I note from other illustrations -

http://www.dvuser.co.uk/content.php?CID=158 - about 1/4 way down page -

that the LCD slides fore and aft, which would lead me to conclude that a shoulder mount would be an option, or better still 'an excellent third party opportunity'.

I'm getting to like the look - it's a bit like the Aeron chair, form following function and all that, but I really hope Sony rethink the battery position - the whole rear panel in fact.

Currently it looks like the camera's wearing a fanny pack...

This camera was probably thought of as a 3 CMOS camera, on the camera's computer rendition, on the lower right side, you can see: "3CMOS" ...of course, the lens also says it's a Canon, and on the article below the picture, they say it's going to be a Fujinon...
Can't wait to see it at work!

My god this looks like it could be the dream camera for my film, but I'll never get it, I can barely afford a Canon A1 as it is.

You're right Bill, I won't say never. I'm gonna use this for my second feature in '09! Well, I'm gonna try really hard.

Anyone know if it's a fixed lens?

It will have a lens made by Canon or Fujinon (Fujinon being what the mock-up has). The prototype mock-up certainly has a "release" button on the servo handgrip... whether that's a lens release, and whether there would ever be any other lenses available for what certainly looks like a non-standard mount is another matter entirely!

It is most definitely a fixed-lens camera. The "release" button on the servo handgrip allows it to be rotated through 90 degrees. You can then position the handgrip at any angle that's comfortable for you to use.

Cool! That's a pretty nifty feature. Personally I'm not bothered about it being a fixed lens camera. I've owned and operated several full-sized Beta SP and DVCAM camcorders over the years, and they all spent 99% of their time with the same lens. Get yourself a redeye adaptor and you're sorted!

Nice! I'm surprised this type of ergonomics hasn't been implemented on other fixed lens cameras in the past. How difficult could it be?

This has been available for quite sometime on many Canon & Fujinon lenses.

It's not that easy to implement when there is a tape mechanism "inside" the grip, I guess.

There was an ugly sony a few years back, an hc1000 or something that had it, but it didn't go over well for the most part.
