Image Sensor Type

1/2.88'' Back  Illuminated ClearVide EXMOR CMOS Sensor

Native 16:9, Back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS sensor. Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensors are well known now for low-light sensitivity, image clarity and drastically reduced noise.

Journalists rarely shoot under studio lighting conditions and Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers stunning lowlight sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light-gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lowlight conditions. The sensitivity is roughly double that of conventional CMOS sensors of the same size and pixel size. , 1/2.88” "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor with ClearVid™ array

A 1/2.88” Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor delivers bright, vivid, spectacularly detailed video footage, as well as 12 megapixel still images. With 6 megapixel (effective) video resolution, the image sensor actually captures video at four times the density of high definition resolution resulting in a sharper and more detailed 1920 x 1080 HD picture. In addition, "Exmor R" technology captures images with high resolution and high sensitivity, while the advanced Sony® BIONZ™ image processor improves camera response time and screens out noise to help ensure that the signal from each pixel is as pure as possible. 

Image Stabilization Technology

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. In addition, the innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling feature adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

Shooting / Drive modes

1920x1080 60P full HD recording at 28Mbps. The new PS mode with a 28Mbps recording bit-rate enables the HXR-NX70U to capture full HD at 60P. Its full HD 1920x1080 recordings can be slowed down too 24P during post production for beautiful 2.5 slow motion.

 GPS Geo Tagging A built-in GPS receiver allows viewing the HXR-NX70U’s current location coordinates on the LCD display, as well as "tagging" the clips with shooting locations. The receiver gives the ability to “tag” shooting locations as a future reference if it is necessary to return to the same location or to create a log of areas covered when surveying remote locations. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts the camcorder’s clock to the proper time zone when international travel is part of your assignment. Locations can be tracked on Google maps and all GPS data can be extracted with a PC.

 Direct Copy to external HDD without PC. As other Sony NXCAM camcorders, it is possible to “field backup” entire cards or important shots by copying footage directly from your camcorder to an external USB hard disk drive; all without the need for a computer. The HXR-NX70U can also access clips stored on the external hard drive for playback on a monitor, allowing utilizing the camcorder’s powerful playback indexing features.
