Re: Any pmw 320 owners here?

Hi Gary, thanks for the BBC report. Always interesting literature. Although I think the author of this report made a typo when he wrote this: "It records full 1920x1080 images with 4:2:2 colour sub-sampling at 35Mb/s (MPEG-2)". The 320 records in 4:2:0 unless one hooks a Nanoflash or Aja Ki Pro to the HD-SDI out. Then that external recorder can record in 4:2:2.
I'll have my 320 shortly, so I'll post here as soon as I have done some testing. Meanwhile I borrowed someone's PMW500 and that will keep me busy for a while... Just hope I don't get too fond of it, because I cannot afford this beautiful beast.

Yes Luc I spotted that too and it is 4.2.0 as far I as know.

I had a look at the 500 at BVE this year and I feel that some of the switches on the pro sony camera's are getting rather small and prosumer for my liking.

P2 convert here and may never buy sony again as the 371 and the 3700 or 3100 do most of what I need and they are all BBC approved.

You have a point about the switches, Gary. Much smaller than on the optical disk camera's and the general feel is also less sturdy.

Re: Any pmw 320 owners here?

I've got a PMW 320K; it's a terrific camera and shoots very crisp pictures. It performed faultlessly for three weeks in the south of France (just finished our drama shoot) under harsh conditions. Very user friendly and nicely designed with a good HD stock lens (with manual and auto capability); accepts class 10 SD cards which we used, although over and under cranking with these is not recommended. The attached picture shows the camera on location at Saut du Moine during the shooting of "The Scenic Route" ghost film a week or so ago. I give the camera 10/10.

Cheers
Simon
