High Quality Camcorder

Create Stunning Images

Sony endowed the HXR-NX3/1 with three 1/2.8" Full HD CMOS sensors. What does that mean to you? Three 1920 x 1080 sensors-one each for the Red, Green and Blue channels-mean exceptional detail and texture, even on high-contrast colors. And Sony's Exmor® CMOS design delivers low noise for superb clarity deep into the shadows.


20x Optical Zoom, 40x Clear Image Zoom

Take control with separate rings for focus, iris and zoom. Shoot exterior day with built-in ND filters. Then choose your point of view with 20x optical zoom that extends from an uncommonly wide 28.8mm to 576mm (35mm equivalent). Need more? Sony's signal processing wizards have created Super Resolution Technology, for 40x Clear Image Zoom images that hold up even under close inspection.

Frame Rate Flexibility

Frame Rate Flexibility

A proud member of Sony's NXCAM® camcorder family, the HXR-NX3/1 records in the AVCHD® codec at frame rates of 24p, 30p, 60i and 60p. Ideal for sports, the 1080/60p mode combines powerful detail with smooth, lifelike motion. The camcorder also offers 720/60p AVCHD capture, powerful Slow & Quick Motion (overcranking and undercranking), plus standard definition DV® memory recording. Two card slots enable simultaneous recording and relay recording.


Built-in LED Video Light

For even greater versatility when shooting close-ups and interviews, the HXR-NX3/1 comes equipped with an LED video light. It's good for 200 lux at 3.3 feet (1 meter) and 800 lux at 1.6 feet (0.5 meters). This handy little light can make the difference between getting or missing a shot.
