Sony EX3 or Scarlet
Posted 30 May 2009 - 08:41 PM
I am having a hard time deciding whether or not I should buy the Sony EX3 w/ a Red Rock Micro Encore 35mm adapter or wait for Reds Scarlet to be released, hopefully Aug. or Sept.
Is the Sony EX3 a dead end product once the Scarlet surfaces? If I do purchase the Sony and the Scarlet comes out with I even be able to sell it? Should I buy a used Panasonic HVX while I wait, even though P2 cards are more expensive then Sony's tape-less media?
I would very much appreciate it if you guys can give me some advice.

Now for the comments that I will probably get murdered for saying, I personally prefer the EX3 over the RED. I don't know about the Scarlet because it's not out yet so I have not used it. The RED however has become the most popular camera that I work with & I have discovered that I much prefer the EX3 over it, stock or with an adaptor, preferable the CineMek, hate the Red Rock.
I don't think that if you purchase an EX3 it would become a dead end product once the Scarlet comes out. Just my 2¢

Question, why do you hate Red Rocks new Encore 35mm adapter?

SO in terms of your question; the HVX/EX is out now, the scarlet is not. If you need a camera now, then buy a camera. If you do not, then you wait.

Also, if you want to do higher end stuff with an EX3, you have the option of recording it uncompressed to a disk array, an option you presumably won't have with a scarlet.
