• Choice of HD Recording Formats, including both interlaced and progressive (59.94i/50i/23.98PsF)
• Equipped with three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCDs
• Advanced Noise Suppression (NS) technology provides a signal-to-noise ratio of 59dB
• High-resolution 14-bit A/D conversion allows mid- to dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced
• Large, easy-to-view, colour LCD screen on the camcorder's side panel allows instant playback of recorded footage


Choice of HD Recording Formats, including both interlaced and progressive
The HDW-650F offers a choice of video formats for both frame rates and scanning mode. Acquisition of pictures at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 in 50i, 59.94i and 25P is provided.

Three 2/3-inch HD Power HAD FX CCDs
The HDW-650F is equipped with three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCDs, which are also used in Sony's class leading HDC-1500 HD Camera.

Based on Sony's Power HAD FX sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, the HDW-650P offers a high sensitivity of F11 at 59.94 Hz or F12 at 50 Hz.

Sony HDW-650F

Superb Signal-to-noise Ratio
A signal-to-noise ratio of 59dB can be achieved by activating the Noise Suppression (NS) mode of the HDW-650F, which helps to reduce the high-frequency noise elements of video signals using Sony's advanced digital processing technology.

14-bit A/D Conversion
The HDW-650F incorporates high-performance 14-bit A/D conversion so that images captured by the high-performance CCDs can be processed with maximum precision.

This high-resolution A/D conversion allows mid- to dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced. Thanks to the 14-bit A/D converter, pre-knee signal compression in highlighted areas can be eliminated, and the camera can clearly reproduce a high-luminance subject at a 600% dynamic range*.

*In 1080/50i and 59.94i mode.

3.5-inch* LCD
A large, easy-to-view, colour LCD screen on the HDW-650F camcorder's side panel enables operators to instantly review recorded footage - as well as access the camera's set-up menus, and view status indications such as the four channels of audio and the remaining time available from the tape and battery.

*Viewable area measured diagonally.
New Audio Capability: Digital Wireless Microphone Receiver
The HDW-650F is compatible with a range of microphones.

It is equipped with a slot to accommodate the DWR-S01D* digital wireless microphone receiver, which provides two-channel audio with stable and secure transmission tolerant to interference.

The status of the digital wireless microphone system can be monitored through both the camcorder's viewfinder and the LCD display.

Shotgun-type microphones, such as the ECM-680S/678/674, are also available as options.


Sony HDW650F

Well-balanced Compact Body
The ergonomic design of the HDW-650P provides optimum weight balance, allowing users to enjoy comfortable hand-held operation. Because its centre of gravity is located roughly at the centre point of the shoulder pad, operating the camera for long periods on the shoulder causes less strain on the supporting arm. The HDW-650P's light body weighs just 4.2 kg (9 lb 4 oz).

Down-conversion Capability
The HDW-650F is equipped with a built-in down-conversion system as standard. Down-converted pictures can be output via SD-SDI for SD post production or monitoring.

Picture Cache Recording
The HDW-650F offers a picture cache recording function that is especially useful.

Up to eight seconds of audio and video are buffered in the camcorder's memory before the Rec. start button is pressed (when in Standby mode).

This ensures that action up to eight seconds before the Rec. start button was pressed will still be captured. Cache recording works even before the tape is inserted into the drive - helping to prevent the loss of any unexpected, yet important events.

Slow Shutter*
The shutter speed of the HDW-650F is selectable down to a 16-frame period (in 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, and 16-frame periods).

During this frame period, electrical charges accumulate on the CCDs, which dramatically increases sensitivity. This helps camera operators to shoot in extremely dark environments.

The Slow Shutter function also allows operators to use shutter speeds longer than the frame rate, for enhanced shooting creativity. For example, when shooting a moving object, to create intentional blurring of the image.

Other Features Provided as Standard
Four types of HyperGamma characteristic as standard: HyperGamma 1, 2, 3, and 4. Operators can select the best-suited preset gamma curve depending on the scene being shot and their desired 'look' for the image.
Supports AES/EBU Digital Audio input, in addition to microphone input, +48 V microphone input, and line input
