BASINGSTOKE, UK, March 23, 2011 – Sony today revealed two new professional camcorders based on extensive customer feedback in the "NXCAM™" line-up. The NEX-FS100E is a new E-mount professional camcorder equipped with a Super 35mm motion picture sensor and is a further addition to Sony's 35mm line-up. The HXR-NX70E is the world's first rain and dust proof professional HD camcorder and is ideal for use in unforgiving environments. Sony's expanding NXCAM line-up, including the existing HXR-NX5E provides a superb solution to many shooting applications.
The NEX-FS100E – Digital Super 35mm made affordable.
Originally announced in November 2010, Sony can now reveal the full specifications of the new NEX-FS100E. The NEX-FS100E is equipped with an 'Exmor™' Super 35 CMOS sensor specifically designed for shooting motion pictures. This large, super 35mm equivalent sensor is capable of producing footage with a shallow depth of field similar to that of a film camera. Thanks to this cutting edge sensor technology, it is possible to record the image in 1080/50p AVCHD format as well as capturing 1080p quality slow and quick motion.
"The NEX-FS100E NXCAM Super 35mm camcorder enables budget content creators and videographers to experience a new level of cinematic expression" said Bill Drummond, Strategic Marketing Manager, of Sony Professional. "Sony has responded to professional user feedback to create this new camcorder with an ergonomically designed body and accessories offering really flexibility in use."
The NEX-FS100E adopts the Sony E-mount interchangeable lens system used in the "?" series NEX-5, 3 and NEX-VG10E "Handycam®". It's very short flange back distance (the distance between lens mount surface and sensor surface) allows various "?" A-mount lenses be mounted via a mount adaptor (LA-EA1). It is also possible to attach a huge range of other lenses, such as PL mount lenses using third-party mount adaptors*. With such flexibility, users will be able to experiment with numerous creative options by exploiting the characteristics of different optics.
* Not all types of adaptors and lenses are guaranteed. For details, please ask the adaptor manufacturers.
The NEX-FS100EK lens kit model comes supplied with the E18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS zoom Lens which gives users optical Steadyshot™ and auto focus.
The NEX-FS100E accepts affordable and readily available Memory Stick PRO Duo™ or SDHC cards. It is capable of recording images at various frame rates providing the added creative freedom of slow and quick motion with full HD. The camera operator can simply adjust the frame rate without using converters or editing software, making the camera ideal for commercials and music videos, as well as action scenes in budget movies for example. The grip, handle and hybrid LCD viewfinder are detachable also making it ideal for handheld scenes and shooting in confined locations.
