Megapixels:
A megapixel is one million pixels. It is commonly used to describe the resolution of digital cameras. For example, a 7.2 megapixel camera is capable of capturing roughly 7,200,000 pixels. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Therefore, the megapixel count is a significant specification to look for when buying a digital camera.

Overview

Camcorder:
The Sony HXR-MC88 Full HD Camcorder
features a compact & lightweight design, as well as Fast Hybrid Auto Focus, dual XLR professional audio, built-in ND filters, & a powerful 24x zoom. Its large 1.0" (1.0 type) stacked backside illuminated Exmor RSTM CMOS sensor, combined with its BIONZ X processing engine, provides remarkable light sensitivity, while delivering bright, high quality Full HD imagery. Its super high resolution 3.5" LCD and OLED viewfinder will provide you with complete confidence when shooting.

Optics & Focus:
The Sony HXR-MC88 features an optical 12x zoom with Clear Image Zoom, expanding the zoom up to 24x. While filming, fast or unpredictable motion can have a negative impact on the Contrast Detection auto focus of conventional camcorders. The HXR-MC88 uses Fast Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) to stay ahead of the action, by combining both Contrast Detection & Phase. The touchscreen LCD allows you to simply select the focus area with a simple touch. This allows you to track objects and adjustments, by also adding in the AF Tracking Depth. They all work together remarkably, to capture fast- moving subjects with consistent clarity and sharpness.

Auto Focus Subject Tracking allows you to capture objects  that are moving in a wide or narrow space. Switching your sensitivity sets the response for shifting focus between subjects & can be set to track a single moving subject. Wide, Zone, Center and Flexible Spot settings are provided for maximum control.

Sensor & Screen:
The HXR-MC88 combines of a large 1.0" (1.0- type) stacked Exmor RSTM CMOS image sensor with an advanced BIONZ X processor, providing you with Full HD recording in high resolution, without any pixel binning, and produces high image clarity with less noise, even when shooting in dark lighting scenarios. This combination also helps to produce beautiful, visually pleasing bokeh. The 14.2 MP CMOS sensor works with Sony’s Digital Extender to double its 24x zoom range up to 48x zoom, satisfying the demand for wide-angle to telephoto shooting. Sony’s 0.39- type OLED viewfinder allows for precise manual focus by combining high brightness & contrast with its 2359K-dot resolution. The HXR-MC88 also features a highly responsive viewfinder, which eliminates color breaking. Its design supplements the viewfinder with a 3.5-type 1550K-dot touchscreen LCD monitor.

Image & Video:
The Sony HXR-MC88 Full HD Camcorder is able to maintain full resolution throughout its 24x zoom (& 48x using its digital extender) by using Super Resolution Technology. Whether you are shooting for education, corporate purposes, or vlogging, the HXR-MC88 provides superb light sensitivity while delivering bright, high quality Full HD footage that makes an immediate impact.
 

Other Features:

  • The HXR-MC88's 14.2 MP CMOS sensor & Sony’s Digital Extender can double its 24x zoom range up to 48x zoom to provide you with wide-angle to telephoto shooting in a number of scenes.
     
  • Its detachable handle is designed with two XLR microphone inputs. Even when the handle has been removed, a stereo mini jack microphone input on the body is still provided. This feature is ideal for shooting in smaller areas, such as inside a car, or when mounted on a gimbal.
     
  • Two SDXCTM & SDHCTM slots are provided in order to extend recording time & flexibility. "Slot 1" is also compatible with Memory Stick PRO DuoTM (Mark 2) / PRO-HG DuoTM cards. This feature also provides you with "Relay mode", which automatically switches recording to the second memory card when the first is full. "Simul mode" allows for simultaneous recording to both memory cards to provide you with a back-up of your recording. Two Start/Stop buttons on the handle grip & camcorder body are featured, which allows you to independently start & stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simul mode.
     
  • The  Sony HXR-MC88 works remarkably with the MCX-500 and RM-30BP remote (not included) to form a cost-effective Live Production System. A Tally indicator automatically appears on each camera’s LCD panel & viewfinder while using a remote. A red icon appears when the shot is live (PGM) while a Green icon appears for preview mode (NEXT). The MCX-500 allows for mixing between eight video sources, four stereo embedded audio channels, two XLR Inputs, & a dedicated Title Input. There are both internal recording & live streaming via Ustream, Facebook Live & YouTube Live.

Minimum Illumination: Minimum illumination is 1.7 Lux (SS: 1/30 seconds)
Minimum Illumination:
Minimum illumination indicates the minimum amount of light required to see a ‘useful’ image generated by a camera. It is measured with a light meter and the specification is expressed in lux. When comparing minimum illumination specifications, it is important to know the conditions under which measurements were made, because the specifications vary with parameters such as video levels, shutter speed, gain, and F-number.
