After Panasonic announced the EVA-1 camcorder Sony made two announcements to burry the Panasonic news.
Firstly they announced they are working on a full frame sensor ? Fine if you could afford this level of technology, but it will not be anywhere near the $10,000 price mark for this full frame camera.
Then only yesterday announce a $1000 rebate if you buy your FS5 in the USA, thanks Sony Europe ?
Both Canon with the C200 and Panasonic with the EVA-1 have rattled Sony’s cage, but so far only in the USA ? Why ?
This news is good for those of us looking to buy the Panasonic EVA-1 because Panasonic will have to look very hard at the price they charge for the EVA-1 to match the FS5 or indeed beat the FS5 which is $4,749 with the $1000 rebate.
