I have just recently purchased a Sony PMW EX3 camera. I have a PC (laptop) not an AppleMac. Will I be able to make use of Adobe Elements to transfer and edit my EX3 visuals on my PC or do I have to invest in the more expensive and complicated Premiere Pro software or Final Cut Pro and AppleMac?
Wish you luck with your EX3 camera when you get it. It seems to be an incredible piece of hardware. I'm still getting my mind around it and will eventually (soon) make it an extension of my body.
The ergonomics could have been better in terms of one's access to the zoom control on the grip. I can't get my left hand through the gap between the top of the lens and the operating panel on the handle (maybe my hand is just too big!). The wing nut locking the viewfinder in place blocks access to the zoom control when I need to zoom and pull focus at the same time (not sure if there are other operators who can do that but I learned that little trick from early days on Betacams)while operating the pan handle.
