The HXR-NX5U camcorder is the first product of the Sony NXCAM generation, and a new category of tapeless memory camcorder, providing an ideal balance of power and performance in the digital age.
Utilizing the revolutionary AVCHD format, this camcorder offers long duration recording - with dual memory slots - on affordable consumer memory cards. As it facilitates a totally IT-based workflow, the HXR-NX5U has the potential to profoundly change the way content is created. Simultaneous hybrid recording is available in HD and SD formats, using the optional HXR-FMU128 flash memory unit. In any format, breathtaking picture quality is assured with proven features such as a state-of-the-art G Lens and three Exmor CMOS sensors with a ClearVid array.
Shoot and Walk with Active SteadyShot
A new feature of the HXR-NX5U is Active SteadyShot. This useful feature effectively reduces hand-held camera shake. The improvement is particularly noticeable when using wide-angle framing. It is an essential feature when holding the camcorder by hand, and especially for projects that are recorded mainly in the field. It is also ideal when the subject is moving and must be followed, for example in news gathering or at weddings. Shooting from inside a moving vehicle is another useful application for the Active SteadyShot feature. It significantly reduces the need for external stabilization systems.
Improved stabilization allows the user to concentrate more on composition and shot transition, rather than worry about how to stabilize the camera. Depending on the shooting environment, users can select normal SteadyShot feature or Active SteadyShot feature for hand-held applications. When not in use, the stabilization feature can be easily switched off.
