Canon HDV Camcorder
Canon has announced two prosumer HDV camcorders; the XH G1 and XH A1 (MSRP $6999 and $3999, respectively).
Wow! And the interesting thing; at that price neither accepts interchangeable lenses!
Not being in the market for that kind of expensive camera at the moment, I can't really get excited. Canon has a habit of coming out with really cool semi-pro video cameras about a year or so after Sony, and by that time, I've already made my buying decision. Bad luck for me I guess - and I'm very happy with the Sony - but it's still a little annoying that they couldn't get in the game a little sooner.
