    The PMW-400 also features a host of camera functions and settings including; a memory buffer that allows you to record up to 15 seconds of audio and picture before you press the record button, selectable gamma curves, Slow and Quick Motion (variable recording frame rates), time-lapse, stop-motion, and slow shutter mode. The camcorder features a removable 3.5" Color LCD Viewfinder that you can view as a standard viewfinder, or remove the eyepiece and use as an LCD screen. The PMW-400K features a 16x zoom lens that attaches to the camera using the Sony bayonet mount.

    Imaging System
    The three 2/3" Exmor CMOS sensors, capture 1920 x 1080 video and are coupled with an F 1.4 prism. The large sized sensors and the optically fast prism allow the camera to have excellent low light capabilities.
    Optical ND Filters
    A built-in filter ring features four filters that you can select. These are a clear and three different ND filters. The lightest ND filter passes 1/4 of the light, the next ND filter passes 1/16th of the light, and the heaviest ND filter passes 1/64th of the light.
    Viewfinder
    The 3.5" color LCD viewfinder features 1/4 HD resolution with 960 x 540 pixels. The viewfinder is removable, can be adjusted side to side, and rotate as much as 180 degrees toward the subject. In this position, the viewfinder image and information will be upside down; a switch on the rear panel of the viewfinder can be used to correct the upside down picture and viewfinder info. The viewfinder's eyepiece features diopter adjustment that allows you to compensate for differences in each operator's vision. The eyepiece can also be flipped out of the way allowing you to see the LCD without putting your eye right up against the viewfinder.
    Camera Functions
    • The camera features a built in memory cache of that can hold 15 seconds of footage. So the camera is continually buffering the previous 15 seconds worth of video. When you hit the record button and start recording, those 15 seconds are recorded as part of the clip. Essentially, you are recording the 15 seconds before you hit record. This can be extremely useful for events where you are waiting for something to happen, but you don't want to miss it by hitting the record button too late or record hours of footage of nothing happening. The cache allows you to frame up the shot and then when something happens, you've already captured it just by pressing record within 15 seconds of the event happening.
    • Focus peaking provides a colored highlight around areas that are in focus and can be very useful in situations where it is hard to tell what is in focus by using the LCD viewfinder.
    • The included focus magnification function expands the image in the viewfinder to help you focus.
    • Assignable function buttons
    Recording
    • The PMW-400 supports HD recording using the MPEG-2 LONG GOP codec, and SD recordings are made in the DVCAM or MPEG IMX format. HD resolutions include 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080, and 1280 x 720.
    • The PMW-400 supports Native 23.98 recording
