I hope it is at least XL2 size, if not full size.

The camera is not HDV, it's HD.

Time for a new board?

Heck, a whole new category, for DVCProHD. We'll throw the VariCam in there too, I guess.

The only down side is Vegas users will probably have to switch to another nle to use it. FCP and Adobe already license the codec. I hope I'm wrong.

You know...I was just thinking that myself. I may have to switch from Vegas to FCP. Vegas is an odd NLE. It is rock solid, and easy to work with, but it doesn't have the "professional ambitions" of FCP or Premier.

Records to tape or P2? Good...You can start on the cheap with tapes, and as flash comes down in price, the P2 option will be more and more valuable. "future proofing" in a way.

Can a miniDV tape handle DVCPRO100, though?

Good question, I sure as heck would like to know the answer to that one. Anyone care to speculate?

DVCPro HD records at 5.4MBs, which is way beyond DV at 3.5MBs. So, standard MiniDV cassettes? I highly doubt it. However! You could probably pop in a DVCPro AJ-P66M cassette, which is a Mini, and then it would be able to record 66 minutes of plain DVCPro, or 33 minutes of DVCPro 50, or about 16 minutes of DVC Pro HD. How's that?

Interesting how we're all speculating that it'll have a Mini cassette chassis -- which I imagine is probably right; I can't see them putting a full-size cassette on something that's supposed to be small in form factor and under $10K.

Panasonic's press releases usually come out around the eve of NAB (April).

Jan Crittenden who is a project manager at Panasonic, said that the DVCPROHD video would be recorded to the P2 cards, and DVCPRO25/50 on a tape.

How about more leaks? Someone out there knows something. We need a picture. The hype needs to keep going. The what if stuff is going to get old. We need a few facts.

The thing is, Bob, even product managers like Jan are bound by their NDA's (non-disclosure agreements) not to release key information until they deem the time to be right. Then they'll announce a press release, probably right before NAB.
