Sony PDW-EX1

Sony XDCAM EX, Sony PDW-EX1 previewed in the Technofile by MC Rebbe the Rapping Rabbi

Yesterday, at a press conference at IBC in Amsterdam, Sony formally announced the specifications and pricing of its new PDW-EX1 camcorder.

First previewed six months ago at NAB in Las Vegas, as the XDCAM EX, it has since become one of the most hotly anticipated and talked about video cameras of all time…and here’s why…in a nutshell, it’s a true HD (1920 x 1080) 3 chip camera, that records native 24p (23.98) direct to memory cards, has a real lens with full manual control and is badged Cine Alta (as used on Sony’s ultra high end digital cinema products), yet it is roughly the size and form factor of a Sony Z1…and is affordable!

Adobe Creative Suite 2.0 (Exclusive Preview)

Adobe  Creative Suite 2.0 exclusive preview in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiA few weeks ago Adobe invited me to a very exclusive breakfast presentation at The Soho Hotel in London. Since, it started at 9.30a.m and I don’t get out of bed for less than ten billion, I stayed out and partied all night, which was hardly a sacrifice, but which did leave me feeling a little peckish.

No problem I thought, as my limo drew up at the doors of the Soho, I’ll have breakfast when I get inside. If only…no bagels, no smoked salmon, no cream cheese…not even any champagne.
