More educational institutions across Australia are welcoming students enrolling in film and television courses. Their introductory camera of choice: Sony’s HXR-NX5P.
The HXR-NX5P, one of the biggest selling models in Sony’s popular NXCAM family of camcorders, sits between the weatherproof HXRNX70P and the NEX-FS100P Digital Super 35mm models. It records 1920×1080 images at 24Mbps using the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec and features relay recording to dual memory slots. The camera’s three 1/3” Exmor CMOS sensors also deliver the image quality required for industry acceptance, without the cost of higher end technologies.
