well the target price range is 6k, a nano flash is about 3 grand, a ki pro is 4 grand ish, plus you would want to invest in some sxs cards. This pushes the camera very close to the price of a full functional scarlet. but added weight and size. It's a really hard toss up, if they could put in intra for an extra 2k, and allow it as an option, ie higher grade camera, than it undercuts the scarlet by half (estimate) and gives a great intra frame 10 bit codec. VERY useful, VERY viable. Huge use for a camera like that. Scarlet will always have the edge cause of RAW, larger sensor size, and modularity. But as far as camera straight out of the box goes, it's going to be very useful. I think both are going to be very successful cameras either way. A true full raster avchd is alright, better than anything the GH1 can put out, and NLE's are adopting it faster for native editing.Camera is supposely 6 months or so away so we'll see. At the moment, AVCHD not a fan, but that's always subject to change. Let's see if Panny can get their mojo back.
