The HXR-NX70U camcorder is professional-ready for just about anything. Dust-proof and rain-proof1, this NXCAM™ camcorder was designed for shooting on location in rugged environments or inclement weather. Other features include an integrated Sony G lens with manual control, a supplied shotgun microphone, balanced XLR audio inputs, AVCHD™ codec, time code and more.
You can't always pick where and when to shoot. And you definitely can't control the weather. That's what makes the HXR-NX70U camcorder so useful. The sealed body design of the main chassis meets the international IP54 requirements for dust and rain resistance. So go where you need to go and shoot what you need to shoot—without worrying about whether your equipment can keep up.
Small as it is, the HXR-NX70U camcorder has serious production credentials. Time code with user bits automatically stamps each frame for positive identification in editing. The supplied Sony ECM-XM1 shotgun mic is highly directional—maximizing the signal and minimizing the noise. Balanced XLR mic inputs reject electromagnetic interference for unhindered audio. Switchable phantom power supports mics that need it, while true input level controls put you in charge of sound.
In many respects, it's the lens that takes the picture. That's why Sony outfitted the HXR-NX70U with a bright, sharp Sony professional G Lens. There's manual lens control with an assignable ring that operates focus, iris or zoom. The 10x optical zoom starts at a generous 26.4mm wide angle, for beautiful landscapes and flexible interior shots even when space is at a premium. It extends to 264mm telephoto (35mm equivalent).
The HXR-NX70U is ideal as a B cam or crash cam, and is compact enough to shoot discreetly without drawing attention. Because nowadays every shoot is a multi-camera shoot, it's the perfect camcorder to park on a bookshelf to get an additional point of view during interviews. You can hand it to a production assistant to get extra coverage, and take it with you everywhere to be ready for the unexpected.
Like many cameras, the HXR-NX70U shoots Full HD 1080p. But it goes much further with 24p, 30p and 60p recording. Recording at 60p for a 24p timeline results in beautiful slow motion at 40% actual speed. The camera also captures 12.3-megapixel still images.
With 96GB2 built-in flash memory, you can shoot more than seven hours of material at the camera's highest quality (HD PS mode, 28 Mbps), or up to 40 hours in HD LP mode (5 Mbps). Need more storage? A card slot accepts your choice of a Memory Stick PRO Duo™ or SD card (sold separately) to keep you shooting even longer. And with 2nd Edition firmware installed, the HXR-NX70U offers simultaneous recording of HD video footage to both the internal 96GB2 memory and a memory card, creating an instant and reliable backup.
Get the quality and performance of an NXCAM camcorder with the added bonus of dust- and rain-proof operation. The Sony HXR-NX70U camcorder was built for professionals working on location in rugged environments. Boasting IPX54 certification, its compact body is resistant to raindrops, splashes, sand and dust. With an ultra-wide angle 26.3mm Sony G lens, you'll capture brilliant, accurate color and sharp, detailed images out to the corners of the frame. An assignable lens ring allows for manual adjustment of focus, iris and zoom settings, while a professional-style (front to back) zoom rocker similar to that of the HXR-NX5 delivers variable, servo and zoom control. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video—from wide angle to full telephoto shooting.
