    Default Canon XL H1 Oh yeahhhhhhhh!!!

    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!

    http://www.gpjco.tv/ibc/

    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!!

    It does look a bit like that. I dont really care though, haha I have really hoped for ages that canon would hurry up with a HDV cam. Lets hope it lives up to the expectation!

    Woah! Now I have to find the money :P

    Seriously though, would there be a noticable difference between the compressed HD that is usual and this stuff?

    This cam will retail for $9000USD - ouch. Looks like this will be way out of my reach for a while yet.. People ahve been saying genlock this and use the HD uncompressed out and you basically havea fully fledged HD cam.. nice..
