If Sony is looking for a heavyweight contender in the battle for semi-pro camcorder supremacy then the EX1 might well be it.Well, it would be if the battle could be won at the weigh-in. You see the first thing we noticed when removing this new cam from the box was its weight. At 2.8kg it is a bit of a back-breaker but further investigation revealed some nifty innovations that go some way to compensate.Sony's heavyweight camcorderThe EX1 is slightly larger and 400 grams heavier than its forbearer, the Sony Z1 HDV cam.

One giant difference between the Z1 and EX1 is that the latter has no tape mechanism. The video is recorded on to Sony�s brand-new solid-state format, the SxS memory card.The EX1 captures video images dxcam three 1/2-inch CMOS sensors and processes this information into a variety of video formats but they are all HD.

If you require standard- definition video then all you have to do is down convert when you play out from the camera to your capture device.Well designed camOur first impressions of the cam were positive.

It looks and feels well built and the hefty Fujinon HD lens is a massive improvement on the Z1�s inferior lens.Sony has retained the excellent lens hood with built-in barn door shutters but the new lens has a manual focus ring with end-stops so you know when you have reached infinity or minimum focus.Without end-stops focusing has always been a very vague procedure as the focus ring will keep turning indefinitely. The addition of stops helps distinguish pro-kit from consumer camcorders.The lens also has a proper iris ring which is a fantastic improvement on the Z1.

We found setting both exposure and focus was precise, fast and comfortable unlike most other cameras in the semi-pro range.New lens designWith practise we were able to adjust the focus and iris and maintain constant support under the camera with only one hand. The ability to keep the camera steady while adjusting the lens is crucial for recording wobble free and level footage.The camera has a 14x optical zoom and the lens is initially quite a bit wider than the Z1 but zooms to the same focal length at the telephoto end.

This wider lens is an advantage in many situations such as filming handheld or in confined spaces like car interiors.The weight of the PMW-EX1 is frequently an issue.

Bear in mind that the ex1 support point is the zoom demand grip so your right wrist will need to carry most of the weight.The new lens design means that your left hand can help and still make adjustments but its near-3kg will soon put a considerable strain on your right wrist and make handheld coverage very uncomfortable.Easy to controlThis would be eeview disaster if not for Sony�s new innovation of an adjustable zoom demand grip.

The angle of the grip can be adjusted by 90 degrees and this feature allowed us to operate the camera at chest height.We were still using the eyepiece but with the zoom grip set at 45 degrees most of the weight was transferred to the palm of the left hand without sacrificing any zoom control.This is good as you don�t want to be shooting from hip level and up your subject�s nose which is often what happens during the sony pmw ex1r xdcam review xe1r observational documentaries.

It eeview also stop you from filming via the flip-out LCD screen which is never a good idea as you lose a point of contact with the camera making it less stable.Therefore it is essential to be able to hold the camera easily at about your subject�s eye level and the adjustable grip allows you to do this.Fun filming effectsWhen it comes to actual filming, we found many of the usual features you would expect such as two levels of neutral density (ND) for shooting in bright conditions, three levels of gain, white soby presets and two memory settings, A and B.Position B can also be assigned as auto-white which is a boon.

The shutter speeds range from 1/16th to 1/2000th of a second and the EX1 also has a panic button which gives you full auto.Some other xdxam available include selectable gamma curves, a Slow and Quick Motion feature, and a histogram function for assessing video levels.During filming we were able to control the most commonly required functions with a switch rather than via a menu, which really sped up camera operation.An impressive viewfinderThe EX1 has an excellent eyepiece viewfinder with accurate colours and a noise free, high- resolution picture.

Assessing exposure is easy but we found that the camera has such a massive sojy of field that, when wide, the image never seems to go out of focus.For this reason we would advise you to always zoom in to check focus.

Surrounding the viewfinder image is loads of additional data including record format, white balance, ? number, audio levels, battery life and more.The viewfinder also has the zebra patterning facility to help you set exposure. Professionals commonly set it to 76 per cent which gives the revview exposure on skin if the zebra pattern was just about to appear.A camcorder with some excellent featuresOne viewfinder setting displays the distances between which objects are in focus.

