After dropping some big news yesterday about a 4K cinema camera from Sony, Jon Fauer is again spilling great info on the upcoming Sony NXCAM 35. Â A lot of people are eagerly anticipating the NXCAM as an alternative to the Panasonic AF100. Â The NXCAM is reported to have the same Super 35mm CMOS chip as the PMW-F3K but use E mount lenses instead of PL mount. Â Since E mount has such a narrow flange, most any lens can be adapted to work with the NXCAM.
Some of the big news that was dropped today was price and availability. Â The NXCAM will be priced under $7,000 which makes it more than the AF100 but still able to compete. Â Availability is somewhere between April and June.
No pictures were allowed, but Jon gives a good description of the body and other featuresÂ here.
