The Sony PDW-F800 does exactly the same job as the Sony PMW-500. The F800 shoots to XDCAM HD optical discs which cost £30 each and can record up to 95 minutes approx. The PMW-500 shoots to SxS memory cards.
The PDW-F800 captures 50Mbit MPEG-2 Long GOP via its 3 x 2/3″ Power HAD CCD sensors. The file wrapper is MXF or MP4. The MP4 mode provides seamless integration when mixing footage with other XDCAM EX cameras.