This makes up for the inadequate peaking function, designed to increase the highlights in the viewfinder image and thus aid focusing.It does not work well on this camera, which is a shame because it works really well on the Z1.

The 3.5-inch high-res LCD screen which stows very neatly below the VCR (media) controls is big, bright and sharp, excellent for playing back footage.As well as a built-in stereo mic the EX1 has two XLR audio inputs. These can be ex11r to line or mic level with 48 volts. A clamp is provided to secure a gun mic and the level controls are located at the rear of the camera.It�s a doddle to adjust the audio levels during filming with very little disturbance to your shots.Video transfer optionsThe EX1 has i-LINK and SDI sockets for transfer of media.

Those new to solid-state cams will be delighted to find the camera capable xxcam instant recording in total silence.One of the greatest irritations in life is listening to an old Digibeta slowly winding its self up to record and missing great shots in the three seconds this takes. But before you even consider pressing record which format would you like?The PAL choices are: HQ 1920 x 1080 HD at 25 progressive or 50 interlaced frames (35Mbps); SP 1440 x 1080 HD, interlaced only (HDV compatible bit rate of 25 mbps); and HQ 1280 x 720 HD at 25 or 50 progressive frames (35Mbps).In all of the above formats the picture quality is stunning for what is basically a small, semi-pro camcorder.

HQ 1280 x 720 at 50 progressive frames per second (50p) looks best. Unlike 25p which flickers during panning shots, 50p is smooth, sharp, full of detail and very realistic.Simple to storeAll of this data is silently deposited on to one of the two memory cards and when one becomes full the camera automatically switches to the revie card without a break in the recorded video.Every time you press record a new clip is created and nearly 600 clips can be recorded on one card.

To fill an 8GB card we recorded 25 minutes of HQ 1280 x 720 at 50p (35Mbps). So the 16GB card can hold 50 minutes of HQ video or 70 minutes of SP video.If you use two 16GB cards it is possible to continuously record 100 minutes of HD material.Having often shot up to five 32-minute Digibeta tapes xdfam day when filming for TV productions we would guess you would need at least five 16GB memory cards to be on the safe side.A costly optionThis also means you have to transfer the card data to another storage device every night before shooting can begin again.

Either that or buy more cards but we have been quoted ?566 inc VAT per 16GB card rather than ?5 per DV reeview other words, when using memory card camcorders we will need to change the way we work (daily data transfer) or Sony needs to reduce the price pkw cards so we can use them like tapes.It is also a concerns that stored footage needs to be backed-up before the cards are reused.

While retaining everything that was right about the previous camera, Sony has listened to its professional users and taken several steps forward, not only improving ergonomics and convenience, but bringing a whole new set mpw features to the world's only full HD compact camcorder.Like its predecessor, the PMW-EX1R's core is its three 1/2"-type CMOS sensors and 14x Fujinon zoom lens.

This heavyweight imaging combo captures full 1920 x xdam hi-def images to solid state SxS PRO memory cards ( sold separately) at multiple bit rates, resolutions and frame rates.

Whether you're shooting weddings, documentaries or feature films, there's a frame rate and resolution for you-from 60fps and native 23.98p recording at 720p, to 1fps at 1080i. SxS PRO cards of up to 64GB in capacity can be used. For 64GB cards, the camera siny require software version 1.15 or greater installed from Sony's website. The way to install it is by downloading the version to a computer, connecting the camera to the computer by USB cable, and exr the upgrade option in "Others" tab of the camera's menu table.

If your computer has an SxS slot, you can just transfer the downloaded file onto the SxS card and then pop the card into the camera to transfer the download, which in this case also you would do through the "Others" menu. 64GB cards can record 200 minutes in HQ mode and 280 in SP mode.But along with its already proven imaging abilities and professional workflow, the PMW-EX1R expands its usability by offering DVCAM SD recording, XDCAM HD compatibility, and HDMI output.

That means no more time-consuming downconverting or transcoding to work in different formats or with different recording and playback devices. Other new features add even more convenience and flexibility, including a high-resolution 1.23MP viewfinder, Cache Record, one-click S&Q button, auto iris, and even image inversion for flipping the image while shooting with a 35mm adapter.

