Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D 96GB Compact Camcorder Reviews 2012




Sony HXR-NX3D1 review

Preview 3D images in the 3.5 inch LCD of the Sony HXR-NX3D1 without the need for 3D glasses or switch between 3D and 2D. The 2D recording of the HXR-NX3D1 is 1920 x 1080 60p,60i,50p,50i,25p and 24p while 3D records 1920 x 1080 (60i/50i/24p).

With some features of the NXCAM line of Professional camcorders, the Sony HXR-NX3D1 3D compact camcorder packs a 1/4″ Exmor R CMOS sensor with 12x Sony “G” lens reduced to 10x in 3D mode recording to the AVCHD format with multi-view coding (MVC).

The Sony HXR-NX3D1 convergence adjusts with the turn of a dial which shifts the active image window to increase or decrease the stereo effect of the movie. Choose to view just the right or left image in the 3.5 inch LCD or a mix of both. The Sony HXR-NX3D1 3D compact camcorder 3.5 inch LCD screen has touch screen controls.

The HXR-NX3D1 HDMI jack to a 3D TV is selectable between Frame Packing with Full HD output of alternate left and right images with Sony Vegas Pro editing software which fully supports the MVC video files.

Bitrate is only 28 Mb/s but this is more than compensated for with stunning 3D images, great autofocus with accurate exposure, very good image stabilization and perfect sound quality regardless whether using the XLR inputs or built-in microphone.
