Did panasonic estimate $6K? I would expect Sony to be close to that. But Sony doesn't even know yet, so we certainly don't know. It depends in part what else comes to the market before Sony.

Are you guessing or did you hear that? That is exactly what I want to hear. Exactly the kind of chip I hope this has.

EDIT: also what about that huge lens and rail system? Is that just a mock up of a kitted out camera or does all that come with it?

Another little thing, doesn't look like it has a microphone (the nub of the front looks too small to be a mic), just the holder for an external on the side.

I doubt that it's the same chip as in the F35. Wouldn't that be too expensive for the intended price point for this camera?

$19000?

Sony PL (Z35) Film and Digital Times: Blog
According to Jon Faouer's blog the price is $19 000 which positions the camera against Red. IMO, this could sport a dedicated video sensor (CCD?) and not a DSLR derivative, and the codec could be XDCAM with even RAW thrown in.
It also makes sense market wise because Sony will have to solutions, one above Panny's and one below with the upcoming NEX camcorder with similar to Pany's characteristics (essentially both are still camera derivatives) but presumably with a lower price.

Now if they can throw in some wi fi for wireless control and video monitoring that will make my day.

Any speculation on what type of recording format this camera will use? Will it be sdhc cards, sxs cards, tape or some other format? Any ideas?

It they're going up against the RED One, the camera will need a higher end codec (10bit 4:2:2 ?). It's unlikely to use tape because a VTR is expensive. Hopefully the viewfinder is good quality, otherwise you could be into accessories, which brings the price up..
