Capture the story with tools you can count on

Our newsgathering tools are built to deliver, again and again. Fast and connected, you can count on them to help you capture, share and keep up with developing stories. Wherever you’re working, you can edit, share and stream footage—from the field to the cloud. And you know your videos have the detail and quality the story needs.

Learn how Swiss news organisation CH Media uses camera to cloud technology to get breaking news back from the field and out to its viewers as fast as possible.

Rugged, trusted camcorders. Built for news.

Sony ENG camcorders are used by news crews around the world. Engineered to work anywhere, they’ve been tested in all weather and lighting conditions to make sure you can rely on them to deliver. Ergonomic design paired with easy-to-use features. Built-in ND filters and integrated zoom lenses. Record in HD or 4K, with or without HDR. These camcorders meet real-world needs and fit into modern workflows.

Live broadcasts and footage transfers, without wires

Stream news straight from the field or transfer footage, fast. Our cloud-based C3 Portal service connects camcorders to the cloud, so you can produce the news faster. News Teams can connect to the camcorder directly to retrieve footage, and with a choice of recording formats, footage can go straight to an editor when it arrives. Reporters chase the story while editors exchange live video, files and metadata.

Simple transfers, easy-to-use tools

Intuitive design makes our camcorders easy to use, while programmable buttons can save time setting up. And you can easily add C3 Portal to Sony camcorders over any internet connection, then control it through a mobile app. No extra hardware needed. Even without C3 Portal, our XDCAM wireless workflow can use WiFi and 4G/5G for quick file transfers.

Compelling images with detail, colour and focus

With CMOS and Exmor sensors, our camcorders capture all the details you need, in HD or 4K. High frame rate recording helps you keep up with events and capture the crucial moments. Face detection auto-focus ensures your footage stays sharp, in any situation. And HDR capability can bring extra colour, and more impact, to your coverage.
