Both cameras are based around the combination of an APS-C sized 14.2 megapixel Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor and a BIONZ image processor, and both accept interchangeable lenses courtesy of Sony's brand-new E-mount. The NEX cameras offer not only still image shooting capabilities, but also the ability to capture high definition movies at up to 720p resolution in the NEX-3, or 1080i in the NEX-5. The new lens mount brought an opportunity for a simultaneous ground-up rethink of the lens design, bringing some definite advantages for video shooting as compared to competing products."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1279215400.usr11334.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><object width="599" height="337" data="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=13344064&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="src" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=13344064&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1" /></object></p><p>Wow, what an interesting announcement from Sony, the first interchangeable lens HD Camcorder. As well as shooting 1080p video, it will take still photo's at 14.2 megapixels. It has a 3 inch display and a rather funky Quad Capsule Spatial Array Stereo microphone, which I must be honest doesn't mean much to me, but I am sure will have real videographers drooling when it's&nbsp;due out in September for approximately $2000.&nbsp; You can find more details at the overview on Imaging Resource.</p>
