Sony is definitely appealing to the ENG market with this. With US HD news affiliates popping up like popcorn, it's no doubt these cameras might do the trick.

Don't know about Canada though...

"Lenses from the popular Digital SLR a System from Sony can also be used with a special adaptor" , that's nice, i wonder how those lenses would behave

Canon XL-H1 and JVC GY-HD250 have new competition

"1/3 3ClearVid CMOS Sensor"

Does this mean a single 1/3 inch sensor? Or three of them?

Three of course.

What's interesting is the native 25p mode (I read it as opposed to the 25PsF as per the V1E). Should US models arrive, would they only offer "native" 30p per analogy, or 24p with pull-down as well?

I wonder if Sony might have been influenced by a certain Italian videographer hacking the front of his FX1 and substituting still-camera lenses.

Looking at the pictures here:

http://ibc.mikkowilson.com/2007photo...ay/index_1.htm

there are 3 rings on the handheld model lens, and rotating handgrip is there like with the EX1 (the tape compartment being relocated).

Can someone explain how 4-ch audio recording is accomplished?
I didn't think that was in the HDV spec.

Four-channel audio recording has been part of the HDV specification since Canon first introduced it as one of the features of the XL H1 back in September 2005. As one of the HDV consortium members, Canon added Frame mode and four-channel audio to the HDV spec (it's flexible that way).

It's the same amount of bandwidth as two-channel audio, except it's divided four ways instead of two ways. It works out to 192kbps per both stereo pairs in four-channel, as opposed to 384kbps in two-channel audio. Hope this helps,

Perhaps, but many news outlets won't even consider using cameras with 1/3 sensors. They want 2/3 because of the wide variety of scenarios the cameras have to operate in with available light.

Have to say, those are some good looking cameras and are taking the HDV format much further than I would have imagined.

Well, there's always XDCAM HD...

And so it begins....

Interchangeable lenses on handheld prosumer cameras? Well, I bet it would be safe to say that a whole new class of prosumer models will be on the way for next year?
