Pro Video Camera


I use this camera mainly in studio but will have a need to travel on location for shoots during the year. So far, I like the extra "bells and whistles" it comes with. The product experts at B&H are an excellent source for my questions. Setting up mics...

Good HD Camera


For the short time that I have had the camera, I have to say that I am very happy with it. I am no pro videographer, but the camera is relatively easy to use, had great features, and records great video.

Bang for the Buck


First of all, let me say this is an excellent choice for those in need of a quick run-and-gun HD camera solution with a wide ranging (and long!) zoom lens that works well in many situations. I can see it being handy on many types of shoots, and it...

Consumer review by: Blake C. (

It's a workhorse.


Coming from a DSLR background (Canon 60D) I was a little worried how a small sensor, fixed-lens camcorder would compare. I was very worried my work would go from cinematic to C-SPAN and back me in to a corner creatively. However, I needed something to...

About those 10 and 11 minute long video clips


I use this camera professionally with 2 sony nx5u cameras and they mix well. The nx3 does well in low light, not a lot of noise in the darker colors in low light or when gained up a little (9db).Video is crisp, clear, and has that sony color look, very...
