I need to buy a camera: I was on the verge of buying a Canon XH-A1 when I heard about the soon-to-be-released Sony XDCAM EX. Aside from what this new camera has to offer re picture quality and (via ExpressCard) drag-and-drop workflow, both of which sound really appealing, can someone tell me if I'm going to have to change my editing set up for the XDCAM? Will I need RAID drives, for example? Will I need some sort of HD i/o card?
I'm editing on a Mac (OSX, lots of RAM), using Avid Xpress Pro 5.7. Right now I'm using external firewire drives.
Thanks for any advice,
