Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

A crappy consumer codec on a Pro Cam. Good luck sony or to an NLE which consider Xavc-s a crappy codec

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

Sony really should start thinking in terms of better specs for 4K. I think 10-bit 4:2:2 is feasible at 150 Mbps, and 12-bit 4:2:2 at 200 Mbps would be nicer. Also, why won't they support DCI 4,096 x 2,160 on the 1-inch models when they offer it on the 1/2.3-inch Z100?

XAVC-S is pretty good from my experience and better than AVCHD. What NLE is causing you a problem. Edius will edit all of them XAVC, XAVC-L, XAVC-S with no problem.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

Media composer. Sony and Avid never develop a codec or ama plug-ins for Xavc-S as it is a consumer codec for consumer camcorder. For Media Composer exist a buggy ama plug-ins and it cost 495 $. This is the reason I'm moving to Edius....

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

I read somewhere that there's still a problem with XAVC-S and FCP10.2.1 also.

We don't know that yet. Maybe with a better form factor they can afford a more hefty heatsink to be able to allow that frame size. The current design of this camera looks like it's still designed for 1080 in mind.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

Hi Ugo Merlini,

I edit in Avid MC 3.1 and yes there is no XAVCS AMA. I use Edit Ready to convert XAVCS files, these days it's almost in every edit that I do as more people are using the A7S RX10 etc… I own both cameras and find the work flow easy, yes it's a bit long to get these into Avid but hey…. Avid has it's own way of doing things.

I also have migrated to Premier Pro and PP takes XAVCS files natively. This is wonderful and I wish Avid could do the same.

My main editor is Edius 7.5 . I also have Vegas 12 which will edit XAVC-S and XAVC but not XAVC-L from the X70. I think Premiere CC will also edit them all too. You will like Edius.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

As a wedding video guy, this camera looks like a very nice blend of features in a relatively compact form. Having the 3 dedicated rings, and all the buttons (minimal menu diving) is a huge plus IMO. It's one of the things that's kept me on the edge from getting the AX100/X70.

I'd like to see some dimensions/weight on the unit... but if it's <$2,000 it looks like a nice replacement for my aging NX5.

I love the 1" sensor look for shallow DOF.... if there was a way to use the FMU with it, that would be great! But, it doesn't look like it has the capability based on the images.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

There is a handy PDF document called:

Sony XAVC Workflow Guide

It presents the variations of XAVC for each Sony camera, and then presents a table with the specs for each variation of XAVC.

Looks just a tad shorter.

Here's the brochure with some specs: http://www.sony.co.uk/pro/support/at...11v1-h-pdf.pdf

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

The Australian Sony Pro site now lists the HXR-NX30 and NX70, NX5 (and some others) as discontinued and the HXR-NX100 is now there. No more BOSS in the pro cameras.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

FCPX has always been able to import XAVC-S, it's only XAVC-L that it couldn't deal with, especially clips from the Sony X70. For several months we've been using first Catalyst Browse, then recently EditReady to transcode to ProRes. However, the latest (as of this week) firmware for the X70 has fixed that - FCPX will now import and edit native XAVC-L.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

FYI: B&H page for this camera is now up:

Sony HXR-NX100 Full HD NXCAM Camcorder HXR-NX100 B&H Photo Video

Of note is the F-stop range. Identical to that of the DVX200 and the X70. I know some low-light ENG people won't like the loss of light, but keep in mind the price. Those with EX1s might just have to accept cameras from now on may not have that F0.9 stop loss throughout the zoom range.

Re: HXR-NX100: 1'' sensor NXCAM

The lens is clearly a three ring version of the lens on the X70/AX100/CX900. Sony are really milking this core platform. It looks to be a more useful version than the X70 but leaves off useful things like touch focus probable because it doesn't have a touch LCD and still has a crazy lens cap instead of the nice lever closure version on all the other NXCAM models !! Nice move back to L series batteries though. . That means common batteries with NX5, NX3/1 and NEX-EA50 the likely other cameras for events. Of course after 18 months they still haven't got all my FDR-AX1 working !!! Sony seem to be getting things about 85% at the moment
