We were given a week to try the new Sony HXR-MC2500 by Sony Malaysia. After that, we were invited to the National Film Dept. of Malaysia (Filem Negara) to share our thoughts on the camera’s performance.
The MC2500 is a full HD camera capable of 50 frames per second for the PAL model. What we like about this camcorder is the ease of use. Whether you choose to leave the camera on auto or micro manage and go full manual, this camcorder is all set for that.
We also love the all in one package. This all in one solution is sorely lacking in cameras recently. We just love that you don’t have to start mounting and attaching stuff. Just insert the battery and you’re good to go for a shoot.
Another great feature. The zoom lens has a range from 26.8 to 321.6 mm which means you don’t have to lug around lenses and change them mid-shoot.
We feel one of the best advantages of the MC2500 is the ergonomic design. It’s a joy to hold and shoot with it. It looks sexy and that doesn’t hurt one bit!
