JVC GY-HD100U: JVC’s 720p, HDV camera with an interchangeable Fujinon lens, and TRUE 24P. Price: $5,500
Panasonic HVX200: Highly anticipated as DVX100 big brother, supports DVCPRO HD (100Mbps), 4:2:2 color space, and hopefully TRUE 24p. Expected price – about $6,000 without the P2 cards.
ARRIFLEX D-20: This is by all means the King of the jungle with its 35mm CMOS sensor, support for 3-60FPS, HDCAM SR support, etc. Price: $100,000+
I’m keeping my ear close to the ground for what SONY has to offer as well. You gottta admit it’s tough to keep up with SONY. They’ve introduced not one, not two, but FOUR HDV cameras. In addition they have probably 5 more HD cams between $5,000 and $100,000.
In other words, SONY gets its own round up of HD cams
