Not really a surprise, but Sony announced the 'pro' version of the HDR-FX7, the HVR-V1U.
It's about $1,000 more than the FX7, and adds 24p recording, which is exciting for those that want to make something for film distribution (or even just film-like.)The other cool feature is support for recording to an external hard drive (the HVR-DR60.)
CamcorderInfo has a comparison chart between the HVR-VR1 and HDR-FX7.
I want one, but at $4,000 I can't afford it!
