Equipment Catalog

Sony EA50UH

The Sony EA50U is a full- sized, yet lightweight high definition video camera. The length of the camera combined with the built in extendable shoulder pad eliminates the need for a shoulder mount, making this camera ideal in the field for documentary style shooting. The camera has the same 18-200mm lens as the Sony FS100 but on the EA50U there is a built in servo for zooming, making it more user -friendly. The 18-200mm lens can be removed and replaced with a variety of the Film Department’s Nikon Lenses. The EA50UH’s APS-C CMOS senor is capable of recording in 1080P at 24,25,30 and 60 frames per second. In low light the camera’s sensor produces little video noise. The EA50UH is capable of shooting 16MP still photos without interrupting video recording.
