This B&H Kit pairs the Sony PXW-X70 Pro XDCAM Camcorder with the Steadicam Merlin 2 Stabilizer, including a vest and arm. With this bundle and some practice, you'll have all the components needed to capture smooth, moving shots in 4:2:2, 10-bit color at rates up to 1080p/60.

The PXW-X70 packs a backside-illuminated, 1"-type sensor into a body size usually associated with smaller-sensor cameras. Its Exmor R image sensor provides cinematic depth of field and improved low light performance. Dual SD card slots allow for simultaneous backup recording or relay capture in the XVAC Long-GOP codec at up to 50 Mb/s. The PXW-X70's integrated 12x optical zoom features manual/automatic zoom and focus control. Additional camera highlights include 3G-SDI and HDMI output, dual XLR audio inputs, built-in mechanical ND filters, and WiFi remote control.

The Merlin 2 can be used on its own for handheld moves, or it can be attached to the swing arm and vest for extended dynamic shots. By transferring the weight of the stabilizer and camera to the user's hips and core, the arm/vest combo decreases arm and shoulder fatigue, enabling longer operating times. The Merlin 2's maximum 5-pound capacity can accommodate the under 3-pound PXW-X70 plus an external monitor or other accessory (not included).
