Sony is teasing the development of a new pro-level NXCAM camcorder that uses the same E-Mount lenses found on the popular NEX-series of cameras, like the 18-200mm lens packaged with the Sony NEX-VG10.

Because the NXCAM uses features the E-Mount system, it can accept Sony Alpha mount lenses like the 70-400mm with the aid of the LA-EA1 adapter, which appears to be attached in the above screenshots.

Good news on the recording format front – it looks like the NXCAM will feature full 1920 x 1080 resolution in AVCHD format at a variety of frame rates, including 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p and the all-important 24p.  Check out the video below for the rest of the teaser.

HI Erick

Here comes again the format war,at the begining was SD then SDI I thought that with HD everything would be regulated by a single standard, the HDV and now sony throws a SUPER 35 AVCHD.

So the idea is to compress everything and make us believe is still HD what happened to the old 4:2:2 sampling rate.

I think it´s only a marketing bluff to drive purchases to the PROSUMER MARKET.

But let´s way and see.

Thanks for the info anyway.
