* Compatible camcorders only.
HXR-NX5R Full HD Camcorder
Rich colour imagery
The NX5R offers latest generation imaging performance, with Full-HD progressive image capture rather than the interlaced output of the original HXR-NX5. Its three 1/2.8-type Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors provide 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 (featuring intelligent noise reduction, enhanced detail reproduction and distortion correction technologies) delivers remarkably lifelike images.
Built-in LED lighting
An easily adjustable brightness LED video light is positioned 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.
Networked for high usability
Live internet stream from any event using hassle-free Ustream™ service or a generic streaming mode for a local area network for a secure corporate presentation.
Remote control makes the NX5R perfect for multi-camera shoots. Mount on a tripod and use your smart phone or tablet to monitor and control focus, zoom, iris, REC START/STOP and more*.
FTP allows you to click and send Full-HD content to your editor for fast breaking news stories.
Wide choice of connections including 3G-SDI
The NX5R provides all the connectivity options professionals expect, including 3G-SDI (Full HD 50p/60p output), plus REMOTE, composite (BNC) and audio XLR terminals.
Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe
The NX5R takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 (sold separately).
Dual media slots
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the NX5R has dual media slots compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards as well as Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) and PRO-HG Duo. Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full; Simul mode allows simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create a back-up). Start/Stop buttons on the NX5R’s handle grip and camcorder body can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards in Simul mode.
Get closer with 40x zoom
The NX5R’S high-performance Sony G lens offers an expansive 28.8 mm (35mm full-frame format equivalent) angle of view at the wide end and a stunning 40X zoom.The 20x optical zoom range will easily cover most shooting situations, but when more reach is required, Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom employs Super Resolution Technology to double your optical zoom up to 40x while still delivering exceptional image quality.
The NX5R is designed to provide the absolute best performance for Full HD productions, recording in AVCHD and DV to support proven legacy workflows, as well as the newer, more advanced XAVC S at 50Mbps.
XAVC S offers stunning picture quality, but also workflow flexibility and storage efficiency. In XAVC S, the NX5R uses the MP4 file format, sampling at 50Mbps. Compared to AVCHD, XAVC S 50Mbps captures more details and less noise thanks to the higher bitrate.
Depending on your region, separate models are available offering recording frame rates of 50p Full HD and 50i SD (PAL model), or 60p Full HD and 60i SD (NTSC model).
All of the NX5R’s key functions are at your fingertips – from intuitive Direct Menu controls to a responsive joystick on the hand grip. Direct Menu options display on-screen, so shooting parameters can be changed quickly and conveniently without taking your eyes off the action.
However you choose to shoot, the NX5R adapts to fit your style. It has a high visibility wide viewing angle and high contrast 0.39-type 1440K OLED viewfinder and an easily adjustable, flip-out 3.5-type 1550K LCD, for precision monitoring and low latency.
The NX5R was designed alongside Sony’s MCX-500 Multi Camera Live Producer, a robust and cost-effective switcher that makes it easy for one person to run a multi-camera live event shoot. When used with the MCX-500 and Remote Commander, a Tally indicator will automatically appear on each NX5R’s LCD panel and Electronic View Finder – a red icon indicates when the shot is live (PGM) while Green indicates preview mode (PVW). The MCX-500 supports up to 9 video inputs, 5 channel stereo inputs including XLR with both internal recording and live streaming via Ustream™.
