The Sony NEX-EA50M NXCAM Camcorder with 18-105mm f/4 Servo Zoom G Lens brings large-sensor, Full HD video recording to the masses. It inherits the same versatile semi-shoulder mount design from its predecessor--the NEX-EA50UH--but adds an updated Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and replaces the 18-200mm E-mount lens with an 18-105mm f/4 constant aperture Servo Zoom G lens. The lens provides quiet and continuous variable focus, zoom, and iris operation and features Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for smoother footage whether the camcorder is in your hands or on your shoulder.
The camcorder's E-mount allows you to use native Sony E-Mount lenses, such as the included 18-105mm servo zoom, as well as virtually any SLR, DSLR, or cine lenses through the addition of optional third party adapters. Behind the lens mount, you'll find a large APS-C sized CMOS sensor. Similar in size to Super 35, the APS-C sensor allows for cinematic images with a shallower depth of field than smaller sensor camcorders. The sensor can capture up to 1080p video at 24, 25, 30, 50, or 60 frames per second using the AVCHD codec, as well as still photos up to 16.1 megapixels. For professional audio capture, the camcorder has two XLR inputs, with an ECM-XM1 shotgun microphone included.
Media is recorded to an SD/SDHC/SDXC or Memory Stick PRO Duo card. The camcorder supports MS-PX "Mirroring Memory Stick" cards, which allows for two distinct segments to be recorded simultaneously to a single card, with built-in Error Correction Code to catch and correct errors as they happen. You can also connect and record to Sony's optional HXR-FMU128, a flash memory unit with a 128GB capacity. When connected, you can even simultaneously record HD video to the flash memory unit and the internal memory card for instant backup.
Footage is monitored using a 3.5" touchscreen LCD. When using an E-mount lens, you can active the Touch Focus function and pull focus simply by touching the LCD where you want the camera to focus. E-mount lenses also allow you to take advantage of the camcorder's face detection feature. Other features include a Multi Interface Shoe, LANC remote control port, and GPS location tagging.
