Great looking video, awful file format

 

I purchased this camcorder for shooting interviews due to the positive reviews I read. The auto controls were very glitchy. Once I imported the footage and tried to edit, it was a nightmare. Great video but no audio even though there was audio press...

An Outdoor Production Hit

 

I have been filming for approximately 6 years in the outdoor industry. In which, camera men/women have to pack in a lot of equipment on their backs each day that they head out to film which creates a constant struggle to be as small and light as...

Great bang for your buck

 

I bought this camera to use for making small video projects for clients. I was impressed with easy to use interface and incredible picture quality. I just wish it was a little better in low-light but it's not bad. I was also happy to learn that I can...

Great camera !!!

 

I am working with broadcast for a tv show and the x70 is a dream, so easy to work with. At this price it is hard to find anything with this quality. I do recommend this camera. Also ordering from B&H is always a smooth transaction

Price vs Performance = Great Buy !

 

At this price point there is nothing which comes close. Video is superb. I have the 4K option but don't use it that much. 1080P XAVC has made several cablecast shows. In my opinion, this is an interview/B-Roll cam not an action cam. Don't buy a Prius...

A year on, what I've learned

 

I reviewed this camera about 9 months ago.I will never again believe Sony about something they say is "coming soon." After nearly one year of owning this camera, it is only now capable of direct ingest in Final Cut Pro X. We were promised firmware in...
