Product Description


Entry-level Full HD professional camcorder suitable for education, corporate and vlogging
Designed to meet the fast-growing demand for affordable, easy-to-use video production equipment, the HXR-MC88 offers the latest generation imaging performance at breakthrough pricing for a wide variety of Full-HD applications. MC88 is an ideal camcorder for teaching video production, recording corporate or government presentations, vlogging, and even video enthusiasts taking the next step forward.

The HXR-MC88 camcorder is lightweight and compact, but fully featured with Fast Hybrid Auto Focus, dual XLR professional audio, built-in ND filters, and powerful 48x zoom* for easy on-the-go shooting. A big 1.0 type Exmor RS™ sensor with BIONZ X processing engine offers superb light sensitivity, delivering bright high-quality Full HD imagery that makes an immediate impact. A super high-resolution OLED viewfinder and 3.5-type LCD give you complete confidence when shooting.
*Using Digital Extender feature, which gives additional 2x magnification.

Revolutionary imaging performance with Exmor RS

To deliver imaging performance previously impossible for a compact camcorder, a large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. The sensor gives you low noise and less blur, because more light reaches the sensor, offering clear and steady pictures even in a dark scene with a minimum illumination of 1.7 lux*(1/30 seconds).
To fully realize the potential of this large 1.0-type sensor, the MC88 integrates an advanced BIONZ X image processor to capture the full pixel readout of the sensor without pixel binning for vivid, pin-sharp imagery.
*LOW LUX mode

Ultimate mobility with high-speed autofocus

The HXR-MC88 is palm-sized and ultra-lightweight to shoot in any situation, and its advanced Fast Hybrid AF system is designed to provide pin-sharp image quality at all times with complete creative control.

Enhanced Fast Hybrid autofocus with touch panel operation

Enhanced Fast Hybrid autofocus (AF) comprises a number of features: phase-detection AF, face detection, and lock-on autofocus technology to estimate subject movement. They all work together seamlessly to capture fast-moving subjects with amazing sharpness. Moreover, an intuitive touch panel interface allows you to select an autofocus point with ease. MC88 makes it simple to capture the shots you need.

Auto Focus Creative Control

AF Drive Speed means you set the speed at which focus switches — rapid for a sports event and slow for a drama production. It’s easy to get the results you need. AF Switching Sensitivity lets you lock tight to a single subject or fluidly switch focus — such as when shooting a line of runners. AF Track Depth allows you to choose a Wide depth of field when a subject is fast-moving, while Narrow fine-tunes performance for a subject at a consistent distance.

Wide-angle zoom lens with great control

The HXR-MC88 is supplied with a fixed 29 mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens, ideal for capturing panoramic landscapes. The 12 x optical zoom can be increased to 24x with Clear Image Zoom, In addition, the digital extender can double this range again, up to 48x zoom.

The camcorder’s lens ring enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming, depending on which mode is selected; while the manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift and easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), ISO/GAIN, and shutter speed.

Superb quality monitoring with enhanced OLED viewfinder

You have superb monitoring options with the MC88’s enhanced 0.39-type 2359 K dot OLED viewfinder and 3.5-type 1550K dot LCD. The super high-resolution OLED viewfinder offers excellent quality brightness, contrast, and response, giving you better precision of manual focus operations and eliminating any color-breaking phenomenon. The LCD gives you further flexible composition options.

Dual XLR inputs

Robust XLR inputs on the removable handle support professional standard stereo audio recording. Switchable phantom power supports mics that need it, while independent channel input dials provide precision control.

Dual media slots

To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the HXR-MC88 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards as well as Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) / PRO-HG Duo.* Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full; Simul mode allows simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example, to create an immediate back-up version). The HXR-MC88’s two start/stop buttons on the handle grip and camcorder body can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simul mode.
*Memory Stick: Card Slot 1 only.
