Sony has told World+Dog that its labs are working on an entry-level pro camcorder with interchangeable lenses.

A-Mount lenses - the type used by Sony's Alpha digital SLR cameras - can be used too, albeit mediated by an A-to-E adaptor.

Sony said the NXCAM will record in the AVCHD and MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 formats at up to 1080p.
