The Sony HXR-NX100 is an affordable, compact Full-HD camera capable of stunning results with a no-compromise big 1.0-type sensor, and a familiar, proven set of manual controls, including three independent manual lens rings, alongside smart fully auto options. The NX100 offers all the professional features you need in a robust yet compact chassis
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. NX100 offers a step-change in imaging performance while support for multiple recording format capabilities, including XAVC-S 50Mbps, AVCHD and DV file-based recording, delivers exceptional flexibility for all today's Full HD workflows.
Sony developed a high quality, 29mm wide-angle G Lens specifically for the NX100 to capture even the most expansive scenes with superb clarity. A 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 digital extender offering a maximum zoom capability of 48x.
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.
In addition, your ability to get in close with the most distant scenes is aided by Sony's advanced Clear Image Zoom feature. Once you've zoomed in at maximum 12x optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution Technology can enlarge the image by additional 200% while still preserving image quality. In addition, zoom performance can be doubled at any point with a digital extender by up to 48x.
