The HXR-NX5R is the ultimate Full HD handheld camcorder – a feature-packed successor to the best-selling HXR-NX5 and HXR-NX3 with XAVC S recording, 3G-SDI output and wireless workflow. Trust in this multi-purpose workhorse for everything from corporate video to education, live events to weddings.
Stunning pictures made easy
Designed to get the job done quickly and efficiently, the NX5R’s advanced three 1/2.8-type Full HD Exmor CMOS system can be relied upon to deliver sharp, cleanly focused imagery in almost any shooting scenario. Recorded images are remarkably lifelike in texture and detail, while shooting is fast and hassle-free with all the NX5R’s key functions right at your fingertips. Direct Menu options display on-screen, so shooting parameters can be changed quickly and conveniently without taking your eyes off the action.
The NX5R’s advanced network functions mean there’s no need for expensive add-ons to take advantage of new business opportunities or speed-up your workflow efficiency. The HXR-NX5R is ready to go straight out of the box, whatever the business opportunity today or tomorrow – live streaming events, multi-camera shoots and FTPing breaking news to your editor are all just a button press away.
Simple multi-camera shoots
The NX5R is also an ideal partner for Sony’s innovative MCX-500 Multi Camera Live Producer* – an affordable, easy to operate and fully featured switcher that delivers broadcast quality results. Expand your business with multi-camera shoots for live presentation, live streaming and recording across a wide number of applications.
Everything you need
Forget about expensive accessories, the NX5R’s built-in features include an adjustable brightness LED video light, 3G-SDI terminal with Full HD 60p/50p output and advanced Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe to power and control key accessories. HXR-NX5 and HXR-NX3 accessories are fully compatible*, including Sony’s popular L-Series batteries, so your existing investment is protected. Widely available consumer SDHC and SDXC media make shooting with 5XR both economical and convenient.
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.
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.
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.
