Great run-and-gun

  • Excerpt: I really like the Sony a lot. I keep it on manual and it does the dirty work and I fire away. With three sensors it handles low light well. And has built in ND filters. the footage is kinda flat out of the box but responds well to post grading in FCP. I think they planned it that way.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

  • Excerpt: The NX3 is a move up from my Canon Vixia HV30 and it's better all around. The Sony is easy to use. The controls are intuitive and well laid out. The picture quality leaves my previous camera far behind. I was happy to see that Sony now includes a battery and charger with the NX3/1.

  • Summary: I purchased my NX3 just a few months ago, Going from tape to this camera has changed my whole video business. The quality of the HD and working in low light has made my productions so much better. The camera is light weight and great for run and gun type of shoots.

Fantastic

  • Summary: I'm very pleased with this purchase. I've been filming using DSLR's and Canon Telephotos lenses and this is the best comparable alternative I've found in a camcorder. The focal range is great and the extra 40x is amazing. You will be stunned at the zoom on this guy.
