Crippled how? Is there another $3,000 HD camera with more features?

The CF24 mode is crippled. It's mentioned earlier in this thread.

I think Canon has already missed their chance to get very far with a 'GLH1,' and they'll really miss the mark if their MSRP for such a product is over $4000. But it would be nice to see them at least try to give Sony a run for their money, which Panasonic and JVC have apparently decided not to do.

That's usually the thing Sony does best. They're big enough to make mistakes, sure, (Micro MV) while at the same time pushing the envelope for all of us.

If Sony wanted to push it they would do a Z1U or FX2 with real 24p.

Not if they stuck with the same CCD -- that is, if it's true that the CCD is interlace only (which, frankly, I never believed).

I'm going to make an educated guess that Sony will bring out a 3CMOS 1080p HDV cam this year, maybe SOON this year. Called FX2 or maybe HC7.
Maybe at NAB. Also am expecting Canon to bring somethign interesting to NAB.

Sure, Sony could even use 3 of the CMOS chip used in the HC1. My understanding is that CMOS chips are inherently configurable to operate progressively. But Sony has shown great resistance to implementing progressive scanning and true 24-fps operation (as opposed to the abomination known as CF24) at the consumer level. Because the popularity of JVC's HD100 and Panasonic's HVX200 has demonstrated the market demand for 24p-capable cameras, Sony may change its position. But I wouldn't hold my breath.
