I have been filming for approximately 6 years in the outdoor industry. In which, camera men/women have to pack in a lot of equipment on their backs each day that they head out to film which creates a constant struggle to be as small and light as possible without compromising quality.

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...

We have two this model camcorders working greatly, and easier to use and setup.

I got picked to be part of a show that is to air on the outdoor Channel. While the sponsors provide all my hunting gear, I was required to provide my own camera. I got this camera because it was the smallest of its kind and would be easiest for me to take in hunting situations.

It drains Batery power much too quickly. Sony customer support is very poor. Their advice to me was to read the book which is not user friendly. When I did speak with someone he said that he had to read the book and call me back which by the way, he never did.The "specialist " admitted that he...

Overall love it and find it to do what I want it to do. White balance is a little burried for run and gun shooting. For a fixed lens and a video camera format you can still generate a useable amount of shallow depth of field. I really think my IR light is broken out of the box.

My producer is completely pleased with the clips from our first production using this camera.I haven't unlocked the 4K license yet (but other owners tell me that it is a nuisance to do so).
