I purchased 4 Sony PXW-X70 cameras. Do I need 4 separate upgrades?
Asked by: Tommy
My guess is you would need 4 separate upgrades because they are tied to the camera. You could contact Sony and see if there is bulk licensing.

does this firmware upgrade allow 4k recording at 100mbps? or isn't limited to 60 mbps?
Asked by: john
Hi john, The CBKZ-X70FX allows 4K recording at 100mbps. However, you need to make sure your camera is updated to the latest firmware v3.03: https://pro.sony/ue_US/product-resources/software/pxw-x70-v3-03 Regards, Erin

I just upgraded my PXW-X70, which is my first ...

I just upgraded my PXW-X70, which is my first foray into the 4K world. The manual says recording time shooting at 4K/100mbs is about 1GB per minute, but my initial test clips seem to be over 3GB per minute. Any guidance?
Asked by: scott
That is bizarre are you should really be capturing about 80 seconds worth of footage to get 1GB files when working with 100Mbps. Do try some more tests and be sure you are not recording proxy files as well and checking on the clips folder. Do also try to format the card prior to taking new clips. Do try to record with just the cap on the camera to see if there are any fluctuations.

question

I bought my x70 on line, how do I know that camcorder is in US or not?
Asked by: Thao V.
Hi Thao V, If you purchased your PXW-X70 from B&H and it is NOT a PAL camcorder it is the USA version. You will know it is the PAL version if the model # ends with an E - PXW-X70E. Ralph

question

I destroyed my camera and am considering purchasing a new one - is the license transferable to a new camera?
Asked by: Sterling N.
It appears that Sony answered your question a few days ago. If you do purchase another PXW-X70, note that B&H has it in stock with the 4K license key for a few hundred dollars more that I spent without the upgrade.
