Wait, X70 4:4:2 is only 1080, right ...not 4k?

I only shoot 1080P 10bit with my cam but I am thinking about buying the 4k upgrade and shooting in 4k. Is the X70 4k in 10 bit? Seems like I remember it wasn't, but now I am starting to doubt myself.

Can the X70 shoot broadcast-acceptable 4k, or just stick to 1080?

Thanks

That'a correct. 4K will be 4:2:0 in 8-bit at a ridiculous 60Mbps. Until the fix that (they said 1st quarter this year, but...well, it's Sony) and give you a 100Mbps option, I would wait.
