I'll pitch in with my guesstimate that it will be likely 6500-6999USD at somewhere like the aforementioned NYC store.

With the included 8Gig card plus a 16Gig card, I've been told by my local dealer to budget around $8,300.00. I was also told that I probably could place an order in mid to late November and take delivery in early to mid December or certainly by the end of the year. I might wait until after the first of the year to see what bugs need to be worked if any. But unless there is some overarching bug problems with the platform, I'm saving up to buy one.

Cheers.

oooohhhhmmmm

The BH guy was in the ball park with 6-7. I'm thinking the 8 gig card might do the trick if there isn't a quick unload alternative on location.

That 1K difference will hurt due to the fact that we will need to buy all new batteries and flash cards. I hope they realize that they will be selling a bnch of other stuff to us and "kind of" set the hook with a lower price on the unit.

ooohhhmmmm.

I talked to several Sony reps at a Pro Show near Wash DC today.

One of them told me that we would be "very happy" with the price. This was after I asked her about the $8K list price.

They are saying mid November to ship, but the major networks will get the first batch of cameras. I said something about CNN getting the first 100 and she laughed and said "it's a lot more than that".

Also the $3K or so priced portable reader deck will have a firmware upgrade in a few months that will make it about to record to XDCAM HD discs.

Good discussions regarding workflow and the like.

At $6449 I think they wont be able to keep up with production demands.

It also seems Sony have their sites firmly planted on taking some of the HVX market share.

Not bad though.
So the EX will sell for $7K,
Sounds better than the original $8K, $6.5K would of been nice.

Well, this ends that mystery.

They keep changing their price on me.... :-(

Although, they did at an earlier date have an even higher price on it....so it COULD change again.....

Everyone: I understand how enthusiastic you are about getting a great deal on an EX. But please don't recommend non-sponsor vendors at DVinfo. Please read Chris' post here for further clarification of our policy: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....79&postcount=7

Thanks for your understanding.

That'll be $500 worth of bear claws, Paul.

So the $6999 price includes 1 8gig card, but Abel has a note about getting a second free card:

Quote:
One 8GB SxS ExpressCard media is included in the PMW-EX1 carton box at no additional charge from Sony. A second 8GB SxS ExpressCard media will be sent, at no additional charge, to end users who purchase PMW-EX1 from an authorized XL Reseller, complete an online survey, opt in and submit other requested information at www.sony.com/xdcamex/customer. Offer good until March 26, 2008.
The link goes to a 404 though, so no details... but it sounds like it'll be a rebate type of thing - buy the camera, take the survey, agree to be spammed by sony, and they send you the card. Reminds me of the 5 free HDV Master tapes offer they were running a while ago - anyone participate in that? How long did it take to get the tapes?

It seems like with a lot of these rebate-type things the turnaround can be months, so it might be a while before we get the second card... for most of the shooting I do I think 2 8gig cards would suffice, but one would probably be a stretch.

EDIT: also - anyone know what an "authorized XL Reseller" is? Does that just mean an authorized reseller, or is "XL" some special designation that not all resellers qualify for?

arrgghhhh

Knew someone would call me on that, eating humble (doughnut) pie.

But heck, that's a nice thing to be wrong about :)

I got my order-in at 9.22am, my contact tells me I am in the top 15, off to Mnt. Everest on 11/17 - hoping I will have it in my hands by then.

Seen some TBA listings for batteries, no mention of cards or the WA adapter yet.
