It took a hybrid DSLR from Canon the 5D mk11 to show video manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic that there was not only a need but a major Yen earner !
Why when it’s so obvious does it always take the domestic side of a major corporation like sony to announce a full frame 35mm sensor camcorder.
I was surprised to see Sony domestic maintaining the same camera body as the VG10/20/30 when a slightly bigger body would have been in my opinion far more user friendly.
This FF35mm camcorder has really set the heather alight, Sony are going for the large sensor market big time, it’s just a pity the EA50 due out in November is crippled with an APS-C sensor.
Sony Professional need to respond with FF35mm sensor camcorders, especially the lame 35Mbps Super 35mm F3. Bring out a FF35mm F3 with 50Mbps, Hi Res viewfinder and the Yen will come pouring in.
F5 concept but who knows maybe Sony has this very model sitting in the wings waiting for the right moment in time to be announced.
Sony Professional cannot avoid producing FF35mm camcorders or Canon will trump them yet again with a FF version of the C300, as night turns to day this will happen…hopefully soon !
