Sony EX3 Hire and Rental from VID4
The sony EX3 is a semi shoulder mount camcorder using the XDCAM format and capturing footage to twin SXS card slots and we have to say has been one of our favorite cameras for the past few years with a big LCD screen to easily see what you are shooting and a flip over panel to use the LCD as a viewfinder I would say that I feel more comfortable using this sytem to focus than any other Ive used before the detail is surprising, the sony EX3 is a professional camcorder that’s actually very easy and intuitive to use.
Complete with a 14x Fujinon swappable lens (outstanding in low light) and some handy features to help you get creative a little dial on the side of the camera allows you to dial in custom frame rates simply unlike cameras that came before all you need to do is push in the dial for three seconds and then turn the dial to overcrank or undercrank the speed giving you ultimate control for fast or slow motion capture, the EX3 is also the first camera of this size to sport the legendary CineAlta 24P brand.
When you consider the technology and above the all the breathtaking results that the Sony EX3 offers you will be pleasantly surprised at how light the unit actually feels once perched on your shoulder it has an extendable shoulder pad to make things even more comfortable and really can be used all day without any fatigue for the operator.
Focusing on the EX3 is outstanding and with the use of advanced peaking to help the autofocus the results are extremely sharp and stay locked on the subject very well this is complimented by the usual set of features you would expect from a camera of this caliber with a histogram and zebra to keep you informed and in control all viewable easily on the crisp screen.
Shooting at this standard with an EX3 you are unlikely to be using the built in audio so you will find two XLR inputs however the quality of the inbuilt stereo microphone might surprise you and is perfectly usable in some situations.
