Is this going to be a more logical way to merge video and DSLR?

1. it only shoots interlaced
2. it has a 14 mp sensor, meaning that the video is still downsampled (like the dslrs), so resolution won't be as good (I would guess) as a dedicated HD camcorder. Happy to be proved wrong on this, though!
Wonder if anyone will make a housing for it?

I'm excited to play with the camera, and expect it will be as good as anything shooting 24mbps avchd. Allegedly no line skipping, so performance should be better than most hd-dslr.

I can't believe that Sony pipped Canon to the post on this one. I still think a full blown Canon camcorder based on their HDSLR technology is going to be a killercam, but this is certainly a step in the right direction it seems from Sony.

Sony's spec and website.
I was quite impressed with the anti motion blur feature. Not a panacea but nice to have.
And don't count out Canon... you'll like what you'll be getting in about 6 months!

I don't think they used any of the sound actually recorded on camera in the demo video. The optics look good (zooming will be difficult...like the 14-140mm on the Panasonic GH1). But notice the strange bokeh in the tele shots...reminds me of mirror lens donuts.
24 mbps AVCHD is passe. Hacked GH1's are now doing 35 to 45 mbps AVCHD, and wonderfully clean MJPEG @ 105 mbps 4:2:2:
The Panasonic GH2 is the dark horse to watch out for, hopefully later this year.

I'm sticking to the EX1 for now with the option of nanoflash as this is good enough for broadcast so good enough for me or if not ... HIRE
