Ouch! If it's at those UK prices the images will have to be absolutely stunning or I'm definitely walking away from this one. Much too high. A near mint used EX1 would be a better buy. We'll have to see what it actually goes for on the street once the buzz has died down a bit and the camera's true worth is established.

Perhaps I was just being pessimistic, but knowing how much we get ripped off in these islands, maybe not...

A quick Google reveals some different UK pricing:

Park Cameras: 9,999.00
3dbroadcastsales.com: 4112.50

I'm kind of hoping that both of them are wrong!

The more well-known dealers are simply listing "to be advised" or "call for pricing".

I got on BH this morning and saw it there too.

if they do like they did on the XF300, the XF100 will go for $2,999 a little bit after the official launch.

I wonder if Canon has a XF200 series in the works. I'd love to see a version with something like the Sony NX5u's attachable 128GB flash drive. That would really be awesome... Having the new codec and a large on camera, easily mountable, instant back up device.

But why would it need such a device? It already records a great codec to easily removeable CF cards. Just take 'em out and load 'em into a computer. What can be more convenient than that?

The reason the NX5s has an external drive is to bypass HDV tapes - and it still records the HDV codec. No need for that on the XF100. The less appendages hanging on a camera, the better, IMHO.

The Sony NX5 isn't HDV, it's AVCHD and doesn't use tape.

That is right, the NX6 is an AVCHD based camcorder and is the solid state variant of the Z5U.

There are 2 Sony Flash Units: The MRC1 which can be used with most HDV camcorders, and then the FMU128 which was specifically designed for the NX5. It mounts cleanly on the rear quarter of the camera and allows up to 11 hours of recording time.

My thought was, it would be great to see something like this from Canon at a reasonable price. The FMU is about $700, which is quite a bit cheaper than some of the other 3rd party solutions I've seen which run between $1000 and $1600... and aren't near as user friendly or asthetically pleasing for that matter. Mounting brackets etc...

For event videographers it would be a great option to have, to be able to record that awesome 50MBps codec onto a second device in real time.

The other advantage would be, if a card, or the card slot encounters a problem, you can still record directly to the Flash unit and by pass the card slots all together, thus potentially saving the day in a worst case scenario situation with cards or card slots failing during a live shoot.

Oops, my bad! I was thinking of the Sony Z5/Z7s when I wrote about the HDV codec.
Sorry!

The XF100/105 (like the XF300/305) not only has Relay Recording where when one card fills up then it continues recording to the second card it also has what Canon call Double Slot Recording (which the XF300/305 does not) where it records the same files to both cardssimultaneously thus providing an instant backup.

Proactive UK are now listing the models at 2295 and 2995, both plus VAT, for January delivery.

Creative video are listing the XF105 at 3250 plus vat but with a 20 December availability.

Just in time to put under the tree!
