Hv30?

Anyone that knows if there is to be a "HV30" soon?

When was the HV20 presented to the public?

The HV20 was shipping just in March I believe. I think there is room in the Canon lineup for a higher end camcorder between the HV20 and the A1.

Agreed. I want one that's MPEG2 based and uses a harddrive (and/or CF cards). I love both my A1 and my HV20, but there is room for something in between.

I'd go for an A1-Lite that records high bitrate MPEG2 to flash cards, that'd be nice. It could use the same sensor as the HV20 with more manual control and perhaps XLR inputs.

What would be great? 3CCD or 3CMOS (Preferably in global shutter mode) at native 1920x1080 resolution.

But... no format yet to record 1080p60...

All good thougths. It would be very close to the A1 though. Wouldn't that be a problem to be a 1k unit then? They could, like the JVC, move controls to a ring and also adapt to solid state memory. I guess we have to wait some 6-9 months until "HV30".

"The HV20 was shipping just in March I believe"
OK, almost "new", then not much is to happen for 6-9 months I guess. I might pick one up. Prob. the last "tape" I'm going to own. 2nd hand price will be a nightmare prob.

Global shutter, easy manual control of all functions, pulldown flags -- 3 imaging chips would be nice but are unnecessary. Oh, and the same price or cheaper.

Camera just came out guys. Give it a little bit, more likely there will be an update by next Spring. But in the meantime, the camera rocks and it will for quite a long time be the best bang for your buck in HDV 24P acquisition.

Also, I think you guys are asking for too much to keep it at the same price. Some of your suggestions actually PUT it at A1 price levels.

I guess that the lense stands for 2/3 of the price on the A1. This lense will never "fit" on any HV xy. A bit more manual controls could not be such a cost. Well, whatever Canon think out in 9 months or so will prob. be good - I hope.

Yes ....let's hope they don't take a step backwards like panasonic did with the gs400 to the gs500 etc. More manual controls would be great.

I would really like this camera. It does not need to be as small as the HV20 nor as big as the A-1 but with full manual control. Maybe like the porridge for Goldilocks Canon can make it just right!

I'd like to see one like the Sony A1U--an HV20 with XLR's, more robust build quality, etc.

I was wondering when Sony will respond with a native 1080x1920 sensor? I have a A1U but the native on that is 1080X1440. BD would be real nice.

Jeez, I hope not.

Greater manual control and pulldown flags should cost next to nothing to implement. A global shutter may or may not be significantly more expensive. I've seen nothing about what it would cost to produce a global-shutter 1,920 x 1,080 CMOS chip vs a rolling-shutter one.

Maybe it will have a 1/2" chip, eh?
