Sony is running a new trade-in promotion for videographers and film-makers looking to upgrade.

The scheme has two tiers: one for any handheld camcorder, with XLR inputs, and another for camcorders with a 2/3” or large-format sensor, or 50mbps recording, when trading in for an F5.

Discounts are offered on a sliding scale, on the HXR-NX70E, HXR-NX5E, PMW-150 and PMW-200, and start at £170 (€200) and run up to #430 (€500).

The discount for the large-sensor F5 is €2000 or £1720.

The trade-in offer runs until December 31st, through authorised Sony Professional dealers.
