This Video Backpack is a mobile production package that allows shooting right out of the box, with everything packed and ready for whatever assignment comes along. It’s a self-contained videopack that provides everything necessary for professional shooting, lighting, and editing.
The centerpiece of the pack is the HXP-NX3OU compact professional camcorder. This is a high quality, small format, full HD video camera with a full professional audio interface capability. The NX3OU camcorder utilizes breakthrough Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology to help eliminate camera shake, and offers other convenient features such as a built-in projector.
The easy-to-use UWP-V1 full wireless microphone system provides a body pack lavaliere microphone, which sends high-quality audio for distances up to few hundred feet away, and will even scan automatically for the best available wireless frequency. Also included are an F-112 handheld microphone for wired or wireless configuration, and a pair of MDR-7506 professional headphones for critical listening of audio sources.
The Xperia tablet PC allows for playback of clips or teleprompting. It can also be used for watching the completed videos.
Sony Creative Software’s Vegas Pro Software is perfect for editing the clips just captured and for adding that finished look to video creations.
Essential for keeping the camera steady and making smooth pans and tilts, the tripod also has a remote control built in for capturing smooth zoom shots.
The included on-camera LED video light is dimmable and can be set to match both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions while staying cool to the touch. It uses the same rechargeable batteries that the camera uses and even works on AA batteries.
Designed for maximum protection, the lightweight backpack includes a rain cover and work mat where gear can be laid out.
