Sweet.

There are a lot of us early HDV adopters here that are very happy right now.

It's been a long haul, but we're finally going to get what we've wanted....full manual controls on a 3-chip HDV camera! The "Pro" version will be under $7,000 too! It's almost $3,000 more than I've ever paid for a camera, but I am going to do it.

I have a JVC HD10U that will be for sale in the "first quarter of 2005".

SONY UNVEILS WORLD’S FIRST HDV 1080i CONSUMER CAMCORDER

http://news.sel.sony.com/pressrelease/511

It's an official now in U.S.

Sony likes to sell consumer model like VX1000 first, then PD150. It's same marketing strategy. Pro-sumer model has XLR.

Panasonic will introduce HD-P2

What will "pro" version have??

Ok, now I have a question in regards to all the specs out there now on this new HDV camera from Sony.

Anyone have any idea what the "pro" version will have? This HDV camera seems to have quite a bit for the money. I just read that the "pro" version will have XLR connections, but that can't justify $3,000?? My guess is "Optical" disc harddrive on-board or some other major thing that this camera doesn't have on it.

Any else have a guess? I'm really curious as to what the "pro" will have...someone has to know??

HDV 1080i

A/D converter: 14bit A/D. 14bit DXP improved to 14bit HD DXP digital analogue to digital converting is 120% faster than DCR-VX2100. 信号処理速度を20%アップ(DCR-VX2100比)させました。16,384 color range of dynamic are clear as balck is black and white is pure white. 階調の緻密(ちみつ)な表現により、低照度下や黒い被写体を撮影する際のノイズを低減。また、高輝度撮影時 の白トビを抑制し、高精細な映像を忠実に再現します。that they are saying; you can shoot what you can see it and will appears on a HD screen.
Truth is: I haven't tried this one. I'm an user of DVW-700-750-900F.
I'll report to you my first impression of this little one after my first experience.
