The first of the “what we’ve been waiting for” SLR sensor video camera, the NEX uses the same 23.4 × 15.6mm CMOS sensor as the Sony NEX mirrorless still camera system, 18 times larger than a standard camcorder sensor. This translates into a significant upgrade in pixel size and image quality, allowing you to record truly cinematic-looking video that gives you creative control over what’s in focus and what’s not. Whether shooting 1920 × 1080 video or 14.2MP stills.
The included 18-200mm OSS zoom lens is video-optimized to silently autofocus while providing optical image stabilization for potentially shaky shots. The lens mount is fully interchangeable with any Sony E mount lens, and with the separate LA-EA1 adapter Sony alpha lenses can also be mounted, providing a wide range of lenses for special effects. A bright, high-resolution 3" LCD screen swivels 180° for maximum viewing flexibility. There also is an included Quad Capsule stereo microphone, which adds the precise, high-quality audio you’ll need to match the lushness of your images. Headphone and external microphone jacks give you even more audio control. The dual accessory shoes open the door to many accessories for both still and video photography, including shotgun microphones and external flash lighting.
With full manual control of Iris, Shutter Speed, Gain, and White Balance via convenient hot keys and jog dial, you will be able to adapt to almost any lighting condition to get the best shot. Video can be recorded to SD cards in Sony’s AVCHD format at up to 24 Mbps that is compatible with all major video editing programs.
