Still, we all know that Sonys V1u was released for over $4,000 and it didnt do bad at all. I still think Sony should have released it for less.

As far as lowlight capabilities compared to cameras with 1/3 chips, big deal. I mean, it can get through more places than the bigger camcorders and once you take off the microphone, it can look consumer-ish which may get you less noticed in some situations. Its also much lighter. I see it as a tradeoff rather than a disadvantage.
For $2,995. it would be revolutionary, and still be "under $4000." It would be a recession-buster price. And for the 700, $5,995. would be awesome.

Yes I'm seriously considering this camera as well, and everybody is quite right, some sample footage would be fantastic, pretty much the only thing for me now that will allow me to make a decision to invest in the camera or not.

And it would be better to be original media from the cards.
QT and .iso. Just 10-20 seconds will do.

My guess is at least an Intel iMac.

since it will be recorded in .mov one should be able to edit on any machine that fits the specs for FCS2.

I can tell you that 35mbps 1080p struggles to maintain a constant frame rate on a 2.16Ghz Duo Core 2 Macbook with 1GB of Ram. 720p does better but the real issue is 35mbps bottlenecking with slow (5400RPM) hard drives or a slow-connection to an external drive (USB2.)
Of course dropped frame during editing doesn't affect the ultimate ability to edit XDCAM EX 35mbps on a low-end Mac, it just makes it a frustrating process.

If I judge from EX-1 files with my own Quad Core Q6600 and 4GB of ram (now I have 8) and using first Liquid and now Media Composer, I could say that those files are very very easy edited with a medium strength PC. I have tried with over 4 hours timelines and with 10 layers with two FX each. Everything went RT. About Mac I have no clue.

i agree with george - i use edius 5 on an average PC and it chomps up long gop mpeg2 with ease - sounds like FCP users love a hard time - more i hear about FCP the more i am glad i have a PC.

I don't know about XDCAM, but my G5 (with 2.5 RAM) did just fine with DVCPRO HD footage. Correct me if I am wrong, but the bite rate in this one is somewhere in range 50mbps?
