World Exclusive…Sony PMW-350K XDCAM 2/3″ Shoulder mount SxS camcorder £13K

Categories: Miscellaneous 6 Comments

Sony-PMW-350K-v5You heard it here 1st …Last April I predicted an EX-7 and good old Sony have been listening to me and are about to announce the PMW-350K/L and the amazing news is the fact that it is a 2/3″ chipset with two SxS card slots.

We have also been told that we are getting a 32GIG SxS card for £200 this is similar to the P2E card…ice cream without the strawberries.

Sony know this is going to affect sales of the PDW-700 but it’s also going to affect sales from Panasonic, Ikegami, JVC and to a lesser extent Canon, but they also know how many of us have embraced the EX format and by bringing out a 2/3″ camcorder will enhance the EX range from event producers right up to broadcast. I have no idea wether we are going to see 50mbs but you can be assured this will be the camcorder of 2009.

Sorry I got my fractions wrong it should read 2/3″

SONY WILL BE GIVING A FULL ANNOUNCEMENT ON TUESDAY 20th October 2009

More news as we get it…

    Well done with your world exclusive. I bet Sony will be scratching their heads as to how you got it.

    Well done again.

    This is almost as good as the 2009 F1 GP at Interlagos yesterday! Can’t imagine Sony were posting about a DSLR on an XDCAM microsite …. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s update.

    I am just glad to be announcing a video camera for a change the DSLRs are very good for what they are but I am a video man at heart and it looks like Sony are bringing Christmas forward by 10 weeks !

    So, how much is this going to cost? And is the 32m/s really high def. or just glorified HDV. The solid state medium is nice but It’s not HiDef.

  5. HD Warrior says:

    Depends who you buy it from…£14,375incl vat is the expected price, 35m/s is as good as I need, glorified HDV it certainly is not.
    You can hook various HD-SDI recorders on the back of the 350 and you can record 50-100m/s.

  6. Video Man says:

    Great camera, only shame is you can’t record to DVCAM as an option if you run out of memory cards.
