NEW High End Cheapest Camcorder from China
The new DataCam E2HD HDC-680MP from China's HDAVS. The high-spec, shoulder-mounted model records I-frame 4:2:2 MPEG-2 at 100Mbps, and is part of a line up of production equipment that includes an editor. The system is also compatible with MXF, Avid's DNxHD editing format, and can also record MPEG-2 IBP at 25-80Mbps, 4:2:0 SD.

It uses a new storage medium, E2, which can be either solid state for reliability or hard disk for economy and size. Or both, as it can record to two of either drive in mirror mode, for security, or sequentially, for extra long recording sessions (five hours in HD with a 320GB disk). The drives fit into a unique tilt-out mechanism, and are hot-swappable with recording moving to the other drive. They can then be edited from directly.

It uses three 2/3-inch 2.3megapixel IT CCDs made by Panasonic, with 14-bit A/D conversion, and has eight digital audio inputs and three analogue audio inputs, recording to four audio channels. It also features: eight seconds pre-recording; anti-shock mounts so that the E2 drives continue recording despite vibration; 40W power consumption during recording (36W standby); S/N ratio higher than 60dB; and skin tone correction/contour softening.

The most surprising part:The price at Aliexpress is $US2105.00

My questions is-Has anyone tested this camera. If anyone has any Idea please comment.

According to TVP Europe website, Broadcast cameras - main-content | TVBEurope Magazine Online & In Print , the cost is about $40000 US.

BTW the HDAVS site, http://www.hdavs.cn/eng/index-cp680.html , makes no mention of lenses or compatability with existing lenses.

For just a moment, I was getting really excited at a $2105 price tag!


P.S. -- I just checked the AliExpress website, and yes there are 2 such camcorders for sale at $2105.26 by Victor Chan. This seems to be something like an ebay site. You might want to check ratings and comments for AilExpress at www.ResellerRatings.com .
