Amazing night shot

of the train where the box car lettering appears under the light. Almost looks like a weird Tim Burton thing. Batman in Quebec. This camera may be a pain in the butt, but some great art will be made with it both before and after better HDV cameras hit the scene.
Regards, Alan

Sony hasn't made a big deal of it ....

apparently this is an upgrade to a very successful camera line.

I have Sony's and I have Canon's. I really like the Sony's low light capabilities.

New Panasonic's look great, the rest (JVC, etc..) I am not so sure about.

I think we will see a new seperate Sony camera line come out for the HD and 24f crowd. I don't think the PD-150 is supposed to be the next latest and greatest.

After 3-4 years of selling the PD 150, I think Sony has hit a homerun with it. Small upgrades here and there keep the PD 150/170 line comparable and competitive.

I am not in the market for a new camera, however, I would test a PD170 before I bought anything else. I just can't say enough about low lighting.

Important to mention- My Sony's are dear to me because they are the tools of my trade. However, on many occasion my kids are doing something I want to video. I always grab the PD150 before the GL2 because I rarely have to light the room or area.

Thanks for the comments on the church shot Alan, I was very astunished myself while shooting it. This camera has some impressive qualities... It never ceases to amaze me... I am a believer now, I have been since I saw the footage from Paul, I was then pretty sure this camera could "kick ass" and give me the image I am looking for. It did not take much testing to confirm that...

The upgrade from the PD150 to PD170 seems a lot like the upgrade from the Canon GL1 to GL2. The granddaddy upgrade is going to happen, though, and I think you'll se at a minimum 16x9 CCDs and 24p/30p/60i, at least I really hope that becomes standard issue.

has anyone heard of when Sony or Canon plan on introducing their HDV cams? If, so when will they hit the market?
