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.

Sony HXR-NX70

 

- ease of use - very lightweight - crystal clear picture quality - wide range of recording options

- not great in low light situations - zoom is very minimal - microphone (both inbuilt and the boom that comes with it) are weak

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.
