Sony's HXR-NX5U was a classic: our first NXCAM camcorder and a landmark in the transition from tape to memory recording. Now that classic is reborn in the form of Sony's new HXR-NX5R. With enhanced features like Wi-Fi file transfer, OLED viewfinder and MI Shoe, the NX5R is a worthy successor. It's the ideal tool for documentaries and corporate assignments, weddings & events, nature, sports and journalist newsgathering.
The NX5R's built-in wireless functionality opens up new business opportunities with the push of a button. Live internet stream from any event using hassle-free Ustream service or a generic streaming mode for a local area network for a secure corporate presentation.Remote control makes the the NX5R perfect for multi-camera shoots. Mount on a tripod and use your smart phone or tablet to monitor and control focus, zoom, iris, REC START/STOP and more.
FTP allows you to click and send Full-HD content to your editor for fast breaking news stories.
The NX5R provides all the connectivity options professionals expect, including 3G-SDI (Full HD 50p/60p output), plus REMOTE, composite (BNC) and audio XLR terminals
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the NX5R 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.
Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full; Simul mode allows simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The NX5R'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.
