  1. Great to see the XDcam optical disc camera lives on. I was worried the disc system would be dropped for the SxS card systems. I have to say as a Camera owner operator, I love that when wrap is called all I have to do is eject the disc and head on home – No data to wrangle after a long day shooting.

    The sensor makes problems.
