Sony has added a new model to its range of NXCAM cameras.

The HXR-NX3 features Sony’s 3CMOS Sensor system with three 1/2.8” sensors and captures AVCHD 2.0, 1080/50P images.

The camera can be remotely controlled via a WiFi connection by iOS and Android devices and video files can be transferred from the camera to a smartphone.

Smartphones or tablets can monitor camera material on the smartphone display, start/stop recording, zoom, adjust iris and operate the touch autofocus function.

The HXR-NX3 can simultaneously record MP4 (720p, 3Mbps) files that can be transferred wirelessly from the camcorder to a smartphone or tablet computer with Sony’s PlayMemories app.

Sony Europe strategic planning manager Kanta Yamamoto said: “The HXR-NX3 is a fantastic addition to the Sony NXCAM line-up especially for filmmakers working for corporate, event, wedding and education videos.

“We also expect the MP4 function to make it a hit with web journalists who need to share images with colleagues as quickly as possible, while the WiFi remote and built-in LED video light can make filming interviews easier.”

The HXR-NX3 will be available in Europe from the end of January for £2,600.
