The new Sony EX-1R
Remember the EX-1R does not have an interchangeable lens.
Strangely we seem to be getting a revamp of the EX-1 rather than the EX-5. Specs are rumoured to be…
A new viewfinder
One push mode for slow and quick recording like the EX3
Quicker start up, better ergonomics.
SD will supposedly be .AVI files
Possibly record’s 4:3
Camera holding improvement
One push mode change for S&Q
Quicker Start Switches
Jog Dial improvements and firmware version up by users
NB. Will the new EX-1R allow the MxR adapters this would be a serious blow if Sony have been stupid enough to exclude this archive “feature”.
I still don’t understand Sony’s logic in naming this camcorder the EX-1R, if it is better than the EX-3 and by all accounts it should be streets ahead then are we for the 1st time in history going to see EX-3s being sold for EX-1Rs. Where does this leave the EX-3 you aren’t going to seriously tell me we are going to see an EX-3R. As we all know the EX-1 & 3 are the same camcorder with some enhancements on the EX-3 so to call a further enhanced EX1/3 an EX-1R is silly and very confusing.
I do realise that I may have played a part in this by predicting the EX-5 with this chipset back in July and further back on the 1st of April announcing the EX-7 so maybe I stole Sony’s numbers !
Philip Bloom was the 1st blog to mention the EX-1R.
Sony will be announcing the full specs on Tuesday 20th October 2009
