The Sony HXR-NX200 Video Camera is an affordable, professional compact camcorder with a big 1.0-type sensor and new colour reproduction for superb 4K or Full-HD image quality. It offers all the professional features you need with refined manual controls including three independent manual lens rings, smart fully auto options and more.
The Sony NX200 is capable of delivering stunning 4K images in 100Mbps XAVC S at 25p, or 1080p at 50p onto SD cards. Beautiful colour, achieved by a newly refined colour science ensures natural skin colours and rich mid-range colours for vivid, yet true-to-life imagery regardless of exposure setting. NX200’s newly developed gamma curve provides a vibrant look ready to share as soon as you export - perfect for capturing live events such as seminars, weddings and houses of worship.
This camera is a cost-effective choice offering all the professional features in a robust yet compact chassis. NX200's lens has three rings to control focus, aperture and zoom, all of which can also be controlled automatically. The ergonomically designed camera body features a manual dial and buttons on the side of the body to allow swift and easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN and shutter speed. Sony's Clear Image zoom extends the zoom range to 18x in 4k and 24x in 1080p. It features a 1.56M dots LCD and viewfinder, built-in ND filters (2-6 stops), microphone and two phantom-powered XLR-ports and uses Sony's NP-F style batteries.

There’s no need to choose between professional features and superb 4K imaging at an entry-level price-point. Advanced manual controls, including three independent manual lens rings, built-in 4-step ND filters and class-leading 4K and Full-HD performance make NX200 a choice you can rely upon for live events, corporate, education and wedding videography.
The HXR-NX200 offers superb all-round performance whatever your workflow.
Future-proof XAVC S Recording
For 4K or Full-HD production, XAVC S offers stunning picture quality, but also workflow flexibility and storage efficiency. Compared to AVCHD, XAVC S captures more details and less noise thanks to the higher bitrate, while also being supported by all the major non-linear editors.
AVCHD/DV HD Recording for Existing Workflows
NX200 also offers the option to record HD in AVCHD or DV, making it easy to integrate your content into existing workflows. NX200 offers PAL-only recording frame rates of 25p 4K:QFHD 3840×2160 50p, 50i, 25p Full HD and 50i SD.
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the NX200 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards.
A built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel includes positions for clear, 1/4 (2 stops), 1/16 (4 stops), and 1/64 (6 stops). This makes it easier to get all the advantages of shallow depth of field even in exterior day shoots, with no need to worry about bringing along and fitting a separate filter.
The NX200 has a 0.24-type Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) and an easily adjustable, flip-out 3.5-type LCD. Both offer 1550K dots high resolution for precise monitoring and low latency however you choose to shoot.
The HXR-NX200 is designed to work seamlessly with the optional Sony’s MCX-500 Multi-Camera Live Producer, a robust and cost-effective switcher that makes it easy for one person to run a multi-camera live event shoot. When used with the MCX-500 and Remote Commander RM-30BP, a tally indicator will automatically appear on each HXR-NX200’s LCD panel and viewfinder – a red icon indicates when the shot is live (PGM) while green indicates preview mode (PVW)
The HXR-NX200 takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 with SMAD-P3/P3D adapters.
There’s no need to worry about adapters as the NX200 provides a wide variety of built-in connectivity options including HDMI, Multi/Micro USB, professional audio XLR terminals, REMOTE and Composite (BNC).
The HXR-NX200’s single 20 megapixels 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor is approximately the same size as a 16mm film frame and seven times larger than three 1/4.7 type sensors combined. The key benefit of this large size is low noise and less blur because more light reaches the sensor, offering clear and steady pictures even in a dark scene with minimum illumination 1.7 lux in Low Lux mode. The large sensor size also enables beautiful background defocussing (bokeh) to enable you to focus on what you want to show and defocus the rest of the image.
Picture Profiles with New Gamma Curve
The default look for NX200 uses an all-new gamma curve specifically developed to accurately realize brilliant and deep colours, with true-to-life skin tones. Tuned in consultation with leading videographers, it avoids oversaturation of brightly lit subjects and provides a more natural look. The NX200 has six Picture Profile settings to choose from, each of which can be individually customised to your requirements.
A fixed 29mm wide-angle lens with 12x optical zoom makes it easy to capture even the most expansive landscape scenes while also offering superb clarity and sharpness – maximising the performance of the NX200’s large 1.0 type sensor.
The G Lens is Sony’s own camera lens family, designed and manufactured to the high standards of optical performance.
24x Clear Image Zoom (FHD)
In addition, your ability to get close to the most distant scenes is aided by Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom feature. Once you’ve zoomed in at maximum 12x optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution Technology can enlarge the image by an additional 150% in 4K and 200% in HD while still preserving image quality. In addition, zoom performance can be doubled at any point with a digital extender by up to 24x.
