This is not wobble.

I'd say no. The person capturing the footage at the show did not spend the time to set the camera up under those lighting conditions.

The flicker in the file 058B0102_01.mp4 looks like 50hz fluorescent lighting "beating against" the 24fps or 30fps photography.

That could be eliminated with a 1/25, 1/50 or 1/100 sec shutter, assuming those settings are available at 24p.

On another note, that footage, in all of its modesty, looks amazing! Really looking forward to shooting with this camera.

A note on the clip browser software itself: it's so primitive, that the viewer window can only adopt 2 sizes: defalt (small), or full screen (controls not visible). Frankly, this is the first time I cannot resize a window of a Windows program...

Dear Sony, if you are reading this - please fix it asap!

The PDZ-1 software on the PC has always been very agricultural in its design to put it nicely.

It was obviously made by programmers for programmers!

Frankly, I find the Clip Browser Software poorly designed.
It could look and function Vegas-like.

So I'm guessing that may end up being a slow process. On import you'll have to choose a DNXHD codec like DNXHD 145 or DNXHD 110. Hopefully Avid will quickly adopt a new long GOP 35mbit setting like they did for HDV "smart splicing" in a "near future" release.

Actually David,

AVID products accross the board (this includes XPress Pro) have been supporting the MXF 35mbps codec since version X.5.5. Time to upgrade...

Thierry.

Thank you Thierry... very good news for any of us who (like me) use Avid Xpress Pro.
Cheers,

Thanks Thierry,

You right about the upgrade but it wasn't the version but the codecs package,
I actually have 5.5 but for some reason I had older v. 1.20 Avid Codecs LE/PE. That's why i was seeing the file but getting green screen playback.
Downladed and upgraded 1.60 Avid Codecs package and both the 1080/24 HQ and SP work fine. Sorry about the false alarm, my oversight.

So Avid Works Fine... and it is a good workflow. Just make sure you have the most updated codecs. Latest version dated in October 2007.

Cheers

XDcam transfer system requirements

I've got a macbook pro 2Ghz intel core duo, with FCP 5.1.4. (FCP 6 soon)
In Xdcam transfer user guide chapter 2 it states that the
system requirement is 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo.
Does this mean I have to buy a new macbook pro, just to go from a
intel core to a intel core 2?
Is there any other way of getting the media onto my laptop?

Further on this: have you noticed that when idling (clip loaded in the viewer, but not playing back), the browser uses a lot of CPU resources! Gosh, it's up to 20% of my Core 2 Quadro!

Well Piotr, it is not a 56kB Excel file this time what your PC is dealing with...:)

If this is true it is sensational news! But are you absolutely sure about this? The XDCAM HD-format is NOT identical with the EX-format. The main difference being the resolution of 1920x1080. I have been told by Avid that only the 25 Mbit-resolution works with Media Composer and Xpress Pro. Xpress Pro does not support any version of the 35 Mbit-resolution and Media Composer needs a still not available update to be able to import 35 Mbit XDCAM EX-media.
If you have been able to do this please tell me about the details!
