Sony's FX-1 -- Links!

I found these and want to share:

http://www.sonybiz.net/cgi-bin/bvisa...EY=ssw-hdvhubE

Official brouchure:

http://www.sonybiz.net/cgi-bin/bvisa...ORDER0904E.pdf

They actually say "DVCAM" on the brochure! If you read the fine print it says, "a step up from DVCAM".

If you read the Q&A section it mentions that the HDV camera is for the low-budget filmmaker. So, that puts that to rest....it's target audience IS filmmakers. (however, it does mention other target markets too)

Also:
http://news.sel.sony.com/hdvcamcorder/

Check out the "High Resolution Images" - they are HUGE, but unbelieveably clear on my 23" Cinema. It looks like I can reach in and touch the damn thing!! I wish I could!

Official "contacts" for the HDV camera. Heath, can you interview them for us like you did the "Open Water" guys???

I've got the "HDV Camcorder" PDF file, and the "HDV Contacts" PDF if anyone wants it....the links are dead, but Murph's downloaded files are alive and well! :)

Okay- very cool.
I'm looking at the info, and seee that it mentions' "Cinegamma," and "cinerate."
Does that mean that it shoots 24p? Why dont they just say that? Anyone know?

I second that. Does it shoot 24p, 24pa and or 30p? Does it have a 1/48th shutter speed setting?

It's strictly interlace; no progressive scan on this camera.
