Possibility of a 1920x1080 CMOS?

After seeing the HV10 footage (which I think most of you have). do any of you think that they might put in a 1920x1080 CMOS in the XH G1 and A1?

Whoops. It's "Affordable 3CCD High Definition (HD / HDV) Acquisition", Sorry.

considering the major position Canon has with its cmos in digital cameras, I would disagree and say it is very likely that CANON will use CMOS in its higher end camcorders. but it would be a future new model

Sony probably sells the cmos chips to Canon, and will be releasing their own 3 chip cmos hdv cam shortly.

I would very much like to see where CMOS sensors go as the quality of one right now is amazing. Just take a look at the Sony HC1/HC3/A1U cameras, they get all the quality packed in their bulkier siblings, the FX1 and Z1U, at not only a cheaper price, but also a much, much, much smaller size.

But to implement three of them? Oh man, that would be just downright cool! If that's on the horizon, then NAB '07 will definitely make up for the lackluster NAB '06. ;)

Incorrect. The 1920x1080 CMOS chips in the new HV10 camcorders are manufactured by Canon, in the same plant that makes Canon CMOS sensors for their Digital SLR still camera product line. In fact the HV10 is the very first Canon camcorder that does not outsource any integral component. The image from the HV10 is all Canon, from the lens to the CMOS chip to the Digic DV II processor to the HDV tape transport.

Does this imply that the Canon CMOS is better than the one they might have gotten from Sony? I've always liked the fact that many of the manufacturers used components from one another, which resulted in better overall camcorders. Canon made better glass, Sony's CCDs and recorders were superior, the viewfinders and viewscreens might have come from a company that did the best with them, etc. Of course, in Canon's case, making their own image sensors may be in their best interests. Some years back, when they were dependent on their main competitors for their CCDs, they were given ones that were 2nd-rate to what the makers produced for their own camera models.

Canon leads in the cmos sensors for digital cameras, probably more likely SONY would do better getting them from Canon.

As of the time of this writing, Sony does not make a one-third inch 1920x1080 CMOS chip for HD camcorders.

Good news if Canon is making cmos sensors. Time to pump out a 2/3" sensor.

Sony makes APS-C format sensors for Nikon DSLR camera bodies.
Canon makes their own CMOS sensors.
