Hi there

Dont see much talk of the new PDW700(think thats right) 2/3 inch XDCAM camera.


I know its not really out there yet,but any thoughts about this camera for the doco/corp world.Seems like a no brainer to me,provided it has variable frame rates,and presuming its an accepted format by BBC/Discovery/Nat geo etc

Thanks

It's now out there and getting pretty favourable comments. No variable frame rates, but now has 50/60i and 25P, scheduled to have 720 50/60P firmware update in October. The disc workflow I think is excellent. BBC and Discovery give it full acceptance.
