I should have been a bit more careful though.

Look at your history: they were the last to get into DV, DVD and HDV camcorders.
I'm gonna go against the grain a little and guess that Canon will ship some consumer AVCHD product in 2007, probably replacements for the DVD line. It just makes business sense. Panasonic and Canon have both abandoned the $1200-1400 bracket, probably because of the HC1 and now HC3. Sony is going to start invading the sub 1K market soon I imagine and that's just going to impact sales of other manufacturers too much I believe. I see no reason that Canon can't get an AVCHD DVD cam out within a year's time.

Hey Chris, on a technical note I don't know if I'd say Canon was the last to produce HDV camcorders. We're still waiting for Samsung, Sharp and Hitachi to provide any sort of HDV product (and I'm NOT going to count that Handycam thing). Granted, they're consumer cam makers, but Sony has already released two affordable consumer models. And I'd bet a dollar that Canon will beat those guys to a shipping HDV consumer model as well.

I imagine the footage will be all but indistinguishable from the H1.

I have to agree. I know we've been comparing the new cameras to the GL series because of their relationship to the XL H1, but if you look at their pricepoint, the XH A1 is in a similar pricerange as the original price for the XL2.

So rather than trying to deliver a "handicapped" camcorder to the consumer masses, I imagine Canon may be trying to deliver a camera to the same market that bought into previous XL series cameras.

Just my random thoughts.

There's no comparison at all to the GL series, even if it were an SD camera. The GL has 1/4" chips. These new HDV cameras have 1/3' chips, presumably the same as the XL H1. For some reason people were always comparing the GL1 and 2 with the 1/3" chip cameras like the VX2000. I guess because they were priced more like a 1/3" chip camera than a 1/4" one.
