Sony NXCAM HXR-NX70U Camcorder-Zoom Problem
on Jan 25, 2012 at 12:53:26 pm

I hear the Sony NXCAM HXR-NX70U Camcorder has major issues with the zoom control. Does anyone know if Sony is going to fix this problem? I do a lot of outside sports video and I really like the waterproof feature the camera has, but don't want to purchase one if the zoom is as bad as I hear it is. Any thoughts or help on this subject would be much appreciated.

DO NOT buy it. The zoom is the least of your worries. I had three of them, testing and sending back hoping to get lucky. The killer problem is lack of sharp focus on the edges and the WORST chromatic aberration I have ever encountered.

Details here:

BTW the firmware fix for the zoom will be out soon, but it is just a way to set the speed. The rocker is far too touchy. But I would have lived with it had the image quality been acceptable.

the 1080 60p was nice, though.
