Creative Video like the rest of us are second guessing what Sony are about to announce later this month…though I do find it strange that a very highly rated professional retailer has taken it upon themselves to name the camera and predict it’s price.

Sony are tight lipped about this camcorder and I better than anyone should know as I pummelled Sony’s Bill Drummond last month at ProVideo 2010 for an ounce of information. If CVP are playing a “get noticed” campaign it certainly worked.

November can be a quiet time in video retailing so anything to capture peoples imagination and feed them to their web site is no bad thing and to be fair to CVP they are perfectly up front with their speculation and are not trying to kid anyone.

The CVP take on Sony’s new camcorder is as follows : Name PMW-EX35 HD,  Sensor Full 35mm low cost sensor, Media SxS up to 35Mbs, Price £12500 plus VAT. All of course in the land of fairy tales but to be fair… it got me looking and them noticed !!!

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Wow – that’s pretty cheeky.
    I also noticed that in their ‘Iris’ Advertorial mag they are playing the ‘Guess which file-based ENG camera the BBC are going to buy’ game, which is a little premature since nothing has been announced yet.
