PMW 200

Post by Tor » September 28th, 2012, 9:04 pm

I just got the Sony PMW 200 delivered. But when I opened the box I realised that the card slot door was grey, not black. I read somewhere on the net (cant find it now) that Sony used the grey door on they’re pre-production cameras. Does that mean I bought a not fully developed camera? I have contact my dealer, but they cant give me any answer. And Sony cant give me any answer before I am registered with a “Prime Support nr”, witch my dealer is supposed to do for me (and they don’t know how to do it…).

Thak you for your attention!

The pre-production cameras did have a grey door, but that's because so to do the production units. The PMW-200 has a sliver door to differentiate it from the dark grey door on the PMW-150.

I think the silver door looks ugly, but it is correct and it is not a pre-production only feature.
