The Sony EA50 was announced two months ago (LINK) and impressed us with its very interesting and ergonomic looking design, the zoom rocker functionality and a good price-point.
What we didn’t know was how it performed before we got a chance to see it and play with it (LINK)
Now Johnnie Behiri got a chance to test the Sony NEX-EA50 large sensor camera and shared these nice clips and some insightful thoughts with us.
In Johnnie Behiri’s own words:
We thank our sponsor B&H who
has made cinema5D’s news
coverage of IBC 2012 possible.
Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.comWe had a chance to have a quick playtime with the new Sony NEX-EA50 here at IBC. A very interesting camera at first sight, as it has a very nice and ergonomic form factor and a digital zoomrocker, ideal for the newsgathering kind of work, all built around a large sensor.
We felt the camera also had some downsides to it.
Wow, what’s that?
Sony just called me and sent me all the infos about their newest addition to the NEX range. They just launched the Sony NEX-EA50, a large sensor, interchangeable-lens camcorder that brings some pretty interesting new features and ergonomics into large sensor & HDSLR world: A real zoom lens with an electronic rocker and a handheld shoulder system built into the camera.
[UPDATE:] How much? The NEX-EA50 will be $3600 $4000 (LINK) and around 3500€. The zoom is incldued! Intriguing.
