Sony HDCAM has become firmly established as the de-facto High Definition (HD) production format worldwide, with a unique track record for production of the highest quality programming. Much of this reputation has been built upon the HDW-F900, the world's first 24P CineAlta HD camcorder, which received a Primetime Emmy® Engineering Award in 2004.

For 2006 Sony has developed the HDW-F900R, the successor model to the HDW-F900. This new camcorder represents the flagship model within the HDCAM line-up, and has been designed for productions such as drama, commercials and feature films where a prestige 24P look is required.

The HDW-F900R combines the imaging performance of the original HDW-F900 in a smaller, lighter chassis. Power consumption has been reduced, new features have been added and the new camcorder meets the latest EU environmental legislation.

The HDW-F900R features 12-bit A/D conversion, can record four channels of digital audio and provides HD-SDI output as standard. It joins the HDW-730S, HDW-750P and HDW-750PC camcorders within the HDCAM line-up.

The HDW-F900R is supplied without a viewfinder. The picture shows the camcorder fitted with an optional HDVF-C30W HD LCD colour viewfinder.
