Based on their press releases, several foveon pixels can be configured to represent a single video pixel. AKA variable pixel video. If you think about it, that means their 10 million pixel chip can record 1080p with not problem. With oversampling and subpixel rendering to boot.

Wait and see. Hype by any other name is still hype.

With only $14 mil in market capitalization and a 52 week trading range between 3.75 and 0.35 they appear to be more of a hobby than a business to the financial markets. They may be big joo-joo to post production houses but that's far too narrow and shallow of a business to raise public capital these days.

When they all go "real time everything" (hopefully in my lifetime in DV)- then we're really in for a good time............but by then our mini-DV "tape" cameras will be ole' tech and the new disk drive portable 24FPS HD cams will be all the rage- of course they wont have real-time HD editing, they'll need to render and it starts all over again......

...isn't technology grand?

FCP Version 16 maybe????
(hahaha- smile guys- you only live once)

VariZoom for Panasonic DVX100

Just tested our new VariZoom control for the Panasonic DVX 100.

Model# Stealth-DVX

The controller is very different internally then our other controllers. The zoom control allows for very smooth ramping up and down whether going wide or telephoto. The new control allows for Zoom, pause, record.

We will have it available at Dv Expo West in our booth #118 the product will be shipping in early January.

News At L.A. DV Expo and NY Digital Video Show

I can just see Sony announcing VX3000 the day after I buy the VX2000--if they were to announce such a thing is the L.A. DV Expo Dec. 9-12 or the NY Digital Video Show in January 2003 likely places to do so??

No, no, no. Sony won't announce the VX3000 the day after you buy a VX2000.

They will probably cut the price by 30% though. That's what always happens to me.

The TRV950 / PDX10 is still too new. My guess is NAB 2003.

Rick and Chris, thanks for thoughts. I will be more than content with current generation VX2000 I am sure.
