I too was hoping to to see something that would compete head on with the aging Sony A1u, but considering how close it may come to the Canon A1 (especially with used A1s plummeting in price) i can't see that happening.

30p is a definate plus for me, and considering that I've been waiting on an hv20 to compliment my A1, hv30 it is.

It REALLY would have been nice to have the hv30 record in 24p mode without the 3:2 60i pulldown.

New HV-30

They missed the Lanc control again, and the 24P pulldown conversion I'm very happy with my HV-10 and HV-20.
I'll pass on the HV-30 if that is all they are offering.

30/24P vs 30/24F

Anyone know if if the 30P mode on this badboy will be stored using the Canon 30F system? Or will it be 30P shooting and saved on the standard 60i timeline (similar to what the hv20/sony v1u 1080p24-> 3:2 pulldown to fit on a 60i timeline).

Would really be awesome if the 1080p24/30 output on this little can be outputted in 24F/30F frame mode.!!

LANC disappeared from Canon consumer camcorders years ago and it will not be coming back, sorry.

30F needs three CCD image sensors to work, and the HV30 has a single CMOS sensor, so Frame mode acquisition is not possible. It is 30P, not 30F (however it will play back both 24F and 30F Frame mode video from an XL or XH series camcorder).

Yes it is 30P in a 60i timeline. No need for pulldown though.

Being able to have progressive and not worry about pull-down removal would really be a huge time saver. With so much video being made for the Internet/YouTube I see these camcorders being a great option in 30p mode for those types of projects.

In addition to more manual controls, I'd love to see zebras or some other tool for setting exposure.

The Pana GS400 had zebras and rings. Has any consumer camera had them since?

How to capture 30P footages from 60i timeline?
Does it still need flags?

my best guess is that it takes a single 30pprogressive frame and splits it into 2 60i fields. u will need to a deinterlace to restore back to original progressive frame

I think it iust the same as we shoot HV20 in HDV mode(60i) using 1/30 shutter because HV10/20/30 has a progressive CMOS, am I right???

HC1, 3, 5, 7, etc, etc... CX7... and of course the HV20 and presumably the new ones!

Bingo. Standard operating procedure which hasn't changed from the SD days of digital video. The two fields per frame are created at the same time and therefore do *not* have a 1/60th second time separation between them that normal interlace video has.

So, it would be much easy to convert to 30P than 24P in HV20. Good news!
Thanks you.
