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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Wow sorry about that, my IPhone pics would not post to this forum but did on AVS. I will try to get to my city computer with Internet today, I live in the woods crappy Internet service wouldn't upload.

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.

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.

Here are some low light tests for the nx70 and canon xa10

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.
