PMW 200 backordered

Are they just selling like hotcakes or are they fixing the LCD green cast?

Re: PMW 200 backordered

I highly doubt they're fixing the green cast. I presume it's a hardware issue as I've seen a NEW EX3 with the same display and I've seen one that has been replaced on an older EX1 some time before pmw200 was even announced.

I was stunned how soft and green it was compared to the one on my EX1.

Good job Sony, you've done it again :(

Re: PMW 200 backordered

I have two PMW 200's and do not have any color cast problem.

My local camera dealer has one left in stock if you are interested.

Re: PMW 200 backordered

Bill, did you compare them side by side to an older EX1, EX1r or EX3?

Note that I say older, as the newer ones had the same display as the PMW200.

No, I did not compare them side by side.

Put them side by side if you ever get a chance, then you'll see why some of us are slightly pissed off.

Re: PMW 200 backordered

B&H still has PMW-200s. At least they have 'one' and it's being sent to me as we speak. I'm not surprised to hear Sony has a 'hot seller' on their hands.

Regards,

J.

Re: PMW 200 backordered

I am quite happy with my 200's. Except for that back focus issue that was resolved with a firmware upgrade.

Re: PMW 200 backordered

Well, B&H does show "Back Ordered" status, with expected delivery of April 30, 2013. I did confirm with B&H that mine is en route, with SDD: 4/10/13.

Looking forward to receiving the camera.
