I own an EX3 but have to rent an EX1 for a 2 camera shoot.
Are there any issues matching these 2 cameras? I know the guts are the same, but are the upgrades in firmware for the EX1 going to be a problem?
I will not have much time to match them, are the factory set Picture Profiles the same in both?
You can match them, you will need to make a picture profile with the EX3 and then save it to the SxS card, then copy it to your computer, the folder will be "Sony" then open all the folders until you find the EX3 folder, then rename it to EX1 and copy it back the an SxS card and recall it to the EX1 camera.
Thanks for the thanks, just remember to rename that file, I did this many years ago and it worked then, I just hope it still does after all the firmware upgrades. I don't have my EX1 anymore for I don't know for sure, but I think it still works. Let us know if it works.
Michael, I am very new at pro video. Just bought my first camera sony ex1. Do you advice i buy the letus extreme with the optimization or not. Spoke to someone at B&H who said not to do it because it doesnt work well and it is a waste of money. Please help
This is completely off topic to this thread, but if you are wanting the Letus adapter for shallow depth of field focus the Letus and Red Rock Encore adapters work well. However with any adapter there are limitations with trying to make an EX1/3 more than what it is and there are new camera solutions (FS100, PMW-F3) available now that make these type of adapters obsolete . I suggest you start a new post with your questions.
Thanks Michael. I really appreciate your help. Please bare with me because I am new to the blog. I will do as you said "start a new discussion". But please if you can make this clear to me it will help me very much. I have already purchased the EX1 so I understand that I can only get what the camera is capable of but from your perspective does the letus system actually work. It may not be as good as the cameras you adviced but will it still get me close to the film look?
