The Sony HXR-NX3 is a professional camcorder with many impressive features, including Clear Image Zoom with Super Resolution Technology, which provides an extended 40x zoom range with excellent clarity, detail and no effective pixel loss.

 

 

Original Sony lens, sensor, and LSI technology for impressive imagery

The HXR-NX3 imaging advantage begins with a superb Sony G Lens that offers stunning image quality as well as a wide zoom range. Behind that lens is a 1920x1080 full HD 3x Exmor CMOS sensors system with three 1/2.8-inch sensors providing a 2.07 million effective pixel count at the 16:9 aspect ratio. Red, blue, and green light are independently captured by separate image sensors, contributing to high resolution, high sensitivity, and wide dynamic range. An advanced LSI (that includes advanced noise reduction, improved detail reproduction, and several distortion correction technologies) handles image processing and delivers notable improvements in overall image quality. Recorded images are remarkably lifelike in texture and detail.

 

40x Clear Image Zoom (20x optical zoom and 2x Clear Image Zoom)

The high-performance Sony G Lens provided with the HXR-NX3 offers an expansive 28.8 mm (35mm full-frame format equivalent) angle of view at the wide end, with a 20x optical zoom range that will easily cover most shooting situations. When more reach is required, Clear Image Zoom employs Super Resolution Technology to provide image quality rivalling that of the lens’s optical zoom over a 40x range.

 

AVCHD 2.0 (1080/50p) and DV recordings

HD video is recorded in AVCHD 2.0 format with a high 50 fps frame rate option. 50i and 25p modes provide playback compatibility with Blu-ray players. The ability to record in DV format is also provided for users who prefer a DV workflow and who need to work in a DV compatible non-linear editing environment.

 

Slow & Quick Motion

Smooth slow or quick motion with full HD quality is available without any extra processing. 2x slow motion can be easily achieved by setting the recording format to 25p and the frame rate to 50 fps. The frame rate can also be set to 1 fps for 50x quick motion.

 

Dual media slots, Simul or Relay recording, and independent record control

Two media slots can 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. The user can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the HXR-NX3, 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.

 

Built-in LED video light*

A built-in LED video light is included just above the camcorder’s built-in microphone, providing convenient illumination for a wide range of shooting situations and minimising the need to carry external lighting equipment. Illumination is approximately 200 lux/1m (approx. 800 lux/0.5m) with a beam angle of 30° and a colour temperature of approximately 5500K.

*An external microphone connected via the XLR connector may cast a shadow if used simultaneously with the built-in LED video light.

 

WiFi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with PlayMemories™ Mobile remote control*

The HXR-NX3 can be remotely controlled from a smartphone or tablet computer (iOS 4.3 through 7.0 or Android 2.3 through 4.3) via a WiFi connection, and recorded video files can be transferred from camcorder to smartphone in MP4 format.** One-touch authentication is also possible with smartphones that offer NFC connectivity. Remote control features include monitoring of camera material on the smartphone display, record start/stop, zoom, aperture, and touch AF. The required PlayMemories Mobile smartphone application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.

* WiFi operation cannot be guaranteed with all smartphones and tablet computers. ** The HXR-NX3 allows simultaneous MP4 + AVCHD recording except for the 1080/50P.

 

Timecode and HDMI embedded timecode output

Timecode and user bit settings are important features for professional applications. Timecode is essential for efficient non-linear editing of live footage from multiple NXCAM camcorders. Like other Sony NXCAM camcorders, HXR-NX3 timecode can be reset from the supplied infrared remote control unit, and this allows multiple cameras to be reset simultaneously for easy synchronisation. For extra sync versatility, timecode and user bits can also be output via the camcorder’s HDMI jack.

 

Intelligent Auto

The Intelligent Auto* feature makes it easy to capture beautiful images in a wide variety of shooting situations. This handy feature automatically selects the optimum scene setting from three groups of ten scenes. For example, Intelligent Auto might detect that the user is walking while shooting and automatically select the “Walk” setting from the “Camera Shake” group to ensure that optimum image quality is achieved.

* Image stabilisation is automatically set to ACTIVE mode when using the iAuto feature.

 

Scene Selection

Scene Selection provides professional users with seven presets optimised for situations likely to be encountered on assignments. For example, the Sunrise & Sunset preset instantly optimises the camcorder settings for beautiful reproduction of sunsets or sunrises. The Spotlight preset is ideal for shooting events or similar situations that involve spotlights and stage lighting.

Scene Selection is just one more way that the HXR-NX3 can make your job easier.
