The PXW-X320 combines full-fledged shoulder-mount ergonomics, with the ability to capture phenomenal clarity from three ½”-type Exmor CMOS sensors with 6 dB improved signal-to-noise ratio.

Capable of recording with Sony’s 10-bit, 4:2:2 XAVC I and XAVC L codecs, plus choice of several other formats. With an improved Flash Band Reducer, the camcorder can also optionally support sharing content wirelessly, including  advanced Quality of Service streaming, when using the CBK-WA101 wireless adapter and/or the PWS-100RX1 receiver (each sold seperately).
