Sony Announces the PXW-X70 XDCAM Professional Camcorder

Sony's New Compact PXW-X70 XDCAM Professional Camcorder Combines the Benefits of a 1"-Type Sensor and XAVC Technologies in a Handheld Model

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 30, 2014) - Sony's PXW-X70 professional camcorder is the first XDCAM model to combine the format's file-based capabilities with a compact form factor. The camcorder records high-definition video in XAVC Long GOP, delivering 4:2:2 10-bit sampling at 50 Mb/s, to support broadcast-quality workflows in newsgathering and documentary applications. Read more about the Sony PXW-X70 here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1072752-REG/sony_pxw_x70_professional_xdcam_compact.html

The PXW-X70 is Sony's first professional compact camcorder to include Wi-Fi-enabled control via smartphones or tablets, using the Content Browser Mobile application. An upcoming upgrade is planned to enable the 4K-ready PXW-X70 to record in 4K Ultra-High Definition, and to perform file transferring and live video streaming.

The Sony PXW-X70 XDCAM compact camcorder features a 1"-type Exmor R CMOS Sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels. The sensor, which is even larger than the Super 16mm film frame, delivers high resolution and superb low-light performance, while giving shooters more control over depth of field.

This newest addition to the expanding next-generation XDCAM family follows the recently announced PXW-X180, and builds upon Sony's successful heritage of compact professional camcorders. The new PXW-X70 is designed to be Sony's most compact XDCAM professional camcorder, and also one of its most versatile, making the flexible XAVC workflow available to a wider range of shooting applications.

Sony PXW-X70 Camcorder Key Features:

• 1.0-type Exmor® R CMOS Sensor and Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* lens: High sensitivity and high resolution, with 14.2 million effective pixels for striking detail and color, even in low-light conditions. The lens offers a 12x optical zoom, which can be increased to 24x with Clear Image Zoom while retaining full resolution using Super Resolution Technology. Zoom performance can be doubled using a digital extender by up to 48x.

• Compact, lightweight XDCAM camcorder packed with adaptable professional functions: The PXW-X70 weighs less than 3 pounds, including the XLR handle unit, battery (NP-FV70), lens hood and large eye cup. Professional interfaces include 3G-SDI and HDMI output connectors, an XLR (2x) handle unit with zoom lever, manual lens ring that can intuitively control zoom and focus, ergonomic palm grip with large zoom lever, two SD memory card slots for backup, simultaneous and relay recording, and a three-level switchable ND filter.

• Recording format options: Multiple choices are available depending on application, including XAVC, AVCHD and DV file-based recording. When recording in XAVC, the PXW-X70 uses the MXF file format, efficiently compressing full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 CODEC. Image sampling is 4:2:2 10-bit with high-efficiency Long-GOP compression at 50 Mbps, 35 Mbps or 25 Mbps.

• Built-in Wi-Fi control functionality for monitoring and remote control versatility: Near Field Communication functions enable easy, one-touch wireless LAN connection to a smartphone or tablet, while the Content Browser Mobile application allows confirmation of shot angles and operation of the camcorder by remote, including field angle setting, spot focus and iris adjustment.
