I haven't heard. Perhaps Robin Liss or the Chuckmeister knows.

LOL... Is it that time again? I forgot to check my calander...

No offense intended to the original poster. We just hear that one so often, it has become an inside joke.

Yeah, no offense intended either. Y'know...maybe they'll announce a new one at NAB....Hmmm...wonder what they'll call it...Sony used to put an A after the upgrades. Then they started adding 100 (BVW300...300A...400...400A, etc.). But with the DVCAMs they did an L1 (as in DSR500WS/L1) for the first upgrade...then they started adding 70 instead of 100--DSR570, 370, although they did an A for the PD100A. No real consistency there--they even turned it into a PDX10 for the next upgrade.

So...will the new PD150 be a PD170? Or maybe a PD150A. Or a PDX15? Or something totally ridiculous, like a PDX170A? And will it have 30 frame progressive? Will it have 1/3" 16:9 chips? Will this post start a whole new chain of rumors?

I've chimed in on this one many times. Sony does have a new consumer camera, the PC300. It has single 1/3" CCD with 3 Mpixels for stills and 2M pixels for video. It does progressive (rate not specified, but 30p assumed) and native 16:9. It also has the 14-bit ADC. I don't think it does HDV...actually I'm pretty sure it doesn't. Although the CCD has enough resolution to support 1080i.

Is it possible the VX3000/PDX15 will be out in September? Unlikely. That close, a leak is certain. NAB 2004? I wouldn't bet against it. It will nearly certainly have three of the PC300's chips similar to the PDX10 having 3 of the same chips found in the PC105.

Will it have 24p? TBD...but Pansonic definitely put that out there. And I sure Sony doesn't want to leave that hole in a camera that will be sold for 2-4 years.
