Easy transmission change
The HDC-5500 supports optical fibre transmission as standard, with a SMPTE-standard interface for connection with associated HDCU-3100/HDCU-2000 series Camera Control Units. It’s quick and easy to reconfigure the camera at any time for fibre, third-generation digital triax or wireless operation with a choice of optional outside panels.

Wider workflow options
Combining exceptional lightness and strength, the magnesium alloy body is complemented by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) outside panels. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low centre of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.

Seamless integration
Backwards compatibility with Sony’s industry-acclaimed HDC-2000 series system cameras simplifies smooth integration with your current live production infrastructures, including cameras and CCUs.

Multi-speed slo-motion acquisition
Adding an optional license enables high frame-rate (HFR) HD image capture at 8x, 6x, 4x, 3x, and 2x. Simultaneous capture of high dynamic range (HDR) images allows simultaneous production of HDR and SDR at an SR-Live event.

Display camera number and tally
Assigned camera number is indicated on the camera body by a graphical electronic paper display. Displayed information is updated automatically to reflect system changes. There’s also an LED tally lamp beside the camera number display.

Rich focus assist functions
The Viewfinder Detail function adds dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder, helping the operator to focus quickly and precisely in any shooting situation. It’s complemented by a Focus Assist Indicator and advanced Focus Position Meter function.

Servo controlled ND and CC filters
Dual optical filter wheels for Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC)* open up wider creative possibilities. Both filters can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.

Network TRUNK
Network TRUNK (via LAN port) allows high-speed data transmission between the camera and CCU at up to 1 Gbps to support configurability* with IP-based products and systems.
