Hi Ray,

From Wikipedia's entry about Canon camcorders:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ers#Canon_HV40

Canon HV40
The Canon HV40 is an HDV camcorder. It was announced in January 2009. The NTSC version supports native 24p in addition to 24p-over-60i. The latter was the only 24 frames/s format available on the HV20 and HV30.

Canon HV30
The Canon HV30 is an HDV camcorder. It was announced in January 2008 and went on sale in March 2008. In the NTSC version, it is the first consumer-grade camcorder to shoot 1080p30 video in addition to PF24 24fps mode that was pioneered by its predecessor, the HV20. The HV30 has since been replaced by the 2009 model, the Canon HV40. The NTSC-region camera shoots in three modes: the standard 60i interlaced video, 24p film-like video with 2:3 pulldown, and 30p PsF-style video. In PAL regions, it can record in 25p mode, which is also recorded to tape in PsF fashion. The PAL version does not record 30p or 24p. The camera is capable of recording in both HDV and DV formats, onto MiniDV tape, though it's unable to record 24p in the DV format.
The camera uses a 1/2.7" CMOS sensor, which is shared with other consumer high definition cameras manufactured by Canon, such as the Canon HV10, Canon HV20, Canon HV40, Canon HR10, Canon HG10, and Canon DC50.


Canon HV20
The Canon HV20 is an HDV camcorder. Announced January 30 2007, it is the first consumer-grade camcorder to shoot 1080p24.[12] Consequently, it has become popular with low-budget film/video makers. It is the successor to the Canon HV10, which was Canon's first consumer HDV camcorder.
The NTSC-region camera shoots at 24p which gives a film-like look in PF24 mode, using 2:3 pulldown in a 60i stream. In PAL regions, it can record in native 25p mode and as such does not require the same pull-down removal techniques that the NTSC edition does. The camera is capable of recording in both HDV and DV formats, on MiniDV, though it's unable to record 24p in the DV format.
The camera uses a 1/2.7" CMOS sensor, which is shared with other consumer high definition cameras manufactured by Canon, such as the Canon HV10, Canon HR10 and Canon HG10. The replacement for the HV20, the HV30, was released in March 2008, soon followed by the Canon HV40.
