I got an EX1 right when it first came out and shot a feature on it, we were all amazed at the quality. Coming from a Z1U, this was a whole new ballgame. Even though i now use a C100, i miss the EX1 in many ways...
-14x zoom with CONSTANT f1.9 aperture
-1/2" sensor is a big boost from typical 1/3"
-Hi-res LCD looks great in even direct sun
-Battery lasts a good long time
-Good low light ability, even high gain looks more like grain than noise
-Sharp, true 1080 resolution(beats the pants off most DSLR video)
-Speaking of DSLRs, the EX1 can do some very nice 'shallow' DOF!
-Built in lens cap
-Best focus peaking i've ever used
-Robust codec despite being only 35mb
-Great 'sony' color/image
-rotating hand grip
whats not to like?
-A bit heavy
-Rotating hand grip sticks out, making for awkward handling
-SXS is expensive, but SD cards adapters fix this beautifully
-No cheap battery alternatives(just suck it up and buy the real thing)
Did i mention it's reliable as a tank? and built like one too. i've held my fair share of cameras, and even well made ones sometimes feel plasticity. The EX1 feels great all around, and it just works.
Huge sensors are all the rage now, but despite my love for my C100, there's no replacement for a great ENG lens like the one on the EX1, 14x f1.9 constant is just amazing. And you CAN get shallow depth of field with that. at f1.9, and with just a slightly longer focal length and/or close subject, you can start to get a very pleasing background blur. No it's not the silly total blur you get from DSLRs, but guess what? i hate that. I like just a bit of blur to get my subject to pop out of the background. Your preference may vary.
Sony will have to go a long way to better this baby!
Focus is dead-on accurate, image quality is superb, battery life on the standard battery could be better, and plan for plenty of storage for offloading recorded media.
