Capture 3D and 2D at 1920 x 1090 Full HD
The HXR-NX3D1E incorporates two built-in cameras for capturing 3D and 2D images. Each of the two cameras feature a high-quality Sony G lens and a high-sensitivity, back-illuminated 1/4-inch Exmor R CMOS image sensor for recording 1920 x 1080 Full HD left and right images.
Large capacity internal 96GB flash memory
The HXR-NX3D1E incorporates a large capacity, internal 96GB flash memory that records up to 7.5 hours of 3D images at 28Mbps. The camcorder also contains a slot for MemorySticks and SD cards.
Simplify workflows with MVC or AVCHD recording
The HXR-NX3D1E offers simple 3D and 2D editing workflows with recording as either Multi-View Coding (MVC) files or AVCHD files. The camcorder uses MVC to record left and right video clips as a single file. This enables you to work natively with Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d software. MVC video files can be handled as unified 3D clips to import left and right channel clips together, eliminating the need for time-consuming pairing. The HXR-NX3D1E's supplied Contents Management Utility 2.1 software also enables the conversion of the MVC files to 2D AVCHD files with independent left and right channels. With these capabilities, the HXR-NX3D1E can be used in a wide range of NLE systems.
3-way image stabilising technology
The HXR-NX3D1E incorporates Active SteadyShot 3-way image stabilising technology that corrects up/down, left/right and rotational motion when shooting in 3D. Recording stable 3D images with minimal shake is possible even with hand-held shooting.
Powerful 10x optical zoom
The HXR-NX3D1E has a powerful 10x optical zoom that lets you zoom from 34.4mm to 344mm (when converted to its 35mm equivalent) when shooting in 3D. Frame composition while zooming is also possible with the same feel as when shooting in 2D.
Adjust disparity of 3D images with ease
The HXR-NX3D1E features simple 3D disparity adjustment to control the perceived 3D depth of vision between the left and right image. The two parallel lenses are mounted 31mm apart and disparity adjustment allows you to change the read-out areas of the left and right CMOS image sensors so that they are closer together or further apart. The control of 3D depth is even possible during shooting using a manual dial.
Note: When capturing 3D images, the minimum shooting distance is 80cm (at a wide-angle setting).
Monitor 3D images without glasses
The HXR-NX3D1E features a 3.5-inch LCD display that lets you preview 3D images while you shoot without the need to wear special 3D glasses. You can also switch between 2D and 3D displays. In 3D mode, the camcorder allows you to display separate left and right images or a composite mix of left and right images (to make it easier to monitor any disparity in the 3D image).
Select HDMI output of 3D images
You can select the HDMI output of 3D images for different monitoring requirements. The Frame Packing mode provides Full HD output of alternate left and right images. The Side-by-Side mode provides output of horizontally compressed left and right images packaged into a single frame. Select Frame Packing for a standard consumer 3D TV and Side-by-Side for a professional 3D monitor. Output is also possible via an HDMI/HD-SDI converter to enable the use of a wide range of 3D monitors.
Record a wide range of video formats
The HXR-NX3D1E is designed to be compatible with a wide range of video formats. In 3D, you can record at 1080/60i/50i/24p. In 2D, you can record 1080/60p/60i/50p/50i/30p/24p.
Record professional LPCM audio
The HXR-NX3D1E features two built-in balanced XLR audio inputs and has phantom power and attenuation options for professional, 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.
Professional shotgun microphone
The HXR-NX3D1E features an ECM-XM1 shotgun microphone mounted on top of the handle to provide professional audio recording performance similar to larger shoulder-mounted ENG style cameras.
Back up direct to external Hard Disk Drive
The HXR-NX3D1E allows you to back up important shots directly to a separately sold external Hard Disk Drive (HDD) without the need for a computer. The HXR-NX3D1E can also access videos stored on an external HDD for playback on a 3D TV, allowing you to utilise the camcorder's handy 3D playback features.
