    Sony's new HVR-Z7U and HVR-S270U will be shipping in mid February.
    Will Edius 4.6 pro or Broadcast support these new cameras?

    Thanks

    They just shoot HDV Ronnie so there shouldn't be any problems at all.

        I am beginning to think that I should have waited for the 270 instead of the EX at least I could shoot DVCAM and I guess get good clean video until the Blu Ray gets affordable for the masses.

          A friend of mine bought the EX and is very unhappy. He not only doesn't like the blurr in motion shots he really hates the looooooooong start up time (and has actually missed shots because of it) and the terrible way it off balances in one's hands. He's negotating trading it off this week in Cleveland and if not then in LA next week, opting to get an HVX200.

            Is the HVX any better in these regards? - I'm on the fence too...

              I would wait until NAB to see what Panasonic has up it's sleeve. It's only 2 months away.

                Hmm - true, although the Z7 is looking really good - tape and Memory at the same time!

                  Depends on what issue you are talking about.

                  If it is blur from 24P, well, that's largely dictated by the frame rate and temporal resolution. Given the same frame rate and shutter speed, the blur will be identical.

                  However, there are differences in how the sensors scan. The HVX reads out the entire sensor at the same time, something the EX doesn't do -- it has a rolling shutter. When the camera pans or zooms rapidly, or if an object moves quickly through a locked shot, that can cause distortion problems that are difficult not to notice.

                  Regarding handling, if you aren't putting the cameras on a tripod, I would suggest some other support system like a DVRig. Neither camera is one you want to hand-hold for extended periods.

                  As far as startup times are concerned, the HVX takes a couple of seconds (I'd day between three and five) when you turn it on, but there is no lag when you actually start recording, and in video (not film) mode, it can pre-record so that your recording actually includes a couple of seconds from before you pressed the REC button.
