  • Do we wait for another Sony?

    Sony seems to be on a roll... the hvr-z7u looks to have some great features as well as the EX1. Yah... 1/3" chips, but interchangeable lenses on a Sony? 1.5 lux, 1080p, best of all it looks as if it will write to standard CF cards... not SxS! Due out Feb. '08.

    So, will it work with Edius Pro??? Maybe!

    MPEG2...Eek! :P

    If Sony released a 1/2" Inch Full HD H264 Intra codec HVX200 style camera in the $6k range, I'd grab it right now.

      Yeah, that odd codec used for much of the world's TV broadcasts and all DVD movies... ;-)

      Seriously, the EX1 will be an interesting test of the trade-offs between camera specs and recording format when compared to the HVX200.

        Does anyone know if the Sony Z7U will work with Edius?

          In one way or another, I am sure it will since Edius seems to be able to use almost anything and may need to convert it for better performance. But I would venture to say that it probably will.

          Let's wait for KH to chime in!

            There isn't a lot of data to hand regarding this new model, but I would say if it's MPEG-2 TS based (ala HDV), then it should be supported in EDIUS Pro. There doesn't appear to be anything strange about the formats it'll record - we're already pretty tight with Sony 1080 formats.

            Interface-wise, you're using compact flash so import would be a case of browsing (or perhaps using Sony software...but again, M2T recording should be fairly standard).

                So far it only seems to be included with the 2 New Camera Models.

                  The MRC1 is available separately. I am actually conversing with Sony parts right now to get one. If you'd like I'll provide the information in a few days?
