Check this out. I had a feeling this would be coming.. and over on dvdoctor I see before my eyes from IBC the new canon prototype HDV cam!
I knew that it would not be long before HDV came to Canon, hence why I never really looked into the XL2. But oh my - if this takes all my accessories from the XL1s and is as fully featured and as good quality as the XL2 then OH BOY this ones going to be mine!!
