XDCAM XAVC HD422 hand-held camcorder  


 

Sony Electronics Inc. is pleased to announce an end user mail-in rebate exclusively for students and educators enrolled in film, video and photography programs.
From July 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017, students and educators who purchase a PXW-X70 are eligible to receive a $ 150.00 mail-in cash rebate from Sony.

End users who purchase a PXW-X70 together with a CBKZ-X70FX will received a $249 instant rebate on the CBKZ-X70FX.
Expires September 30, 2017
(This rebate is also available to end-users purchasing a CBKZ-X70FX who previously purchased a PXW-X70 between September 11, 2016 and March 30, 2017)



The PXW-X70 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 Mbps. 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, simultaneous or relay recording, and independent record control. In addition, a live streaming feature and 4K recording functionality are planned to be supported by a future upgrade which is scheduled to be announced later.

1.0" type Exmor R CMOS sensor for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X70 incorporates a 1.0" type Exmor R CMOS sensor to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The sensor has 14.2 million effective pixels enhancing shooting under severe lighting conditions and providing more freedom of creative expression.

High sensitivity and high resolution
Thanks to the 1.0" type Exmor R CMOS sensor, the PXW-X70 has high sensitivity 1.67 stops brighter than a 1/2.88" type sensor. The camcorder also has higher resolution than any other camcorder in its price range. The 1.0" type sensor is brighter and offers more background defocus with a shallow depth of field than 1/3" type or 1/4.7" type sensors.

Compact body
The palm-sized PXW-X70 is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use experience.
 
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with lens ring
The PXW-X70 is supplied with a fixed 29 mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens. Ideal for capturing grand landscapes, it also provides up to 12x optical zoom. It also has one lens ring which enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming, depending on which mode is selected.

Clear Image Zoom
The 12x optical zoom can be doubled to 24x with Clear Image Zoom, maintaining full resolution using Super Resolution Technology. In addition, the Digital Extender can double this range again, up to 48x zoom. Super Resolution Technology is a Sony original intelligent interpolation which analyzes the input image and increases the resolution of the image.

Manual controls
The manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift and easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN/ISO and shutter speed.

ND filter control mechanism
The PXW-X70 is equipped with multipule ND Filter selections, allowing you to choose four conventional mechanical ND filter positions from 1/4ND, 1/16 to 1/64ND.

Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile, and Video/Audio Streaming for future upgrade
The PXW-X70 can be remotely controlled from a smartphone or tablet computer (iOS 4.3 through 7.0 or Android 2.3 through 4.3) via a Wi-Fi connection, and recorded video files can be transferred from camcorder to smartphone in MP4 format.* In addition to file transfer, streaming via 4G/LTE is planned to be available by firmware upgrade in the future. One-touch authentication is also possible with smartphones that offer NFC connectivity. The required Content Browser Mobile mobile smartphone application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.
* Wi-Fi operation is not be guaranteed with all smartphones and tablet computers.

Multi-format recording and 4K ready
The PXW-X70 records XAVC Long GOP 422 10-bit 1920x1080 60p/50p/60i/50i/30p/25p/24p at 50 Mbps and 35 Mbps, 1920x1080 60i/50i at 25 Mbps, as well as 1280x720 60p/50p at 50 Mbps. It is also possible to record AVCHD 420 8-bit at 1920x 1080 and 1280x720 and DV. The PXW-X70 is also 4K ready and can handle 4K recordings with a future upgrade.

Dual media slots for simultaneous/relay recording, and independent record control
The PXW-X70 is equipped with two memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2), Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo and Memory Stick XC-HG Duo media*, as well as SDXC* and SDHC cards. Two media slots can record in either simultaneous or relay mode. Simultaneous mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards, while relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full. The user can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the PXW-X70, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in simultaneous mode.
* XAVC can be recorded on either SDXC or Memory Stick XC cards due to high bit rate.

Slow & Quick Motion
Smooth slow or quick motion with full HD quality is available without any extra processing. 2.5x slow motion can be easily achieved by setting the recording format to 24p and the capturing frame rate to 60 fps. The frame rate can also be set to 1 fps for 60x quick motion. In order to go into the S&Q Motion mode, the camera needs to be in XAVC & AVCHD mode (Not DV mode) and Manual mode.

Picture Profile
You can fine-tune the look of movies before shooting by adjusting gradation (black level, gamma and black gamma), adjustment (mode, intensity, tone and depth), basic (gamma and mode) and more. Adjusted parameters can be saved along with other settings as a profile, and up to seven profiles can be stored for later recall.

99 Camera Profiles
It is possible to save up to 99 camera settings under different profile numbers. User can copy the settings from one PXW-X70 to another PXW-X70 so that user can shoot with multiple cameras in the same settings (only works with same model camcorders). Also, users can save camera settings for each scene, so that it is possible to recall proper settings for the scene immediately.

Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) for flexible connection
The MI Shoe* on top of the PXW-X70 camera body has several possibilities to be used to attach the supplied handle, which will allow Rec Start/Stop, Zoom & Audio Control. Using the MI Shoe connection and the optional adapter SMAD-P3, the audio signal from a UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 wireless microphone package can be input from the wireless microphone receiver to the PXW-X70 without an XLR cable. The power can be supplied from the PXW-X70 to the receiver and a battery is not required for the receiver operation.
* It is not recommended to use the HVL-LBPC light with the MI Shoe as the battery requirement is too high. When the supplied handle is attached to the MI Shoe, it is not possible to use the MI Shoe to control the UWP-D receiver.

Viewfinder includes amazing OLED technology
This 0.39” type OLED viewfinder offers superb OLED brightness, contrast and response. The high resolution (1,440K dot) of the viewfinder allows better precision of manual focus operations and eliminates any color-breaking phenomenon.

Wide choice of connections
The camcorder offers numerous connections to suit the broadcast workflow, including 3G HD-SDI, standard size HDMI connector, USB and composite output. Both TC and Rec Trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an external recording device.
* SDI / HDMI / Composite can not be used at the same time.

CBKZ-X70FX: $499.00
Optional 4K license key that provides support for QFHD shooting at 30p/25p/24p, allowing the PXW-X70 to capture scenes with stunning quality and at high resolution*. Furthermore, for projects finalized in HD, 4K recording greatly expands the creative possibilities by enabling digital panning, camera-shake correction and other post-production effects.
*Firmware version 2.0 is required prior to installing the CBKZ-X70FX license key.