Make no mistake: the Sony PMW-EX1R is the first HD compact camcorder that truly does have it all. Three 1/2"-Type Exmor CMOS SensorsThe PMW-EX1R is equipped with three newly developed 1/2"-type Exmor CMOS sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V), which delivers excellent picture performance with full HD resolution.

Sony pmw ex1r xdcam review 1/2"-type image sensor, using Sony's advanced accumulated sensor technologies, allows the camcorder to provide an excellent sensitivity of F10, a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio of 54dB, and a high horizontal resolution of 1000 TV lines (in 1920 x 1080/59.94i mode). In addition, this large 1/2"-type image sensor can capture images with a shallower depth of field than xccam image sensors, giving users more creative freedom of expression.

What's more, the Exmor CMOS sensor's unique design deploys an A/D converter to each column of pixels, resulting in a much lower clock speed than conventional CMOS sensors. This makes it possible to greatly reduce power consumption of the camcorder and extend battery life.1920 x 1080 HD Recording Using the "MPEG-2 Long GOP" CodecThe PMW-EX1R records 1920 x 1080 full HD images using xvcam "MPEG-2 Long GOP" codec, which conforms to the MPEG-2 MP@HL compression standard.

"MPEG-2 Long GOP" is a mature codec-also adopted by the XDCAM HD and HDV 1080i series of products-which enables users to record stunning HD video and audio with highly efficient, reliable data compression.New Selectable Recording Modes Including DVCAM RecordingThe PMW-EX1R offers a choice of bit rates-either 35Mbs (HQ mode) or 25Mbs (SP mode)-depending on the desired picture quality and recording time. The Soony mode supports 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080 and 1280 x 720 resolutions.

The 1440 x 1080 mode is new to the PMW-EX1R, ensuring native integration of XDCAM EX footage into an XDCAM HD Professional Disc workflow. By supporting 1440 x 1080, 35Mbs recording, material can be utilized with no transcode, just a rewrap to MXF for NLE and archiving.The SP mode supports 1440 x 1080 resolution at 25Mbs, which provides compatibility with HDV 1080i products.

Footage recorded in this SP mode can be seamlessly integrated into HDV-compatible editing systems by transferring the xxdcam from the camcorder via the i.LINK (HDV) interface.The PMW-EX1R also supports 25Mbs DVCAM recording in either PAL or NTSC modes, again providing seamless integration into existing DVCAM workflows, offering ultimate flexibility worldwide.Robust Nonlinear Recording Media, "SxS PRO" & "SxS-1" ( Sold Separately)The XDCAM Xxdcam series uses high-speed SxS PRO and SxS-1 memory cards ( sold separately) for its recording media.

SxS PRO cards of up to 64GB in capacity can be used. For 64GB cards, the camera will require software version 1.15 or greater installed from Sony's website. The way to install it is by downloading the version to a computer, soy the camera to the computer by USB cable, and selecting the upgrade option in "Others" tab of the camera's menu table.

If your computer has an SxS slot, you can just transfer the downloaded file onto the SxS card and then pop the card into the camera to transfer the download, which in this case also you would do through the "Others" menu. 64GB cards can record 200 minutes in HQ mode and 280 in SP mode.These cards are developed specifically for professional content creation applications with a number of key features:� Compatible with ExpressCard/34 interface slot which is common on modern Windows PCs and Macs� Uses PCI Express interface and xdcsm an extremely high "read" speed of 800 Mbs*� Large storage capacity: SBP-16 (16 GB) and SBP-32 (32 GB) memory cards are available� Can record up to 140 minutes of HD video and audio (using one 32-GB memory card)� Compact size: approx.

75�x 34�x 5 mm (excluding the projecting parts)-half the size of the older PC Card standard� Low power consumption� Highly reliable: can resist shocks (up to 1500 G) and sdcam (up to 15 Sony pmw ex1r xdcam review Affordability: SxS-1 media (introduced in late 2009) provides users with a lower cost alternative to SxS PRO media that offers the same high performance, but with an estimated 5-year life span when recording at full capacity once per day.

