GL3 thoughts

I have always heard that panasonic makes the guts of canon cameras. If this is true I would imagine the GL3 to be right around the corner and to be very much like the HVX200 (only hdv) in footprint and capabilities and probably(hopefully) different CCDs, and of course a canon lens. As far as a P2 like recording medium is concerned, I think canon is stickin to tape.

Have you looked at the specs?

It has a full cine curve for stretching the greyscale for more range. Nice!

And the full colour matrix adjustments of the H1!

HD-SDI out, and genlock/timecode, XLR sockets etc! And the pictures on the specs page clearly show it is the G1 with these sockets on!

I think I'm gonna like this camera!

Wow is right!

So, that Canon purchase of a 24p license might mean full resolution progressive scan?

Also notice that the pictures of the cameras have 2 rings. Possibly one for iris/zoom, and one for focus?
