Great and mysterious are the ways of Canon. I find it pretty futile (and kind silly) to even try and guess what they're going to do anymore, as last week's events surely bore out.

I guess we'll have to wait until the Canon Expo next week (15th) to see now. Man, I sure would love for Canon to surprise all and hit one out of the park. I have a feeling it might be a solid "double" with the GL3.

If only we could get Chris to give us some early hints. I see that he's doing a seminar there next week...

Shiner Blonde for me, I save the Bock for worthwhile occasions.

If this rumor is true about an XL3 or XLHD.

Someone said it'll blow the others away today and it's coming.

Of course we've been guessing or hearing this for a while.

But what would blow all the other cameras away?

A combo of Sony and the HVX, 60i,60p,50i,50p,30p,30i,25p, 24p, more than one frame rate with interchangeable lens.

Just having fun here.

I find it hard to believe anyone can blow anyone away with HDV in the price range we're looking at.

It *seems* from the forums around the place that people are having various problems with the JVC, so maybe that gives Canon some leverage in that area - builda solid product that performs well and people will be happy.

Of course, what we all want is something like DVCPRO HD. Will be interesting nonetheless!

If the price range is around $6,000, Canon could do plenty. I recall when a lot of otherwise knowledgeable people poo-pooed 24p, saying that it wasn't part of the HDV spec, and then JVC added it. I remember when an interchangeable lens was thought unrealistic at this price point. Maybe Canon has waited to release an HD model because it's trying to incorporate a lot of innovative (at this price) features.

Shiner Bock.... yes, thank the Lord I can still buy it here in San Mateo, and I don't mind paying for 'premium' beer.

Oh, wait.... I'm sorry, this is a thread about cameras or something isn't it... Umm okay... "Yeah, Canon is going to blow away everybody... "

I agree Lawrence,
with the internals of the camera being electronic circuitry, there is a lot that Canon can do within the $6000 mark. I think the biggest costs are the CCD chips and the lenses.

Pretty darn sure this is a fake. See my post in this thread that started in the XL2 forum (now ALSO in AREA 51 unless and until this apparent hoax is confirmed -- which I doubt it will be):
