Sony PMW-EX Rental
The Sony PMW-EX3 is a compact camcorder that records high quality high definition images onto Sony SxS cards. The camera records in XDCAM EX format which offers 35 megabytes per second and 1920 x 1080 recording.
The EX3 is normally supplied for rental with a Fujinon half-inch wide angle 14x 5.8 lens (equivalent to 31.4mm on a 35mm lens). It also available with a ½-inch to 2/3-inch lens adaptor so that it can take 2/3-inch lenses used on larger camcorders.
It offers a full range of frame rates in 1080 lines: 23.98P, 25P, 29.97P, 50i and 59.94i
In SP mode, 25 mbps, it records at 1440 x 1080 resolution (compatible with HDV)
59.94P and 50P progressive recording is available in 1280 x 720 mode
The frame rates are as listed above but note that in the NTSC country settings what the menu says is slightly different than the actual frame rate. This is shown below:

The EX3 can also shoot in slow and fast motion – but only in progressive settings and slow motion is only possible in 720/23.98P, 720/25P and 720/29.97P. In 1080P mode, it can shoot from 1 to 30 frames per second and, in 720P mode, it can shoot from 1 to 60 frames per second. So depending on the frame standard, this means you can shoot fast motion in either 720P or 1080P but you can only shoot slow motion if you’re in 720P mode. The slow and fast motion images can be played back immediately after shooting.
