On March 23rd, 2011, Sony revealed two new professional camcorders in the “NXCAM™” line-up – each developed in response to extensive customer research. The NEX-FS100E is a new E-mount professional camcorder, equipped with a Super 35mm motion picture sensor, and is a further addition to Sony’s 35mm line-up. The HXR-NX70E is the world’s first rain and dust proof professional HD camcorder and is ideal for use by journalists and documentary makers in unforgiving environments. Sony’s expanding NXCAM line-up, including the already available HXR-NX5E, provides a superb solution to many shooting applications.

NEX-FS100E – Digital Super 35mm made affordable

Originally announced in November 2010, Sony can now reveal the full specifications of the new NEX-FS100E. The NEX-FS100E is equipped with an “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS Sensor specifically designed for shooting motion pictures ideal for commercials and music videos, as well as action scenes in budget drama for example. This high sensitivity, large format sensor is capable of producing footage with shallow depth of field similar to that of a film camera for a new level of expression. The sensor also features the optimum number of effective pixels for shooting HD moving images. At a high 50fps in all-pixel scan mode, this allows images to be captured with less colour aliasing, jaggedness and rolling shutter than regular DSLR cameras, while providing the sensitivity to shoot at a minimum illumination of 0.28lux*. Another advantage of “Exmor” technology is minimal noise when shooting low-light scenes.
