Oooh Exciting! If any possibilities I would love to see the cine settings on something colorful that has also lots of bright lights and deep blacks. Im interested in how filmlike the camera can act.

Still waiting for delivery info from UK supplier.

Unboxing Photos

http://www.thevideodepartment.net/EX1/index.htm

I have to say having gone from a JVC DV500 that has a manual lens. The focus and zoom on this camera operate exactly as I'd expect them to. Very nice. Very solid.

I called my sales guy today to bug him about delivery and he told me they got a single camera yesterday that they were keeping for the showroom. But I ordered mine in Aug. so I was first one the list for the next shipment. So I went down to the showroom to see if I could play with their demo model and while I was there they got another shipment of 4 cameras. So I got to take mine home and when I went in I had no idea it would be there. Sweet. But the extra battery and card I ordered are still not there. Hopefully soon.

Sorry about the watermark that is my ebay ID

Hi Alessandro

I live in Switzerland, too (german part) and I'd be very interested in your first experiences with that camera - can you keep me informed?
Thank you
Edwin

I still need to work on work flow. some of the clips I could import into FCP others were a no-go. i had more luck with the software for the larger XDCAM's than the one that came with the camera.

Chris, I can't get this to play, using a PC. Black screen only.
Any chance of a actual mp4 file?

maybe I cut together several clips to show diffearnt things DOF, Overcrank, and motion.

So I'll try to export it again in a PC friendly format. Right now it is MOV, video only, 720p24.

FYI keying with this camera is awsome. :0

Same here! I tried Quicktime player, VLC, Windows media player, Zoom player and finally Power DVD. No luck! What format is this? It says .mov but the latest Quicktime version does not like the file.
Maybe it is using some kind of proprietary FCP codec?
