The Sony NEX-EA50 was initially believed to be priced at $4200 with an included 18-200mm servo zoom lens.  A pricing update from B&H, however, reveals that this kit will be only $3599.

Given the features available on this camcorder, I am quite impressed with the low price point.  The NEX-EA50 should be available in October.  You can order it here at B&H Photo.

The story alone is compelling enough to hear; however, 60 Minutes did a bang up job of capturing it on video with a mix of 14 ENG, DSLRs and GoPro cameras.  They mounted GoPro cameras on the rock wall, on the film crew climbers on the wall and even on Alex’s chalk bag belt (until he decided to ditch it mid-climb).
