On the 23rd of March expect that the new Sony NXCAM Super 35mm Cine Compact camera with removable lens will officially be called the FS-100? You can also bet money that regional editions of the Sony NXCAM will be sold as the FS-100E, FS-100P, FS-100U etc but will come to be universally called the Sony FS-100 NXCAM camera. NB theses are tips we received and sources have a great track record so far.
Prices bandied about for the Sony FS-100 NXCAM S35mm camera have been $7,000 and $6,000 but we have had a few whispers that it could well be lower than $6k.
Keep watching for the March 23 NXCAM showing when all is revealed.


Sony FS-100 NXCAM S35mm E Mount
FS-100 features a single 23.6mm x 13.3mm F11 ISO800 Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor which is the same as the the PMW-F3 camera Sensor.
Interchangeable lenses attach to the camera via E-mount. Third party manufacturer lens mounts will be available for other type of camera lenses.
Records AVCHD Full HD.
The S35mm NXCAM sports a 3.5″ flip-out monitor sits on the top of the camera which makes the modular design look like a Hasselblad camera.
Expect plenty of 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 screw mounts on the cameras body.
There will be a mic extension removable top handle and right side hand grip also removable.

Keep an eye out for Sony announcements on the Sony FS-100 NXCAM.

This March 23 showing which will unveil the 35mm NXCAM, the compact NXCAM, and the 3-D NXCAM, will it be online or at some private press only Sony corporate meeting in either Japan, Europe or North America? I keep hearing about this March 23 unveil, but, when, where, and at what time?

It's a guarantee that all the info will be repeated throughout the different forums within seconds of the embargo being lifted. So March 23 visit this thread and your questions should be answered.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

I wonder with the tsunami and power plant problems, if Sony will delay the release of information.

I read that Sony in Japan was hit pretty hard and their having rolling blackout throughout the country, which is obviously delaying productions and other things like even shipping of products.
Many like Sony, Panasonic, San Disk etc. have already donated millions to relief efforts.

While business is business I think the focus and priorities have shifted right now in Japan.
And understandably so.

I don't think they will. Now delivery times maybe delayed but not the release of the information. There are quite a few companies that have all the info we need but can't talk about it till March 23. I know Abel Cine is one of them.

It looks like the EX3 and the VG10 got together to have an offspring.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

Hmm I dont know what to say about it, in some ways I like it in other ways I dont. I think the size and modular design could be good, it looks like its not much larger than an SLR. Also it will fit onto my shoulder rig nicely which is cool.

However I am concerned about the lack of ND filters, that could almost be a deal breaker,

The layout looks more interesting than the very traditional F3 handicam layout, I can see people getting brackets to reposition V/F.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

another negative spec for this new camera is that does not have a DUAL CARD SLOT but only one.

''We also get one card slot which once again is an unusual choice as most solid state camcorders give you two card slots. ''

I assume Sony thinks that 170 min recording time with 32Gbit of memory is enough for most situations.

Yes it is enough but I was hoping for a simultaneous recording on both SD for instant backup, cause SD cards are not reliable. I recently bought the NX5 and during my first shooting a media card error came very suddenly to the monitor and since then I dont trust the media . (of course there is the option of the 128unit for this camera and this is good )

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

There could be an accessory that allows more cards, since Sony seem to be describing this as a modular camera.
