Overview

The Sony PXW-X70 Professional XDCAM Compact Camcorder is a lightweight gadget designed specifically for outdoor film schedules. It comes with a Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* lens that offers a maximum zoom of 12×, which can be doubled with Clear Image Zoom. The camera sports an Exmor R CMOS sensor that ensures high color fidelity in full HD videos. It can record videos in slow motion at a rate of 50 fps and in fast motion at 1 fps. With the XAVC Long-GOP codec, the camera records HD videos with a 10-bit color sampling at 50 Mbps. The built-in ND filters can be selected as may be needed. You may view the composition with the help of the 0.39-inch OLED viewfinder or 3.5-inch LCD screen. The camera has an integrated omni-directional microphone as well as XLR-type 3-pin inputs for external microphones. You may use the built-in WiFi to view your videos live from your smartphone via the Content Browser Mobile app.

Optics and Focus

The PXW-X70 camcorder from Sony features a Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* lens that offers a focal length that is equivalent to 29mm–348mm. You may adjust the aperture range of f/2.8–4.5 manually with the provided aperture ring. The camera has a minimum autofocus range of 10mm on a wide lens and 1000mm on a tele-macro lens. With the image stabilizer, camera shakes that are visible on the higher zoom setting are brought down to ensure a smooth handheld shooting experience. At the front of the lens is a three-level ND filter.

Sensor and Screen

This video camera from Sony comes with the Exmor R CMOS Sensor that produces high-resolution images with a wide color gamut. It provides a bright image quality and a pleasant bokeh with a shallow depth of field when compared to 1/3- or 1/4.7-inch image sensors. The camcorder’s 3.5-inch LCD offers 1.56M-dot resolution for live viewing and video playback. Alternatively, the 0.39-inch OLED viewfinder lets you view and analyze the scene at hand in the conventional way, besides helping prevent color breaking and ensuring accuracy at the time of manual focusing.

Image and Video

The Sony PXW-X70 Professional XDCAM camcorder lets you shoot full HD videos at close to 60p in the XAVC long format. You also have the option of recording proxy XAVC videos that can be easily transferred over a low-bandwidth network. With these proxy files, you can go about your post-production editing like a breeze. The camera is equipped with an advanced Bionz X image-processing engine that creates life-like images as well as improves camera performance. With the NightShot mode, you may use the camera to shoot in complete darkness.

Other Features

The Sony PXW-X70 Professional XDCAM Compact Camcorder has built-in WiFi with NFC, which can be used to control the camcorder remotely with your smartphone. You may stream live with the camera by using the Ustream and QoS features. The camera can be connected to the internet via a LAN cable for transferring photos through an FTP server. With the dual media slots, you may record videos in either the Simul or Relay mode. In the Simul mode, the camera can record videos on both cards at the same time, while in the Relay mode, it switches the storage location to the second card after the first one is full. This Sony camcorder allows creation of up to 99 custom profiles.
