...but the MSRP of the HF100 was/is $899. The HF200, at $749, has a lower MSRP. The question is; what will the initial markdown be at places like B&H, and how long it will take to come down? I would not be surprised if, a year from now, the HF200 isn't selling for less than $500 (Global Depressions and massive inflation/deflation not withstanding.)

Right now Amazon has both those cameras available for pre-order at that price, but says the list prices (respectively) are 1,499.99 and 1,299.99.

Hey guys...

So from what i understand the HFS 10 is the high end, top of the range consumer cam from Canon ie supposed to have the best quality image/lens?

Like similar to the HF 20 but higher pixel count/quality lens?

or which 2009 camera is top of the range from Canon

Cheers.

That is correct Mike -- The HF S10 / HF S100 is the top of the Canon VIXIA line for 2009 (so far).

1 more thing, total pixels. HFS 10 has more than double what the HF 20 has. What does total pixels actually mean? More pixel's = better quality, more detail? or...? anyone know?:

HF 20:
Total Pixels:
3,890,000

HFS 10:
Total Pixels:
8,590,000

Cheers guys.

received my hf s10 yesterday

received the relatively new hf s10 canon camera yesterday and had a good play around with it. Overall, excellent camera with many good points. the biggest shock was it is really bad in poor lighting; grainy and could not manually focus.

i just purchased a load of filters before i switched on. No more scratching my lens but it looks like i will not beable to use many of the ones I purchased for indoor work.

by the way I am new to acvchd and what would be the best editing solution using the cs4 bundle.

I'd use Cineform for that format.... it makes working with acvchd very easy on your editor

Bad in poor lighting compared to what? Other Canon camera's you have tried or?

isn't it 0.2 lux like most other recent canon models?

For Paul: since he's in Tokyo, he most likely bought it in the Akihabara district.
