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

Look forward to hearing how these new toys are! Unless there are major flaws, might be my next "big" camera... features look good, I like some of the upgrades, liking the idea of 60p as I like the progressive "look", but the consumer (CX560) I looked at was so "toy like" I don't think I could deal with it! That plus some mixed reviews on the CX700 make me think the NX70 is a better bet.

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

I like this camera from what little is out there in video. I have owned the Sony cx560 and the auto focus was awful and the blues were way to vibrant did not look good, had the Sony nx5u great camera but to big/heavy for hand held everyday use for me. I had the panny 700,750,900 loved there outdoor good light 60p but low light not so good. I had the canon xa10 great camera but not 60p then I got the xf100 but hard for me to dial in the picture quality and had to render every clip before viewing on my external hdd or online, double workflow but great camera. I got back my xa10 and love it but very tempted to get the new Sony for the 60p and macro. Wonder if the new Sony is better than the canons or just has some different options but not worth switching. Hard to choose they all have some great features.

I am also interested to see how it is different from the CX700. Of particular interest will be the backfocus performance on zooming. Not good on any of the small Sony's that need to be refocused at each zoom setting.

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

What I've been looking for, but haven't seen yet in these cameras, is a control for manual gain. Everything I've seen so far has auto gain that can't be controlled, resulting in excessive noise. Show me manual gain and I'll be very happy!

Canon has manual gain control and the Sony nx70u doesn't? that stinks I thought it had all manual controls either on the camera body or LCD.

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

The CVP review , referenced earlier in this thread show it to have manual gain control in the menu. As an aside my CX700 or XR500 has less grain in auto than my NX5U.

Done (finally).

This "pre-release" thread for the NX70 now draws to its natural conclusion.

Please start new NX70 topics or join others that are already in progress. Thanks all,
