Overview

Overview

The Sony PXW-X70 XDCAM HD422 Camcorder features a 1.0 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 fantastic low light performance, as well as offering more depth of field control as demanded by today’s diverse shooting requirements. The new camcorder has the ability to record High Definition in XAVC Long GOP, enabling 422 10-bit sampling at 50 Mbit/s. This in-turn supports a broadcast-quality workflow, increasingly adopted by productions in many different professional applications.

A fixed ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens achieves 12x optical zoom which can be doubled to 24x with Clear Image Zoom and doubled again to 48x with Digital Extender zoom. There is also a ND Filter function, allowing you to choose four conventional mechanical ND filter positions. Advanced features include Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile, plus dual media slots, “Simul” or “Relay” recording, and independent record control.

Features:

  • XAVC 4K (QFHD) 100Mbps* recordings at 30p/25p/24p, plus MPEG HD422 and MPEG HD420**
  • Select an output from HDMI, SDI, and composite while recording QFHD, plus a salvage function for XAVC file is available***
  • XAVC HD, AVCHD and DV with advanced network functions such as QoS Streaming in Network Client Mode and Ustream® direct streaming added via firmware version 3.0

    * XAVC 4K (QFHD) 100Mbps recording requires Version 3.0 firmware plus optional CBKZ-X70FX software key
    ** MPEG HD recording requires Version 3.0 firmware plus optional CBKZ-SLMP upgrade
    *** Requires Version 3.0 firmware or higher 

Network functions including Ustream and QoS Streaming*

The PXW-X70 features QoS Streaming for high quality of transmission when streaming to the PWS-100RX1 (not included) in Network Client Mode, and direct streaming using Ustream, with no need for a separate PC setup when using version 3.0 or higher firmware. The camcorder also provides Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile™ software. 

* Requires Version 3.0 firmware or higher

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.

* WiFi operation cannot be guaranteed with all smartphones and tablet computers

1.0 type Exmor R CMOS Sensor for stunning picture quality

High sensitivity and fantastic resolution with 14.2 million effective pixels delivers striking detail and colours, even in low light conditions.

Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* Lens

The lens offers a 12x optical zoom, which can be increased to 24x with Clear Image Zoom while retaining full resolution thanks to Super Resolution Technology. Zoom performance can be doubled at any point with a Digital Extender by up to 48x.

Compact, lightweight form factor with adaptable professional functions

The PXW-X70 weighs less than (3.09 lb) 1.4 kg, and offers professional interfaces such as 3G-SDI and HDMI output connectors plus a 2 x XLR handle unit with zoom lever.

Breadth of recording format capabilities and 4K ready

Provides multiple choices depending on application required, including XAVC, AVCHD and DV file-based recording. XAVC 4K (QFHD) 100Mbps recording requires Version 3.0 firmware and optional CBKZ-X70FX software key (not included).
