PXW-X70 beauty video shot in 4K
The above beauty video was shot in 4K with the PXW-X70 which can be upgraded to 4K with CBKZ-X70FX (optional purchase) which enables shooting 4K (3840x2160) footage in XAVC Long GOP format.
The PXW-X70 is a compact, lightweight XDCAM camcorder with professional features including a high-sensitivity 1.0-type CMOS image sensor. It delivers high-resolution recording and superb performance even in low-light conditions and can record in various formats — including HD XAVC Long GOP (for 422 10-bit sampling), AVCHD, and DV® — to meet particular needs.
The lens features 12x Optical Zoom, which can be increased to 24x with Clear Image Zoom while retaining full resolution. Thanks to the 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and Sony’s sophisticated Digital Extender, zoom performance can be further increased to 48x to satisfy the demand of professionals for wide-angle to telephoto shooting in various scenes. The rich feature set includes a four position switchable ND filter, 3G-SDI interface, XLR handle unit, built-in Wi-Fi function, and the future ability to record in 4K Ultra High Definition* which will support at any situation, increasing the creative possibilities.
*A firmware update service (fee required) available from June 2015.
