Get this. If you were an early adopter, like me, and completed your purchase before December 1, 2007, Sony is NOT going to honor the free card promotion. This is a quote from an email I received from them this morning:

"Thank you for your inquiry regarding the Sony fulfillment.
Unfortunately the product must be purchased in time frame specified on offer (12/1/2007 - 3/31/2008). You would not be eligible for this promotion if it was purchased outside this time frame"

I called the number on the rebate form and spoke with a representative and his supervisor explaining the situation, but they would not relent. I am supposed to get a call from the next managerial level within 2 days.

This is unacceptable.

The camera may be good but this is stupid...
Can't complain too much it is free... but you'd expect more from Sony...

Aldo,

Have you checked for the vignetting problem?

Hmm..
I'll be calling my dealer on this one.
They will have to post date my receipt by 10 days.
I was told about this extra card upon ordering the camera.

I find this VERY strange.

I am not experiencing any vignetting problems, apparantly all Canadian cameras are being checked for this before they are shipped to customers. I checked right away and it looks good. You also get a battery charger in the box which was a nice unexpected surprise. I bought an additional sony battery ( the big one ). The LCD just blows me away with its definition and is so ACCURATE you can use for focus and color decisions. The lens is also sweet for manual focus and a real nice iris ring. I am so comfortable with this camera because it so closely resembles a larger betacam i used for years as far as manual control goes.

That would be horrible! Keep us posted on the progress! I bought mine on Nov. 26th and my rep promised me a free 8 gig card. I am sure he would of told me to wait if it meant not getting it.

Me too. I just got off the phone with the top tier supervisor and they are sticking to their guns. No exceptions. The number is 866-881-1114.

I think calling the dealer is the best option at this point.

Lol! First, you get a camera that wouldn't pass QC, then they won't honor a promotion that's made even simpler if you don't buy it in the US... Gotta love being a Sony professional video product early adopter - Now, you know they don't treat their consumer customers this way... :-)

Hey Bill
This might be resolved...
I purchased my camera from B&H
I just got off the phone with B&H Sony Rep... I explained everthing to him and I explained the concerns of the dvinfo community...
He was very upset and stated that he would straighten it out... he called me back 10 min later left a voicemail and sent an email here is a copy of the email:

Hi Bob,

I just confirm with our marketing department that all purchases of PMW-EX1 until March 31, 2008 will be eligible for the second SxS card after completing the online survey, regardless if it was purchased in Oct or November. My marketing department is on the phone right now getting this fixed.

Thanks,
Jim

Also on the voicemail he states not to worry and to extend this to the dvinfo
community...

So this should work out ok.... I'm saving all communication...
Bob

My dealer said something similar, and is expects an official correspondence from Sony later today.

He said that the rebate people were probably not aware that some cameras were delivered before 1-Dec and are trained to follow the letter of the law when dealing with promotions.
