Sony HXR-NX70 First Impressions
Philip Johnston at the HD Warrior got to play with the Sony HXR-NX70 for 45 minutes and loved it (he's also already ordered his own.)
The camera performed flawlessly and it was great to be able to set your gain to 0dB giving you a very punchy picture indeed. I am a big audio buff and having balanced XLR inputs is a joy.
