Sony HXR-NX70U NXCAM Professional Camcorder

Sony continues to shift the bar with the introduction of its rain- and dust-proof HXR-NX70U NXCAM Compact Camcorder. This rugged little trouper is the perfect companion for those tough location shoots where weather and climate cause lesser cameras to buckle and fold. Meeting stringent dustproof and rainproof requirements, the NX70U’s sealed body keeps out all but the toughest of elements, making it ideal for documentary and news videographers traveling to far-flung, unpredictable locations.But beneath the NX70U’s weatherproofing is a first-class performer that hits all the professional sweet spots. Its back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor combines with an ultra wide 26.3-263mm Sony G lens and Optical SteadyShot to provide outstanding full HD 1080p images even in low light. The Dual Rec function, meanwhile, lets you shoot 12.3MP stills while recording video, all of which can be captured to the unit’s spacious 96GB embedded flash memory or your choice of Memory Stick or SD/SDHC media.And

  • You can be confident rainy or dusty shooting environments will not affect the reliable operation of the HXR-NX70 thanks to its IEC60529 IP54 rating. The camcorder’s sealed body design makes sure that harmful sand and large dust particles do not get inside
  • A waterproof performance rating of IPx4 means that the main camera body is protected against rain showers and water splashes. However, it should not be submerged underwater or sprayed with pressurized water from a tap or hose
  • Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images
  • In addition, the 26.3mm focal length offers a broader perspective than previous lenses for enhanced wide angle shooting so you can capture more of the scene when close in
  • Get the most out of your camcorder with enhanced manual controls. The assignable lens ring allows for manual adjustment of focus, iris and zoom settings so you have complete creative control

    This review is from: Sony HXR-NX70U NXCAM Professional Camcorder (Electronics)

    Overall, end product (film quality) is great. G series lens lives up to its rep. HOWEVER:
    HUGE HUGE HUGE Problem with this camera is the zoom. It’s beyond terrible. The see-saw zoom button that rocks back and forth is so bulky and unpredictably inaccurate it’s worthless. you have to depress the button half way (which is a good quarter inch) until it does anything and then it’s so sensitive that it zooms in out out super fast out of your control. Even worse, the zoom ring on the barrel of the lens is unusable. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE BEEN SHIPPED LIKE THIS. In my eyes, it’s broken right out of the box. The reason you can’t use the barrel zoom is because when you turn it ever so slowly for a creeping zoom, it steps in little tiny jerk movements. In other words, it zooms in like this: “zoom, pause, zoom, pause, zoom, pause,”etc. It renders your footage worthless. And I’m not talking super slow either. I’m talking at a medium speed it does this. So it’s either super fast zooms or no zoom. How could a conglomerate like Sony ship these with such a design flaw is unfathomable. I have read other reviews of this camera with the same gripe so it’s not just me. So there is really no usable zoom on this almost $3000 camera. Lastly, it’s only a 10x zoom which is nothing. Gimme a 20x at least like all the other cameras in this price range (It has a digital zoom but we all know you cannot even use that in a professional end product. It looks like utter garbage I don’t even know why it’s offered, it’s just “cropping” the frame, it’s not actually zooming). Anyway, all the pros to these cons can be found in any other cameras in this price range (IE 24-60i frame rates) so i wont mention them. Here are a few notable unique pros worth mentioning:

    Pros: it is supposedly water/dust proof which I’ll never use (or be confident enough to attempt ruining my new camcorder)
    The wide angle G series lens operates at low light very well. Night shot might prove to be useful one day, the user interface is laid out very intuitively. Reminds me of my Nikon D90 DSLR menu … kind of… and I am a big fan of the on board analog mixer which has a 10db and 20db pad for the condenser mic. In the end the half inch sensor in this beast gives me incredible imaging so I’ll keep it, but damn it Sony, you better come out with a software update to fix the zoom so i can change this review and give you 4 or 5 stars!!!! Until then, I would only recommend this camera to people who will not be zooming in or out of the subject they are filming. Which is no one.

    P.S. For almost $3000 you can give us the longer lasting FV100 battery. It’s like a $30 difference sheesh. how cheap are these guys?

    I’ve been a pro videographer for over 10 years and always look for video cameras that perform extremely well without having to pay 5-10K. For the money, this cam is extremely good. The claimed features and specs are real. The depth of color is outstanding. Plus, the low lux setting is much more than a small enhancement. There’s a definite improvment at venues with lower lighting. Very good cam. I would add 2 features: Controls for the zoom speed & streaming video out/firewire. We proudly use this at XoomworX.

    This review is from: Sony HXR-NX70U NXCAM Professional Camcorder (Electronics)

    We bought this camera for a high school to shoot events and such. It is a GREAT camera!!! WE LOVE IT!! The Menus are easy to access and get around. The option for internal storage or SD Card is GREAT!!! I shoot a football game on the internal storage for the team and halftime events on the SD Card. I agree with the other review the zoom control sucks. FORGET about a smooth slow zoom. I have stopped using the zoom controls and now ONLY use the ring to control zoom. Even this does not produce a smooth zoom and the zoom ring is backwards to me. BEST product we have bought in a long time!!!
