Sony's new rain & dust proof*1 HXR-NX70U camcorder is truly a professional performer that is compact enough to go anywhere and capture the action anytime, in challenging shooting conditions.
The HXR-NX70U is compact in size, but it is loaded with the latest features that professional shooters demand for tough assignments in rugged environments.
This camcorder is ready to capture amazing footage no matter where your next adventure may take you, from humid rainforests to sandy deserts. You'll be ready to roll with the action as it happens without worrying about adding a rain cover to protect the main camera body. The Exmor R™ CMOS sensor delivers superior performance in low-light situations where natural ambiance is desired, boasting roughly double the sensitivity of conventional CMOS sensors.
The HXR-NX70U allows you to take a hands-on approach by incorporating a switchable lens ring for manual control focus, iris and zoom functions. Still photos can also be taken simultaneously during video recording by using the Dual Rec function. Suitable for all international formats, the latest 60p recording options provide the precision you need for shooting professional-quality HD video.
CinemaTone technology creates stunning video with deep film-like skin tones, which give your work a realism that viewers will remember. The new ultra-wide angle 26.3mm Sony G™ Lens lets you capture more of the action with sharp images and brilliant, accurate colors. The HXR-NX70U is also equipped with 96 Gigabytes of embedded Flash memory, so you can record and store up to 40 hours of highdefinition video footage in HD-LP mode. A high-resolution 3.5" touch-screen display lets you compose and view your shots while zebra and peaking indicators help you make precise focus and exposure adjustments.
A built-in GPS receiver gives you the ability to "tag" your shooting locations and the time zone will adjust automatically as you travel the globe on assignment. Your locations can be tracked via Google Maps™ mapping service and all GPS data can be extracted with a PC.
