At the GV Expo 07, I had the opportunity to see the exciting new HDV camcorders. While there, I saw that Sony had a whole schedule of instructional presentations about many of there newest products.
Juan Martinez was the scheduled speaker for the HDV camcorders. His deep knowledge of the HVR-S270 and the HVR-Z7U, as well as the PMW-EX1 is clearly evident. He is able to compare and contrast numerous functions between all three of the camcorders with ease in response to audience questions.
The video I am presenting here…
is the public presentation at the show, augmented with stills and video I shot of the HDV camcorders, and a few close up images from Sony Press Releases that I’ve linked to in my overview of the new camcorder announcements.
It is just shy of 30 minutes in its edited form.
I have other videos from the show floor, including Panasonc’s Steve Golub giving us a walkaround of the new Panasonic prosumer AVCHD camcorder, the AG-HMC70. This is the bigger version of Panasonic’s AG-HSC1U palmcorder I panned back in August. The new camera improves on two and a half of my four biggest gripes, and completely misses the opportunity to address the fourth gripe- increase the AVCHD data rate for the “prosumer” varsion of this camcorder. If you missed my review, be sure to read it through before checking out the HMC70.
Even though I’ll soon be changing servers, try to keep it “tuned in” here so you don’t miss a minute.
