Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder, Dual CMOS Sensor, 10x 3D Optical Zoom, 3.5 inch LCD, 96GB Capacity

The Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder is literally two camcorders in one, facilitating the capture of high-definition stereoscopic 3D video at full 1920 x 1080 resolution. The camera borrows several elements from Sony’s NXCAM line, such as the HD native Exmor R CMOS sensor (1/4″, with ClearVid pixel array), the 12x Sony “G” lens (10x in 3D mode) and solid-state recording of AVCHD in many formats. (For the HXR-NX3D1, the imaging elements are, of course, doubled.) But as a single-body handheld 3D camcorder, the professional NX3D1 brings several innovations to the table for this emerging class of camcorders.First and foremost is a 3.5″ lenticular LCD display, which allows you to monitor the stereo effect while you’re shooting – without the need for any glasses. The screen offers several other options, as well: You can view just the left image, just the right image, or a composite mix of both, “flattened” so you can eyeball the disparity between the left and right video channels. T

  • 3.5″ LCD Shows 2D or Glasses-Free 3D: The HXR-NX3D1U’s glasses-free 3D LCD lets you preview high-quality 3D images while shooting.
  • Switching between 2D and 3D display is also possible
  • Multi-Format Recording: Compatible with a wide range of formats, the HXR-NX3D1U enables 1920 x 1080 (60i/50i/24p) 3D recording
  • 1920 x 1080 (60p/60i/50p/50i/25p/24p) 2D recording
  • Easy Editing & NLE Compatibility: Sony’s Vegas Pro 10.0d software offers native import support for MVC video files
  • Output from the HXR-NX3D1U’s HDMI jack to a 3D TV is selectable between Frame Packing with Full HD output of alternate left and right images
  • Side-by-Side with output of horizontally compressed left and right images packed into a single frame

    This review is from: Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder, Dual CMOS Sensor, 10x 3D Optical Zoom, 3.5 inch LCD, 96GB Capacity (Electronics)

    I’ve do a bit of aerial photography, and recently I decided to take the plunge and try it in 3D. Although I tend to use Canon video gear, it looks like Sony has made a significant investment in 3D. Sony seems to have the greatest range of products on the market so far, and the NX3D1 seemed like the right product for my needs.

    There’s a lot to like about this camera, from the overall construction and “feel” to the quality of the videos you can produce. Although I haven’t used Sony camcorders in a long time, everything felt comfortable to me, from the placement of the controls to the overall balance. In my aerial photography ventures, the camera rides attached to a small radio-controlled helicopter in a custom housing that gives me remote monitoring, as well as pan, tilt and zoom capabilities. Adapting the camera and remote to my (admittedly unusual) needs has been pretty simple, so I give Sony high marks in this regard. Sony customer service went above and beyond to get me wiring diagrams and information about the remote control protocol so that I could adapt the NX3D1 to my needs – very impressed with their service.

    Originally, I was somewhat torn between this unit and its big brother, the PMW-TD300. While much more expensive, the TD300 gives you up to 35Mb/s bitrates – substantially more than the 28 Mb/s on the NX3D1. My Canon 2D video equipment produces 50Mb/s, and I was worried that the NX3D1 would reveal compression artifacts or have other quality issues related to the lower bitrate. Unfortunately, the TD300 is heavier than my equipment can lift, so in the end, the NX3D1 was my only choice. In the end, I suppose for 2D video, I’ll keep using my Canon – but the stunning 3D videos you get from the NX3D1 make it easy to overlook issues like bitrates.

    When used in still image or 2D mode, image quality is good, but not terrific. Exposure is spot-on, the lenses are sharp and contrasty, and the autofocus system keeps up with whatever you point the camera at. Still, the relatively small sensors used in camcorders don’t have the dynamic range, low-light performance or noise qualities of larger cameras (say, your DSLR in movie capture mode). Of course, you probably buy this sort of camera for 3D, and so 2D or still picture performance is no doubt of secondary importance.

    Sony does an excellent job with image stabilization on the NX3D1. Even in my aerial photography setup (which tortures most image stabilization solutions!), videos are generally smooth and fluid – probably the best I’ve seen on any brand of camcorder. Sound quality is likewise quite good, whether you use the built-in microphone or the XLR inputs. The 96GB storage capacity is plenty for me, and Sony makes it fairly painless to offload to an external drive or simply carry lots of SD memory cards. Battery life is reasonable – I get about 2-3 hours depending on whether I have the microphone attached or not, and there’s a larger capacity battery if run-time is important to you.

    While I’m new to 3D, I didn’t find it especially difficult to adjust and configure the 3D settings to get topnotch video. The 3.5″ LCD is clear and bright, even in daylight, and the “no-glasses” 3D mode gives you a good idea of what the final product will look like. The one challenge I had with 3D was in editing and post processing. My 2D equipment and Adobe-based software just doesn’t cut it for 3D, and to be honest, I still don’t feel as though I have a great solution here. Of course, this isn’t Sony’s fault – I need to upgrade to 3D capable monitors, software, etc.

    Overall, I like the Sony NX3D1 a lot and I’m glad I gave it a try. Although I feel like 3D is a big step and there are still some missing pieces, the Sony NX3D1 is a big part of the equation, and I don’t think you’d regret going with one.

    This review is from: Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder, Dual CMOS Sensor, 10x 3D Optical Zoom, 3.5 inch LCD, 96GB Capacity (Electronics)

    I’ve been shooting with the Sony 3D NX Cam since 8-2011. I took 2 of them to Africa to film a safari. The camera is lightweight with great image quality. The touch screen view finder allows the user to control all aspects of the image settings. You can switch from 2D to 3D shooting modes with the flick of a switch and it has great low light capabilities. So far I’ve shot stunning footage of Nature, wildlife, people, buildings etc: I promise you will fall in love with this camera too. Welcome to the new age of 3D cinematography.

    Try and Search for ” HXR-NX3D1U ” online.

    Search for a PDF Manual and let me know if you can find one – good luck.

    I own one of this and I have searched everywhere, by the way – Sony’s online support is terrible.
