Sony announces new DCR-HC1000

Thought I would have seen something about this in here already, but....

Sony announced on Wednesday that the DCR-HC1000 would be coming to the USA in August. This camera is supposedly the replacement for the TRV950.

Press release is here :

Seems that the only significant innovation is the rotating handle. Aside from that it seems much the same as the TRV950, but with a better 16:9 and, according to Sony, better low-light.

here's a thread:

An article on yahoo about HD cameras

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...1739&ncid=1729

This was part of article.

"Sony, too, has just announced a camera capable of recording at full 1080i, 60 frames per second, but we still don't know when it will be available."

None of this is cheap, and it isn't likely to find its way into a local multiplex soon. Fraunhofer is providing licenses to the technology itself for between $10,000 and $15,000. But it also needs powerful computing hardware and the--for today--extremely expensive array of speakers that can ring the production space.
Way too expensive. Cool technology must be affordable. Simply because you "can" do something by throwing a lot of resources at it doesn't mean it is feasible for the mass market. I'm not even sure theaters would want to attempt this seeing as how it requires more speakers and yet another format to contend with.

I wish'em luck. They'll need it.

They are playing catch up with MS. Windows already has lossless sourround sound capabilities and it doesn't cost anything more than equipment if you don''t already have it. The WMV format for both sd and HD will probably be certified for general use in set top boxes later this year or early next year. The royalties for WMV are significantly lower than those for Mpeg2,dolby and dts. It's already being put into DVD players from vinc.com and others.


PLus Apple is planning on supporting the full mpeg4 (v7) spec.

Divx is getting some market share also.

Too little to late.

I think you guys are not reading the the article carefully enough.

First of all, this is nothing like the standard surround tech (mpeg, wmv, dolby dts) at all.

Those surround are speaker dependent. For example - if you are watching Spiderman in a theater and Spidey swings up and and right over your head, the standard surround techs will pan sound to the side speakers at 50% - so you hear it coming from the side, not over you head and if you are sitting left/right instead of center, it will sound like he's moving left/right as the volume will be louder. Then they will pan to back surround (if they have them) and it will sound behind you.

That's pretty unrealistic.

This new system maps the speakers, sound mix, and your seating location in the theater and sends different sounds to different seats in the theater. The result is everywhere hears Spidey swing over up the screen, center, and along the ceiling to back of the theater, no matter if they are sitting front and center or crammed in the back corner seat.

This is impossible with any surround technology today - that's a huge revolution in surround sound reproduction. Expect IMAX etc to look hard at this. And don't be surprised if PC game technology takes a hard look at it as well. And then it could trickle down to big movies theaters (they always need ways to persuade people to see it their instead of home).

A legend passes on . . .

Henri Cartier-Bresson dies at 95. He was one of the most influential photographers of the last 100 years. He could also be considered the father of modern photojournalism. The BBC story is here. the video is here.

To see what all the fuss is about, you can take a look at some of his photos at Magnum Photos, which Mr. Cartier-Bresson himself founded long, long ago.

Yep. iirc, he used a 35mm Leica and a 28mm lens only. Or some similar combination. One of the greatest.

As a kid, I worshipped my oversized, softcovered edition of MOMA's Family of Man exhibition, which contained ten of Henri Cartier-Bresson's photographs.
