the article seems to be way too vague to be a genuine report :p

I think that's "for real" Sony, isn't it?

But what about the "17p"? I want my 17p! Sure, it's 7 p's less than the Panasonic, but it's a step in the right direction...

I gotta tell you that those web sites look just a bit too cheap with just a few two many graphics mistakes.

I still feel that this is a hoax. A nifty hoax but a hoax all the same.

But I've been wrong before.

The folks on the WEVA forum who are part of the Sony camera committee haven't mentioned anything about this. I'll have to ask them directly and see what they say.

Mike, how do you explain the various file links to press releases on Sony's website(s) in that case?

It's real. Go to sony.com, and you can get to sony europe from there, so that pretty much authenticates it.

It's totally legit. Here's a link to the announcement about the VX2100:

Boyd, it is possible to fake all of that. I'm not saying that is true but look at the Sony European web site. It looks like trash compared to any other Sony site. Monochrome, words and numbers cut off.

I know this type of scamming is possible, even Amazon and other companies have been hit by this level and sophistication of spoofing.

I'd feel more certain that these are real products if I found the press release on the main Sony site. In fact I've not seen a real press release. Nor mention of it in sony docs on IBC. Just raises flags.

I don't care if they have new cameras or not. Most of us wouldn't walk across the street for the new goodies if we already owned a 2000 or a 150.

But it sure is entertaining, eh?

You're making this more difficult than it needs to be.

Go to www.sony.com.

Click on "global home"

Click on the Europe continent.

Click on the word "Europe" and it will take you to www.sony-europe.com, which is where the VX2100 announcement is hosted.

The announcements have all been Europe-based and for PAL cameras so far, which is why Sony USA doesn't have any info on it. But just because it isn't USA doesn't mean it's not legit.

For those say that I was wrong:

http://www.sonybiz.net/cgi-bin/bvisa...734&OID=117936

I don't know if the link will work, but if it doesn't, go to http://www.sonybiz.net/, then, in "lastest news", click on "Sony Unveils Innovation in Workflow for DVCAM Production, Networked Production Environments, Live Production and HDCAM World at IBC 2003"

You will read this:

"At IBC 2003, Sony enhances its unique versatile DVCAM product line-up with the DSR-PD170P a hand held 3CCD DVCAM Camcorder following customer feedback. The affordable compact camcorder is the successor to the DSR-PD150P and offers better video and audio quality than previous models and is easy to use making it applicable for event, corporate, broadcast and filmmaking scenarios.

The 1/3 inch 3CCD DSR-PD170P will be available to European customers from December 2003 and features: a zoom lever and record start/stop button on a larger sized handle, a larger viewfinder, 2.5 inch hybrid LCD panel and lens hood for the use of Wide Conversion Lens VCL-HG0758 as standard all contained in a stylish two-tone colour unit. "

My infos were good !
