asbroadcasthk: Hello, we do need to check and see whether we can get the camcorder from Sony HK, For the Steady mode. NX30 do a better job the NX70 as NX70 just a normal steady mode which they put in most of the camcorder.
jtherock7: Hello. I saw you have a Sony nx-70. Can you do that video in English. Sorry. Question does the nx70 have the same "balanced" steady shot the nx-30 does? I don't see it but I wasn't sure. Please help and thanks so much for making videos!
Peter Lee: Thank you for answer.
asbroadcasthk: Hello Peter, I think so.
This is a semi-professional camcorder for people looking for compact size but still have some professional function like manual control, XLR audio input, Zebra else. Also it have simple function like Full Auto too. It have some manual function like Manual Iris, Exposure, White Balance, focus else for you when you need some control rather than full auto. So as beginner, if full manual function is too difficult for you, these Full/semi-auto function will help.
eddy castillo: hey Peta, why you pop corrar!
Peter Lee: Hi, if I am a beginner is the Sony HXR-NX30 a good choice? Thank you.
asbroadcasthk: Yes, you set the dial to manual exposure or Iris
JOSHTREESTUFF: Hi there. Does this have manual exposure settings ?
West Oak Street Boys: on the sony sight I found this in a package deal.... I am looking into buying this camera...
asbroadcasthk: Yes, it come with a special adaptor which you can put a 37mm (no 100% sure...) filter. But you can either choose, the hood or this adaptor as they cannot use together.
Kirby Weber: One last question: Could you possibly attach a ND Filter or Polarizing Filter onto the lens or hood?
asbroadcasthk: Hello Kirby, you are correct. This is not a camcorder which give you shallow depth of field like 5DMKIII or FS700 from Sony. The reason is this camcorder got wide lens + small CMOS which hard to get a shallow depth of field like you using a 14mm lens even on 5DMKIII.
I can say this is a camcorder which is good for Run and Gun situation or ENG condition.
Hope this information will helps ^_^
Kirby Weber: There is very few information on this camera throughout the internet, so im glad I came acoss this. I have noticed this camera seems to have no kind of shallow depth of field. Can anyone confirm this?
asbroadcasthk: Yes, as NX30 have XLR Input which you can connect to audio console.(make sure you get the right cable as some of the console out is big phone jack)
Please make sure the audio console master out is Mic or Line level as they have big different.
Also, you can use the Wireless mic system to connect and make you wireless (please be careful some of the wireless mic system is mic level only)
You can even stick it the mic on the speaker to prove hue sound (ground noise) through the audio console! ^_^
IPimpGrandmas: I'm an aspiring Concert Videographer, I just got a press pass for a very big music festival so i want to but a better camcorder, with this one, would i be able to get tapped into a sound board when i record a band?
asbroadcasthk: Is Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500M Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph 44mm ^_^
jtherock7: Great video! More importantly what kind of watch is that you are wearing its very nice?
asbroadcasthk: Sony don't give us the spec but because it LED which I think it will last long. Thanks.
Ron Burgundy: great review! thanks for the valuable info, i was thinking about buying this cam but am not sure how long the bulk on the projector will last. did sony give any specs on this when they sent u the prototype?
1./ Small , Compact
2/ Detachable Audio adapter
3/ Carl Zeiss Lens
4/ Wide Angle view
5/ Better Steady Mode
6/ Internal Memory
7/ LED Light
1/ Hood don't come with cup (my own opinion only)
2/ LED Light too weak in some situation
3/ No GPS (don't bother for me be honest)
4/ Some function is not too user friendly (because it too compact, some function have to set through the manual rather than a button access)
5/ Not water resistant if you compare with NX70.
Hope it helps.
Bojan Radovanovic: What is good and what is bad on the camera
Konstantin Konstantinovich: Sony HXR-NX30P unboxing - Western Siberia
Nacho Elola: gangnam style!
MONAD31: i just fall in love! i want this camera thank you for the review!
Jesse Waugh: Thanks!
yazkaz: Very nice ENG camera for light duty event work...
I want one badly, but it has to be NTSC (NX30U)
asbroadcasthk: The built in LED light is daylight.
papagmp: I have the same question - just got two NX30's this morning and have been playing with them all day.
Andreas Demetriades: its very handy, small, light, good LED for some shots, but i include the XLR handle and i mound a sony 15 LED video light on a separate battery on top
the nightmode is not very good but if you include the light you can get very interesting shots,
I use it for interview in clubs and events around the island i work and the quality and features is great.
Internal memory gives me up to 7 hours with full HD and battery life with standard battery gives me up to 3-4 hours of filming.
drakescz: what is the color temp of the built in LED light?
