The HXR-NX3/1E NXCAM Professional Handheld Camcorder from Sony is designed for European Video Standards and brings high-quality performance, adaptability, and ease of use to a compact, handheld body. The camcorder features a 3-chip Exmor sensor with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, Sony G lens with 20x optical zoom range, and a 40x Clear Image Zoom for 35mm equivalent focal lengths up to 1152mm. It also features Wi-Fi connectivity for transferring video files from the camcorder to mobile devices, as well as controlling camera functions from your smartphone or tablet. A network-friendly 720p, 3 Mbps MP4 recording option allows for easy transfer and compatibility with computer, smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

The HXR-NX3/1E records video using the AVCHD 2.0 format, with framerates up to 50p for recording smooth motion. 50i and 25p modes are also available. You can also record in the DV format, letting you fit the camcorder into existing DV workflows. Media is recorded to two SD memory card slots. You can choose to record simultaneously to both cards, or use the relay mode which switches recording automatically to the second memory card when the first one is full. 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: Battery and battery charger are included, however a shotgun microphone is not included.

3 Exmor CMOS Sensors
The HXR-NX3E/1E 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 25p, 50i, and 50p. The camcorder also offers 720/50p 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.
NFC One-Touch Remote
Near-field Communication (NFC) chipset allows users to establish a Wi-Fi connection simply by touching an NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet on the camcorder.
