Provided me years of great service. Reliable, capable, and still extremely great even in 2014

  • Summary: There's a reason this camera is still being used widely, even though newer models are out (PMW-200) I owned the non-r version, i'll note the differences between the two, but the main difference is that the R has HDMI.

  • Summary: There's a reason this camera is still being used widely, even though newer models are out (PMW-200) I got an EX1 right when it first came out and shot a feature on it, we were all amazed at the quality. Coming from a Z1U, this was a whole new ballgame.

This Camera is a game changer for it's niche!

Jake "Jake", Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Superb camera for it's price point (under 10k). Nothing in it's comparable market comes close to this camera. Great build quality, 3x half-inch sensors, superb image - handles blacks really well, and very well designed. Perfect 2nd camera for larger productions or 1st camera for lower budget docs.

  • Summary: This is a true Professional HD video camera at an affordable price. Truly a cut above the prosumer level.
  • Pros: Recording formats, SDHC Cards, Outputs and Inputs, Picture Quality
  • Cons: Clunky White Balance set up which is really not quite there yet.

The Best Pro Camera for the Price

Amazon Customer "Lloyd Lopez", Amazon
8 February 2012
  • Summary: Our studios use 4 of these for a cooking show on a big international network. They work flawlessly. I've seen some with 600+ hours on them and still running perfectly. If you're looking at this camera, you already know what it can do, so I won't rehash what everyone's already raved about on other...

If you are looking for a high quality camera, this is the one. I swear.

  • Summary: This is a great camera, I have already used it for dozens of interviews and the quality is suberb. It has so many extra features that can make my product go further than others.

Just fantastic

V. Sassmannshausen, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera seems to split the forums. It's a camera that will not work in tourist auto mode, it would be a waste of money to do so. Having tested the cam now 2 month, it will be the main cam for my movie short. The image is brilliant, the options are great to improve the needed quality.

Solid performer, with a few quirks

N. Csakany "Nick C", Amazon
18 August 2008
  • Summary: The EX1 model is Sony's first XDCAM model specifically targeted at the higher end of the prosumer segment. It offers the best image quality in its class, bar none.... if the operator is aware of the CMOS vs. CCD sensor differences.

Best thing since Super 16mm!

H. T. J. Dahms "Film Director", Amazon
28 May 2008
  • Summary: This is not a technical review! I'm a screenwriter and film director and formerly exclusively worked on 35mm and 16mm. I bought the PMW-EX1 in January 2008, shortly after its release and have just shot an arthouse feature film on it.

Greatest new HD camcorder in the under $10K range

Frank Casanova "Director, Studio Owner", Amazon
11 February 2008
  • Summary: This camera is an absolute winner for Sony! Incredible full-blown 1080p HD. This is the Panasonic HVX-200 killer. But then, it surpasses the HVX in almost every catagory...from chip size, pixel size & number, Fujinon lens, to the much better SxS Flash Express recording medium.
