I've been keeping an eye on this camera for a while so I think I can tackle some of the questions I see here from what I've read.
This is marketed for the consumer in mind so that means limited recording formats, no xlr inputs, no zebra graphs or histographs, and limited manual control. It's also why they're shipping it as a kit with the 18-200mm lens without a body only option for those of us with lenses already. There are rumors that they might "repackage" this with more manual settings and recording options and market it as their prosumer model. They are also announcing a pro cinema 19k model early next year.
There's also a photo button that allows you to take 14.6 MP jpeg only pictures. There is a flap on the handle that exposes two shoes, a sony proprietary and a standard one and it'll support sony's duo memory stick or sd card.
