Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof” - Delivery update

Hi all,

I have the camera on pre-order from proav.co.uk, and they have now said, that Sony has promised delivery to them on June 8, whereafter they will send it out.

Just to let you all know.

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

Would anyone care to speculate on the difference in low light performance between the Sony and the Canon XF100/XA10?

Peter, that's accurate with my statement in my previous post (regarding delivery). My friend is a Sony rep who stated "early June delivery" for US shipments too!

Adam, I too am curious on this issue. So far, I can only go on what others have reported (brief review and testing at NAB). All of these cams seem to be good low light producers. I'll test the Sony NX70U as soon as it's delivered! Will report to the forum ASAP!

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

You can do better than speculate. Look at the detailed reviews on camcorderinfo of both the Canon HFG10 (same sensor as the Canon XA10/XF100) and the Sony CX700 (which is believed to be the same sensor as the NX70). Likewise with the slashcam comparative review site (use Google translate if necessary).

I won't link either site or the reviews directly as that's not usually allowed on here but as with all web reviews, read them then make up your own mind.

My personal take is that the Canons will win with ease in this particular comparison - i.e. regarding low light performance - but obviously the Sony has other great features like is weatherproofing and lovely 1080p50/60.

Yesterday I found one known Belgian videostore listing the nx70 at allmost 3700 euro which is really too expensive for what you get in return, the canon xf100 is 3000euro and even older models like the pana hmx151, xh-a1s are 300 to 600 euro cheaper. Even the sony ax2000 sells at a lower price.

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

Proav.co.uk in the UK have it at around £2550, which is a bit better. The usual problem of exchange rates, taxes and "rip-off Britain" here. The only plus is that we get 2 years Silver Service support from Sony.

Still, it shouldn't be a surprise. The CX700 is US$ 1300... and over here, it's GB£ 1300!

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

i've seen the sony nx70 listed here in spain for the first time.
3160 € vat included in one of the cheapest shops. seems a bit steep.
the canon xf100 is 3000€ and the xf105 is 4000€, both including vat.
i'd need comparative reviews before choosing.

CVP have a video review online: YouTube - ‪SONY HXR-NX70‬‏

My internet connection has died, so I can't see if it's any good...

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

And as long as CH is adding an area for these, how about a dedicated "SR/XR/CX series" area?!?! Since many of us have these and there are probably hundreds of scattered orphan postings around DVi, should be worth a consolidation, and a home of their own??

These took over for the old HC series (now several YEARS past their "prime"... HC 9 was a '09 release?), and while they may be "consumer" cameras, they have found places in many a kit as either B/C cams, or as backup or even "main" cameras... Panasonic 700/900 have their own space, Canon HF/HF-S/HG series have a home... it's just the poor forgotten "little" Sonys that wander the threads homeless...

Mister H, can ye spare a thread?

Re: The new SONY HXR NX70 “Water & Dust proof”

The Sony HXR-NX70 is also here in the States! Just got a call from my friend that's a Sony Rep. He stated the initial shipments are headed to Sony Dealers that pre-ordered! My unit is expected to arrive early next week! Can't wait to test!
