Clip transfer from X70 to a smartphone

Hi everyone,

Considering the X70 as a news cam replacing/adding to my heavy HPX-502 ENG cam kit.

Just curious to see if anyone is successfully using the feature where you can transfer video clips to a smartphone using the WiFi connection in the X70.

Thanks in advance,

DC

I don't think that feature's there yet. The details page mentions it as part of the firmware upgrade expected March-ish:

Right now you can monitor (low-res viewfinder on the phone), and control recording and zoom.

Ahh, ok thank you.

I wonder if the transfers will be full-res versions or proxy versions.

This is probably dependent on the codec. I am doubtful that most phones will have the horsepower to decode XAVC in realtime, but probably will be fine with AVCHD.

I would be happy with AVCHD - it would be for ENG purposes only.

Cheers,

David

I am not disputing your general statement, but my Samsung Galaxy S5 plays smoothly on its Full HD OLED screen XAVC S 100Mbps 4K videos (that I make with Sony Vegas Pro 13) or XAVC S 60Mbps videos straight from my AX100.

Video transfers will be in MP4 format, according to the Sony web site:

"The PXW-X70 can be remotely controlled from a smartphone or tablet computer (iOS 4.3 through 7.0 or Android 2.3 through 4.3) via a Wi-Fi connection, and recorded video files can be transferred from camcorder to smartphone in MP4 format.* In addition to file transfer, streaming via 4G/LTE is planned to be available by firmware upgrade in the future. One-touch authentication is also possible with smartphones that offer NFC connectivity. The required Content Browser Mobile mobile smartphone application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store."

...now I wonder if those MP4 files that can be transferred to a smartphone are hi-quality and "usable for broadcast" video clips or will they be low-quality proxy clips.
