The QUALIA 002, Sony's high-end HDV video camera

Sony QUALIA 002

Sony has added a high-def video camera to its QUALIA line of high-end, ultra-expensive electronics. The QUALIA 002, or Q002-HDR1, is essentially a pricey version of their already expensive HDR-FX1 HD video camera, so how is it different/better/worth a couple of grand more? It must be the endless prestige and raised social standing Sony promises from owning a QUALIA product, because apart from a "revised video codec" and some other "additional functions", the Q002 seems about the same as the HDR-FX1: both support HDV, have 3CCD sensors, and can record in 1080i.
