Sony is developing a new professional-level camcorder that's compatible with the E-mount interchangeable lens system used by the NEX-5 camera and NEX-VG10 handycam
Sony says that the NXCAM HD will record video in AVCHD but is aiming to have 1080p high definition in place at launch, which will benefit from MPEG4-AVC/H.264 compression
Sony is aiming to furnish professionals with a new E-mount interchangeable lens camcorder by the middle of next year. The company says that the NXCAM HD model is still under development, but should sit at the entry level end of the professional camcorder market. In addition to being compatible with the E-mount lens system, users will also be able to attach A-mount and third party lenses via mount adapters.
