$7,999. Cheaper than I thought.

When I see all the nice codec and framerate options the new Sony 4K Cameras have, I wonder if there are any news about 1080p50/60 in the PMW-300 yet?

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

Assuming it's a must. To have 1080i only with the lower end 4K Handycams beating out the 300 is not going to fly.

Once the 200 replacement with 3 chips and XAVC comes, I'll go for it.

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

Sorry to ask that question again, but can anybody at IBC find out if the PMW-300 can do 1080p50/60 XAVC ?

At the Sony UK site it's not in the specs. I need at least 1080p50 full time recording (with audio), if the PMW300 can't do that I have to look for a Z100, FS700r or other cameras.

Thank you !

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

Also a question, which type of card should be used to record 50mb/s and above? Considering the 1080/60p with XAVC, should I always use SxS Pro+ or any cheaper solutions?

Meanwhile, is a 128G SxS Pro+ worth it?

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

One of the big pushes coming from Sony right now is XQD support. The Z100 uses XQD, Sony are updating the F5 and F55 to support XQD and I would expect XQD support on the PMW-300 (it's already there on the PMW-200).

I think XQD is a very viable option and it's a lot cheaper than SxS, in the last few months the cost of XQD has dropped quite a bit. The faster XQD cards can support 4K XAVC at 600Mb/s and the slower speed cards should not have any problems with XAVC-S at 100Mb/s.

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

According to this video:


At 1:52 he said that we can use XQD card with adapter. I just checked the price on BH and found it's $300 for a piece of 64G, and $35 for an adapter. Much cheaper than I thought. And it's universal to most of other machines, like PXW-Z100. Nice.

Oh yes, another question for this is: is there any lens adapter that I can attach onto it to connect with Canon DSLR lens, like 70-200mm F2.8L IS II?

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

My understanding is that the PMW300 will use the same third party adapters as the EX3, which allow a variety of 35 mm lenses to be used. Look for them at the MTF Services website, or on B and H.

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

Looks like it might be this:

MTF Services Ltd Canon EF to Sony PMW-EX3 Adaptor MTCANEFEX3 B&H

Correct?

Being an interchangeable lens camera like the EX3 is a massive advantage for me when I shoot wildlife as I could use an adaptor and Nikon lenses and utilise the crop factor.
Hey Andy, I've been trying to find information on using other lenses, I have a decent amount of full frame Nikon lenses. Do you have any more information?

I'm very interested in this camera, since I want to replace my workhorse, Z1u.

I have two Nikon D800s that I'm phazing in. So I'm looking to get closer to them with something like the PMW-300.

Also, I'm assuming that since Sony owns Vegas, I won't have any hiccups there.

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

Today I just noticed that BH has changed their Date of Available from exact 'Oct 15 2013' to a fuzzy 'Oct 2013'...

Anyone have any ideas? Is this a problem of BH or Sony again?

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

I noticed that as well, but they also added all the infor and specs for the camera that wasnt there before,

maybe its a mistake or maybe they sold out of preorders or maybe Sony is running behind or maybe????

Re: Sony unveils the EX3 successor: PMW-300

...ok I have seen that they have just changed it back to 'Oct 15 2013' again. Guess they won't miss our expectations, especially those who have pre-ordered it already. Hmph.
