Multi-format recording

The NX5R is designed to provide the absolute best performance for FullHD productions, recording in AVCHD and DV to support proven legacyworkflows, as well as the newer, more advanced XAVC S at 50Mbps.

XAVC S offers stunning picture quality, but also workflow flexibilityand storage efficiency. In XAVC S, the NX5R uses the MP4 file format,sampling at 50Mbps. Compared to AVCHD, XAVC S 50Mbps captures moredetails and less noise thanks to the higher bitrate.

Depending on your region, separate models are available offeringrecording frame rates of 50p Full HD and 50i SD (PAL model), or 60p FullHD and 60i SD (NTSC model).
