Having introduced the Nex-3 and Nex-5 compact cameras as concept models back in February then announcing them today, Sony is taking the same approach with a new interchangeable-lens camcorder.

So, today we get the mock-up, and an indication that the real thing will arrive some time in the autumn.

Sony interchangeable-lens camcorder

The connection with the Alpha Nex series goes deeper still: the new AVCHD camcorder will use the same DSLR-quality APS image sensor as the Nex line does, and it will take their lenses to - plus regular Alpha DSLR lenses with a suitable adaptor.

"By combining these features," the company said, "Sony aims to market a camcorder capable of generating a variety of creative expressions in full HD quality."
