The two card slots can be controlled independently from two separate record buttons. An HDMI output connector provides uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2 signals while shooting for use with external recorders.

PLEASE NOTE: Rechargeable battery pack and shotgun microphone are not included.

3 Exmor CMOS Sensors
The HXR-NX3 features three 1/2.8" Full HD CMOS sensors, one-sensor for the Red, Green, and Blue color channels. This means high detail and texture, even on high-contrast colors. And, thanks to Sony's Exmor technology, the CMOS sensors deliver low noise and high sensitivity for low-light shooting situations.
Sony G Lens with 20x Optical Zoom, 40x Clear Image Zoom
The Sony G lens provides high image quality while offering 20x optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent focal range of 28.8mm to 576mm. When more telephoto reach is needed a 40x "Clear Image Zoom" allows you to reach an 35mm equivalent focal lengths up to 1152mm.
Frame Rate Flexibility
The camcorder records using the AVCHD 2.0 codec for Full HD 1920x1080 resolution video at frame rates of 24p, 30p, 60i, and 60p. The camcorder also offers 720/60p AVCHD capture, 2x slow motion and 60x quick motion recording, as well as standard definition DV recording. The two SD card slots enable simultaneous or relay recording.
Wi-Fi Control
Use your smartphone or tablet as a remote viewfinder as well as a remote control for camera functions such as recording start/stop, zoom, iris, and touch auto focus. The Wi-Fi remote works with both iOS and Android devices. MP4 video streaming from the camera delivers up to 30 fps to your wireless device. Frame-rate will depend on the processor speed of the mobile device.
