Palm-sized camcorder with outstanding picture quality
The HXR-NX30 is an ultra-compact, palm-sized, professional NXCAM camcorder compatible with the latest full HD formats including 1080/50p video. It features a 26.0mm ultra wide-angle lens with 10x optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 26-260mm) and a back-illuminated 1/2.88-inch type Exmor R CMOS sensor for outstanding versatility.

Like other NXCAM camcorders, it comes with the features professional users demand, including flexible timecode/user bit settings and XLR audio inputs for high reliability and high sound quality.

Advanced image stabilisation
One of the HXR-NX30E's biggest advantages is the Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization system. This allows the entire optical block, from the lens to the image sensor, to "float" and absorb movement from the body. The result is extremely effective image stabilization even when zooming in, something previously difficult to achieve, providing handheld shooting with a new level of image stability.

Built-in projector to view rushes
A built-in projector can project images up to 100 inches wide (when projecting 5m from a screen), enabling production crew to easily check the rushes at the end of the shoot.

Ultimate mobile camcorder for the professional videographers

Sony's HXR-NX30 is an ultra-compact, palm-size, professional NXCAM camcorder compatible with the latest FULL HD formats including 1080/50p video. It features a 26.0mm ultra wide-angle lens with 10x optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 26-260mm), and a backilluminated Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for outstanding versatility. Like other NXCAM camcorders, it comes with the features professional users demand, including flexible timecode/user bit settings and XLR audio inputs for high reliability and high sound quality. One of the HXR-NX30P's biggest advantages is the newly developed Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization system. This allows the entire optical block, from the lens to the image sensor, to "float" and absorb movement from the body. The result is extremely effective image stabilization even when zooming in, something previously difficult to achieve, ensuring handheld shooting with a new level of image stability. It is an ideal feature if you are out in the field alone and handheld operation is required whilewalking or using the zoom. Designed to meet the needs of a wide range of professional situations, the lightweight, compact and affordable HXR NX30U is a powerful tool for gathering footage alone and as a B-camera during multi-camera shoots.

Ultra Wide-angle 26.0mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens and Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor

The HXRNX30P comes with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens that suppresses unwanted reflections to assure faithful color reproduction. It also provides high contrast and high image quality with exceptional resolution from 26.0mm wide angle to 260mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). Thanks to the 6-blade iris diaphragm, you can enjoy exceptionally realistic expression of natural light. And even when shooting dark scenes, the back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor provides high sensitivity and low noise that are hard to believe fromsuch a compact unit. What is more, using a 1/2.88-inch type sensor with an aspect ratio of 16:9 is ideal for wide-angle shooting. This lets you record images with even higher definition.


26mm (HXR-NX30)

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™
The innovative Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization system eliminates the influence of vibrations from the body by enclosing the entire optical block, from the lens to the image sensor, in a "floating" space. Combined with electronic image stabilization that compensates for rotation around the optical axis, this new system provides powerful image stabilization even when shooting whilst zooming, which was previously difficult to achieve. So now you can record stable images with minimal blur, every time.

To optimize the effect of Balanced Optical SteadyShot™, the HXR-NX30P features a FIXED SHOT mode. Press a button and this expands the movable range of the optical block to keep you locked on your subject. This is particularly convenient when you want to maintain the same shooting angle for an extended period.


AVCHD 2.0 1920 x 1080 Full HD 60p Recording with 24.1 Mega (6544 x 3680) pixels*1 still image capture*2
You can shoot at 60fps progressive (1080/60p) with 1920x1080 Full HD resolution. And using a 24p timeline setting with AVCHD 2.0 compatible NLE software enables conversion to smooth slow-motion images up to 2.5x slower. You can also select 1280x720 60p and a wide range of other formats. *1: Realized using the “By Pixel Super Resolution” technology. *2: Dual Rec is not active while recording mode is set to FX or PS.

Timecode/User Bit Recording and HDMI Embedded Timecode Output
The HXRNX30 features the important professional camcorder functions of timecode and user bit settings. Like other NXCAM camcorders, the HXR-NX30P’s timecodes can be centrally reset using the supplied infrared remote control to allow easy synchronization of video from multiple cameras. Using NLE software, live footage shot with multiple NXCAM camcorders can be efficiently edited with timecode sync. Timecodes and user bits can also be output through an HDMI jack.

96GB embedded Flash Memory and Memory Stick / SD Multi Card Slot
The built-in 96GB embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 40 hours of high definition video footage in HD LP mode with Dolby Digital audio mode. And there is an amulet-card slot that lets you record video images on Memory Stick PRO Duo™ and SD cards, giving you a range of options in your choice of recording media. You can also use these readily available cards to copy data from internal memory.

XLR Adaptor with Selectable Phantom Power and ECM-XM1 Shotgun Microphone Enabling High-Quality Linear PCM Recording

The detachable handle has an ergonomic design that is comfortable and compact. Two balanced XLR audio inputs are built-in with phantom power and attenuation options that professional users require for clean sound quality. Default audio settings for XLR recording are highlighted in green for easy reference in the field in order to reduce operator error under difficult lighting conditions. The ECM-XM1 shotgun microphone mounted on top of the handle provides audio recording performance similar to larger shoulder-mounted ENG style cameras. The HXR NX30U is also ready to record high-quality 48kHz/16 bit Linear PCM audio.

Built-in Light
You can use this built-in light as a flash when shooting still images or as an auxiliary light source when recording video. Using the NightShot mode is particularly effective when recording in low-light conditions and allows you to capture otherwise impossible shots.

Built-in Projector
A built-in projector can project images up to 100 inches wide (when projecting 5m from a screen, 40 inches wide when projecting 2m from a screen). Large-screen projection of images enables all the staff involved to check the rushes at the end of the shoot and reduces the need for an external display.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time

Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver
A built-in GPS receiver makes the HXR-NX30P an ideal choice for professional videographers. The receiver gives you the ability to “tag” your shooting locations as a future reference if you need to return to the same location or to create a log of areas covered when surveying remote locations. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder’s clock to the proper time zone when international travel is part of your assignment. Your locations can be tracked on Google Maps™ and all GPS data can be extracted with a CMU is supplied PC software.

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC
Store your memories or backup important shots by copying footage directly from your camcorder to an external hard disk drive*, which is sold separately, all without the need for a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.