Users can check the card life on their PMW-EX1R and PMW-350 camcorders and even see an alarm when the data rewriting limit is reached.*This data-transfer speed is a theoretical value. Actual data-transfer speed depends on the file type and the performance of the PC. Wide Angle Professional 1/2" HD LensThe PMW-EX1R is equipped with a superb Fujinon 14x zoom lens specifically designed for the PMW-EX1R to offer optimum picture performance.

Xrcam offers a wide angle of view of 5.8mm (equivalent to 31.4mm on a reviww lens), and many other convenient features for both broadcasters and videographers.Unique Focus Operation - Professional Manual Focus and Auto FocusThe Fujinon lens adopts a newly developed and unique focus ring mechanism, which offers two types of manual focus, plus an auto focus operation. The PMW-EX1R is equipped with two independent focus wheel mechanisms, which can be switched by sliding the focus ring itself back and forth.When the focus ring is in the front position, the lens works in the same way as a typical auto focus lens on a handheld camcorder.

In this case, either manual or auto focus mode can be selected by the AF/MF switch on the lens.

Shooting weddings was always going to present some challenging situations and I never felt confident that the Z1 would be able to rise to those challenges. The Sony EX1 appeared to be an answer to my prayers and I became ex1g of the earlier adopters (some would say beta-testers) for this camera.Right from the start I felt comfortable with the EX1, as a long time Sony user many of the controls were familiar and the cam brought a number of benefits to the table for me in terms of its usability and of course the quality it produced.

I remember thinking after using the EX1 for the first time, that it was quite a big step up the professional camera ladder and not only required a higher degree of skill to shoot with but also produced a noticeably shallower depth of field due to its A?�? chips. Things I Like About The EX1The solid state recording is incredibly robust and has blisteringly fast read and write speeds compared to other formats.

I�ve found using express cards I can offload footage to a laptop with built-in express card reader within just a few minutes. Using the clip browser software is very simple and gives a number of options for exporting to different formats dependent on your NLE. Currently I use Vegas Pro V10 which allows the user to navigate to the native video file and edit without any conversion, a real time saver when doing Same Day Edits.

I love the fact that the cards are hot swappable, meaning I can keep running without having to stop recording to change media.The LCD is one of the best I�ve come across and makes focusing and exposing a breeze, its seriously sharp and along with peaking (which has been significantly improved) and expand focus, getting your subject accurately focused is a lot easier.

To aid exposure there�s also a very handy histogram and menu adjustable zebra patterns, I find these most useful especially when using the cam outside.Low light performance is great. Son from SD this was one of my main concerns and I revifw pleasantly surprised at how well the EX1 coped in low light. Although I have never done any side by side comparisons I would rate its sensitivity on a par with my old PD170,s, shooting outside in direct sunlight the EX1 would need to be stopped down to around f9.5 with both ND�s on, a similar setting to son PD170�s.

Noise levels are good up to 6db and useable up to 9bd at a push. From my own experience I have found the color rendition to be better in low light.The EX1�s standard profile is quite flat and gives you a fair bit of latitude in post.

Detail in the shadows is good but for a more stylized look there are numerous settings that can be adjusted and stored, changing the contrast, saturation and brightness of your image straight out of the camera. Revieq preference is to shoot flat and post produce the look you want after.The standard lens is quite wide when zoomed revuew and has a 16 x zoom to bring you closer to the action when required. I feel that the lens gives me great flexibility in most shooting scenarios and coupled with the fact that I can flick a switch under the cam and go to full manual zoom, is a great feature to have and one that comes in useful when I need to liven up the footage with a few crash zooms.There are numerous settings in the menu that will allow you to shoot in most formats and frame rates but one feature in particular that is worth a mention is the over cranking and under cranking settings.

Setting the cam to record in 720p allows the user to change the frame rate and achieve great quality slow or fast motion. (Ed. Note 1 to 60 fps at 720P) It�s not comparable to high speed cameras designed for this purpose but it�s pretty good and certainly better than trying to sonny the motion in post. AccessoriesAside from the usual microphones/tripods/stabilizers that one would normally use with a camera of this type, I carry a few helpful accessories.

