Sony NX30

Available Today

The Sony HXR-NX30 handheld camcorder utilizes a 1/2.88 ExmorR sensor to capture Full HD 1080p at 60 fps, as well as digital still images to a 96GB internal hard drive. The camcorder also features 26-260mm lens designed by Carl Zeiss, XLR inputs, SD card slots for extending recording time, and a built in projector for video playback.

  • Wide Angle Lens with Balanced Optical Steady Shot. The HXR-NX30 comes equipped with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens providing high contrast and sharp image quality from 26mm to 260mm (35mm equivalent). Sony’s new Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system mounts the lens within a gyroscope and pairs it with traditional electronic image stabilization for added stability while shooting handheld.
  • Capture Professional Audio. The HXR-NX30 features an audio unit equipped with two XLR inputs for connecting high end microphones. Furthermore, the inputs have the ability to supply phantom power and can be leveled individually for 2 channel audio capture.
  • Built in Projector. A projector built into the back of the LCD, offers users the ability to display footage by projecting it onto a screen or “flat near white surface”. The projector’s output is near 20 lumens which is capable of producing up to a 100" diagonal image.
