Hey look everyone, Bob baited me to post a video. :)

Thanks Bob, ha ha. (I really wish we had a choice on whether the video would embed or just be a link)

Thanks for sharing, that Erik -- back in high school, I
was a projectionist at our local drive-in. Good times...

The reason why we embed video clips here is to keep
eyeballs on DV Info Net. Our goal is to retain traffic
instead of sending it elsewhere. Hope this helps,

No problem Chris, just felt like a heel posting a big embed. We go to that Drive In almost every weekend. Picture is terrible but it's just more fun that a regular movie.

Back to the NXcam folks, nothing to see here. :)

Erik,
Drive-ins are the best. Too bad they are hard to find now. It seems they are making a comeback where there is cheap land and enough space. Great memories.

To keep this semi on topic, if this NXcam really is a leap beyond the EX3 in low light. I will be making another video of that Drive In. I wanna capture the feel of being there as good as I can, without making the owner mad of course. :)

Also, I can't imagine how this thing will be held!! It's not designed for handheld that's for sure. Even with the grip if it will be awkward to say the least! Just make a damn camera Sony.. :)

Dear Friends,

I recommend that we do not judge this camera by this early mockup.

It will certainly change before it is ready for sale.

Here are some pictures of the prototype camera with a Zeiss zoom beside it.

I like the idea of a modular camera. Perhaps the hand grip is reversible so that it sticks forwards or backwards (there's no rocker to stop you from doing this). Add a shoulder mount and viewfinder and you have a shoulder mount camera with the hand grip out beside the lens. Strip it down and you have a great camera for jibs or stedicams. With a short lens, twist the handgrip backwards and just use the LCD and you have a handycam. If as rumoured and certainly not denied by Sony this is using the same sensor as the F3 it should be rather good.

Al in Philip Bloom's video the Sony rep said straight up, it was the same sensor. Are you saying he could be wrong?

A few days ago I asked the US Marketing Manager for Production at Sony Electronics if the NXCAM would have the same sensor as the F3, and he said that at this time he couldn't confirm that it did.

Well as long as it follows the same design, the large format low resolution chip. Although if they copied that much why not just use the same chip?

If it uses a large pixel count, small photosite chip, this means nothing to me and will just be another camera.

EDIT, I watched the Bloom video again. Not only does the Rep say it's the same as the F3 he answers follow up questions. Bloom was asking about 24p in Europe and the Rep said, well that is what the F3 is for. Implying directly it was function and not so much the sensor that separated the two.

At least that how I read it.

Will this camera have in-camera IS?

Hello,

I know we are still in the very early stages of the NXCAM, but do you think it will have in-camera IS to make the best use of the Alpha lenses?

Thanks.

Someone over at another forum said he was at an event and the Sony Rep said it was a "similar" S35 sensor to the F3.. The word similar in spooky quotes. Hopefully similar means "exactly the same".
