any REALWORLD cameras out yet/soon? (NAB'05?)

I don't have a lot of time nowadays to mess around on here, so i guess i'm negligent for falling behind in my knowledge of the state of HD4:4:4 to HDD recording. Occasionally (once every 2 months) reading here tends to make me believe every project here is a little bit closer to completion each time, but no where near ready to launch to market.

I'll be attending NAB this year, wondering if anyone knows of any companies to look for (again, for the record-to-disc setups in the <$60k range). Kinnetta, Sumix, Silicon Imaging, Altasens.. none of these (the ones i expected to see) are on the NAB exhibitor booth list (although i haven't checked if they are presenting at any conferences).

So basically i'm curious if anyone here can save me some time looking for obscure articles/threads/pressreleases about "soon to be released" direct-to-disc or at least uncompressed-output HD setups. Even if it's just a rumor that some company might be working on something similar.. i'd like to hear about it.. because i know with 100% certainty, if i don't know ahead of time who to look for, there's no way i'll just happen to run across the right booths there, nab is far too huge, and cool little companies are far too easily obscured by the big-money booths (adobe, discreet, quantel, etc etc).

Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

(and on a side note, i'll be posting a full writeup along with a few hundred photos each day from nab, as i did last year.. i might bring an XL1 and post an hour of video or something if i'm feeling saucy)

Jeff Kreines should be around NAB.

He said the Kinetta will be shipping Q2 this year. So it's coming.

Also check out the new Panasonic and the JVC "ProHDV".