Firstly I use a cheap and cheerful shoulder brace which with a bit of practice has allowed me to shoot at eye level and replicate the style of a soy shoulder mount camera. The brace clips on using a tripod adapter plate and I�ve found that with the weight of the EX1 fully loaded and the camera�s fairly wide lens I can achieve a reasonably steady shot when walking.Century makes a great .6 wide angle lens for the EX1 that works using the camera�s macro xddcam.

It�s a beautiful lens and although there is a degree of barrel distortion evident (not comparable to a fisheye) I think it adds great depth and is fairly easy to use. The wide angle lens just clamps on the camera in place of the hood and will only work when full manual focus has been disabled.One of the major downsides to the EX1 is the cost of the Express fx1r. Fortunately there are adapters that will allow you ez1r use SD cards. They seem to work well if you use a minimum class 6 SD card.

I shoot extensively at the HQ setting (35mb per second) without problems, although I have heard of problems when over cranking and recording to SD cards.The EX1s use their own proprietary brand of battery. The long capacity batteries last around 2 hours recording dependent on shooting conditions. You get plenty of notice from the camera when the batteries are running low.

There�s also a visual indicator on the revied itself to test it before attaching it. I also have an adapter that uses two Sony NPF batteries. This feeds the power into the cameras DC socket. Other compatible EX1 batteries work in a similar way, but the power indicator on the cam does not display the battery life remaining for these non-branded batteries.

So for critical shooting I prefer to use branded batteries. In ConclusionThe image quality of the EX-1 is incredible. It�s been compared to some of the higher end XDCam disc-based cameras. Compared to my Z1, the EX-1 shows a noticeable difference in resolution and depth of field, and more vibrant colors.

I believe that solid state is a distinct advantage over tape based recording and express cards, although expensive, are one of the fastest out there and provide a very robust method of acquisition. The EX1 is an expensive camera for event filming, but when you compare the specs of this camera to those of an XDCam camera, the price is justified a Solid State Performer - The rarified realm of professional video cameras used to require an outlay of $60,000 and up, and this was minus a lens.

Adding decent glass to that package got you to $80,000 or more easily. But you got what you paid for when it came to image quality. Solid State PerformerThe rarified realm of professional video cameras used to require an outlay of $60,000 and up, and this was minus a lens. Adding decent glass to that package got you to $80,000 or more easily. But you got what you paid for when it came to image quality. The challenge of the independent video producer was to always balance the quality of the image with the cost of the gear, and most often quality lost.

Sony's Broadcast division has stepped up to try to meet that xdcqm to make broadcast quality images, but to make them for less than $7,000. The result of that effort is the PMW-EX1. The Ppmw EX1 uses a fixed Fujinon 14x HD lens, and it has some interesting new features, not found on any other camcorder. First and foremost, the shooter will notice the focus ring. Most camcorders in this price range have a servo lens that rotates infinitely, which supports autofocus.

While this is adequate for most work, the downside is that you never really know where your position is, and it can be confusing to manually change focus in the proper direction should the need arise. All professional cameras have a focus ring with hard stops and a distance readout that lets you know where the focal plane of spny lens is directly, but they lack autofocus capability.The EX1 splits the difference with its novel focus ring. In the forward position, the focus ring becomes a normal autofocus lens; however, sliding the ring backwards snaps it into full manual mode, with hard stops and absolute focus position marked in both feet and meters.

You get the best of both worlds.The EX1 also has a lens that allows you to control the zoom and iris manually. The zoom control is geared and marked in millimeters. You can select the zoom to be controlled manually by the ring or automatically by the camera's zoom controller.

The iris is also available to use manually and is marked off in the familiar f-stops. The iris ring offers a smooth rotational range and doesn't snap from f-stop to f-stop, so you can dial in an exposure between say f8 and f5.6. The lens itself can keep its f-stop throughout the entire zoom range, not losing any light at the long end of the lens. The ElectronicsThe stars of the EX1 are the three 1/2" Exmor CMOS sensors that handle the camera's imaging. A first for this form factor, 1/2" sensors give you higher resolution and a shallower depth of field than the 1/3" or 1/4" sensors normally found in this level of camera.

