EX1R or EX1 & Convergence NanoFlash
Posted 17 January 2010 - 01:08 PM
I've also done quite a bit of work with the Viper Filmstream, coupled with the Convergencen flash drive. Now, that camera is a WEE BIT out of my price range, but the new nanoFlash unit, with its smaller size and price, has me thinking. If I went with an older, cheaper EX1, I could funnel those savings toward a nanoFlash, as well as invest in some 32g and 64 gig flash cards, which are much cheaper than the SxS cards proprietary to the EX1 line.
But another issue is working with the material in post. I prefer using Adobe Premiere, and I understand there are some issues with importing footage. Perhaps this has been resolved with a plugin, or with the eventual CS5?
What do you all think?

If you plan to keep it long term, get the EX1R.

The best would of course be an EX1R+Nanoflash, but if I had to choose between an EX1R and an EX1+Nanoflash I would go with an EX1+Nanoflash in a heartbeat! In the end of the day what counts is the image quality and the image quality is EXACTLY the same between the 2 cameras as is also the EX3. The small ergonomic differences between the EX1 and EX1R are minimal. The much better quality of the Nanoflash makes a much bigger difference. About the only thing I really miss in the EX1 is the new HDMI connector. All else is pretty superficial. Just my opinion.
