Canon 24 Fps Camera!

I read a bulletin where someone said they read in a magazine Canon was developing a 24/30 fps camera that will include an interchangeable lens like the XL1 (to compete with Panasonic's 24 fps AG-DVX1000). Does anyone know if this is true or has any one heard of this? If it is true, do you know when it is supposed to be released, and where I can learn more about it?

Thanks,
Papa Jenks

IMHO the last pro SD cameras were introduced at this year's NAB. All future ones, including the Canon replacement, will be HD.

That means I have to buy a HD-ready TV? Naaa. I'll stick with CBC Radio. (690 am here in Van.) My 1965 Radio Shack radio works just fine. Cost me 50 bucks (Canadian). :)

Frank, you should graduate to FM by now, the next step would be 8-track stereo, even in Canada. Just kidding.

Yeah, I kept my late dad's Christmas disco party 8 tracks. Too bad I don't have a 8 track player in my car! Never mind, I keep it tuned to CBC.

The XL2 is at least 1 year away, said Canon when asked by a site (5th of may 2003), I think it was 2pop but I don't remember, sorry. I've also heard some say that the CCD's will have 690.000 pixels. But other than that I haven't heard more.

No one knows. It just would not make sense for Canon to introduce SD replacement by next NAB.

I think that Frank is still using old Sony B/W reel to reel video recorder and for his music a wire recorder from WW2 surplus.

Canon 24p camera -- Some say yes!

I've gotten a few leads from people claiming that indeed, Canon will be offering a 24p camera later this year:

Here's an article that I read quite some time ago. In fact, its dated April 7, 2003. Basically it lists all the theories that are still floating around, 24p and "at least a year away." It even quotes an apparently credible source... Tim Smith, Technical Marketing & Sales Training Manager for the Video Division of Canon. I don't think that says too much for the rumors.
