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.
