My former camera was a handcrank Bolex that weighed exactly the same amount as my EX1+Letus Extreme combo weighs now so nothing changed for me in that department :) I would still buy the EX1.

Which shoulder mount do you recommend? I'm hoping to continue using the same DVTec DVMultiRig that I use for my Z1U.

Have you been able to get the mic holder replaced/fixed?

I don't fancy the "aluminium strip" fix posted elsewhere because I'm lethal with any kind of DIY, but I tried ringing Premiere Support this afternoon just to see if I could take it somewhere to get it fixed and they had absolutely zero interest in knowing about the problem or suggesting somewhere I could take the camera to fix it (and of course the original dealer just says "You need to call Premier Support" whenever any problem is mentioned).

Ian,

Just been too busy to worry about that.

I've got 8 days left of my wedding season (4 weddings) and finished all corporate shooting for awhile, so after I get a studio wall knocked out this week to set up a green screen area!!!!!!, and having a run at editing 30 weddings and 17 X 10 minute 2 camera cooking segments for my corporate client I'll see if I can get my mic holder/paint peeling fixed.

In the meantime the rock promotion footage I shot last night looks pretty good, although I must admit the picture profiles can't handle "stage" lighting flashing red LED's into performer's faces from 6 feet away!!!

Fast learning curve there!

Cheers Vaughan
