I'm Confused

The link describes sensitivity of F12 and S/N 59db, yet if you open the .pdf brochure, that's only for the PMW350, the PMW320 retains the F10 and S/N 54db of the EX3.

...and moreover, the specs mention for both cams, image stabilizer, on/off selectable shift lens. My PMW350K doesn't have this. So is this a misprint, or has the feature been added?

I don't know the difference between the K and L 350s but this one with no lens is nearly 18 grand.

I still say 15k for body only is a good guess.

The kit lens is cheap BUT pretty darned good for ESSENTIALLY a "free" lens... Saw the demo at a local Video retailer in December and was reasonably impressed. Will it kill a $40k lens? No but for $1500... it's a GREAT start to get people into a 2/3" world.

looks like this camera is very similar in sensitivity and low-light capabilities to the ex3. And if Barry Greene's tests are accurate, with the new Panasonic HPX370 tieing or even outperforming the EX3 in low-light, then things are going to be very interesting.

For me, having the awesome Panasonic color matrix feel (which feel more organic to me) and having 4:2:2 10-bit colorspace in the codec for a camera that will probably cost less than the PMW-320 and you have Panasonic with the better camera.

Things have just again gotten very interesting.

Without making a point of one over the other, I must say that one thing I've noticed in the past 5 or so years is that the client/end user support for Panasonic or Sony SEEMS to be heavily regional (excluding those of you/us who live in a MAJOR metropolitan area). In my former home "on the Prairies", Sony buy-in was virtually ubiquitous whereas now that I live in a Film-centric city, the Panasonic crowd is certainly numerous (at least compared to what I'm "used" to).

Read the original post carefully, you will see the prices posted. One config with a lens is MSRP at $14800. Sony is ALWAYS less in cost when the camera comes to market.

Something else to note on a POSITIVE side, the camera will have the "paint" controls of the PMW-350 as opposed to the EX1r/3. It will have the ins & outs of the 350, the switches of the 350 and the viewfinder of the 350. I think the audio is 48K 24 bit as well, not 16 bit but someone might want to verify that.

Way too much bellyaching.

Yes I see that now Shaun. Apologies to the bellyachers.

I see you have noticed the Panasonic juggernaut in Vancouver. I lived in Winnipeg as well. Sony had things wrapped up pretty tight there. I say "No" to the P2 card tax.

So body only should be about 10k. That's a lot of camera. Better than I thought but my EX3 still looks like the right choice for me.

I've been told it's got an all new sensor block, not EX3 sensors, and has better than EX3 image quality. HDMI or SDi not both at same time, same as 350. I hope to play with one later today. PMW-320 has a blue hand grip. Unless the lenses have been changed there is no image stabilisation, don't know why it implies that there is in the PDF.
