HXR-NX30U Compact Camcorder Overview

HXR-NX3/1
The Smart Camcorder

Sony's HXR-NX3/1 is a compact camcorder with three Full HD Exmor® CMOS sensors boasting features like Wi-Fi capability, a high performance G Lens, 20x Optical Zoom PLUS Clear Image Zoom to 40x, HD-SDI and GPS. It combines Sony's leading lens and sensor technology with a large-scale integration (LSI) chip. The result is advanced noise reduction and distortion correction technologies to handle image processing, allowing clear, low-noise recordings even in low-light with enhanced texture and detail.

NXCAM and MC Series Professional Camcorders

Small but mighty

Though small in size, the HXR-NX30U is a true professional. Time code with user bits automatically stamps each frame for positive identification in editing. The supplied Sony ECM-XM1 shotgun mic is highly directional—maximizing the signal and minimizing the noise. Balanced XLR mic inputs reject electromagnetic interference for unhindered audio. Switchable phantom power supports mics that need it, while true input level controls put you in charge of sound.

Ready for any assignment

The HXR-NX30U is ideal as a B cam or crash cam, and is compact enough to shoot discreetly without drawing attention. Because nowadays every shoot is a multi-camera shoot, it's the perfect camcorder to park on a bookshelf to get an additional point of view during interviews. You can hand it to a production assistant to get extra coverage, and take it with you everywhere to be ready for the unexpected.

Incredible image stabilization

While some image stabilization systems move as individual lens elements, Sony's Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization moves the entire lens and image sensor assembly together. It floats as a single unit, resulting in the canceling of a far larger range of camera shake. That means you can confidently shoot with the HXR-NX30U as you walk. Or shoot handheld telephoto. You can even shoot from a moving vehicle.

Versatile recording

Like many cameras, the HXR-NX30U shoots Full HD 1080p. But it goes much further with 24p, 30p and 60p recording. Recording at 60p for a 24p timeline results in beautiful slow motion at 40% actual speed. The camera also captures 24-megapixel still images thanks to Sony's By-Pixel Super Resolution technology.

Built-in projector

The NEX-EA50H incorporates necessary elements for high-quality still image capture. Its mechanical shutter enables capturing fast moving subject. The photo-trigger button functions similar to still camera; push it halfway to set focus and exposure and then press it all the way home to take the picture. Its top handle mounted hot-shoe accepts a flash.

96GB* internal flash memory

With 96GB1 built-in flash memory, you can shoot more than seven hours of material at the camera's highest quality (HD PS mode, 28 Mbps), or up to 40 hours in HD LP mode (5 Mbps). Need more storage? A card slot accepts your choice of a Memory Stick PRO Duo™ or SD card to keep you shooting even longer.

*96 GB equals 96 billion bytes, a portion of which is used for data management.
