Versatile and affordable large Format Sensor NXCAM camcorder

The NEX-EA50M is a professional NXCAM camcorder with a large format Exmor™ APS-C HD CMOS sensor and interchangeable E-mount lens system providing exceptional creative freedom when shooting both Full HD movies and high-quality still photos. It is supplied with the SELP18105G 18-105mm F4 Constant Aperture Servo Zoom G lens. The lens features constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, quiet and continuous variable focus/zoom/iris operation. The length of the lens remains constant for maximum handling consistency, combined with Optical Steady Shot™ image stabilisation, making it ideal for shooting moving images. Variable zooming speed is electronically controlled by zoom rocker levers located on the camcorder’s handgrip, top handle, a zoom rocker on the lens itself and by LANC compatible remote controllers. An innovative design with an extendible shoulder-pad allows you to switch between handheld and shoulder-mount operation as required, with no need for additional accessories.
