Pmw-350

I am very interested to hear about anyone who has purchased one of these cameras and has used it in the field, has it met your expectations, would you agree it is a good DSR-570 replacement? Are you usiing a Nano? Will it record to SxS and Nano? I am looking to buy one soon once the rush has settled down a bit. All coments welcome. Thanks

David Hart

I used a pre-production model for my review and I have one that I am taking to Arctic Norway next week to try to shoot the Northern Lights. So far it has exceeded my expectations. I like to record to a NanoFlash with it as at 100Mb/s the material is extremely robust through the edit process. However the 35Mb/s footage out of the camera is excellent. You can record to both SxS and the NanoFlash at the same time, you could even shoot HD in camera and SD on the NanoFlash.

Is it a DSR-570 replacement? I think so. It is a much more modern camera than the 570 with a very useful feature set (cache record etc). You can customize the pictures in more depth and it has that wonderful colour viewfinder. The only caveat is whether you can make the solid state workflow work for you. If you embrace it and take full advantage of it I doubt you'll ever want to go back to tape.

Nice one Alister, I was thinking along the lines of being paid to go along.

We all have our wishful thinking days :-)

Get some good shots.

Has anyone hooked some Zeiss DigiPrimes or DigiZooms on the PMW350 yet?
I'm guessing it will make superb video with them.
(Or an Angeneiux zoom....)

Good point Joe,

I am in the market for a wide 8-10mm 2/3" B4 prime for my PMW-350. Also I talked with someone on a used Angeneiux zoom but was pushed away by a few people who said they vary a lot in quality. And since I could not try it first I was not interested.

David the camera has a color temp button and a very easy White Balance with two presets. No color temp dial on the side.

That said I have never used a camera that is this easy to set white balance/color temp.

You can dial in color temp in the menu of any Picture Profile.

Thanks Paul, On the 570 you would go into the menu and highlight the colour temp and rotate the thumb wheel to change the numbers in 100 steps, i was hoping it would be possible on the 350. David
