The 350 was already introduced. The announcement tomorrow is for something else.
EDIT: too slow...

350 with 2/3.5" sensors? You know how Sony likes incremental changes.

With my budget right now, I'm hoping for a really big announcement in the cybershot dept.

So I guess Sony doesn't think that AVCHD is strictly a consumer format any longer.

Now all we need is the price. I'm not so sure it'll be nearly as cheep as the HMC150.

There should be a camera test between this, the EX1 and the Panasonic HMC40 in good lighting.

[Good news for the Z1/Z7 crowd that have been waiting for a "tapeless" replacement.

Not a lot of new tech. 1/3 inch chips, same as in Z5, no tape drive, Avchd. Non-interchageble lens in this model. But a lot of frame rates, including 60p for slowmotion potential. The 7D does that too, though at $ 1,700. You would think to be competitive it will come in under in the 3k range... but this is Sony... I am guessing about $ 4200 MSRP.

Um, pretty cool... waaay out of my Christmas tree league... oh well... maybe if they do an "NFX" version for the prosumer!

Since it sounds like a Z5 core, maybe they'll have something like the FX1000 for the new economy class?

And I guess if this was "it", we won't see a GH1/5DMk2/7D competitor... sigh.

Close to what I expected. Wish it had big hard drive and no mention of if the sensors are the 'R" variety like the XR500/520. The price really has to be close to the competition of HMC150.

Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can say that it has a few other goodies. It's got one heck of a high res view finder. Has image flip capability for those using DOF adapters, over/under crank, etc.

There will be more info coming along, I am going from memory of the powerpoint I saw a month or so back.

I have been hanging on to my FX1 hoping that something like this would appear as the image from my XR500 and even the SR11 is very good. With the HMC150 gaining popularity Sony needed to come out with some competing product. The obvious starting point was the Z5 and upgrade the recording section. Can't wait to see if I can afford it!!!! Though they will miss the boat if its too different from the HMC150.
