Another rumoured Sony camera sees the light.  This seems like a pretty direct response to the Canon XF305.  Same chip size, same bit rate and codec, same size, same connectors and pretty much the same price.  I really like the layout of the buttons and controls: Nice.

The bit rate and colour space are interesting.  If they let the “new kid on the block” have 50mbps and 4:2:2, what does that say about the EX1 and F3?  One has to think that the chances of them being upgraded at NAB are virtually 100%. I’m beginning to wonder if Sony will address their lack of 10 bit solutions at this NAB?

Cinescopophilia has a little write-up as well, including more high res photos.
