Sony | Video Journalist Backpack – turnkey solution in one bag

Sony | Micro Site NXCAM & AVCHD. I saw a tweet about this yesterday and I have to say Im impressed with Sony taking the initiative to offer an all-in-one VJ BACKPACK SOLUTION. The kit is built around the HXR-NX30  which shoots AVCHD – this is an issue for older NLEs like Media Composer Pre Version6. That said with a list price of around €5,000 all in,  its damn competitive and aimed, I would imagine, at the growing demand for multimedia content on newspaper and radio websites. It remians to be seen will TV stations adopt the HXR-NX30 in place of the PMW-200 or the EX3…Unlikely in my opinion – but maybe Sony will anticipate this and offer a PRO version of the bag with one of these cameras instead??

The kit includes:

Sony  HXR-NX30 camera

Sony UWP-V1 wireless microphone system

Sony Xperia Tablet

Tripod, LED Light, Backpack and accessories.

There is also version also available with a Sony VAIO Laptop with Sony Creative Software’s Vegas™ Pro  pre-installed

    Hi there! I am a market development manager for Sony and we initially developed this specific kit as a request by some of our university customers with communication programs. This kit can be found here: Also we just announced that Gray Television CBS affiliate in Tallahassee WCTV has bought the backpacks as well!

    At the request from some of our customers we are also creating a version of the kit for the PMW200 so stay tuned for more!
