Hiyah Tom! Missed you at Earls Court! - And yes, the A1 is certainly beckoning me: "Buy me . . Buy me . . "

The controls are spectacular. Did it at Amsterdam and the IoV conference.

This PLUS what I just read, comparison with the DVX100a - I'm being sorely tempted. And it ISN'T just because HD is becoming the universal platform, it is quickly demonstrating just what EXTRA I could be getting. Oh, and it is also HD!

Hey Graham, why am I an 'Inner Circle' with 2k posts, while you're an 'Old Boot' with 2.3k?

There can be only one "Old Boot" on DV Info Net, and that's Graham.

Poll closes after 25 more votes (in other words, when we reach 400). The data has held consistently at roughly ten to one for A1 over G1 and I doubt we'll see much of a change.

if either canon or a third-party manufacturer suddenly released a truly mobile and affordable solution for uncompressed HD-SDI out, then the G1 would take off like a rocket. i think the need for camera advances is just about complete. the next briliant innovation won't even be in cameras but in output and storage. with the release of the G1, we have more camera than we can use with any degree of efficiency....there are so many efficiencies baked into these cameras, so few in terms of building mobile and affordable systems to use them to their maximum potential.
