In stock at B&H

According to the B&H Website, the PMW-EX3's are in stock, so there must be enough to fulfill orders. Hopefully I'll have mine by the end of the week.

Shipped

Ordered EX3 from B&H Friday. Shipped today. Should have it by Friday. I do worry about the sxs card being included though as it doesn't state one's included on the B&H website. I don't see why not though.

Tapeworks Texas has been AWESOME to work with. I'd have still gotten my camera at about the same time if I'd left my order with B&H, but I'd have missed on on working with Scott Cantrell which was really a pleasure.

Even though it was practically a fire alarm for them, they got their stock checked in, paperwork done, and orders shipped out the same afternoon. Mine is due by Friday!

Jon,

The bag that Scott thought worked pretty well with the EX3 was, I believe, the TravelMate Handy 1 (hope the link works - not all showing up correctly):

(Scott, correct me if I'm wrong)

If you call Scott, I'm sure he'll hook you up with the right one. Now, he did say that it was not a perfect fit, but the the camera fit in the middle section and the viewfinder would ride on top of the side section, supported and protected, so it seemed to work pretty well.

There might be other options as well, but I wanted to try a back pack bag this time.

Christmas is in the air!

Sorry guys,

Looks like the truck leaving Tapeworks Texas had a bit of a mishap - there may be a delay.


(Aw, just kidding)

The stork has almost arrived!
Congratulations on your EX-3's arriving this week.

My EX-3 is almost 2 weeks old now and I am still adding bits to the package. New Miller sticks just arrived. Placing an order for the 60G drive this week and extra cards. This is such a great way to spend money...and the fastest!

Ted - I have my bag on it's way - I went with the Kata BP-502 Backpack. The one you mention looks good, but the laptop compartment sitting inside on top of the camera worries me. I also like the vivid yellow interiors of Kata bags - I often shoot in twilight on mountains, and seeing your gear easily is important. I will report on the compatibility with the EX-3 hopefully this week.

Jon,

I totally agree with you about the yellow interior. Also, I forgot to mention, as soon as Tapeworks Texas showed me that bag, I told that that I guess I wouldn't be putting a notebook computer in it. They agreed that a notebook on the camera/viewfinder was a no go. Sorry, should have mentioned it.

I looked at the Kata bag - looks nice, I'll be interested to learn how the camera fits. I love the wheels! I may end up upgrading if the EX3 fits well!

Two weeks old? Watch what you say, man! My nerves are shot and I'm completely on edge in anticipation of the new camera. If you say the wrong thing, I could go cameraman (like going postal, but viewers got a full recording of it).

Note from Tokyo ...

Looks like Tokyo pro shops get the EX3 sometime in mid-August according to the Sony rep at an EX3 demonstration in Akihabara last Saturday. He was surprised to learn that folks in the UK and America were getting theirs now!

Marius, it is the Sony PHU-60k. It is available now, priced at $995.
It gives you an approximate recording time of 200 minutes in 35 Mbps in High Quality setting. It takes up one slot - in the other slot, I will still use my 8G card for when I need to shoot slo and fast motion, which the 60G willnot handle.

I shoot in tough locations, and even though I have my laptop, its not feasible to drag this around for a full day of shooting. I usually unload my footage back at the hotel in the evening. Also I do not want to spend $3,000 on cards and worry about losing one!

Ted - my Kata backpack is arriving today, so I wll get back to you asap on the fit with my EX-3. I do not think it includes the trolley wheels - but I already have these.

Ted - I just posted about the back pack - one word - superb!

Getting mine on the 5th of August

I just placed an order for the EX3 on B&H over the phone today. They have 9 left at the moment and I will get it Tuesday. I just sold my two XH-A1's today to help pay for it. Pretty exciting stuff!!

After weeks of waiting, the last two excruciating weeks of wondering when will it finally arrive after stock ran out on the first batch, a post like this just isn't fair. :-)

(My wife laughed at ME when I read your post to her.)

Oh, well. Congrats on the new camera - hope you can handle waiting a few days for it.

Ahh that's a bummer Ted. Did you finally receive the camera? Yeah I am super stoked to get it next week. My only concern is the 25 minutes of HQ record time. I may need to buy another card soon. The 16GB card seems like the best deal at $849.00 US. That would give me 24 GB on the camera. I also need to buy the USB reader as I don't have a laptop with the express slot. Mo and Mo money!
