    Sony has annouced 2 new HDV cameras similar to the FX1 and Z1 - Possibly as replacements (datails to come).
    They have only realeased deatails on the European models, which include apparent true 25P image capture. There are no details on the US models at this time. Whether they will support 30P, 24P or both is UNKNOWN.

    The cameras are the HVR-V1E ("prosumer") and the HDR-FX7E ("consumer")


    ( http://www.sony.jp/CorporateCruise/Press/200609/06-0907/ )

    The new Sony HDV cameras are beeing discussed in multiple threads across the board.

    The V1: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=70244
    The FX7: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=70205


    I will be visiting the Sony stand at IBC to see what details I can get in person. Any questions I should be asking the reps?

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, ASK WHAT SIZE THE IMAGE SENSORS ARE?

    I'm reading 1/4" sensor size for the FX7, and hoping the V1E has 1/3" size chips. No one seems to know or (strangely) care.

    Thank you.

    Thanks a lot, xray.

    Both cams? Not to be rude, but where did you find this out? It is confirmed, right?

    Thanks for the news, Mikko.

    Wouldn't these possibly be both PAL and NTSC in one cam (i.e. 25P and 24P, etc.), and having only minor differences between US and European models?
    Sony has been one of the only companies to somewhat provide cams that are multi format...well, there's Pana's HDX900 too of course...

    Where does it say this?

    I'd read 1/4" before, and the field of view matches what one would expect from 1/4".

    According to this press release, it does seem to be 3-chip ClearVid CMOS ... although no specification on actual CMOS size ...

    It's 1/4". The Camcorderinfo interview said 1/4" (not that that's exactly authoritative) but then the published specifications for field of view match with what you'd get from 1/4".

    Camcorder info was talking about the fx-7. We want to know the image-senser size of the "HV-1".

    @Mikko. Thanks man. Please also get the expected prices for both the cams, and by when they will be available. What editing solutions are possible, or will be available. Sample images are always welcome. Ofcourse, as always, watch out for the noise!

    @JohnTrent: We do care about the sensor size, very much infact. We were just waiting for IBC to get the answers.
