Excellent Camera

 

I was very excited to get this camcorder. It came just in time for a shoot and I spent the evening learning all of its features and getting things setup for the event in the next few days.

Lightweight, Onboard Audio Mixer, Weatherproof

Instruction Manual Not Good, White Balance Wanders, Gain Control

Sony HXR-NX70

 

It is a great size for the sort of work I do; it is straightforward to use; the internal memory is a great addition (I used a Z7 before the NX70)

The mechanical zoom is poor. A few more features which can be accessed through buttons rather than the touch screen would be a help ; A second "record" button on the other side of the camera (or the rear) would be good

Lack of ND filters ; In full auto mode and bright conditions iris does not go lower than F4 and shutterspeed must regulate exposure ; No HW buttons for gain, shutter and WB

The wind screen is not sufficiently effective and needs improvement ; The lack of a good printed manual is very regrettable for a camera of this price and versatility. The CD is a poor and inadequate substitute (It didn't mention that the solid state...
