    It's 1080p/24pN and 1080i/24p

    Gotta read the entire article some mores. But, we have no idea if that's the same as the Sony EX-1's Full 1080p frame. We really hope so.

    Being that it's still 1/3" CCDs, should we expect any difference in resolution? Namely, can it ever compete with the resolution the EX-1 outputs?

    While all of this was expected since last year, and aggressively requested many months before that, the mixed emotions and mood swings surrounding its innevitable announcement haven't changed.

    The HMC150 simply doesn't generate the same intensity or excitement that most people shared when the DVX or HVX was released.
    It's like the HMC150 will be receiving the "middle child" treatment.
    But hey, at least it doesn't appear bastardized like the HMC70.

    I rarely express sympathy for an inanimate object, but the HMC70 really deserves some pity.
    How does a re-housed consumer camera that was initially set to debut under $2 grand end up 6 benji's over and remain underwhelming?
    Panasonic must have the answer because it appears they went out of their way to appeal to the market segment that buys out of guilt for uninspired ingenuity and overpriced technical underachievements.
    There really is nothing more to say about that camera, the silence that enveloped the thread started on it yesterday is a clear enough indicator.

    Assuming Canon continues to play it safe, all eyes are now officially turned to the upcoming Scarlet announcement.

    Who says it only shoots 1080i? That's not correct. The press release says 1080/24p Native. No interlace, no pulldown, no flags, no anything. Just straight-up 1920x1080 at 24 fps. (actually I'm guessing on that 1920 part, because AVC-HD supports both 1920x1080 and 1440x1080 and we don't know which profile they've chosen, but I have to assume it's 1920...)

    The HMC is perfect for thoes that need HD with long record times, and no tapes. Wedding shooter, event documentation, ETC.

    I will Certainly buy this camera. it will let me shoot HD dance performances and long form recordings on "cheap" media, like an SD card that the Client can keep.

    Infact if it at least matches the HVX200 for resolution, even if its slightly under, it will still be awesome.

    If there's no HVX upgrade announcement and nothing from Canon Camp it's either this or Scarlet.

    I'll be happy to give up my HVX in exchange for a Full 1080p frame with less noise. Err, well, as long as there's at least as much HVX resolution.

    Wow.

    It seems like these guys dont shoot too much.... Or worry too much about gear. I stopped caring what camera i shot on after shooting real film....

    But i think this DVX replacement is VERY cool.....

    I wonder if they realize that the image posted was the same one posted months ago? Prototype maybe?

    Tsk tsk. Some people just aren't all that bright.

    It spoils you. The first time you see your stuff projected, you forget about all that pixel counting.

    About time the DVX had a successor. I just hope it captures color the way the DVX does. Can't wait for NAB.
