The Sony HDC-2500 has been widely adopted throughout the outside broadcast and live production industry. It delivers amazing picture quality with high dynamic range and very little noise. Sports productions in particular look more realistic thanks to the HDC-2500’s ability to handle low lights and highlights effectively.

Pair the HDC-2500 with a wide range of HD lenses for stunning image quality.

Advanced technology delivers amazing images

The HDC-2500 was Sony’s top-of-the-range HD camera upon its release, and remains a highly advanced solution thanks to innovative technology such as 2/3-inch CCD and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) with 16 bit A/D converter. These features allow the camera to deliver uncompromisingly high-quality imaging with very low noise and high dynamic range.

Lightweight but tough HD camera channel

A carbon fibre body makes the Sony HDC-2500 a highly robust camera which can withstand most outdoor broadcast conditions while being lighter than its predecessors.

The camera works in partnership with the Sony HDCU-2500 CCU.

Compatible with existing Sony accessories

The HDC-2500 is fully compatible with a range of established Sony accessories. These include the RCP-1500 remote control panel, and large lens adaptors like the HDLA-1500 and HDLA-1505. You can also use viewfinders including the HDVF-20A, HDVF-EL75 and HDVF-EL30 with the HDC-2500.
