Is the video from the HDMI-out also 1080p60? Is it 10bit 4:2:2?
Asked by: clyde
The HDMI will output 1080p60. However it will more than likely only be 8-Bit 4:2:2.

Just plug the remote wire from the tripod VCT-870RM to the camera remote and open the door or pull-open the eye piece and the Sony HXR-MC88 will respond. Have fun.

Can you connect an external mic with a 1/8" plug to this camera? If not, can an XLR adaptor be used?
Asked by: Vanessa
I have added an XLR to input one and a wireless XLR microphone to input two. It worked great. There is a microphone input on the side and I think it disengages the onboard microphone so it records like the on board microphone only.

How close will the image be to the Sony PXW-X70? ...

How close will the image be to the Sony PXW-X70? What is the major difference between the two?
Asked by: Mark
The MC88 is basically a stripped down version of the PXW-X70. The X70 adds an SDI output, the ability to upgrade to 4K and out of the box it can record HD at up to 50 Mbps. The MC88 has HDMI only, no 4K upgrade and is limited to 28 Mbps. If you were to shoot with the X70 at 28 Mbps it would look pretty much the same as the MC88 though.

Can you use the USB out to stream?

Can you use the USB out to stream?
Asked by: Love Walk
I've tried a few times and never gotten the camera to show up in streaming software like hangouts, zoom , or livestream, I think USB is only for file transfer and just not fast enough to handle high quality video. To stream with this camera I would recommend getting a capture card.

This has the same sensor as the HDR-CX900, a 1" CMOS sensor, ive found on the CX900 it has noted issues with falling out of focus often and taking too many seconds to regain clarity, does this camera have the same flaws in focusing as the CX900 ?
Asked by: daryl
This is a newer version with the RS sensor. I have a similar (but 4K) AX700 and the auto focus is BRILLIANT and QUICK. No wandering focus like occasionally happened with my older AX100.
