HXR-NX3/1 Spec Sheet


A multi-purpose professional camcorder offering exceptional image quality and three Full HD sensors ready to maximise your creative potential

The HXR-NX3 is a professional camcorder that features three 1/2.8-inch Exmor™ CMOS sensors for outstanding image quality. Dual media slots allow simultaneous or relay recording in AVCHD 2.0 (1080/50p) format. There is also a Slow & Quick Motion feature that achieves smooth 2x slow motion when recording at 25p or 50x quick motion when 1 frame per second is recorded in 50p. In addition to the 20x optical zoom, Clear Image Zoom with Super Resolution Technology provides an extended 40x zoom range with excellent clarity and detail and no effective pixel loss. A built-in LED light, WiFi/NFC remote control capability, and a larger 3.5 inch LCD panel for enhanced viewing add to the versatility of this multi-purpose camcorder, putting the finishing touches on an advanced system that offers unprecedented video recording freedom.

  • Original Full HD Sony sensor for impressive imagery

    The 1920x1080 full HD 3x Exmor CMOS sensors system provides a 2.07 million effective pixel count in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Red, blue, and green light are independently and accurately captured by separate image sensors, contributing to high resolution, high sensitivity, and wide dynamic range that translate to extraordinarily natural colour reproduction.

  • High performance Sony G lens with 40x zoom range.

    Provides 28.8mm (35mm full-frame format equivalent) angle of view at the wide end. 20x optical zoom plus Clear Image Zoom provides total 40x zoom range, rivalling that of optical zoom. Clear Image Zoom offers effectively no quality loss and no pixel loss, with 2M full resolution kept using Super Resolution Technology.

  • AVCHD 2.0 (1080/50p) and DV recordings

    HD video is recorded in AVCHD 2.0 format with a high 50 fps frame rate that achieves smooth, natural subject motion. 50i and 25p modes provide playback compatibility with Blu-ray players. The camcorder can also record in DV standard definition.

  • Slow and quick motion options at Full HD

    2x slow motion can be easily achieved by setting the recording format to 25p and the frame rate to 50 fps. If you’d rather speed up the action the frame rate can be set to 1 fps for 50x quick motion.

  • Excellent low light recording

    Minimum illumination of 1.2lux (1/30) or 1.0 lux (1/25).
