New promo video XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422
 
Just found this new promo video for XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422 on Sony's US website.

XDCAM EX + XDCAM HD422

Enjoy it! :-)

Hey thnx Ivan for the link. It had specific specs I desired to know about the ex cam. 3 1/2" ccds 1080i 60i 24p and my favorite 720 60p. Should be a lot of fun getting my hands on one when released.

Thanks Ivan :D

I was really hoping it would record 4:2:2 to SxS. Oh well. I thought it was too good to be true.

Cool! CCD's instead of CMOS! I'm happy!

Cheers Vaughan

The video said that the XDCAM EX has 3 1/2" sensors. It did not say 3 CCDs. Sony has not described the sensors yet (although they made reference to the sensors having some revolutionary new technology in a previous video)

You're right Tom.

My apologies to all....just shows you what excitement does!!

The fact that they are talking about low power sensors probably leans towards CMOS chips, sad!

Funny that they're not telling us one way or another!

I'll just have to tell all the photgraphers to stop using their flashes all day at my weddings if it's true, plays havoc with my slow motion.

Cheers Vaughan

Its really not THAT bad... well at 35mbps its barely noticable.. maybe 6 frames are affected if that... and its not like its gettin totally nuked..unlike HDV which pukes...

ive got high hopes for the EX.. heres hoping they dont shoot themselves...

Piotr Wozniacki July 20th, 2007 12:48 AM

Exciting stuff! I wonder why Sony wouldn't reveal what the imagers are going to be... I'd guess it's CCD, and they don't want to admit retreating from CMOS for as long as possible...

Vaughan Wood July 20th, 2007 01:16 AM

Wishful thinking I think Piotr!!!!

Well, actually I have nothing against the current CMOS imagers as used in the V1 (I'm using one and am very satisfied with it); just think that with larger chips, the CCD technology is more matured.

the link not working :-/

Hi Robert,

Go to this page: http://bssc.sel.sony.com/Broadcastan...am_index.shtml

And click on the XDCAM EX logo on the left under the picture.

Personally, I hope they use the same cmos technology on my HV20, that way I won't be so tempted to buy one. I know they have ways of working around the rolling shutter issue (RED, does I hope) with the higher end cams. But if this camera's chips are CMOS based I would not preorder one, but wait and see what the fine people of this board would say about the camera first.

Mike Williams July 20th, 2007 08:23 AM

EX Series!
 
I heard EX SERIES a few times. Is this going to be it's own sub class of cam?
