Thanks, that made my day!

Pulldown is used even direct to flash. The data on the CF card is exactly what you would get on a HDV tape.

Sorry to burst that bubble.

Be nice to have cake and eat it though.......
Its all about the workflow... and the "known quantity" of tape.

Almost everybody excited about this camera and the 270 talked gleefully about how they need tape, and the Sony reps relied with something along the lines of, "you are the type of person we made this camera for."

I heard a lot of talk about handing the client a tape at the end of the shoot too.

Nobody I talked to there even noticed the image issues I noted- and when I pointed them out none of these excited folk cared one whit. "Its good enough for me," was a common refrain.

Well, having seen them side by side I can safely say that the EX1 is a better match for the F900R than the 355, and a better image overall- despite better glass on the 355.

The EX1 does have a rolling shutter... but this isn't at all like the rolling shutters you are used to.

In order to see the slightest skewing I had to whip the camera around so fast I hurt my wrist. I won't be doing that very often.

Not to mention that the whole image was a blur at those pan speeds.
