Paul,

Aren't they after 4.2.2 recording as well?
Solved a while ago with the nanoFlash recorder.

Good luck with all of your wish list items.

Cheers

Hi David,

You're absolutely right. I'll whack-it on the list.

4.2.2 please.

... and USB 3 (with "Light Peak")

Thanks

A Polish Sony reseller told me a few days ago about the changes. It will be almost the same EX1, with a smaller LCD (2,5"), and there will be an HDMI output in place of the Sony's A/V output. He told me that the new EX1 is going to replace the old one (just like it was with the pd170 and pd150), and that the price is going to be the same.

I don't know if any of this is truth, i just repeat what iv'e been told.

That doesn't sound BIG. It sounds like a little tinkering.

Could well be the EX5 shoulder mount version replacing the PDW-700?

I have the privilege of advanced knowledge of what's coming. I can't say anything of course due to NDA, but it will surprise a lot of people.

Just keep an ear to the ground on the 20th.

The Softwares Download link of Sony XDCAM EX in Canada list all Softwares as 0 or No Softwares Available for Download.

SONY XDCAM EX

Maybe we will get Updated XDCAM EX Line-Up with Softwares Updated for Snow Leopard.

You just have to click on any option to download a specific software and you reach a page with the number 0.

Let hope Sony surprize us with both products updates and softwares updated too for Snow Leopard.

You just gave the game away, now we know it is a set of stereo speakers hidden in the users shoes. Very clever :-)

Well hold on now, Vince. I could have just as easily been referring to a micro-miniature type of EX that sits on the ground and gives a "worm's eye view" shot. Keeping your ear to the ground would be the only way to look in the viewfinder. (hehe)

But you'll just have to wait and see on the 20th!

2/3" chips
1080p60
Not $30,000, more like $10-$12,000 body only

Would be "big"

Does Sony give us a discount if we get close?

Other things not mentioned:
3 seconds or more record cache
90 or 120FPS overcrank (so SDHC would go to 60fps and SxS would be up to 120fps).
Record to either or both SxS/SDHC and XDCAM disc.

I think whatever it is it'll be shoulder mount and somewhere in the price range of the F335 and F355 because these is where the EX is eating their own market internally. Sony needs a compelling reason for people to spend more. Keep in mind they may be announcing more than one camera.

It could be EX5 and EX7 to "replace" F335 and F355.

I would be happy with a BIG price reduction in cost of SxS cards.

no need for big or shoulder mount, no sports shooter here.
the form factor and ergo of the EX1 is already ideal for us.
for nearly 2 years...

1080/60p and maybe a greater and faster zoom would be fabulous.
f1.4 or f1.6 down to f2.0 on the long end.....
interchangeable lens just gets us cleaning the sensor more than we like.
still, love to mount a nikkor 85 1.4 or zeiss manual 1.4 of the same on the EX2 or EX4

hopeful from queens.....

My guess

I think a more realistic guess would be an EX5. A shoulder mounted EX with 1/2" chips and interchangeable lenses, and otherwise not much different from the 1 or 3. I'm guessing it will cost at least $10,000, but probably more. Unlike the 3XXs, it won't do DV-CAM which will be annoying for those of us who still have SD customers. It won't do XD disks either.

Read CCDs would be nice though.

Well that eliminates EVERYTHING we've been speculating because none of it would surprise me (or us) since this is what we expect might happen.

Now I have to take a different tact. What would surprise us?

Sony buying JVC

Discontinuing the entire EX line and instead making the equivalent to EX1 and EX3 with XDCAM disc which would end this whole SxS/SDHC stuff and put Sony in control of the media.

Discontinuing the aforementioned and replacing it with a DSLR still camera with video recording that's better than the 5D.

Making all the above tape based cameras by introducing the XDCAM equivalent of BetaSX tape.

A shoulder mount EX camera with some of the previously mentioned features does not surprise me (us?) at all so it has to be "something completely different."
