I have read through this thread and Sony's press release, but I don't see the difference between these two camcorders. Is one supposed to have CCDs with a Fujinon lens while the other has a Canon lens?

Artist Impression vs Concept Mockup...

All subject to change at the manufacturers whim.

There's so many differences between the artists rendition & the mockup, it's ridiculous :)

It seemed pretty far along this morning when I played with it: http://studiomusic.free.fr/jour%203/MoiEtEX.jpg
Fit and finish were very good. The focus and zoom were a little clicky though.

Now if it would just turn on... and we could purchase it in the shops... I'd be REALLY happy.

(Please Sony, don't water down the features before it gets to sale).

Panasonic could still be a big force if they release a successor to the HVX200 with bigger imagers and the 100mbps AVC codec.
I’m going to also add that this portable recorder should not only have a memory card slot for immediate transfers to an XDCAM disc but also to standard Blu-Ray discs so that you can play it on your Blu-Ray player.

It wouldn’t be too expansive because it wouldn’t need a built in LCD screen. While having the device hooked up to the XDCAM EX, you view the material off the camera’s LCD screen.


Since Sony is only indicating that it’ll be priced below 8,000 dollars, I think their waiting to see what Panasonic has in the works so I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony releases it for 7,000 dollars with a 16 gig card.

One thing that appears to be missing over the bigger XDCAM HD cams is the 4 channel audio.

I would love to have 4 channel audio - even if it's stereo from the built-in mic plus two XLR inputs..

Yup true.

Im going to be very interested in the development of this cameras lens, i said to myself when i bought my z1 that it'd be last fixed lens i ever bought and the next camera was going to have real glass (ala pdw350 or dsr450), and after working with panny SPX800s on OB's for the past 6 months I still am trying to stick to that comment.

However, if we can get some real stops on this lens.. the fixed aspect might not be so much of an issue.

My sentiments, too.

I'm still intrigued by the "release" button near the record trigger...

Well, if that's the case then I must say the top one looks a lot nicer than the one on the bottom.

I agree, The top one looks very nice, the bottom one looks like a digital back with a lens attached
