(^_^)!!!!!!! Ethan you still get the deal we talked about after NAB. If for some reason the sale falls through, I'll let it go for $1900 or less probably.

Interesting that the only prosumer model at the Sonystyle outlet is the FX7. Either they are sitting on a ton of reburbished returns or they are marking new units as refurbished to blow them out. Early march they were near $2000 now they've gone up $500.

I'm off to my first NAB the HMC-150 and Scarlet are high on my list of things to see. If the new panny comes in as rumored at $3,500 it will be interesting to see Sony's response. The Z1 and A1 prices don't seem to have come down in the last two years. My A1U cost less new from B&H 2 years ago than it does now and I got a $500 rebate that is now only $300.

I sure wouldn't object if Sony dropped the price of the Z7 to match the $3500 Panasonic price!

Well I guess the only options we have is still a FX1 Canon A1 The Panasonic HMC-150 and Scarlet. Ethan you still want the FX7? I'ma upgrade it to another FX1 :( since there's nothing new to catch my attention. I really need that extra stop of low light.

I'd be happy with a 3 1/3" CMOS, fixed lens XDCAM EX that records to compact flash.

Hey Philippe I'll put you one the list. I'm looking to get rid of it probably this week. Won't need it for a while so it will just be sitting here for 4 weeks doing nothing. I will send you a email later this week to let you know the progress.

The Camera is sold. Thanks Ethan. I'm going to actually go up to the XDCAM EX1. Nice doing wishful thinking with you guys here. A real bummer nothing new was introduced.

Bummer indeed. I really thought with the apparent demise of the FX7 that they'd have something coming. Guess not. EX1 should be a huge step up from the FX7. Wish I could afford a couple of those babies.
