Overview

This palm-sized camcorder with the addition of XAVC 4K (QFHD) 100Mbps recordings at 30p/25p/24p, plus MPEG HD422 and MPEG HD420, providing even more recording choices. It is possible to select an output from HDMI, SDI, and composite while recording QFHD, plus a salvage function for XAVC file is available. The camcorder also records XAVC HD, AVCHD and DV with advanced network functions such as QoS Streaming in Network Client Mode and Ustream direct streaming added via firmware version 3.0. It gives you the ultimate balance between picture quality, advanced functionality and compact size.

Amazing picture quality

Even in low light conditions, high sensitivity and fantastic resolution with 14.2 million effective pixels deliver striking detail and colours.

Lightweight XDCAM camcorder

It weighs less than 1.4kg, including the XLR handle unit, battery (NP-FV70), lens hood and large eye-cup. It offers professional interfaces such as 3G-SDI and HDMI output connectors plus an XLR x2 handle unit with zoom lever.

Wired LAN Connection

This feature allows the PXW- X70 to be connected to the Internet over a wired connection via separately available USB adapter cable “VMC-UAM2” and Network adaptor kit “CBK-NA1”, allowing files to be streamed or transferred by FTP.

Dual media slots

Two media slots can record in either Simul or Relay mode. The PXW-X70 is equipped with two memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2), Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, as well as SDXC and SDHC cards.

Lens ring

The lens ring enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming, depending on which mode is selected.

Clear Image Zoom

The 12x optical zoom can be doubled to 24x with Clear Image Zoom, maintaining full resolution using Super Resolution Technology. In addition, Digital Extender can double this range up to 48x zoom. Super Resolution Technology is a Sony original intelligent interpolation which analyses the input image and increases the resolution of the image.

High-resolution LCD

The PXW-X70 incorporates a 3.5-inch 1,555K dot LCD, offering high resolution and flexible composition options.

Slow & Quick Motion

Use smooth slow or quick motion with full HD quality without any extra processing. 2x slow motion can be easily achieved by setting the recording format to 25p and the frame rate to 50 fps. The frame rate can also be set to 1 fps for 50x quick motion.
