This is great stuff, thanks David. If you have (even more) time, it would be really interesting to see how 24p material on the Z7 compares.

I'd be interested to see how the 24p from the Z7 compares to 24F out of the A1 (or equivalent camera).

still satisfied with my decision

Even though I was on the fence months ago re:EX1 vs Z7, I must say that to date, I am very happy with the decision to purchase the EX1. The most important factor is image quality. The 1/2" sensors reallly make a difference and overall, the camera's performance is outstanding. Clearly, the tapeless work flow is terrific. So much so, that it seems strange to pack tapes to go along with our Z1U. The lens is super sharp and the control over depth of field is amazing. Just thought I'd post some feedback.
Best, Craig

How many cards do you have? B/c I would rather buy 100 tapes for $500 than put down $, $ & more $ for cards & drives. The workflow really only still works for limited usages.

Have you tried the Z7/S270 lens? I'm wondering how people like them in comparison to each other.


...if only the EX1 had interchangable glass & a tape drive, then it wouldn't be such a tough decision on which camera to buy when workflow & glass are in the control of the owner

Z7U Color Fidelity?

David, is the color fidelity of the EX1 significantly superior to the Z7U or the same? Your shirt appears brown in the zoomed EX1 and gray/black for the Z7U? No doubt the EX1 resolution is better, but the Z7U colors look muted in comparison. Thanks, Elliott
