Made for the toughest ENG and field-based production tasks, the PXW-X400 shoulder mounting camcorder is ready for anything.

Watch cameraman, trainer and independent product expert Forest Finbow run through the highlights of this powerful camera that’s big on features, usability and sheer picture quality.

Three 2/3-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors assure sparkling Full HD images in any light – and you’re future-proofed with a planned sensor upgrade to 4K. There’s a generous range of interfaces and outputs. Better still, the PXW-X400 is network ready to allow real-time streaming and rapid file transfers back to base over LTE or Wi-Fi. As an extra bonus for news crews, camera weight has been cleverly redistributed for fatigue-free handling on challenging assignments.

Pro-quality pictures deserve a serious soundtrack. The PXW-X400 makes a great partner for the NEW URX-S03D 2-channel slot-in receiver with a true diversity system for stable RF transmission and high quality sound. Doesn’t that sound like a great combination?
