The Sony PMW-EX3 is a flash-memory based high definition camcorder capable of a variety of frame rates and resolutions using Sony's new XDCAM-EX intra-frame codec. A "big-brother" to the PMW-EX1, the PMW-EX3 ups the ante by providing an interchangeable lens mount. The mount allows users to put a variety of professional lenses on the camera, including 1/2" and 2/3" bayonet mounts (with optional adapter).
Enhancing both usability and workflow efficiency, the PMW-EX3 has an extensive set of features that push the boundaries of traditional handheld cameras, including a continuous record time of up to 140 minutes! Whether shooting in 720p, 1080i, or 1080p modes, the PMW-EX3 has it all covered. Its bevy of output settings lets users take advantage of fast and slow motion, as well as popular frame rates such as the "film-like" 24p mode.

This is my 3rd EX3 purchase. It is the Swiss Army knife of ENG cameras if you do not need 422/50mbs. I have used these cameras for broadcast projects and for industrials and this year I am doing 3 camera setups week in and week out. You cannot beat this camera for the price point and capability.
