Sony is developing a new type of AVCHD high definition camcorder with an interchangeable lens similar to DSLR cameras. Still at prototype stage, the camcorder will be equipped with the same Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor used in the new NEX-5 and NEX-3 cameras and will be able to share E-mount interchangeable lenses.

This new generation of camcorders will, naturally, deliver full HD quality and Sony’s existing A-mount interchangeable lenses will be made compatible via a mount adapter.