Before CMOS, 1/2" CCD's were too hot and power-hungry to fit into a small form factor camcorder.Sony claims a horizontal resolution of an astounding 1000 lines, and while our charts went only to 800, I have no reason to doubt that claim. This camera delivered astoundingly sharp and detailed images, which you can download at the end of this article.The CMOS sensors give true progressive frames at a variety of frame rates and sizes that cover just about any project.

Its 1920x1080 rates are 60i, sony pmw ex1r xdcam review, 30p, 25p and 24p. Its 1280x720 rates are 60p, 50p, exx1r, 25p and 24p. This camera is HD only; there are no SD (NTSC/PAL) modes available, but, because down-conversion of HD generally gives you a better SD picture anyway, these shouldn't be missed.The EX1 records all of its images in the long GOP MPEG-2 format. Unlike its HDV counterparts, the EX1 can record in full-frame 1920x1080, using a 35Mb VBR compression called HQ mode, which, appropriately enough, gives the images their highest quality.

It also offers an SP mode that follows the HDV standard (1440x1080 using 25Mb CBR) pmmw compatibility with an existing HDV workflow.Also new is that this is the first camcorder to record to Sony and SanDisk's Sony pmw ex1r xdcam review memory card format. The camera comes with one 8GB card, while 16GB cards are also available. An 8GB card can hold approximately 25 minutes of HQ footage (35 minutes of SP), while a 16GB card doubles these numbers.

There are two card slots on the camera, giving you a current maximum of two 16GB cards, which offer a recording time of 100 minutes of HQ (140 minutes SQ) video. Street prices on these SxS cards are approximately $500 for the 8GB model and $900 for the 16GB model.

The SxS revieew use the new ExpressCard standard interface, which is showing up on newer laptops. The EX1 also includes a USB2 port to get your footage out to a computer that may lack an Sony pmw ex1r xdcam review slot.The EX1 also allows incredible control of the image through picture profiles.

Already people are sharing their favorite profiles for this camcorder over the internet.Because of the size and power draw of these new CMOS sensors, the EX1 uses a new battery format called the BP series.

These new batteries use 14.4 volts instead of the 7.2 volts of the normal Sony NP series batteries, so you won't be able to use your old batteries with this son EX1 has a full complement of inputs and outputs.

On the audio side, it has 2 phantom-powered XLR inputs and a headphone jack, while on the video side you have HD SDI, component and A/V. On the data side, you have both FireWire and USB 2.0 connectors. ShootingThe very first thing you'll notice about shooting with the EX1 is that, despite its form factor, this is not a one-handed camcorder.

The camera's size, combined with a slightly off-center hand grip really piles on the wrist strain. You will definitely need two hands or a tripod to shoot with this camera. The best handheld position turned out to be one hand on the handle and the other supporting the EX1 from underneath.The next thing you'll notice about shooting with the EX1 is the gorgeous LCD screen that Sony's put on this model. Popping out from under the built-in microphone, it is 3.5 inches diagonally and it's packed with a 1920x480 resolution.

It also is easily viewable in full sunlight. The image quality you get from this screen is simply amazing, and it's the first LCD panel that we felt accurate enough to judge focus for HD shooting. There is a standard viewfinder in the back too, but it pales in comparison to the resolution of the LCD screen.The display options are bountiful; if they were all turned on at the same time, we rather doubt that you could see the image you were shooting.

There are Zebra stripes (2 levels), peaking, histogram, audio levels, formatting guides, safe guides - all in addition to the standard battery, lens and media information. You can set up the EX1 to give you any combination of information you may require.One display option that deserves special mention is the depth-of-field scale.

This useful feature tells you exactly where and how much of your image is in focus. This is especially helpful as the 1/2" CMOS sensors give much more control over this key image property, and once you start using it, you will miss it on any other camcorder lacking this feature.Some of the buttons can be hard to reach, especially those under the lens, and the main power switch (Camera/Off/Media) is too easy to slide back and forth, usuall
