Hey fellas. I'm really close to purchasing my first HD camera and i'm leaning towards the xd cam. Does anyone know of any new technology or new cameras that are coming out in the near future that I might want to wait for or look into? Thanks for the advice.
The Sony XDCAM EX3 should be available around mid-July.
The Red One is another interesting thing but different animal. 4k and higher budget even if quite low compared to other high end HD ot 4k cameras
I'm pretty much ready to purchase an Xdcam ex and then along comes the promise of Scarlet (3K for under $3k!!) which look like it'll revolutionise the business, but it doesn't exist and I bet on over a year to wait and I've hopefully got a few projects between now and then so I might buy.....
There's always going to be another camera around the corner- in addition to the EX3 which gives you interchangeable lenses and the Scarlet- which is easily a year off. There's also the Panasonic HVX200A and the HPX170. But rest assured the EX1 is a solid camera and among the top in its class and price range. Do your research and you won't be disappointed.
