Should that price say 4800.00, and not 48,000?

Jason I'm certain that's just a simple typo.

Well, I dont know what the deal is with the whole 24p to 60i to 24p deal is, but if we can get full true 24p then I might have found me a new cam!

I have to admit, I like the smaller size and lighter weight of the V1U compared to the Canon A1/G1. And now it looks like it does 60P which the Canons only do 60i. But the Canons have a better lens range and the chips are 1/3" compared to 1/4". Dang, it's going to be tough deciding between these two.

that it will be. If the suggested price drops closer to the Canon $3,999 then it will not be as hard.

Didn't the Z1 drop in price after it was first announced?

Is there any pictures of the V1U? Is it the same as the V1e?

I don't know if this camera does a pulldown. The DVX100a, XL H1, etc., do the pulldown to 29.97.

I am curious if 1/4 inch CMOS is similar, better, worse than 1/3 inch CCD.

Externally it's the same as the V1E except for the markings of course.
