What video cameras are you jumping? Can't Post

I am mostly interested in what -currently available- cameras folks are jumping.

If you have more than one, feel free to mark it as well.

Also, please feel free to expand on this survey by making a comment or two.

I'll start off the comments by saying that I'm jumping a current TRV22 and have a couple of TRV10s as backups, but I'm probably going to get another TRV22 in the very near future as a "second" camera for competition jumping.

Why another 22? Are the 10's failing, or is just the weight and size?

Yeah, actually my "good" 10 has become somewhat flakey and was already rebuilt at about the 3 year mark. It's 4-years old or so. The other 10 I got used about 2 years ago and it's pretty trashed. Not really sure how much longer I want to throw money after them.

$350ish to rebuild a 4-year-old 10 or $450ish for a new in box 22.

I think I just want to get another 22 and be done with it.

PC101.

I think that you've excluded the vast vast majority of non-pro jumpers from the poll. Most non-professionals use PC series cameras, and you've only listed the PC109, which has been out maybe 6 months max...

This makes the cameras such as the pc105, which is still being sold new due to existing stock levels, as an "old" camera.

Re: [mr2mk1g] What video cameras are you jumping? [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I'll admit I kinda cheaped out on the research on which to base the poll. I just went to the Sony web site and took the names of the ones posted there. Unfortunately, as I think we're all aware, Sony has a really bad habit of burning through their models. I think there have been some models that came to market and then went away in less than a year. I don't know what their R&D budget for stuff is, but I guess they make it up in volume.

I think they'd make more profit and it would be better for folks like us, if they had a slightly longer production run between these very minor upgrades.

Anyway, this is why I also wanted comments.

To my knowleged there have been the pc, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 100, 101, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107 108, 109, 110, 120, 330.

I probably missed some. Wink

Some I think were only sold in some countries - eg the pc2 and pc4 I think were only for Germany... don't quote me though.

Also oddly the 110 came long before the 109 Crazy

And I'm not sure what happened to the pc102...

Re: [quade] What video cameras are you jumping? [In reply to] Can't Post

Still using the trusty old TRV-8 and PC-1. I really really wish they still made them like this. Especially with EXTERNAL controls like fader, etc. I hate the idea of having to use the pop-out screen for editing while shooting.

Does anyone have a new TRV-8 in a box in the closet? Anyone....Frown
