Sony develops “NXCAM” HD camcorders lineup with 35mm large format sensor and E-mount lens system

A a new type of E-mount interchangeable lens camcorders for professional use are under development by Sony Corporation. The new line is equipped with a Super-35mm equivalent large format CMOS sensor and will be available in the middle of 2011.

The new Super-35mm sensor used in the upcoming “NXCAM” HD camcorders is specially designed for capturing motion pictures and will have “extraordinary performance in terms of picture quality and sensitivity” and is able to create rich “Bokeh” effect (beautifully defocused image). The camcorders also will be compatible with E-mount interchangeable lens system, that is identical to the “α” series NEX-5, 3 and “Handycam” NEX-VG10, in addition, a very short flange back distance (the distance between lens mount surface and sensor surface) let various “α” A-mount lenses be mounted via a mount adaptor (LA-EA1) and also wii be possible to attach many other lenses using third-party mount adaptors.
