A good camera . . . while it worked

  • Excerpt: The was a great camera while it worked. But after only 18 months of light usage (recording 2 church services each week) the card reader stopped working and would shut the camera down when you inserted a card. I sent the camera to Sony Repair and rec'd a ridiculous quote of $1600 to repair the camera.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Poor Dependability

I SO wanted to like this...

  • Summary: The good: 20X zoom lens. Low light capability- AMAZING!!! The bad: AC power to the camera plugs in where the battery goes, so if you're using the camera on AC power and want to take the camera, you have to disconnect AC, then plug the battery in it's place. This may not be a problem for some, but this is a dealbreaker for me.

  • Excerpt: All in all the camera is great so far, SDI out, two xlrs, 128gb back option, simultanious sd & hd recording, improved lowlight performance and more, stoked right? Well I purchased it as an upgrade from a V1U and was pleased with results until... When using log and transfer in FCP noticed all clips start at 00: 00: 00, thought this was odd so tried many work arounds.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: No Support for Timecode

  • Excerpt: Sony NX5 против Sony NX70
  • Pros: 3 кольца для мануальной регулировки и внушительный вид
  • Cons: плавающий автофокус, особенно непредсказуемый при низком свете, слабый стаб, огромная энергоемкость, неадекватно большой вес - если нацепить акум,свет,микрофон то около 4 кг - много не побегаеш...не пишет 1080р только интерлейс...дорого и старо

  • Excerpt: я её не взял, предпочёл другую, примерно за такие же деньги.
  • Pros: 20-ти кратный зум.
  • Cons: камера совсем не ФУЛЛ ХД, как написано в инструкции. ДД слабоват. AVCHD с низким битрейтом тоже недостаток. так же низкая надёжность записанных файлов и носителей.
