My NX70 just arrived

My NX70 just arrived, most impressed on the size, build quality etc, balance is perfect with the battery sitting in the centre. Great to have the larger LCD back.

Couple of small points, would have liked a button or ability to assign Steadyshot to 'my buttons' and it's the first pro Sony which i cant have the VF and LCD running at the same time! (unless I'm being stupid) which is a great shame as it would be great to use the VF whilst using the LCD to control the touch buttons

My Sony NX70 just arrived too!

Received my Sony NX70 today (here in the States)! It is exactly what I need (size, feel, run and gun, etc). Too bad I won't be able to use it til this weekend (working on an audio recording project for a client). Looking forward to test footage real soon!

Re: My NX70 just arrived

Yes, it would be nice to have an OIS toggle button or option for when you have to go from tripod to handheld and back again. Off/standard/active/off... Just takes a bit of discipline I suppose.

I find myself "hunting" bit in the menu for options like this, but I'm sure I will get used to it over time.

Yes, OIS button would be great, we've noticed it too. The camera looks nice, although I would prefer it balanced a little more to the back, and an additional record button on the top handle. Touch screen is also taking time to get used to.
