Sony NX5 - features and workflow

We spent three days last week at Broadcast Video Expo 2010. While we were there we had a chance to talk to Rob France, Sony UK NXCAM product manager, about the practical aspects of the HXR-NX5, such as workflow, how it operates with the main non-linear editing systems, and where the NXCAM range will go next.

Sony NX5 - features and workflow.

One of its interesting features is its HD-SDI output. If you record the image from that it will be in the 4:2:2 colour space, which is better for those doing green screen work. The camera normally records 4:2:0 to flash memory or its add-on solid-state drive.

For those of you who've seen our NXCAM preview video (vimeo.com/7882773), this compliments that video, with practical tips for working with AVCHD and a discussion of the benefits of solid state.
