Will be shooting a televison project in 1080i. Client will accept 730 instead of F900. I've used the 900 but not the 730. What differences can I expect besides the fact that the 730 will not do 24P?
Are the bodies similar? Same weight? Same power consumption? Same noisy cooling fans?
Thanks

730 is smaller quiter lighter cheaper, HDSDI out built in.

Cons
Single optical filter wheel.
10bit AD.
No user gamma.

Thanks Mike
Can I also add the 750 to this inquiry.
Mainly, how is the 750 different than the 730?

Is there a Sony site with specs and info?

Thanks all

750p has 25p and 50i.
2 filter wheels. more expensive than 730.
Sony website has more details.

Rates are changing. f900 is around £1800 week with one lens. Not much difference to 750.
