The HXR-NX100 Full HD NXCAM Camcorder from Sony brings high-quality performance, adaptability, and ease of use to a compact, handheld body. The camcorder features a single Exmor R sensor with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, Sony G lens with 12x optical zoom range, and a 24x Clear Image Zoom. The integrated zoom lens features individual lens control rings for focus, iris, and zoom. The lens can be used in either full-auto mode with servo control, or as a completely manually operated lens.
The camera supports storing up to six picture profiles and allows you share profiles between multiple NX100 camcorders. The camera also supports Sony's Slow- and Quick-Motion for shooting HD video at variable frame rates. Recording to a variety of formats, frame rates, and codecs, the camcorder supports the XAVC S codec recording Full HD video at up to 59.94p, AVCHD 2.0 up to 59.94p, and DV for SD video. Your footage is recorded to media via 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. Two 3-pin XLR audio inputs support line, mic, and mic + 48 V (phantom power) for using professional microphones. The camera also includes IR capability for shooting in extremely dim lighting conditions, as well as date/time stamp functionality.
Two media slots can be used to record in either "SIMUL" or "RELAY" mode. "SIMUL" mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards, while "RELAY" mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full.
You can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the HXR-NX100, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in "SIMUL" mode.
You can copy the settings from one HXR-NX100 to another HXR-NX100, so the user can shoot with multiple cameras in the same settings. The picture profiles only work with the same model of camera.
