  • Is the Sony HXC-D70 the new go to studio camera?

    If you’re near to take on building a new TV workspace or upgrading an existing one into an HD era, then one of the most significant selections you’ll have to make is your selection of camera ‘chain’. (A camera chain usually includes a Camera Head, Viewfinder, Cable Adaptor, CCU (Camera Control Unit) and Joystick or Rotary dial controlled RCP (Remote Control Panel).

    Choosing a studio camera founded on its original value can generate difficulties and need noteworthy compromises or added spending down the line.  For instance, selecting a smaller sensor on a professional video camera may save cash on the cameras but that saving may well be more than wiped out by the need for extra studio lights (and a bigger electric bill) needed to compensate for the lesser sensitivity of that sensor.  A smaller sensor will also leave you with a deeper depth of field and that may create a far ‘harder’ appearance inside the workspace owing to an increase in focus on background / foreground objects.

    It has a very accustomed look and feel, and it is fully laden with all of the cutting-edge features enclosed within Sony’s excellent PMW-350 XDCAM EX HD camcorder.

    The HXC-D70K is a high-performance yet affordable HD camera that inherits field-proven operability from the highly regarded DXC-D Series of system cameras. The camera is equipped with the latest digital HD multi-core technology that integrates perfectly with the HXCU-D70 HD multicore camera control unit (CCU). Furthermore, the existing CCU-D50 CCU can also be used with the HXC-D70K for migration from SD to HD live production.

    The HXC-D70K is supplied with the CBK-VF01 3.5-inch colour LCD monocular viewfinder as standard. The standard 16x Fujinon supplied lens offers 2x Digital Extender function and Auto Focus.

    The D70’s great class images are transferred to the CCU via a 26-pin Multi-core (Sony CCZ type) cable.  Connectivity at the camera head comprises of DC power input and output, SDI input and output, Gen-lock input, Prompter output, Test output, Audio input, Earphone and Intercom input and output.   At the CCU end there are contacts for Sync input and output, Prompter input, Component/RGB output, S-Video output, HDMI output, Composite input and output, plus an additional four SDI outputs which seems like overkill but someone may need it. So for an economical camera system the HXC-D70 is tremendously well armed and makes for an excellent professional video camera.
