New CompactFlash Based HD recorder

Hi all,
Just thought you guys with an XL H1 might like the look of this.

Looks pretty sweet to me, only wish they would bring out the same sort of thing for my XH A1. Oh well, i can only hope.

The only thing I don't like about this device is the price, $5,000 is a lot of money. If Canon releases a tapeless XL-H1 later this year or early next year, you could probably buy a body only for $7,000. That's keeping me from buying this device. Although of course it can do 4:2:2 at different bitrates so you can't compare those two situation (unless Canon goes 4:2:2 with the XL-H2). I just can't justify the price, and I think Canon has implemented HDV pretty well. Nick Hiltgen's The Signal was shot in HDV on tape. But definitely a nicer product which I would have bought it was 50% cheaper.

Wow! i didn't see that. That's another XH A1 & a half! Funny thing is, i'm sure i read somewhere else in the specs or something that it was a very cost effective solution. Go figure!
