Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

i am personally interested in the compact nxcam they are bringing out.
i suppose this is it:
Sony Product Detail Page HXRNX70U

it could be what i'm looking for. a jvc hm100 type camera with good low light ability. although i'll have to wait and see some reviews.

the bigger one looks an interesting beast. will it be able to take most dslr lenses with an adaptor?

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

The HXRNX70U is clearly a CX700 in a different body. I have just got the CX700 and it does produce beautiful picture. See my comments in another post. This looks to be a nice implementation though its still doesn't appear to have independent gain control as far as I can tell. Maybe the manual will have more information when its available.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

Thanks for the link Brian. Looks like a game changer. I'll be watching this one closely now!

On second thoughts an online review from a well know UK site suggests it needs a bit more work.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

I'd be worried about the LCD hinge and how robust that is. It seems like a camera you need to look at in person to check the build quality or hear if the production cameras are OK in that regard.

There does seem to be lots of buttons and knobs that can be accidentally touched when being handled. No doubt techie geeks love them, but they mostly just get in the way.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

Looking at all these new cameras that are coming out, how long until do you guys think until everything is the size of an cell phone with a lens mount on the front of it?

Gotta admit, Love the fact that more and more companies are going the larger sensors.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

Can't wait to have a play with one of these. Bit worried though about the plastic-y comments elsewhere and you can hear that the add-on bits sound a bit cheapy on that FStop vid.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

Gary, think of it as being light.....

Random thoughts:

--For sure, this has got to be close to what we have been looking for. This may replace my 5D down the road.

--Seems a bit noisier than you would expect in a finished product, in the music video.

---I can't believe Canon is not going to weigh in on this market yet.....Unless they are going to fix current DSLR complaints in future models there, they would appear to be losing ground.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

yeah I know, that's how I convince myself when using Zoom audio recorders, especially the H1, at least they're light!!

They'll need to address the conflicting requirements for stills and HD video without using a OLPF that's going annoy the stills guys by lowering the resolution. RED do it to a certain extent, but there's a lot of processing involved and the camera is in another price bracket to DSLRs.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

I was just thinking about the LCD position-- ie., top mounted LCD. Seems like a bad idea to me.

The top mounted LCD sure kills the potential of a quick and easy jib shot. I have a light jib that I set up up for a quick and easy shot sometime, Even with my 5D, I can see whether the image is in frame when the camera is elevated to above my head. You lose that here.

Seems like they put it on top like that more as a novel approach than a good idea.

Re: Sony to expand 35mm large format NXCAM lineup

The top LCD could be influenced by the position of the LCD commonly seen on the RED Epic and Scarlet. Fortunately, there seems to be lots of screw positions for mounting other V/Fs and LCD in other locations. Perhaps, a bit of the RED there.

Hopefully, the right plastics have been selected, so that the camera is robust, but light.
