4K or HD : Simply superb image quality
A large, 20 megapixel* 1.0 type sensor delivers stunning image quality in 4K (3840×2160) or Full-HD at 50Mbps. Its 1.0 sensor is brighter, has higher resolution and offers more bokeh with a shallow depth of field. NX200 gives you the flexibility to work the way you want to.
Well-balanced colour reproduction
Natural skin colours and rich mid-range colours deliver vivid, yet true-to-life imagery regardless of exposure setting. It’s perfect for capturing live events such as seminars, weddings and houses of worship. NX200’s newly developed gamma curve provides a vibrant look ready to share as soon as you export.
The professional’s choice
There’s no need to choose between professional features and superb 4K imaging at an entry level price-point. Advanced manual controls, including three independent manual lens rings, built-in 4-step ND filters and class-leading 4K and Full-HD performance make NX200 a choice you can rely upon for live events, corporate, education and wedding videography.
Stunning quality from a large 1.0 type sensor
The HXR-NX200’s single 20 megapixel* 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor is approximately the same size as a 16mm film frame and seven times larger than three 1/4.7 type sensors combined. The key benefit of this large size is low noise and less blur because more light reaches the sensor, offering clear and steady pictures even in a dark scene with minimum illumination 1.7 lux**. The large sensor size also enables beautiful background defocussing (bokeh) to enable you to focus on what you want to show and defocus the rest of the image.
*14.2 million effective pixels.
**LOW LUX mode.
Picture Profiles with New Gamma Curve
The default look for NX200 uses an all-new gamma curve specifically developed to accurately realize brilliant and deep colors, with true-to-life skin tones. Tuned in consultation with leading videographers, it avoids oversaturation of brightly lit subjects and provides a more natural look. The NX200 has six Picture Profile settings to choose from, each of which can be individually customised to your requirements
Sony G Lens with 24x Clear Image Zoom (FHD)
A fixed 29mm wide-angle lens with 12x optical zoom makes it easy to capture even the most expansive landscape scenes while also offering superb clarity and sharpness – maximising the performance of the NX200’s large 1.0 type sensor.
The G Lens is Sony’s own camera lens family, designed and manufactured to the high standards of optical performance.
In addition, your ability to get into close with the most distant scenes is aided by Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom feature. Once you’ve zoomed in at maximum 12x optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution Technology can enlarge the image by an additional 150% in 4K and 200% in HD while still preserving image quality. In addition, zoom performance can be doubled at any point with a digital extender by up to 24x.
Manual operability in professional handy design
The HXR-NX200 is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use shooting experience. Three manual, independent lens rings enables smooth, natural adjustment of focussing, zooming and iris control. It can also be used in full-auto mode or completely manual for maximum creative control. Manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift and easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN and shutter speed. The white balance is simple to adjust by colour temperature in convenient 100K steps.
Multi-format recording with 100Mbps XAVC S 4K, HD and DV
The HXR-NX200 offers superb all-round performance whatever your workflow.
For 4K or Full-HD production, XAVC S offers stunning picture quality, but also workflow flexibility and storage efficiency. Compared to AVCHD, XAVC S captures more details and less noise thanks to the higher bitrate, while also being supported by all the major non-linear editors.
NX200 also offers the option to record HD in AVCHD or DV, making it easy to integrate your content into existing workflows. NX200 offers PAL-only recording frame rates of 25p 4K:QFHD 3840×2160 50p, 50i, 25p Full HD and 50i SD.
Dual media slots for recording flexibility
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the NX200 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards.
RELAY mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while SIMUL mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The NX200’s two Start/Stop buttons on the handle grip, and camcorder body, can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in SIMUL mode
