Anyone know anything about this XDCAM HD? Is/are the camera(s) out and available? Or does it only exist as a prototype which is taken around to trade shows?
I read that it was at NAB shows or whatever, and in another article I read where 60 of them were delivered, but on the Sony Pro website I don't see the camera(s). Only the DVCAM version.
Any idea of how it's image quality compares with any of the HD CAM cameras?
Any ideas on the price of the camera(s)?
I talked at SPMTE 05 with Sony Sales.
It is about 35mps,so it is 3 times more compressed then Pana HD.
Personally,speaking of cameras,I like new Pana HDX 400.
It is about US$40,000 and it does in PAL 25p and 50i,NO 24.
I was fortunate to be present when the local Sony rep and the japanese rep dude arrived with the ONE OF A KIND Sony XDcam HD "cinealta (silver)" at my work I work at the PBS in North Carolina. We will likely be ordering 15 or so of these cameras. This one which hadnt been totally tuned up yet was amazing.
