Overview

4K Compact NXCAM Camcorder

For corporate video, event video, education, faith and government video, there’s never been anything like Sony’s HXR-NX80. This sleek chassis represents the most power we’ve ever built into a palm-sized NXCAM® camera. With advances like 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, Instant HDR, a giant 1” (1.0-type) image sensor and Fast Hybrid Auto Focus, this is the perfect tool for taking your productions to the next level.

Key Features:

  • Large 1” (1.0-type) stacked Exmor RS® sensor and BIONZ X™ processor
  • Fast Hybrid AF with 273 points and wide AF coverage
  • XAVC-S, (4K/HD) and AVCHD recording with Dual Media Slots
  • Instant HDR Workflow with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG)
  • Simple Live Solution when combined with MCX-500 Live Producer and RM30BP Remote
  • Super Slow/ S&Q motion 
  • Optional Wireless Timecode Link (CBKZWTCL) and MPEG (CBKZSLMP) Licenses
  • 2.4GHz Wi-Fi Streaming (Ustream)
  • OLED viewfinder
  • Lightweight, compact design for high mobility
  • Dual XLR inputs

Fast Hybrid Auto Focus with advanced features

Fast or unpredictable subject motion can trip up the Contrast Detection auto focus of conventional camcorders. The HXR-NX80 stays ahead of the action using Fast Hybrid Auto Focus (AF). This system combines both Contrast Detection and Phase. 

Some 273 reference points cover 84% of the sensor area to lock onto moving subjects from sports and dance to natural history and breaking news. Selecting the focus area is as simple as touching the camera’s LCD monitor screen. Additional features include 4K face detection, object tracking and adjustments for AF Tracking Depth. They all work together seamlessly to capture fast-moving subjects with consistent sharpness. 

4x Area settings are provided for maximum flexibility: Wide, Zone, Center and Flexible Spot.

Auto Focus Subject Tracking facilitates capturing objects moving in a narrow or wide space. Switching sensitivity sets the response for shifting focus between subjects and can be set to lock onto tracking a single subject
 

Instant HDR workflow w/ HLG

With the ability to reproduce images from deep shadows to piercing highlights, 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) televisions are sweeping the market and demand for HDR production is booming. While broadcasters recognize the benefits of HDR, they still need to deliver content quickly and effectively. The HXR-NX80 meets this demand with Sony’s Instant HDR workflow. Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording captures HDR, yet plays back beautifully on both HDR and conventional monitors and televisions. There’s no need to devote extra time to post-production work and color grading. For added versatility, the camera also provides S-Log3 encoding.

Super Slow/ S&Q Motion

High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow motion ballet. The HXR-NX80 delivers continuous 1-120 frames per second (fps) Slow & Quick Motion in Full HD. For 24p projects, the result is gorgeous 5x slow motion. There's no sacrifice in bit depth and no "windowing" of the sensor. Compared to normal frame rates, there's no crop factor, no loss in angle of view. You also get beautiful time lapse sequences down to 1 fps. And burst mode recording offers even higher frame rates – 240 fps, 480 fps and 960 fps – at specific resolutions.

The HXR-NX80 offers three trigger modes and recording can be stopped anytime START TRIGGER is selected.

During Super Slow Motion shooting, the readout from the image sensor is temporarily stored in the internal high speed cache memory.  Then the data is processed into recording format and is written to the MS/SD memory.

2.4 GHz Wi-Fi®& Streaming Options

The HXR-NX80 comes with 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi as standard. Simply turn on and log onto your preferred network to enjoy advanced wireless production. Ustream® Direct Streaming enables you to share scenes as they happen with high quality picture and sound - No switcher required. Smartphone or tablet remote control. You can operate the camera – and view the image – from a smartphone or tablet using Sony’s free Content Browser Mobile™ app (requires iOS 9.0 - 10.3 or Android 4.4 - 7.1 operating system). You can even connect compatible devices with one-touch NFC authentication.

Simple Live Solution when combined with MCX-500 Live Producer and RM-30BP Remote

The HXR-NX80 works seamlessly with the MCX-500 and RM-30BP remote to form a cost-effective Live Production System. A Tally indicator will automatically appear on each camera’s LCD panel and viewfinder. A red icon indicates when the shot is live (PGM) while Green indicates preview mode (NEXT). The MCX-500 supports mixing between eight video sources, four stereo embedded audio channels plus two XLR Inputs, and a dedicated Title Input. . There are both internal recording and live streaming via Ustream, Facebook Live and YouTube Live. (Facebook Live and YouTube Live require V2.0 firmware.)

Optional Wireless Timecode Link (CBKZ-WTCL) 

The Optional CBKZ-WTCL allows Wireless Timecode Link synchronization using the free Content Browser Mobile™ 3.0 app and devices running iOS® (9.0 - 10.3) or Android® (4.4 - 7.1) operating systems. Sync to your choice of camcorder or to a time that you determine.
 

High-resolution OLED viewfinder

For precise manual focus, Sony’s 0.39-type OLED viewfinder combines high brightness and contrast with the resolution of 2359K dots. The highly responsive viewfinder also eliminates color breaking. For added flexibility in composing shots, Sony supplements the viewfinder with a 3.5-type 1550K dot touchscreen LCD monitor
 

Dual XLR inputs

To extend recording time and flexibility, the camera provides two slots for SDXC™ and SDHC™ cards. Slot 1 is also compatible with Memory Stick PRO Duo™ (Mark 2) / PRO-HG Duo™ cards. To take advantage, Relay mode automatically switches recording to the second memory card when the first is full. Simul mode enables simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The camera’s two Start/Stop buttons on the handle grip and camcorder body can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simul mode.
