Sony is further expanding its professional camcorder credentials with the launch of the new HXR-MC1500. The HXR-MC1500 adds to Sony’s new category of high definition(HD) tape-less memory camcorder series giving the ideal balance of performance and functionality in the digital era.
Capturing moments in both HD as well as SD formats, superb visual quality is certain with proven features such as Sony’s state-of-the-art proprietary G-Lens and Exmor R™ CMOS sensor (up to 4 million pixels). The superior extreme wide angle optical G-lens provides wide capture mode of up to 29.8mm at 12x Optical / 160x Digital Zoom.


Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensors have the ability to produce brilliant videos even in low light conditions. The new camcorder adopts a back-illuminated technology that enables the image sensor to utilize incident light more efficiently, reducing the amount of noise by approximately half. This helps users achieve rich image quality and smoother movement even during shooting in low light situations.


The HXR-MC1500 comes with Optical Steady Shot™ image stabilization (Active Mode) with 3-Way Shake Canceling feature to reduce the effects of hand shake in three directions – vertical and horizontal shake are corrected by optical image stabilization and the third, by way of electronic image stabilization which corrects lateral-roll shake. This advanced stabilization system results in brilliant, accurate and sharp video footage - even for fast-moving, on-the-go experiences.


This ergonomic shoulder mount offers professionals a sleek form factor ideal for weddings, news and corporate events. Aside from being lightweight, it is also light on the pocket, giving budget-conscious videographers more for less.

Sony HDV Camcorder HXR-MC1500
The Sony HXR-MC1500 Shoulder Mount PAL AVCHD Camcorder is the go-to solution when you're ready to leave tape behind and step up to a file-based video workflow. Whether shooting 576i standard-definition or 1080/50i HD video, this sturdy performer will capture hours of high-quality images onto either removable media or a large 32GB internal hard drive. Composite, component, and HDMI ports give you a choice of video output, while the included shotgun microphone is accompanied by a stereo mini jack to attach a second external mic. Sporting a 12x G lens, 0.2" viewfinder, and 2.7" LCD display, the HXR-MC1500's impressive form factor is about more than simply saying "pro" to your clients. Unlike smaller, handheld units, this camera can rest comfortably on your shoulder for rock-steady handheld shooting--aided further by Sony's Optical SteadyShot with Active mode. Perfect for weddings, sporting events, and corporate or educational videos, the HXR-MC1500 represents an affordable transition into solid state, professional imaging.
Wide-angle G Lens
The HXR-MC1500 comes equipped with a sophisticated G Lens that incorporates Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control, delivering exceptional performance on a par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The HXR-MC1500 itself is optimized to perfectly complement the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony's famous image processing technology. This improves picture performance whether zooming in on the action, or getting a perspective on the big picture with the 29.8mm wide angle in Video mode (35mm equivalent).
Exmor R CMOS Sensor with ClearVid Array
The HXR-MC1500's Exmor R CMOS sensor is capable of producing superb image quality even in lowlight conditions. Sony's unique imaging system incorporates exclusive back-illuminated technology that doubles sensitivity compared to conventional CMOS sensors, providing a dramatic boost in lowlight performance. Autofocus technology is also enhanced to perform better in lowlight conditions, so the G-lens can quickly achieve sharp focus on a moving subject. This superb performance in dimly lit indoor scenes and outdoor night scenes is matched by excellent results in bright daylight.
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode
This feature ensures smooth movement while recording footage in many challenging shooting situations. In addition, Sony's innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. This latest version of image stabilization technology realizes images that are up to 10x steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images. As the user zooms in, an intelligent digital image stabilizer starts to blend in and work together with its optical counterpart to effectively reduce camera shake. This technology also reduces shake in the rolling direction that commonly occurs when shooting while walking.
Manual Lens Ring with Assignable Parameters
Using the assignable lens ring, users can manually adjust key parameters like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority. Users can control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background. Shutter speed can also be controlled to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight etc.
Long Operating Time with infoLITHIUM-L Series Battery
The HXR-MC1500 camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, which are compatible with many of Sony Professional's camcorders and accessories. The largest capacity battery (NP-F970) provides a maximum operating time of approximately 13 hours using AVCHD recording in FH mode.
Ergonomic Handle & Controls
The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle, which allow for the attachment of two different types of accessories.
Flexible Operation with Consumer Memory Cards
The HXR-MC1500 supports recording directly onto Memory Stick Pro Duo or SD/SDHC cards (please see Specifications for compatible memory cards). This makes it convenient and economical to obtain new media in almost any location. In addition, a large capacity 32GB solid-state memory comes built into the camcorder body. This combination of removable and built-in memory is especially convenient when shooting a corporate event or wedding on the move. When content has been backed up to a hard drive or downloaded to a PC for editing, you can simply reuse both the removable memory cards and internal memory for your next assignment.
AVCHD: Ideal for Memory Recording
AVCHD is a highly efficient data compression format which greatly reduces memory requirements, maximizing the benefits of file-based recording with high image quality in a small file size. This is made possible by the exceptionally efficient MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec. Many consumer electronic devices already support AVCHD playback, and more are on the way. Numerous major NLE software programs feature AVCHD input and editing.
MPEG-2 for SD Recording Format
The HXR-MC1500's Standard Definition recording format is MPEG-2, which is the same compression codec as standard DVD video discs. If your project will end up on DVD, then using this format can save you production time and maintain the original image quality.
DVDirect & Direct Copy
When the camcorder is connected to the optional DVDirect Express (VRD-P1) DVD writer via a USB cable, a single press of the One Touch Disk button is all it takes to burn video footage directly onto a DVD--without using a PC. This model is also equipped with a downconversion function that enables DVD burning to SD picture quality. Users can play back a DVD they just created simply by pressing the Play button on the DVDirect Express when the camcorder is connected. With Direct Copy you also have the option of quickly and easily backing up valuable video data on an external hard disk drive (HDD)--without using a PC. Simply connect the camcorder using the supplied USB adapter cable (VMC-UAM1).
