The PMW-300K1 is effectively the same camera as the PMW-200 but with an enhanced viewfinder.  

It is a solid-state Broadcast quality compact camcorder featuring a removeable 14x lens and twin SxS slots and twin SxS slots to record 50Mb XDCAM HD codec to cards (supplied).

It supports XAVC 10-bit HD422 recordings, including XAVC Intra frame 10-bit HD 422 100 Mbps and XAVC Long GOP 10-bit HD 422 (low bit rate)*. It also records Full HD (1920 x 1080) MPEG HD 422 at 50 Mbps in industry-standard MXF files, along with 24-bit 48 kHz, 4-channel audio. It is also capable of recording MPEG-2 HD 420 in Full HD (1920 x 1080) at 35 Mbps. 

Standard Definition recording includes DVCAM format and MPEG IMX SD up to 50Mbps. MPEG IMX format offers exceptional visual quality for SD recording that is comparable to Digital Betacam broadcast standard. Standard Definition options include MPEG IMX and DVCAM.

The kit is supplied with 2x 32GB SxS cards, each with an approximate recording time of 60 minutes in HD422 mode.

Lens

The 14x lens supplied is an image-stabilised AF/MF zoom lens with a range of 5.8-81.2mm/F1.9, equivalent to 31.4-439 mm on 35mm lens and the filter diameter is 77mm

Optional 2/3" B4 Mount Adapter to allow cinema-style and HD electronic lenses. As this is a 1/2" CCD sensor, it will actually give an extended reach, so that an HJ22x7.8 (7.8-171mm) lens will have a reach closer to 300mm.
