Drats!

I just noticed this rebate on Canon's website.
I bought an XH-A1 (ordered on Feb. 26th)! I will contact the retailer to whine . . . :-)

Xha2?

seems like CANON usualy puts out a rebate before a product change or model gets replaced. Its way too soon to expect a XHA2? or maybe an XHA1 with CMOS CCDS? By all acounts the XHA1 is a good seller. I could see a pro video product-wide rebate but I dont see a rebate on the XL-H1. Seems kinda odd.
Good, but odd.

I don't know that rebates are necessarily tied to the end of life of their cameras. I haven't honestly kept track, but I'm pretty sure I remember that there have been several rebates for the GL2 and maybe the XL2, and those cameras are still current models.

I just talked to B&H and Canon USA. No joy. My XH-A1 purchased on 2/26/07 won't be getting me a $250 rebate.

I knew I should have waited to buy this camera! ;-)

There will be no PRO models soon. The rebates are used to accelerate sales prior and after NAB in case of the introduction of new cameras by competitors.

However, in September, Canon will release another consumer HDV camera but not a prosumer of H1 type series.

Placed my order for the A1 yesterday at B&H. This was a rare case where my procrastination rewarded me. (I was planning to place the order earlier in the week but got distracted). I used part of the $250 rebate to purchase a nice Petrol rolling wingbag which happended to included a free camera raincover. Feels good to get a good deal!

The B&H rep suggested this bag for the A1

Just to clarify that is Lou's personal best guess at what the reasons for the rebate are and what the future may hold (maybe correct, maybe not). He isn't speaking for Canon.

XH-A1 Purchased on March 13th

First Post! Hello Everyone.

I purchased my XH-A1 on March 13th from B&H. Two days later I found out about this rebate. I contacted B&H on the 16th but didn't get a reply back until the 19th. They said they would send me an invoice with a new date. :)Camera should arrive today.

That's correct.

However, Canon did tell me they are trying to encourage sales in parts of the country where sales may be not up to expectations.

Canon also advised me that there will no no PRO cameras soon. Canon did advise me that another version of a HV-20 is in the works and MAY be issued prior to the September date.

Of course, things can change as in any business. But this is what I have been told. Most of my obtained information is pretty accurate as was the case with the XH-A1 and the HV-10 release dates as well as the HV-20.

However, I did read that someone posted a XL-H2 rumour.
Canon denied same..................let's see.

Did you get Rod's camera and bag shipped to him? I sent him to you. It's the best deal available now. In a few days we'll have 7 XH A1s in town that I know about personally.

Bill, Sorry, didn't mean to miss your post from last month. As a matter of fact, yes he did purchase the camcorder package from TapeWorks and it seems to be working great for his acquisition.
