I have just had a week and a half shoot for a very popular reality TV show. It was a big shoot with up to 16 Sony F800 XDcam cameras per day. We had a Super Techno crane, a Techno Crane and Jimmy Jib. It was a big setup and fun to shoot. I think it must have been among the biggest shoots ever done in Australia. The crew list was a who’s who of greatest technicians/ cameramen in Australia. It was good fun and a great experience. I can’t say which TV program it was as it hasn’t aired yet, But I am sure it will be a big hit when it goes to air.
XDB – the new Xdcam Browser software will be the same for both Mac and Windows. This still is early versions of the software so does not offer all the functionatity that the other Mac and PC version offer at this time.
It is great though to see Sony slowly releasing new version with improvements.
To download XD Browser V1.21 go to Sony
UPDATE : XD Browser V1.3 has been released
