    And then think how amazing video Canon D5 MARK II can do, and it is a FOTO-CAMERA!
    I wonder what is going to happen to Sony EX-series sales after new Canon-video cameras has been introduced…

    Let see the cameras(captor, media,..) and the prices Peter.
    For an EX-1 and a NANO you pay 9K, and you can record at 280Mbps instead of 50Mbps.
    They are making the same mistake than SONY no giving option to higher data rates.

    [Petteri Evilampi] “I wonder what is going to happen to Sony EX-series sales after new Canon-video cameras has been introduced…”

    They will continue to be purchased by the same types of people who use and love them today. The EX series is an outstanding value for the price, and for those who need a more capable codec, several solutions at affordable price points already exist (nano Flash, Ki Pro).

    Canon’s new camera(s) will only be disruptive if they can offer a significantly better product at an equivalent or lower price. That would necessitate a native 1920×1080 progressive sensor, variable frame rate recording (over/undercranking), a true manual focus lens and HDSDI on all models (not just the top end model). If Canon’s new products offer those features plus full-raster 4:2:2 recording, some people may consider it as an alternative to the EX line.

    Canon is late to the party, being several years behind Panasonic and Sony in regard to solid state workflows and codecs superior to HDV. I don’t think Sony has much to worry about.

    The rumour is that the cameras will be 1/3 inch chips which means not usable for almost all broadcast purposes.
