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 just because the NX70U is small doesn’t mean it stints on professional features and controls. An assignable lens ring gives you manual control over focus, zoom, or iris, while the detachable handle with dual XLR inputs-and an on-camera shotgun mic-provides the option of recording 2-channel audio using high-end external microphones. Helping you nail focus and exposure are the zebra and peaking indicators, which can be viewed through either the large viewfinder or high-resolution

This Camcorder has its UPS and DOWNS 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…

Great ENG Camcorder 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…

Excellent for Event Videography 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…
