The Production Depot has taken delivery of its new Sony XDCams. The Sony PMW-EX1 XDCam offers all the benefits of tapeless workflow, selectable bit rates and outstanding picture performance coupled with new creative recording features and lens features which are hoping to redefine the standard for the professional compact camcorder market.
The PMW-EX1 is a compact, robust and high-performance camcorder that uses newly developed flash memory cards, the SxS PRO™, as its recording medium. The SxS memory card, which realizes 800Mbps high-speed data transfer, enables non-linear capabilities such as instant random access and file-based operation.
Equipped with two SxS memory card slots, the PMW-EX1 can record up to 100 minutes of high quality HD footage at 35Mbps or 140 minutes at 25Mbps using two 16-GB SxS memory cards.
It is switchable between 1080i and 720P with multiple frame recording
capability such as 50i, 59.94i, 50p, 59.94p and native 25P, 29.97p and
23.98P. The PMW-EX1 camcorder also offers a “Slow & Quick Motion” capability, which is also commonly known as “over-cranking” and
“under-cranking” in the traditional film world, allowing users to create unique looks or special effects of slow and fast motion. Having these functions, PMW-EX1 is on the product line of Sony CINEALTA™.
