Other Cameras:

Two 32gig SxS cards(3 hours recording at highest quality), VariZoom controller, 77mm circular pola.
Sony put the lens and 3 chip block of the EX1 in a new body and fixed all the EX-1 annoyances:

  • Grip closer to body for better hand-hold balance.
  • High resolution eyepiece.
  • Better IR filtration so black cloth shows up as black.  (Original EX1 gave magenta cast to blacks)
  • Instantly switch from record to playback and back to record.  (EX1 and EX3 took several seconds each way)
  • 50 mb/sec 8-bit 422 record mode for better greenscreen and post effects, or use 35 mb/sec mode to match EX1, EX3.
  • HDMI out.
  • Timecode in and out via BNC.  Genlock too.
