This is one of the cheapest cameras with HD-SDI. Although it might not be the best camera in the market today, it is still a good deal for being a single-chip with a professional I/O. The Sony PMW100 Exmor CMOS XDCAM HD422 is a decent gadget as soon as firmware is updated, which basically does away with a few exposure issues and a rather slow focus ring.

Most reviews of this product agree in that it is excellent for field shoots. Its weight also allows for several outputs. Whether one is a videographer or a professional journalist or just a beginner, you will certainly appreciate how it has combined exceptional picture quality, outstanding maneuverability, and portability. More than that, it is a small, easy-to-carry device that has almost everything that a professional videographer looks for in a camera, among which are HDMI, XLR, and SDI.
Unlike other XDCAM models, the Sony PMW100 Exmor CMOS XDCAM HD422 supports a transfer speed of 50 mb/sec, a broadcast standard that is absent in its model variants. Its sample rate of 422 may not also be as impressive as newer cameras, but its broadcast standard more than compensates for this. And the price is very affordable indeed.
