbps) in the XAVC-S format at 100Mb/s.

There's no word on pricing yet, but the camera looks like will be available late Summer. To get your pre-order in or talk to us about the UMC-S3C give us a call on 0208 977 1222.
