SI: Sony Working On HD Camcorder With Interchangeable Lens

Rate this question




Sony is developing a new type of AVCHD high definition camcorder, set for the market this Fall, which features key technologies powering the newly announced interchangeable lens digital camera, NEX-5 and NEX-3. The new camcorder will be equipped with the same “Exmor” APS HD CMOS sensor to be used in NEX series. In addition, the camcorder will be compatible with “E Mount” interchangeable lenses developed for NEX, and also the wealth of “A Mount” interchangeable lenses from the existing “α” DSLR camera lineup via a mount adapter. By combining these features, Sony aims to market a camcorder capable of generating a variety of creative expressions in HD quality.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1273554059.html is a comprehensive review.

"The Sony Alpha NEX5 and Alpha NEX3 go on sale from July 2010, priced at $650 and $550 respectively with a 16mm f/2.8 lens, or $700 and $600 respecitvely with an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens. The lenses will be available by themselves for $250 and $300 respectively. A third lens model -- the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS zoom -- is set to follow from fall 2010, priced at around $800. Alongside the camera and lenses, Sony has announced accessories including two wide angle converters, a proprietary external flash strobe, external stereo microphone accessory, and an optical viewfinder. There's also a mount adapter that will allow manual focus compatibility with all Sony Alpha-mount lenses. Sony has also announced a forthcoming update that will give 3D Sweep Panorama capability to both cameras this July, for viewing on the latest 3D televisions."

I think it's got beyond something they are "working on".
