Re: Thunderbolt

Yeah I meant NAB, not CES. Thought so. Lacie has adopted Thunderbolt also for their solid state hard drives. Yes, everyone will soon, if only as a marketing point. Rumors are the Canon and Nikon will use Thunderbolt for their high-end DSLRs. Yes, I've heard that Canon will for certain. Frank, how f...

Re: Thunderbolt

Just wondering if anyone else thinks we should expect a Thunderbolt interface on any upcoming cameras to be announced at CES 2011. It would obviously speed up the workflow immensely. I'm sure that you meant " NAB 2011" (in April) and not " CES 2011" (which was held back in January), right? With reg...

Re: Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

Steve, speaking of Vegas, and you may already know this, but Sony has scheduled two upcoming live Web-based events, listed below. Note that the times (11 AM) are Central Standard Time, so you'll have to adjust for your time zone. A chat with the Sony Creative Software training team Friday, February ...

Re: Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

No snow here in London this week, hopefully we've seen the last of it for this winter. Firstly, the weather report: I ventured out this afternoon. Had to run to the bank (three blocks away; six blocks round trip), and can report that except for some very small piles of the stuff around some of the ...

Re: Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

We do have ice here, quite a lot of it, but it's always inside a glass. So ....as long as the ice stays inside the glass, and i stay outside the glass then i really quite enjoy it. LOL. And can still hold the camcorder steady! Frank, Independent Consultant, New York, NY Read Frank's thoughts on HDV...

Re: Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

I have no problem with the snow as long as it's outside and I'm inside. Adam, that happens to be precisely and exactly my philosophy! Doughie, of course, at least in his present locale, is probably surrounded by people who have only ever seen snow on television. :) Regards, Frank, Independent Consu...

Re: Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

Hi Doughie! I've no idea whether Sony is planning to announce replacements for these two products at NAB or not, but given the timing of the rebates, it sure wouldn't surprise me in the least if they announced replacements, possibly at more competitive price points, especially considering what the C...

Sony PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3 Rebates

Hello XDCAM EX fans: For those who might wish to benefit from this, I thought that I'd mention that Sony in the U.S. is offering Mail-In Rebates (MIRs) of $300.00 on the PMW-EX1R and $500.00 on the PMW-EX3. The rebate applies to purchases made in the February 1, 2011 through March 31, 2011 time peri...

Re: New Panasonic HDC-TM900 / HDC-HS900 / HDC-SD900 / HDC-SD

No problem, Stephan, and I certainly didn't intend to imply that you were falling down on the job. Over on this side of the pond, we also only have 24-hour days. But of course, we only get one-hour for lunch. :-) Regards, Frank, Independent Consultant, New York, NY Read Frank's thoughts on HDV [ als...

Re: An used Sony EX1 or NX5U for me?

You've probably made a purchasing decision by now, but I can tell you that if it were me, I would choose the PMW-EX1R, as it's a superior product to the HXR-NX5E (if you're in Italy, you would probably want the "E" model, by the way, and not the "U" model). If it matters to you, the HXR-NX5-series c...
