1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X70 incorporates a 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.
The palm-sized PXW-X70 is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use experience.
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.
Direct streaming via Ustream*
The PXW-X70 is capable of direct streaming in real time using Ustream. Ideal for small events that do not require multi-camera switcher operation, it is possible to share scenes as they happen with high quality picture and sound. Two resolution modes are available: 1280x720 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p) or 640x360 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p).
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.
Wired LAN Connection*
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), MPEG HD and AVCHD formats to be sent over the Internet for remote storage on an FTP server.
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*.

Multi-format recording capabilities including XAVC QFHD 4K* and MPEG HD**
Proxy recording makes use of a low-bit-rate video file with the same time code as the XAVC format, high-bit-rate file. The small size of the proxy file makes it easy to quickly transfer over low-bandwidth networks, allowing preview and even editing of content with proxy content being swapped out the high bit-rate file when available. XAVC salvage function for XAVC files is also available.
XAVC Proxy Recording* and XAVC Salvage**
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.
