Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

it says it has a new sensor, but in what way. I ended up not getting the EA50 and now I only rent one when I need it, but how come this isn't in any of the news sites?

Hi Chris

Nope same sensor and same body ..just a different lens. It also has the new firmware so you can set the top record button to record to the FMU and the normal one to record to the card.

Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

Just wondering how good is that new kit lens? Is it better than the one we got with our EA50?

Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

Hey Aaron

I guess if you use big zoom is will be good and need autofocus at 105mm. Bear in mind at the wide end it's only F4 not F3.5 like the 18-200 ... I still like to have F2.8 at 70mm for weddings! so the 24-70 or 28-75 manual is a better bet for me for ceremonies and speeches where we have low light.

The Church I did on the weekend would have been great as it was very well lit ..On the Tamron F2.8 I was running at 1/50th and only 3db gain at 50mm but most Churches are pretty dark !

I guess the major attraction for guys like Randy would be autofocus and autoiris but I still prefer a lens with F2.8 throughout the range and it a lot cheaper too. The new Sony is still quite pricey!!

Chris
but the description on B&H says very clearly...

"It inherits the same versatile semi-shoulder mount design from its predecessor--the NEX-EA50UH--but adds an updated Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and replaces the 18-200mm E-mount lens with an 18-105mm f/4 constant aperture Servo Zoom G lens."

so something is up here.

Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

Hi Chris

Yep you could be quite correct there! It does say that the new sensor is optimised for HD video so you get less artifacts ... I wonder if you get less moire? I doubt it! It would have been nice if they said the new sensor has an anti-aliasing filter on the sensor ... I really don't like the "open to the elements" sensor. Mine got debris inside at the weekend when I had to change lenses outdoors so I have to be really careful.

Probably the best place to see footage would be on my youtube page ... anything after December 2012 would have been shot on the EA-50's

I wonder if they will have the new EA-50 in a body only version?? That would be good as it's a pain having to sell the stock lenses as I don't use them

Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

You Tube doesn't do the format any justice as I upload in SD ... 640x360 so the quality drops off big time but brides still are happy with them. I would rather a bride watched a clip that played quickly with no buffering than have an HD clip that stops halfway and buffers or takes ages to start!

Re: The New NEX-EA50M NXCAM

What I don't get is the sensor change. I have always had at least two and usually three cameras of the exact same model, primarily for image matching. What did they do here? Will the new model not match? I am NOT a fix it in post guy. I have not picked up a second EA50 yet but it is still up for consideration. But not now if it has a completely different sensor in it.
