This week Sony announced their new NXCAM Super-35, aka the FS100. This little camera has the same sensor as the PMW-F3, but with the feature set and price point of the NXCAM line of cameras. The FS100 has a small body design, not much larger than an HDSLR, but Sony packed in all the features that we find in a regular video camcorder. It has a high-resolution touch screen display on top, XLR inputs for pro audio, and a huge number of function buttons. The lens mount is the Sony E-mount, and the camera will be available with or without an 18-200mm lens. E-mount has a very shallow flange depth, so just about any lens can be mounted with an adapter. The FS100 records in the AVCHD format, and has an uncompressed HDMI output which can feed external recorders.
The FS100 will be released sometime this summer with a list price of $5,850. Read more about it on Sony’s website, and watch my video above to learn about this cool new camera.
