Also do you think Sony will bring out a HD Camera with a similar body to the JVC JY HD100? i.e over the shoulder mount - interchangeable lens and functions like a larger format camera but smaller and in the £4k price range?

Second Question: Probably not under 4k, Sony markets themselves as a higher end brand name than Pannasonic and especially JVC. Sonys only fullsize hdv type solution is going to be the new HD XDCAM with 1/2inch ccds and recording only 1080i at 18-35 mbps onto the XDCAM discs,Price 20k.
I would be looking at Pannasonic to release some fullsize camera that records HD on P2 cards soon. I would imagine their whole line going to P2 in the next two years or so. They seem really gung ho about it. It needs to come down in price but its not so bad in terms of archiving your footage as I first thought. Just copy the P2 card on to your computer edit your program and then save only the good clips to some type of removeable disk(IE. Blueray,DVD,etc...) Dual layer DVDs are cheap now and would hold like 10 mins of footage for only a couple of bucks.
