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?
eddy castillo: hey Peta, why you pop corrar!
Peter Lee: Thank you for answer.
asbroadcasthk: Sony don't give us the spec but because it LED which I think it will last
Kirby Weber: One last question: Could you possibly attach a ND Filter or Polarizing
Filter onto the lens or hood?
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.
Nacho Elola: gangnam style!
drakescz: what is the color temp of the built in LED light?
IPGtv Concert Videography: 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 ^_^
JOSHTREESTUFF: Hi there. Does this have manual exposure settings ?
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.
Bojan Radovanovic: What is good and what is bad on the camera
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 ^_^
papagmp: I have the same question - just got two NX30's this morning and have been
playing with them all day.
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! ^_^
jtherock7: Great video! More importantly what kind of watch is that you are wearing
its very nice?
yazkaz: Very nice ENG camera for light duty event work... I want one badly, but it
has to be NTSC (NX30U)
asbroadcasthk: Advantage 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 Disadv 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.
West Oak Street Boys: on the sony sight I found this in a package deal.... I am looking into
buying this camera...
asbroadcasthk: Yes, you set the dial to manual exposure or Iris
Peter Lee: Hi, if I am a beginner is the Sony HXR-NX30 a good choice? Thank you.
Jesse Waugh: Thanks!
SONNE: i just fall in love! i want this camera thank you for the review!
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!
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 of it. 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.
asbroadcasthk: The built in LED light is daylight.
KHALIDz M: Nx firty :)
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. Peter A&S
