Re: PIX E5 in my hands!

Paul,....is there any plan to add fast forward and rewind into playback? Being able to "scrub" a cursor back and forth on a video file would also be very helpful.

Can you give and clues as to what is coming in future firmware for the PIX E5?

Loving this recorder/monitor today!

Oh,..for the battery questions. I tested recordings using just ONE, single Sony NP-F770:

UHD ProRes = 59 minutes.

1080 Prores via SDI = 110 minutes

It is a Eurozone tariff issue. Video cameras pay a higher level of tax than still cameras. The current Eurozone definition of a videocamera for tax purposes is a camera that can record continuously for 30 minutes or more. So there are a large number of cameras that stop recording a clip when the current clip length hits somewhere in the range of 29 minutes 0 seconds to 29 minutes 59 seconds.

The bulk of video shooting I do is recording events, generally 45 minutes to 2+ hours. There are any number of cameras that would be nice to use as fixed cameras, but the clip length limit is a no-go for me. And even with an external recorder, you need to be sure the camera won't go to sleep/auto-turn off as it could decide it isn't doing anything.
