Phil, what does that round tubular part at the back do, does it extend out?

a very small amount paul. I should have showed that on the video. It extends back or in so does the viewfinder which also moves side by side so it can fit even Mr Potato Head.

Nice work, Phil. Thanks for your efforts and a great overview. When will they announce the "Official Price"?

So now I'll probably take a loss along with lots of people who dump their 3 month old cameras to upgrade. I guess i'd feel better if I had made money off this thing already.

Lenny & Phil,

Let me know if you want to sell your EX1- I'll be purchasing one in the next week or two. I'll also be at NAB tomorrow:) Some of the new sony HDCAM recording devices make the EX1 a much more attractive cam for wedding and event video.

I'm ready to buy my EX1 this week unless something else is announced at NAB that knocks it out of the water. Will the other manufacturers start announcing tomorrow?

Usually the manufacturers have an event and then a press release follows. Here's a link for all the official press conferences...

On the Red forum they say the Scarlet will be revealed Monday as well. Has NAB ever been so exciting? Seriously I wonder.

Maybe Apple and Avid not turning up is the best thing that could have happened. Lets the other companies get a word in edge-wise.

Hmmm, the price of the EX3 will be $13,000?

Though I believe it is worth every penny, suddenly it isn't as enticing as I thought, with me thinking it would retail under $10k.

$13K USD.
If so, that changes things. You could buy two EX1 cameras for that price!

I just got to thinking and wish that a firmware update would allow the EX-1 to flip an image on the lcd. That feature would be simple and could be done in the menu.

Phil, how much did you explore the remote port on the back of the EX3? Is it the standard Sony remote connector? Does this mean I can plug in an RMB-750 and paint it?

That cant be right. That would be the UK price about 6500 I reckon but the US price is always less.
