Sony has announced the PMW-X70, a small XDCAM camcorder which will be 4K capable with a future upgrade.

Writes Phil Rhodes of RedShark News, "Perhaps the most arresting development in the X70 is the sensor – the same one-inch chip as has already been deployed in the FDR-AX100 and in at least one of Sony's compact stills cameras. This technological convergence is no great surprise, although this is the first time we've seen  the sensor married to a 4:2:2 10-bit recording system, which should be as able as anything to demonstrate the successes – and failures, if any – of the imager."
