  7. Hey guys, I've notice throughout this thread that you’re all comparing the EX1 and the new Z7. Though similar in size and appearance, that's the only real similarities, the two have in common. The two cameras were designed and developed by two different departments at Sony. The EX1 is produced by the XDCAM department and is intended as a secondary small profile camera to compliment their full sized F335 and F355 tape less acquisition camcorders designed for broadcast ENG use. It represents the low end of the XDCAM family. On the other hand; the Z7 and the larger S27 are the high end of the HVR, HDV based family of camcorders. So, the EX1 and Z7 were never intended to be used, or compared side by side. Unfortunately the only choices available for us underwater content producer for many years was a prosumer Handycam or $100, 000.00 beast. In the next few months were going to have a plethora of choices we’ve never had before and the only question is going to be, how much quality can you afford? I’ve seen the images the EX1 can produce and they’re stunning. I’m sure we’ll all be impressed by the Z7 too. But, as with the CCD size is everything. So, If you’re shooting primarily for broadcast, I’d suggest sticking with the EX1. If you’re looking for a cost effective way to shoot HD footage and produce non-broadcast DVD, etc. I think the HVR model will best suit for your needs. And BTW Gates and Amphibico are both working on a housing for the EX1
