HVR-Z1P successor?

Is there one planned anytime soon - as so to be in congruence with the new release of the HD200 - etc?

If Sony haven't announced anything, then anyone "in the know" couldn't say anything. Therefore, not sure what you're expecting from folks. There have been rumors of a Z1 replacement for nearly a year now, and none of them have been correct.

Would the V1 be seen as an 'upgrade' to it?

No. Sony have been very explicit that the V1 is *not* a replacement for the Z1.

But it improves on it in so many ways - so is just a higher model?

No, it's not a higher model. It's a *different* model. Just like the HC3, the FX1, the A1, the HC1, and the FX7. Just different. Not higher, and in many ways, lesser.

Totally agree with DSE. The V1 is not an upgrade and is certainly not a replacement or a better model than the Z1. They are different cameras.

I'd get an HVX200, but if I didn't have the money for one (or a few) and it's workflow I would probably opt for either a Z1 or A1. You'll be happy with any one of those... unless you have a specific need, like over/under cranking.

What's wrong with the Z1? Any reason why the Z1 wouldn't work with your productions? It's a fantastic camera. If you have the cash, a HVX200 would be my next suggestion - but it is a lot extra once you figure everything in...
