Sony presented their new 9000 PL tonight. It's basically the guts of the F-35 in a smaller one-piece package with an HDSR cassette recorder, and some new features such as speed ramping. And all for $72,500.

They also showed the new one Terabyte memory cards, featuring 5 Gbps sustained I/O, and a one rack unit memory card read/write unit to add on to the 5800 HDSR tape machine. The 9000 PL will later get a card module that can replace the tape transport.

They had Master Primes here, and used them on their test shoots. Michael Goi, Curtis Clark, and Francis Kenney, all ASC, shot the tests.

Surely impossible as DigiPrimes would be B4 mount? I guess the camera you saw would have been an SRW9000 (the 2/3" version) ?

Thats exactly my point, at IBC on the SONY stand a 2/3 inch video camera was displayed when the sign claimed 9000PL, I don't think many people noticed.

Sony sent my DP and I a SRW-9000PL last week. We shot a shot web film with it this past week. We used a Fuji 18-85mm T2.0. Those two together made a beast of a camera. We loved the image quality of the 9000PL as well as the range of control the it gives you. The video should be posted on line mid-Feburay.
