Imagine having a professional camcorder that comes with 3 Full HD sensors and offers exceptional quality with images and recordings and can be used for some purposes.
That is exactly what makes the Sony HXR-NX3 the perfect camera for everyone.
Built with a 1/2.8-inch Exmor CMOS sensors, you can now use this camcorder to record 2x slow motion at 25p and 50x quick motion if you are recording at one frame per second. It also has a 20x
optical zoom capability with a Super Resolution Technology, ensuring you that your final shot will be clear, crisp and never loses a pixel.
So unleash your imagination in every shot and take all the beauty with just a click of your finger.
Having a 1920x1080 full HD 3x Exmor CMOs sensors system gives the Sony HXR-NX3 an impressive imagery that is worth mentioning over and over again and worth every bang of your buck.

Simply put it, a recorded video or image taken using this camcorder is more lifelike in detail and texture, what more can we say?
But specifically for those who prefer to record in DV format, the Sony HXR-NX3 knows this and made it available to you together with an AVCHD 2.0 and a frame rate of 50fps.

Sony HXR-NX3 Review
Lack of SDI input
This is an ideal choice of Camcorder for me, built in with a 20x fixed lens zoom. High quality sensor allows me to capture wonder video. However the following are some shortcomings.
1. Unlike its bigger brother HXR-NX5 ,It does not come with an SDI output, merely HDMI, thus it is not suitable for my events shot which I need to run a long cable to the mixer
2. The built in LED light will need a filter to make the light softer, and the light is not dimmable. - It should be adjustable
3. It does not support Sony MI Audio input - SMAD-P3
4. It will be good if the cameras support streaming function enable FTP upload
From the experience using Sony HXR-NX3 and HXR-NX5, I have learnt that both have its own strong features and discrepancies. Sony developed new HXR-NX5R upgraded version Camcorder that combine the best features from NX3 and NX5.
