The PDW-F355 is a tape-less XDCAM HD camcorder, perfectly balanced to fit on your shoulder and featuring the latest evolution of familiar Sony ergonomics.

The PDW-F355 is exceptionally versatile; at the flick of a switch you have the choice of shooting 50i/59.94i/23.98P/25P/29.97P pictures in DV and HD. So you can shoot a local news assignment today, a wedding video tomorrow and your independent short film the day after - all with the same camera, all with the exact settings required to excel in each application.

At the heart of the PDW-F355 is XDCAM Professional Disc - the bestselling, most affordable and most widely supported non-linear acquisition system. The benefits of XDCAM begin from the moment you begin shooting. You can mark key scenes manually or opt for automatic marking, then review scenes by simply selecting their thumbnail images on the colour fold-out screen. Non-linear media means instant scene access and there's no need to worry about overwriting content either.

And by using the latest 50GB Dual Layer Professional Disc, recording times are increased to more than 3 hours when shooting DVCAM, and to around 2.5 hours when shooting high quality HD. With XDCAM HD you choose the pace at which you move to the full potential of an advanced AV/IT, file-based workflow. For post-production, the PDW-F355 outputs a standard DV-based stream so your existing NLE set-up will work with it just the same as a DV/DVCAM camcorder. You can also replay material via an XDCAM HD deck, such as the PDW-F75, for high definition MXF file transfer to your edit system.

The PDW-F355 has been designed to provide the most cost-effective and versatile camcorder you can imagine for the way you work today and tomorrow.
