Sony Corporation announced today that it is developing a new type of AVCHD high definition camcorder which features key technologies powering the newly announced interchangeable lens digital camera, "NEX-5" and "NEX-3" and plans to commercialize the new HD camcorder in fall 2010.
The new camcorder will be equipped with the same "Exmor" APS HD CMOS sensor to be used in "NEX-5" and "NEX-3." In addition, the camcorder will be compatible with "E-mount" interchangeable lenses developed for "NEX-5" and "NEX-3", and also the wealth of "A-mount" interchangeable lenses from the existing "α" DSLR camera lineup via a mount adaptor.
By combining these features, Sony aims to market a camcorder capable of generating a variety of creative expressions in full HD quality.
