The Sony HXR-NX100 NXCAM Professional Handheld Camcorder combines high-quality performance and ease of use to a compact handheld body. The camcorder features a single 1 inch Exmor R sensor with Full HD 1920×1080 resolution, Sony G lens with 12x optical zoom range, and a 24x Clear Image Zoom. The integrated zoom lens features individual lens control rings for focus, iris, and zoom. The lens can be used in either full-auto mode with servo control or as a completely manually operated lens.
High sensitivity and high resolution
Thanks to the 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor, the HXR-NX100 has much higher sensitivity than camcorders in its category. The 1.0 sensor is brighter, has higher resolution and offers more bokeh with a shallow depth of field than any other camcorder in its price range, allowing you to create beautiful, cinematic images that will amaze you and your clients.
Get close with a 48x zoom
Now you can capture even the most expensive scenes with superb clarity thanks to the 29mm wide-angle G Lens. 12x optical zoom is dramatically enhanced with Sony’s unique by Pixel Super Resolution Technology – which can enlarge the image by additional 24x while still preserving image quality. Zoom performance can also be doubled at any point with the digital extender offering a maximum zoom capability of 48x.
Adaptable professional functions
Professional features such as advanced manual controls, including three independent manual lens rings, built-in 4-step ND filters and class-leading Full-HD performance make the HXR-NX100 an ideal purchase for expert users looking for their first professional camcorder from Sony, who want to step-up from consumer models and low-end shoulder models or simply wish to make the move from tape media to high-speed solid-state recording. The NX100 is the perfect, affordable but high-performance choice for a wide range of shoots, including events and corporate videos.
Large 1.0 type sensor
The HXR-NX100’s single 20 megapixels 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor is approximately the same size as a 16mm film frame and seven times larger than three 1/4.7 type sensors combined. The key benefit of this large size is 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. The large sensor size also enables beautiful background defocusing (bokeh) to enable you to focus on what you want to show and defocus the rest of the image.
Sony G Lens with maximum 48x zoom
A fixed 29mm wide-angle lens with 12x optical zoom makes it easy to capture even the most expansive landscape scenes while also offering superb clarity and sharpness – maximising the performance of the NX100’s large 1.0 type sensor. The G Lens is Sony’s own camera lens family, designed and manufactured to the high standards of optical performance.
Professional handy design
Ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use shooting experience. Three manual, independent lens rings enable smooth, natural adjustment of focusing, zooming and iris control. It can also be used in full-auto mode or completely manual for maximum creative control. Manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift and easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN and shutter speed. The white balance is simple to adjust by colour temperature in convenient 100K steps.
Dual media slots for recording flexibility
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the NX100 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards as well as Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo. The NX100’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.
