Recomendation Query for Soccer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am looking at the Sony HXR-NX70U to videotape my kids soccer games. I want a top quality device which is also rain proof and dust proof as conditions are often wet up here in the PNW. Does anyone have suggestions that I ought to consider in addition to the Sony?

Thanks in advance for your insight and advice.

Sony HDR GW77: just as rainproof and dustproof, sharper and better image (next generation sensor/OIS). Cheaper.

The external mic with the 70 cannot be used and retain waterproof. So the audio in the rain is no better than the GW77 (whose audio is actually very good).

The key difference is the amount of manual control: you cannot fix the shutter speed on the GW77, but it does have manual focus, WB, exposure.
