sony PMW-EX1R/2

on B&H website, the SONY EX1R is shown as the "SONY EX1R /2" - any idea what the "/2" indicates? couldn't find anything on the SONY site...

I thought snide remarks, sarcasm, and name-calling were frowned upon.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

Hi Vincent,

At first I was a bit shocked at David's response but then I found myself wondering whether he was actually making a comment about your signature line? If you read his response in that light, what he said becomes quite innocuous and is somewhat relevant to your sig.

Just a thought.

Thanks Russell,

I haven't taken offence to David's remarks, I am sure he is a very nice guy deep down.

Maybe I was being just a bit too flippant with my first post.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

Interesting here. I looked the EX1R up on the B&H website and it has 2 listings:

1) PMW-EX1R XDCAM EX Full HD Camcorder (without SxS Card) mfr# EX1R/2 price $6299 in stock

and

2) PMW-EX1R XDCAM EX Full HD Camcorder mfr# EX1R price $6299 discontinued

mmmm. Does that mean that Sony have slipped a price increase in by losing the SxS card. That crept in when we weren't watching.

Steve

p.s. Vincent, I think it's a first world thing called irony.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

Hey guys,

Sony included a 16GB SxS card with the PMW-EX1R/1 until they ran out of them, which happened recently.

Same goes with the PMW-EX3, now it has a /3, No SxS card included, since they ran out of them.

I also think SBP-16 are discontinued. My reps can't get them anymore.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

So in effect, Sony have increased the price of the EX1R by keeping the price the same and giving a bit less.

Not what I would have expected so late in the life of the product with no obvious successor to take on the competition.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

I just got back from NAB. My sony reps and media/ Tape / Distributors are all still in Vegas, can't reach them to confirm again. We couldn't order them since 3 weeks ago.

I think* they are discontinued. You might still find them from retailers and EBAY.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2/media prices

with regards to the sxs cards, prices have gone up because of demand. the 32gb cards were 560.00 , now 750.00. talked to 3 sony reps, one in media. all said they havent raised their prices.
BH and a few others i talked to said they raised their prices because sony did. /whatever. theyre taking full advantage of this mess in japan and trying to blame sony, which didnt raise theirs.
call it what it is, gouging at our expense.
i went with 2 hoodman adaptors and 32 gb sd cards for less than 1 sony sxs 32gb and have had zero problems.

Re: sony PMW-EX1R/2

Its possible that Sony USA or their distributors have either increased the prices they charge retailers, or more likely they have withdrawn any current discount promotions. It means the same to the end buyer, i.e. price rise.

There may be no actual shortage in terms of supply yet, but rumours and panic buying don't help anybody, and can cause local shortages that feed price inflation.
