Canon's consumer HDV cam: iVIS HV10

Hey all,

In anticipation of a forthcoming Aug 2 announcement, I checked out the Canon: Japan site. And it looks like that second announcement could be a couple of consumer HDV models and a new DVD model:

I was hoping for an XL H1s or another pro release/announcement of some sort...oh well...

New Canon HDV

Canon has annouced a new HDV mini in the vertical format, slightly smaller and lighter than the Sony HC-3. Looks like a nice machine, and I am partial to the vertical layout, but I will stick with the Sanyo HD1 until someone comes out with a more attractive model using the SD cards -- presumably AVCHD.

It has an RGB color filter; that makes it just about as good as a three-chip.

Read about it at http://www.hdvinfo.net/

Canon's first consumer HDV cam: iVIS HV10

Japanese links:
http://cweb.canon.jp/ivis/hv10/index.html
http://www.yodobashi.com/enjoy/more/i/57353736.html

Rough translation of basic specs:
1/2.7" 4:3 CMOS sensor with 2.96MP
Actual pixel count is 1920x1080 (2.07MP) in 16:9 mode
Low-light: 5 lux in normal mode (1/30s), 0.3 lux in night mode (1/2s)
10x Optical Zoom (f1.8-3.0, 43.6-436mm 35mm equiv.), 37mm filter size
Optical image stabilization
SuperQuick AF (active IR emitter, similar to A1/G1)
2.7" LCD with 210k pixels
Looks like no mic input or headphone output

It looks like the Japanese retail price will be around $1160. Canon products are usually 10-20% more expensive in Japan than in the US, so it might come in around a grand or a little under.

"The HV 10's 2.96MP Canon HD CMOS video sensor allows capture of HDV1080i footage with true 1920x1080 pixel resolution"

Now if Canon's imager captures 1920x1080 doesn't it still have to write 1440x1080 to tape?

"A level marker on the LCD makes it easier to line up the perfect shot."

Cool!

"Analogue-to-digital conversion is possible via AV input - older home movies can be easily archived to digital tape for safekeeping."

I wonder if this is DV only or if one could convert old VHS tapes to HDV format. Which would be nice if you want to keep one format of video around.

"DIGIC DV II helps to ensure low noise, a wide dynamic range, and accurate color reproduction for both video and photos."

Wide dynamic range compared to what?

You're not looking in the right place, Nick...

See http://www.hdvinfo.net/articles/canon/hv10overview.php

The news there might be interesting to you.

yupo just found it WAHOO!!!!!! awesome chris, overlooked 24f twice before I saw it in big letters right on the site...

Years ago I bought an elura 20MC to playback my xl1 footage now I can't wait to get this camera, oh man this thing is awesome

From the HDVinfo site:

"Although the HV10 doesn't offer 24F or 30F Frame modes nor four-channel audio while shooting, at least these capabilities were wisely added to the VCR mode of the HV10, and undoubtedly some XL H1 owners will probably buy an HV10 just for these specific playback features."

Undoubtedly I know of one XL-H1 owner who will... (note: we should all be aware as soon as you spend 1300 on using this camera as a deck a 1200 dollar portable HD-SDI system will be released...)

Alright, who wants to step up to the bar and be the first to make a feature film with one of these cameras?
Wouldn't it blow your mind if someone was able to make a good visual movie with one of these cameras?

Well, that's impressive. 1920x1080 for $1,300? Exciting times.

I think it actually scales that down to 1440x1080 before writing to tape. HDV can't be recorded as 1920x1080.
