Sony shows new high-end HD camcorders for Japan

Sony has just introduced a pair of camcorders, including a professional variant of its NEX-VG10 with the NEX-FS100JK. There is also the more affordable and more compact HXR-NX70J. Both belong to Sony's NXCAM range but only the former's lenses are swappable.

The NEX-FS100JK otherwise uses a Super 35mm format and the company's Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor. It can record 1080p video at 60 frames per second in AVCHD format at 28Mbps. Standard def content is saved in MPEG-2 format. The storage media is SDXC, SDHC and SD cards in addition to Memory Stick Pro Duo Class 4 cards. There is an HS-SDI output for pros in addition to the more common, consumer-grade HDMI and XLR outputs.

It arrives in Japan later this spring, priced at nearly 690,000 Yen (the equivalent of just over $8,500).

The compact HXR-NX70J has a 6.65Mpix Exmor R CMOS sensor and a fixed G-series Sony lens with a 10x optical zoom. It records AVCHD 1080/60p video at 28Mbps along with MPEG-2 PS SD videos. There is 96MB of built-in memory and a Memory Stick slot and SDXC Class 4-compatbile memory slot. XLR inputs are present.

This camera is also due in the summer in Japan only so far, priced at 330,750 Yen (nearly $4,100).
