1. The lens hand grip has been changed to the same hand grip as that of the PMW-EX1R, with improved ergonomics for increased user comfort when used hand-held.
2. The handgrip also incorporates a One-Push Auto Iris button, again similar to the PMW-EX1R,which the camcorder (PMW-EX3) fully supports.
3. The lens focus ring, which is slideable from the AF/MF position to the Full MF postion, now includes the easily seen orange painted ring like the PMW-EX1R so that the current operational position of the focus ring can be easily discerned.
4. The PMW-EX3/2 now includes a promotional 16GB SxS card

You said "announced" as opposed to "rumor." If Sony made an announcement it would include an official release. I've never known Sony to do this any other way. In fact the product naming EX3/2 doesn't follow any known Sony naming convention. This doesn't seem like an "announcement."

Feel free to scan and use the COW file upload function assuming it's not NDA . . . which would mean you've been notified but it has not been announced. Maybe better to say "Dealers Notified" as opposed to "Announced."

B&H does show EX3 as temporarily out of stock which one may infer a replacement is coming. If they're out of stock though they're certainly not trying to get rid of current stock. The supply constraints may have already been . . .

Ok.. Sony hasn't made the announcement but since I received some of these cameras today, I am making the announcement. So it is official, Sony PMW-EX3/2 announced.

I don't see anything in the upgrade that excites me. I have always loved the handgrip on my EX-3. This upgrade seems pretty boring to me. Yawwwwnnnnnnnn!

haha.. it is not the kind of thing where you get rid of your current EX3 to buy the new one. However, if you are buying a new EX3, you should try and get the new version. In stock. Holla.

Hello.

I'm centimeters away from bying the EX3, but then I saw this post. As anybody will understand it's hard to spend so much money on a videocamera if there is an update just around the corner. So my question is, does anybody know when the EX3 update is available on the European market?

Regards
Christopher

[Christopher Thuesen] "update just around the corner."

Sony isn't making this public. You have to have a trusted dealer who will let you know that they have the new shipment in.

Sony is mailing me a sales brochure. I'll post any new changes I see. The local dealer (Rule Broadcast / Boston Camera) told me that the new features listed in the first post are the only changes.

I thought the old hand grip was a pain. I don't know if the new one will be that much better.

  • 1. The lens hand grip has been changed to the same hand grip as that of the PMW-EX1R, with improved ergonomics for increased user comfort when used hand-held.
  • 2. The handgrip also incorporates a One-Push Auto Iris button, again similar to the PMW-EX1R,which the camcorder (PMW-EX3) fully supports.
  • 3. The lens focus ring, which is slideable from the AF/MF position to the Full MF postion, now includes the easily seen orange painted ring like the PMW-EX1R so that the current operational position of the focus ring can be easily discerned.
  • 4. The PMW-EX3/2 now includes a promotional 16GB SxS card

If Sony goes by past practice (as with the EX1R) there will probably be a cache record function on the updated EX3. Sony may even include SD recording.

Given Sony mentions there's no name change in the product, I have a hunch this is just one of those "the specs may change without notice" updates that one sees as a disclaimer on a lot of product literature spec sheets. The fact that this seems to be going out to dealers and not being used in public marketing, I suspect they think there's nothing major added as a sales generator.

Craig is correct, the only changes to the model are what are listed in the original post

FYI: It has just been determined that items 1-3 on this list are false.
The camera will now come with a 16Gb card but the rest of the changes were cancelled by Sony.
