• 4 Times the color clarity and detail
• In post you can zoom up to 200% and maintain HD quality
• You can shoot your video wide and then reframe it in post
• The "warp stabilizer" in post has 4x the amount of information to work with, resulting in less shaky footage.

For all-day hunts, you can through in a couple cards into the dual SD card slots and a couple of extended batteries and be able to film all day long.

The HXR-NX80's autofocus accurately allows for fast focusing and tracking, useful for solo hunters. The HXR-NX80's 3.5" touchscreen is used to quickly switch focus among subjects by simply touching the LCD screen until a focus box appears. Plugging in a Varizoom remote (not included) will allow you to control start/stop record and zoom in/out cutting down your movement to allow you to capture that hunt of a lifetime.

With the built-in image stabilization your friends will never know how much you were shaking when you pulled the trigger.

The HXR-NX80's audio features allows you to use both a shotgun microphone and wireless microphone at the same time to capture professional audio.

When you are back at camp show off your hunt in all its 4K glory.

Revolutionary imaging performance with Exmor RS
To deliver imaging performance previously impossible for a compact camcorder. A large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. This sensor integrates up to 273 phase-detection AF points that densely cover approx. 84% of the image area, for precise tracking of subjects throughout the shooting frame.

The sensor also gives you 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*.

Amazingly fast precision auto focus
The HXR-NX80 incorporates an advanced Fast Hybrid AF system, alongside face detection and lock-on auto focus technology, making it easy to focus and track a subject while filming.

As the expanding need for HDR content continues, internet video platforms and professionals producing corporate or event content are paying more attention to the added value of HDR. They need to deliver content quickly, without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content. To meet this demand, the HXR-NX80 offers Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording, in addition to S-Log3, for easy file-based workflows, while achieving the image quality of HDR. This simple workflow enables the shooting, editing and viewing of HDR content in HLG, without devoting a lot of time to post-production work and additional colour grading.

Stunning slow motion in Full HD
High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow motion ballet. The HXR-NX80 delivers up to 120 frames* per second (fps) in Full HD, giving you a maximum of five-times slow motion expression. There’s no sacrifice in bit depth and no ‘windowing’ of the sensor. So there’s no crop factor, no loss in angle of view. Higher frame rates of 240, 480 and 960fps are also possible at specific resolutions.

The LCD gives you further flexible composition options.

Dual XLR inputs
The NX80 has two XLR connecters – so even if you remove the handle with its standard, easy-access XLR connector then a second on the body is still available, making it ideal for applications such as shooting in a confined space, such as a car interior, or when mounting on a gimbal.

Remote operation
The HXR-NX80 has a featured remote interface (2.5 mm stereo mini-mini jack) wired interface. Using a wired remote controller such as the RM-1BP or RM-30BP the focus, zoom, rec start/stop and rec review can be controlled remotely. The camcorder can connect to the optional RM-30BP and MCX-500 Multi Camera Live Producer to form a simple live solution.

Dual media slots
To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the HXR-NX80 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards as well as Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) / PRO-HG Duo*.

Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full; Simul mode allows simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The HXR-NX80’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.
*Memory Card Slot 1 only.

Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe
