Built for hybrid videographers, the latest NXCAM camcorder also offers users the flexibility to shoot in 4K and cut out in HD during post-production.
The newly launched HXR-NX200 is said to deliver beautiful images with the newly developed refined colour science. This advancement allows the camcorder to express more vivid, deep, a rich variation of colours and natural skin tones regardless of the exposure condition.
The HXR-NX200 is equipped with a 29mm wide- three angle G Lens alongside independent manual lens rings, enabling manual control of focus, zoom and iris, for quick and precise adjustment.

The HXR-NX200 NXCAM camcorder enables users to stream live events in HD when paired with the MCX-500 multi-camera live producer and the RM-30BP remote commander. Extending the recording format of Sony’s NXCAM family, the HXR-NX200 is capable of recording 4K XAVC S 100Mbps for good picture quality with less noise due to a higher bitrate. Further, the latest camcorder features dual media slots, realising extended recording time and workflow flexibility through a relay and simultaneous back-up. The camcorder costs Rs 1,60,000.
