that 3D rumor looks beautiful - I really needed a smaller version of the 1 series and it looks like that's it. I hope it's real.

Aaaargh, I can't substantiate this rumour :-p, but I read somewhere on another site ... or was it my cousin's friend ...

Well anyway, Canon's going to announce 11 new camcorders.

Don't get your hopes up though, they're all in the ZR line.

Looks like there's going to be a replacement for the Canon Powershot G6. It's down to 4 sellers on pricegrabber.com, that's down from 20 sellers about 2 months ago. Perhaps a full frame fixed lens range finder/SRL body people have been speculating about.

Interestingly, the GL2 went up to 44 sellers from 34 sellers about 2 weeks ago, don't know what that means though.

From this press release, it appears to be around 4 years. I was talking to another shooter today about how Canon has seemingly abandoned the prosumer camcorder space. I was at the XL-H1 launch event and the Canon people kept saying that the H1 was meant to be a broadcast studio camera.

That said, I am very much a Canon guy ever since I got my EOS650 years ago. I wish they had a full robust line of video cameras like Panasonic does.

The Optura 60 is down to 11 sellers on pricegrabber.com, that's down from 20 sellers a week ago.
