Good Sony cam well matchable with our ex3 multicam production. Only one problem: do not expect using this cam in autofocus mode on a jib, it's far to be as good as the one of the previous generation (EX1, ex3)

I had great results with this camera, until today. I bought the camera in January 2015 then upgraded to 4K when that became possible. I didn't take the 4K seriously but some clients demand it.

My overall opinion on the camera itself is rather favorable. I've had the X70 for about a week now and took it for several days of shooting in the Sierra Foothills. The fit and feel of the camera is nice, feels solid and well constructed (except for the zoom rocker which could be a bit better sealed...

I have used this X70 as a second unit camera in 24 DIY TV shows. It has been spray painted (by accident) been in a concrete dust many times, outside in the rain e-z and its good as new. The 4K upgrade works great.

Using for multi-cam live streaming through a Roland switcher. Great picture quality.

The upgrade makes my PXW-X70 work perfectly for the next several years as the show I film for makes great strides and advances in the quality of footage, work, and editing. Very easy to install and all one needs to do is follow directions to get it up and running.

I wasn't sure I was going to upgrade but I love the 4k video of my PXW X150, so I took the plunge. I love this upgrade. And the good news is that any difficulties people posted about earlier seem to be either gone or I was just lucky.

No-sweat install. I'd prepared myself for the worst after reading other reviews. I followed the directions and, viola!, it's done in about two minutes. and I'm no tech genius.

This is truly an amazing little camera. I bought it to replace my old NX5U.It does everything that much larger camera does but it's better in the following ways:The image is sharper and clearer due to the the huge chip and XAVC codec.It achieves far better depth of field.

Great quality camcorder with a few (not all though) handy professional features. I tried and tested this one and liked many aspects of it, including the silent engine, sturdy grip/mic unit, and viewfinder image quality.
