I am back from Cannes. Wow! What a trip once again; I' ve got to play with the new Arri Alexa and a prototype of the new Viewfinder (more on this coming up soon). I've also got to see JR' s "Women are heroes" that was entirely shot with Canon 7D' s. I saw it on a 2k projection; I can only say WOW! The film itself and the image quality! Go and see it, as soon as it hits your cinema!
Sony recently unveiled it’s new addition to the HDSLR market with the Magnesium Alloy Body NEX-5. The camera uses Sony E-Mount lenses with an additional adapter to take larger Sony Alpha Zeiss Design Lenses. The APS-C sensor should work well for video work. However the tiny body will make it hard to keep this little sucker steady. Here are some of the Specs for the camera. At least it shoots 1080 HD. Click Here For Sony’s Take on the NEX-5
▪ 14.2 megapixels Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor
▪ ISO range from ISO 200 to 12800
▪ Movie recording (1920×1080i) in AVCHD format
▪ Continuous burst speed up to 2.3fps (7fps in Speed Priority)
▪ 3-inch Wide XtraFine TruBlack (921k dots) tilt-able LCD
▪ Anti-dust System

Nice! But only 720p and motion jpeg, but this will be the next step; Compact cams that can shoot video as well as DSLR.
