Sony HXR-MC88

Designed to meet fast-growing demand for affordable, easy-to-use video production equipment, the HXR-MC88 offers latest generation imaging performance at breakthrough pricing for a wide variety of Full-HD applications. MC88 is an ideal camcorder for teaching video production, recording corporate or government presentations, vlogging and even video enthusiasts taking the next step forward.

The HXR-MC88 camcorder is lightweight and compact, but fully featured with Fast Hybrid Auto Focus, dual XLR professional audio, built-in ND filters and powerful 48x zoom* for easy on-the-go shooting. A big 1.0 type Exmor RS™ sensor with BIONZ X processing engine offers superb light sensitivity, delivering bright high quality Full HD imagery that makes an immediate impact. A super high resolution OLED viewfinder and 3.5-type LCD give you complete confidence when shooting.
*Using Digital Extender feature, which gives additional 2x magnification.

Revolutionary imaging performance with Exmor RS

To deliver imaging performance previously impossible for a compact camcorder, a large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked 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 minimum illumination 1.7 lux*(1/30 seconds).
To fully realise the potential of this large 1.0-type sensor, the MC88 integrates an advanced BIONZ X image processor to capture the full pixel readout of the sensor without pixel binning for vivid, pin-sharp imagery.
*LOW LUX mode

Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus with touch panel operation

Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus (AF) comprises a number of features: phase-detection AF, face detection and lock-on auto focus technology to estimate subject movement. They all work together seamlessly to capture fast-moving subjects with amazing sharpness. Moreover, an intuitive touch panel interface allows you to select an autofocus point with ease. MC88 makes it simple to capture the shots you need.

ND filters

A built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel includes positions for clear, 1/4 (2 stops), 1/16 (4 stops), and 1/64 (6 stops). This makes it easier to get all the advantages of shallow depth of field even in exterior day shoots, with no need to worry about bringing along and fitting a separate filter.

Remote operation

The HXR-MC88 features a standard remote interface (2.5 mm stereo mini-mini jack). Focus, zoom, rec start/stop and rec review can be controlled remotely using optional RM-1BP or RM-30BP.
