And But Quickly My TRV33 dropped from $1400 to less then $1000
in the first year and now the equivelent HC40 can be had for about $750
exactally 2 years later.

This Cam has definately got me interested though as We have been
considering moving our home base vidiography business into the realm
of HD. The CMOS Vs CCD technology does cause me some concern though
as we have a very expensive 3 chip CMOS based X-ray diffraction camera at work here that's been a regular pain in the butt ever since we hooked it up, it's down for repair more than up for operation. Guess I will just have to wait and see how good it stands up and what the user reviews are like, IF it drops
to Below $2000 I will be giving it a real serious look for sure.

And a Slightly More informative Review:

Got an Invite in the Mail yesterday from the local Sonystore
and an E-mAIL From sonystyle lastnight to come
on down on July 20th and try this Bad Boy out,
In My E-Mail they were also showing a 4 Channel surround
sound Microphone as an optional accessory, For this camera
although they do not currently list it as such on the
sonystyle Web Page so Iam Guessing that It can handle the new
surround sound mike. But The current specs Say Stereo only
Hmm < Very confusing.
Also the new Vegas 6.0 HDV software has
DD 5.1 Support.

Glad to here You Like It Najeeb, Ive got to use this Camera on Two occasions now and have been really impressed with the picture quality although you need to keep your panning speed Down I find. Its a great Cam for the Money right now , My local Sony shop has sold 4 outright plus there demo model off the floor
since its release and are waiting for a second shipment. As you mentioned the next biggest hurdle after getting one of these guys is to put together a suitable editing Machine. My current Editing pc Will work( marginally) but rendering times are out of this world , a half hour of footage is running 14 hours to render.

Heres a link to an HC1 user forum that you might find usefull if you don't alredy have it, Lots of great user solutions and general problems and solutions users have been experiencing.

Enjoy your new Camera Iam gonna hold off making the move to HDV
for awhile yet myself, and let others like yourself work out the Bugs ;)
