Sony is developing a new type of AVCHD high definition camcorder, set for the market this Fall, which features key technologies powering the newly announced interchangeable lens digital camera, NEX-5 and NEX-3. The new camcorder will be equipped with the same “Exmor” APS HD CMOS sensor to be used in NEX series. In addition, the camcorder will be compatible with “E Mount” interchangeable lenses developed for NEX, and also the wealth of “A Mount” interchangeable lenses from the existing “α” DSLR camera lineup via a mount adapter. By combining these features, Sony aims to market a camcorder capable of generating a variety of creative expressions in HD quality.
