Here are some better quality images of the PMW-300, including it’s base where there are 2x 1/4″ mounting threads plus the lever for adjusting the shoulder brace.
Here you can see the thumbscrew that attaches the viewfinder mounting bracket to the camera body. There is some side to side adjustment at this point. The viewfinder also slides off the end of the fore-aft adjustment rail by pulling out a small pin.

Thanks for the better pictures, How do we get sony to make the front hotshoe a 1/4 x 20 thread mount instead, I wish they would dump the audio outs and composite video out and give us a video in record capability, and i wish they could pack in there some 240fps high speed ability like the fs700. Also I would love to understand more about the compartment in the camera.
Compartment? If you mean the hole in the base that’s there to allow you to get you fingers in to pull out the catch for the shoulder pad release.
oh and id like a dtap in the front for my light
Wow. Engineering prototype #001. Nice to see how many criticisms of the PMW-200 Sony appears to have taken to heart … bagging the periscope mic holder, keeping the shoe clear of the LCD and incorporating the EX1R’s improved rotating grip. Awesome. Hopefully the screen doesn’t have the yellow/green hue problem either. And… drum roll … the media door is not silver! That fat looking stubby mic reminds me of the stereo mic on the old Canon XL-1 but with proper XLR connectors.
excellent camera,weigt and dimention?
Approx 2.5kg. Didn’t get time to measure it.
Hi Alister the XAVC codec firmware upgrade in 2014 do you know if it will support
slomo in 1080p , and higher bit rates like a 100mbs recordings to SXS cards
Sorry to be so late to the party – is the VF assembly removable?
Trying to imagine this being broken down and fitting into an EasyJet friendly backpack with audio gear, wide lens and some edit paraphernalia.
Yes it is removable.
