maybe JVC is not going to show the "CMOS" 2/3 camera because the chips are not really out yet??? I for one have been waiting for the Altasense chips for a while for our HD 4:4:4 12bit 1080p cam.... but then again we are still working on how to save that HUGE amount of data we will be dealing with!

Looks like it's going through after all, the $20,000 camera:

Actually, I was wrong, that's the sub-$10,000 HD100 that we're talking about, also the FX1/Z1 killer I first mentioned.

It might be more likely to take out the DVX100A than the FX1/Z1. There are so many 24P lovers out there who by now may have developed brand loyalty towards Panasonic but at the same time likely don't have $60k+ for a Varicam . . . and the FX1/Z1's 1080i makes it pretty distinct from the JVCs' 720p, making the comparison sort of like flavors of ice cream.

That's a quite valid point. Actually, I believe Sony made that point when they introduced the FX1, saying something like "now consumers have a choice: they can have HD, OR they can have 24P." JVC seems to be saying "well, hold on -- you can have both!" Panasonic is also producing an HD/24P camera, so the range of choices should be expanded signficantly on April 18 for those who want HD.

based strictly on the information released so far. I think JVC has come up with a great camera for independent feature production, not an eng cam that movie makers have to adapt to their uses. Not a Sony killer either, and doesn't have to be.

Joe, that's the best I've heard yet!

I don't even want to BUY a camera, just rent. And I don't know WHICH camera I'm going to rent to shoot my next flick.
