Sony PXW-X70 XDCAM Compact Camcorder / without 4K upgrade!

Breadth of recording format capabilities and 4K ready

Provides multiple choices depending on application required, including XAVC, AVCHD and DV file-based recording. When recording in XAVC, the PXW-X70 uses the MXF file format, efficiently compressing full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 HD CODEC. Image sampling is 4:2:2 10-bit with high-efficiency Long-GOP compression at 50 Mbps, 35 Mbps or 25 Mbps. 

The PXW-X70 is also 4K ready. The optional CBKZ-X70FX upgrade adds 4K to the PXW-X70 Camcorder in 4K XAVC-Long format 4.2.0 8 Bit at 60Mbps using the broadcast MXF wrapper. We are also looking to possibly support a higher bit-rate recording mode than 60 Mbps for 3840x2160 XAVC-L in the future.

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 XDCAM camcorder packed with adaptable professional functions

The PXW-X70 weighs less than 1.4kg, including the XLR handle unit, battery (NP-FV70), lens hood and large eye-cup. It offers professional interfaces such as 3G-SDI and HDMI output connectors plus an XLR x2 handle unit with zoom lever. Other professional features include a manual lens ring that can intuitively control zoom and focus, ergonomic palm grip with large zoom lever, two SD memory card slots for backup, simultaneous and relay recording, and a three-level switchable ND filter.

  • 4K ready 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor for a wide range of shooting conditions


    The PXW-X70 incorporates a 4K-ready 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is approximately the same size as a Super 16mm film frame, 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

    The PXW-X70 has higher resolution than any other camcorder in its price range. The 1.0 sensor is brighter and offers more bokeh with a shallow depth of field than 1/3-inch or 1/4.7-inch sensors.

  • Advanced BIONZ X image processing engine

    An evolved BIONZ engine achieves more lifelike images, and enables the addition of new features that take advantage of faster processing.

  • Compact body

    The palm-sized PXW-X70 is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use experience.

  • Streaming

    This feature allows images to be streamed live from the PXW- X70 for viewing at a remote location. Data transfer rate, specified by two image quality menu settings (1280 x 720p and 640 x 360p), can be selected to suit the network environment being used. [Requires V2.0 or greater firmware]

  • FTP Transfer

    This feature supports FTP file transfers on the PXW-X70, allowing content files recorded with the XAVC Proxy Recording feature and other content files shot in XAVC (4K/HD) and AVCHD formats to be sent over the Internet for remote storage on an FTP server. [Requires V2.0 or greater firmware]

  • Wired LAN Connection

    When wireless LAN is unavailable, this feature allows the PXW- X70 to be connected to the Internet over a wired connection via separately available USB adapter cable “VMC-UAM2” and Network adaptor kit “CBK-NA1”, allowing files to be streamed or transferred by FTP. [Requires V2.0 or greater firmware]

  • Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile™

    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.

    * 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 cannot be guaranteed with all smartphones and tablet computers.

  • Multi-format recording and 4K ready

    The PXW-X70 records XAVC Long GOP 422 10-bit 1920 x 1080 50p/60p/50i/60i/ 30p/25p/24p at 50 Mbps and 35 Mbps, 1920 x 1080 50i/60i at 25 Mbps, as well as 1280 x720 50p/60p at 50 Mbps. It is also possible to record AVCHD at 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x720 and DV. The PXW-X70 is also 4K ready and a paid upgrade is available now. This adds 4K to the PXW-X70 Camcorder in 4K XAVC-Long format at 60Mbps using the broadcast MXF wrapper. We are also looking to possibly support a higher bit-rate recording mode than 60 Mbps for 3840x2160 XAVC-L in the future.

  • XAVC Proxy Recording

    Proxy recording supports the use of a low-bit-rate video file in place of an XAVC format, high-bit-rate file with the same time code. The low-bit-rate proxy file, being smaller in size, can be used in many ways to increase efficiency. For example, the smaller file can be more easily transmitted to remote locations, while editing is greatly facilitated by the use of the smaller file, which is replaced at the completion of editing with the high- bit-rate file. [Requires V2.0 or greater firmware]

  • Dual media slots, “Simul” or “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, as well as SDXC and SDHC cards. Two media slots can record in either “Simul” or “Relay” mode. “Simul” 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 Simul mode.

  • ND filter control mechanism

    The PXW-X70 is equipped with a variable ND Filter function, allowing you to choose four conventional mechanical ND filter positions from 1/4ND, 1/16 to 1/64ND.

  • Superb night shooting

    In addition to having a sensitive Exmor R CMOS Sensor, the PXW-X70 has a NightShot mode that bypasses the camera’s IR filter and includes a switchable infra-red light, so you can shoot in total darkness.

  • ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens

    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.

  • 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, Digital Extender can double this range again, up to 48x zoom. Super Resolution Technology is a Sony original intelligent interpolation which analyses the input image and increases the resolution of the image.

  • Lens ring

    The lens ring enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming, depending on which mode is selected.

  • 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.

  • Slow & Quick Motion

    Smooth slow or quick motion with full HD quality is available without any extra processing. 2x slow motion can be easily achieved by setting the recording format to 25p and the frame rate to 50 fps. The frame rate can also be set to 1 fps for 50x 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 without XLR cable

    The MI Shoe* on top of the PXW-X70 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 handle is attached to the MI Shoe, it is not possible to use the MI Shoe to control the DWZ-D receiver.

  • Viewfinder includes amazing OLED technology

    This 0.39-inch 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 colour-breaking phenomenon.
