Since the discussion has strayed directly from the Canon cameras in particular, does anyone have any guess where a 3 CMOS chip HD camera might fit in this whole scheme of things. Would CMOS chips actually speed up processing in some way to make 1080p more possible ?

If the discussion has strayed directly from the Canon cameras in particular, that means I haven't been doing my job. Let's bring it back on topic to the CCD-equipped G1 and A1 specifically, and take the suppositions about CMOS camcorders elsewhere. Thanks in advance,

Yes, but tread lightly there. Things have been known to disappear without a trace from Area 51.

The mysteries of Area 51 are discussed in a thread called The Mysteries of Area 51, located in Area 51.

Test Drive

So where can I find one of these puppies to do a hands-on test drive in the Phoenix, Arizona area? Short of that, where can I test drive an XL1 or XL2? I'm making the leap from still photography to digital video and the canon cameras seem to be the best (too bad Nikon isn't in this game, I could use all my lenses like Canon photographers can use theirs on the Canon digital video cams). Thanks!

I think so, but I'm not sure CMOS technology has had enough time to mature to reach that level. But who knows, nobody thought 2K or 4K was possible for under $100,000+.

Once again... this ain't a CMOS thread... this is the Canon G1 / A1 thread. Thanks,

I can't speak for anyone else, but I switched from Canon to Sony last year because I wanted to go HD and Canon wasn't giving any hint of when they'd have affordable cameras ready. Not only can a little advance hype help pique interest in your products, but it also helps if you don't wait TWO YEARS after your competition to get those products to market!

True, but we always say, if you need to buy a camera now, find the best one and buy it. If not, wait and see if your favorite brand will have one soon. I feel bad for any potential Sharp buyers out there, though I wonder if they're going consumer-only. I'm betting your Sony is doing well for you?

That is their track record though. Remember it took more than two years for them to get into DV. The Sony VX1000 came out in January 1995; the Canon Optura and XL1 weren't announced until November 1997.
