Impressions of the Sony EX1

Shooting XDCam with a new breed of camcorder


PAGE 2 First Impressions
The box arrived, the camera is in my hands. It was smaller than I had imagined. Shorter than a Z1 yet chunkier, due to the protruding, rotating, hand-grip. Amazingly compact for what it is.

The Lens
LensI hadn't even switched the camera on, yet the lens stood out as being something special. To touch, it feels like a pro lens. The mechanism, the look, the markings, the layout -I get the impression the designers started with a lens and then built a camera to attach to this. Of all the lenses on all the affordable cameras that have ever come to market this stands out as being high-end.

SxS cards in the slots, battery attached, screen extended, I switch it on.
