My nx70 tests

It just arrived and the battery is charging, feels pretty solid hope it takes video as good as it looks. The little dc charger compartment covers is a little bit in the way when charging, hard to plug in the power cord but that's no big deal.

Re: My nx70 tests

Been shooting a little in auto and manual modes and im very impressed so far. Need to open the book up a test out some manual mode stuff. The macro mode is the best I have ever used and seen in a video camera so far.

Re: My nx70 tests

The great thing about this is that you'll find you don't have to charge batteries very often, this camera seems to run forever on one battery! The NP FV100 highest capacity battery is excellent.

Re: My nx70 tests

I can only comment on the CX700 which after a 2 hour theatre show using the FV100 battery is still showing over 6 hours of battery time left !!! In comparison the 970 battery on my NX5U is down to 2 hours.

Re: My nx70 tests

Gerald I see you have both the XA10 and the NX70, could you snap a few pictures of them side by side for a size comparison?

Re: My nx70 tests

Thanks! Wow the NX70 looks huge next to the Canon. Too bad Sony didn't include a zoom rocker on the handle, still won't stop me from getting it though.

Re: My nx70 tests

Hi,

Any chance of some pics on here? The other forum is asking me to register, and I don't really want to have to do that. Thanks in advance.

Re: My nx70 tests

Excellent - thanks! This is a useful comparison for a lot of people. I nearly bought the XF100 or XA10, then Sony came up with the NX70, my perfect camera.

Re: My nx70 tests

Thanks for the photos, Gerald!

That XA10 really is tiny! Great little camera too, by all accounts, but I'm not sure my giant hands would be good with that.

Re: My nx70 tests

Thanks for comparing the Canon XA10 and the Sony NX70 for low light. Looks like the Sony NX70 stands firm in this category when compared to the Canon XA10. I will do night testing (outside) this weekend and will try to post early next week.
