Oh yeah. It needs to retail for US$1,999.99 max.
Yeah, but I see you live in Ont, Canada. GST and PST will bump it a way over $1,999.99.

[QUOTE=Mark Kubat]Egads, oh my!

Has Canon, the mighty Kwanon, at last become the laughing stock?

At last?

Methinks a GL3 AVCHD with 1080 24p and dual XLR's is the only way out of this... quagmire....

???

Hope dies last!

Just a thought, maybe we should try to talk RED into making a prosumer version RED LITTLE. For $1999.

As much as I'd love to see it, I doubt Canon is thinking very far ahead. They seem to make solid equipment that's just behind everyone else. This probably won't be any different.

Guess we'll see...

Has anyone even contemplated how it would be possible to design an HD cam with the GL form factor? The GL2 uses 3 quarter-inch CCDs. Without a technologic breakthrough, an HD chip of that size would probably yield an unacceptably noisy image. Use of a third-inch chip, however, would require a comparatively larger lens, which in turn would likely necessitate alteration of the camera's balance. The cumulative effect of several such changes would be a change to the form factor. Most likely, the HD replacement for the GL will be somewhat larger. But, unless its image quality is pretty bad (for HD), it lacks 24p, or its price is above, say, $5,000, it should sell briskly.

No way, the gl3 will be laser based. Laser for everything from range finging to bomb guidance to eye surgery. Man i hope this bong induced fantasy never ends!!!

Did what? Cram HD resolution onto a quarter-inch chip, or maintain a small form factor with a third-inch chip? I assume you mean the latter, as the HVR-AU1 uses a third-inch chip, but only one -- so the bulk of a prism assembly was eliminated. And its lens is a 10-to-1, not a 20-to-1. Still, you may be right. It's possible that Canon may decide to cut costs -- and bulk --and go with a single CMOS chip.

Nice to be right :)

Looks like the guy at the store was right when he said the XM2/GL2 was now discontinued.

I happily stand corrected. It's official -- two GL form factor models: the XH-G1 and XH-A1.

Yeah, I just hope they will push xl2 prices lower. I can't affords an xl2 as it is, so i really can't afford the new canons. Maybe in a year, not to long

Bzzt! Sorry, but he was wrong. The XM2 / GL2 / XV2 are not discontinued. The new XH Series HDV camcorders are additions to the Canon line and they're not replacing anything. The XM2 / GL2 / XV2 are still current products and will continue to be until year's end at least. Remember, if it ain't gone from the Canon site, then it ain't discontinued. Hope this helps,

Okay, Jos - amazing.

If the announcement on the 2nd is true as you say and as good today, I will officially name my first-born child - boy or girl - "Jos Svendsen" - haha!

Man, I'm a Canon believer again! Born again!!!!
