March 25, 2011


Tweet

New teaser highlighting the build quality on the recently announced HXR-NX70E. Sony’s higher end ENG cameras are well built beasts, and this smaller version claiming to be the ‘First Rain and Dust Proof Camera’ definitely looks like a solid performer. An video ad so ’sexy’ it’s almost NSFW.
