Unique design for versatile shooting options
The unique design of the NEX-EA50K further adds to the camcorder’s versatility. When the shoulder pad is extended, the camcorder can be balanced on the shoulder giving added stability for longer shooting times. Alternatively, when the shoulder pad is returned to its original position, the camcorder becomes compact enough to use in various handheld styles, allowing users to capture a wide variety of shots.
Interchangeable E-mount lens System
The NEX-EA50K incorporates the Sony E-mount interchangeable lens system, which enables auto focus, auto exposure and stabilisation during shooting. With its short flange back distance, it is possible to attach both established A-mount lenses via the LA-EA2 lens mount adapter, and an unrivalled choice of other brands lenses using third-party adapters.
Manual Zoom Lens
The NEX-EA50K camcorder comes with 18-200 mm 11X manual zoom lens SEL18200 (F3.5-6.3) for the affordable range users as a starter model of E-mount Interchangeable lens system camcorder. It features auto focus, continuous variable iris and Optical Steady Shot FM image stabilization with Active Mode, making it ideal for shooting and moving images.
Part of the professional NXCAM camcorder range
The NEX-EA50K features a range of professional functions usually associated with NXCAM camcorders, such as 2-channel XLR audio, Linear PCM audio, time code, user bit and built-in GPS.
16.1 megapixel still image capture
The camcorder can capture 16.1 megapixel still pictures with JPEG format support only. In addition, the NEX-EA50K has a built-in mechanical shutter to eliminate shutter-induced blur during long exposures while capturing still pictures.
A variety of recording media options
Sony’s HXR-FMU128 flash memory unit can dock directly to the camcorder for recording an immediate backup. The camcorder is compatible with the new Mirroring Memory Stick (MS-PX64/32/16) which is the world’s first memory card featuring a “Mirroring” function. This enables the card to deliver high reliability and data security through a dual recording (mirroring) function.
