Optura 400/500 discontinued ...

The Optura 400/500 have been retired from the Canon USA website line up, so that puts the Optura 50/60 in the batter's box, with the Optura 60 at 7 resellers down from 20 resellers on pricegrabber.com 2 weeks ago.

Yup camcorder watching, it's just like watching baseball. Now I just hope someone hits a home run.

Did anyone else notice the generic camcorder FAQ on the site? Here's one of the entries:
"What is required to download high definition video from my HDV Camcorder to my computer running OS X?"

Now I don't see any SDI or Genlock FAQ items there, so I don't think they're talking about the XLH1...

Alright, borderline Area 51, so I'll leave that alone.

You know, I promised myself that the Optura 30 was my last SD camcorder, but the Optura 50 is priced SO LOW and I really want manual audio and OIS... patience, patience.
