US pricing info...

For those interested, it appears that the US price for the Sony XDcam EX may be close to what many of us are looking for....camera WITH 2 8 gig cards for 'under $7000). See here:
http://www.sportsvideo.org/portal/ar...cle_7288.shtml

So my source that told me it would be $6000....well at least he got the first number right.

Also kind of funny that many over at DVX user are claiming that it will be close to 10 grand US. They are different market's people. You can't make a direct conversion to get the US price. (Of course that is a Panasonic site so it doesn't surprise me a ton.)

Beautiful!!! It looks like I'll be a proud owner of a ex come December (^_^) if the 16gb SxS card is priced within guesstimates many here have made about the price.

Thanks Gabe for the link

Seems like a word-wide set price by Sony - the same in EU (so far).
Another thread mention prices about 700 USD for 16GB.

As good as these prices are for what it is, it is going to have to wait for me :-( $6K I would have pushed to, but US$7.5K is going to be near AUS$11K, out of my league.

About the only consideration is leasing, and that never looks good to me when you work out what it really costs...

I noticed on the Sony Europe site, they have a no interest for 24 months deal going for and XDCAM units purchased.

This runs out at the end of Sept. Lets hope they offer a similar deal to get the EX in the hands of a lot of people.

My first camera (VX-2000) was purchased with a 12 month no-interest plan from Sony.

It really made the decision for me.

I think that Sony priced it too high, but perhaps they did a survey what the customers are willing to pay for it. Let's see in 6 months. I guess a drop of 1500+ USD within a year.

Cash Flow

A 12 month no interest deal is perfect for cash flow. Granted it is somewhat of a gamble to bank on future jobs but if your business is somewhat steady year to year then something like that makes sense.

Discipline you must have to pay the loan in 12 months :)

Actually, now that I remember, the VX-2000 deal was 12 months no interest, no payments.

So I had a year to pay off the camera without any payments in between.

The Sony - Leasing options are realy good. You can choose 12 or 24 month.
And, 0%!! So, you pay the price of the cam, an about 200 fees..

The V1u's price in the US dropped about $1000 to $1500 within a few months of its debut. I wouldn't be surprised if the EX drops a bit as time goes on, like you guys are saying. History is always an indicator. But as always, if you need a camera now, grab it. If they offer those great financing deals, jump on it!

How has the Z1 priced moved over time? It didn't drop very fast and the RRP is still quite close to the initial release isn't it? It started at US$6K I think and is now only $4.7K (not even $1500 drop in how many years?

Hi Guy.
IN US$, its Z1 is available ofr US$4,099 at well.known stores in NYC (after $300rebate).
Not sure what the initial Z1 price was back in Jan2005 when it was introduced, but if it was US$6000 like you say, thats a US$1900 reduction.
