Sony UMC-S3CA Ultra High Sensitivity 4K Video Camera with Full 35mm frame Exmor™ CMOS Sensor.

Crisp, clear 4K video and still images, even under limited lighting environment.
With an ultra-high sensitivity of ISO 409600*, the UMC-S3CA captures crisp, clear 4K/29.97P/25P colour video and low-noise 12 megapixel still images in minimum illumination conditions of 0.004 lx.

The 35 mm full-frame Exmor sensor captures significantly more incident light than conventional cameras, while powerful image processing ensures very low image noise. Area-specific noise reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas like blue skies) to efficiently reduce noise and improve image quality. Detail reproduction technology helps depict details with a more natural sense of dimension.

*Standard ISO 100–102400, expandable to 50–409600.
Shooting flexibility with choice of E-mount FE lenses
The camera’s versatility is enhanced by a wide range of interchangeable E-mount FE lenses (available separately)*. These maximise the performance of the 35 mm full-frame sensor, maintaining high resolution across the entire image area from centre to edges.

*Compatible E mount FE lenses include the SEL35F14Z (35 mm, F1.4), SEL35F28 (35 mm, F2.8), SEL28F20 (28 mm, F2.0), and SEL55F18Z (55 mm, F1.8).
Small and light enough to go anywhere
Ideal for use in space-limited situations, the compact camera measures approximately 104.0 mm x 84.0 mm x 48.0 mm (4 1/8 inches x 3 3/8 inches x 1 15/16 inches). With a light weight of approximately 395 g (14 oz), it’s ideal for installation in mobile environments such as vehicles and robots.
Genlock function for multi-camera operation
A new genlock function simplifies operation of mutiple cameras at the same time. The UMC-S3CA can be synchronised to other video sources, broadening its appeal for an exciting range of new multi-camera applications. These include 2D/3D Virtual Reality, multiple angle live broadcast coverage of various events, or as a supplementary studio camera.
Easy operation, even on the move
4K video or still images can be recorded internally to an SD card, or fed via HDMI to an external recorder or monitor, even when the camera is on the move. The camera’s multi terminal can connect to Micro USB-compatible devices, allowing remote control of functions such as zoom and shutter release, Rec Start/Stop, and Zoom using widely-available consumer accessories.
High quality internal recording to SD card
The camera can continuously record 4K/29.97P/25P colour video in the XAVC S format at up to 100 Mbps, and 12 megapixel colour still images in JPEG or RAW format at 14 bits to an SD memory card. For example, a 256 GB SD card can record up to 8 hours and 35 minutes of continuous 4K footage with standard quality (29.97P/60 Mbps).

Recorded video files can be reviewed on a wide range of ordinary PC media players compatible with the MP4 format such as Windows Media Player.
