Thanks Andy, good info.
Any camera that you have to put a tape in seems so archaic though!
And this "affordable" price point - what is that exactly - even a ballpark figure for an SRW9000 with option board to do 1080/60P?

Steve,

I know what you mean about tape, but for many it is very important to have such a high quality master out of the camera. With the SR memory option in the future you can record to memory and transfer the data back to SR tape for archive. The 5800 deck can be upgraded to do this, which means that investing in the tape deck now doesn't mean you are out of luck in the future.

The price point with all the boards in the camera and VF is under $100k. The body with new VF is just under $70k. This is about the price of the F900 when first released, and more affordable then a F23/F35.
