Paul,

The Sony PHU60K 60GB Hard Disk Drive unit is anticipated to be released July/August timeframe. It will attach to the PMWEX1/EX3 via the SxS card slot. Sony has not released pricing on this item yet, but I will keep you informed on any information that becomes available.

Glen, no, Tapeworks only sells new A-Stock (or B-Stock if available from the mfg) product. We do occasionally have deals on demo'd gear. But we do not take trade in's or purchase used gear. This way all product we sell have full mfg warranty.

Have you tried posting your used gear on the Private Classifieds forum here in DVinfo?

Hi Paul-
Check out the nanoFlash from Convergent Design. Look for us under the Tapeless Recording Solutions elsewhere in this forum.

Sony don't officially support any 4:2:2 add ons but the convergent design box will record in xdcam hd 50mbs 422 but you will need to press record on it everytime you roll and over and undercrank won't work

With over/under cranking not working on the Flash XDR/nano boxes I agree, but my understanding is they can be activated by the TC, embedded in the EX1's SDI output.

be good if it could. But I spoke to Sony guy about it and he said it couldn't

The other major downside is you lose one of the major benefits of tapeless is you cannot view back your rushes through the lcd screen without plugging an sdi monitor into the box

This is rather strange - I was sure I've read somewhere that it could be triggered via SDI connection. Anyway, I've had another look at the pdf brochure of the Flash XDR -

http://www.convergent-design.com/dow...20Brochure.pdf

- and it says: "Programmable triggers: GPIO, Incrementing Time-Code, etc." I thought that thru SDI, the EX1 or EX3 can detect Incrementing Time-Code and hence trigger the recording on the unit. Or am I missing something?

I guess you're not missing anything, Brian. With all due respect to Phil (and his Sony sources), once the TC begins incrementing (in the right mode, of course), the Flash will start recording.

Sony must not be very pleased with the fact that - even using Sony's own codec which probably contributes to the Converget Design prices - somebody else is going to upgrade their (Sony's) product capabilities so that it belongs to the market niche they wanted to reserve for their (Sony's) most expensive products.

Is anyone else finding this EX3 astonishingly more affordable than previously thought?!

This is the second place with a sub-$9,000 price tag for this camera, much better than I thought it would be listed for...

This really makes me rethink my purchasing decisions over the next year...
