It looks offical...no 24p on Canon's new HDV. How weird is that? Their previous model has 24p! Granted it's SD, but it's damn nice image for a lot less money.

If I were going to buy a Canon...I'd actually think about getting their XL2 now. It'll be cheaper and it does 24p for film outs...sounds like a bargain camera to me. This newer Canon HDV is up against still compeditors that are cheaper!

Christopher, are you privy to a verified source that nobody else has reported as yet? I'm certainly hopeful for an HD camera announcement at Canon Expo in the coming days, but so far am unaware of any substantiated information about the capabilities of their next camera.

If you have an official source, please link it or tell us where to find it. Thanks!

I don't like linking to other sites, but here is where I found the information.

"....will not have a 24 frames progressive scan mode"

Have a look at this blog on the speech yesterday by Fujio Mitarai, President and CEO of Canon.

http://www.camcorderinfo.com/content...po-Keynote.htm

and possible reference to more than one camera.

Apparently the announcement is going to come today, the 14th, at 10:30AM. I am eating my words on that photo . . .

Christopher and Peter,

Agree that we don't want to make a habit of going to other web sites -- some of which may have a reputation for, shall we say, speculative reporting -- as we look for the hot news, but considering the buzz about Canon lately, verfying the source of the latest rumors and reports are most appreciated. Thanks.

Happily, we can stay right here at DVinfo for all the latest rock-solid information on Canon's new camera. As of today DVinfo "Kennelmaster" Chris Hurd has established a new forum just for Canon's new HD camera:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/forumdisplay.php?f=101

I'm going to look in that forum to see what's new and true about Canon's new camera, like whether there's no NATIVE 24p, or no 24p at all (I'm sure we are all hoping for the former, not the latter). If you need me, that's where I'll be. C'mon over everyone!

Great, same crap as with the Z1 - it has some kind of "24 frame mode" but what does this mean? Will they botch it like CF24 with the Sony? If the CCDs cannot capture progressively, there is no way to make 24p without blending fields, and that means resolution loss.

Canon, WHY OH WHY? You had an almost perfect camera! Why did you botch it?

That's my question too. If it blends fields to make a frame, how is it possible to be as good as real progressive? Fields are not captured at the same time. To me, it seems like while progressive is like a solid digital still, this method would be like taking a still from a video stream, or a video still. I still can't see it.
Besides, in this day and age, going back to some sort of frame movie mode just seems like a step backwards. Maybe after the XL-H1S, Canon will make a XL-H2 with real progressive.
I hope sample footage will come soon.

Right, it probably will be comparable to the Frame Mode of the XL1 and GL1-2. Which, incidentally, isn't terrible. Their field blending algorithm is actually quite good as compared with most any other method of making 60i->24p. But still, why not just capture at freakin 1080p?

I could be very mistaken, but doesn't the Sony F900 get progressive from interlaced fields? 24psf... something like that. Good enough for Lucas... good enough for me.

We might be suprised by this new camera.

Thanks for posting that informative page. I actually know what the hell is going on with the features now. I am not able to save the H1 images to my PC though. I can copy the image files but they don't display once on my machine.

Re: looks like a spray painted XL-2


If true, hey, at least it was spray. There would have been brush or roller marks if they did it the other way, and them'd have to be sanded off.

Here this cant get any more official than Canon's very own site

http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/con...&modelid=12152

then if you click on the "HDV recording" it tells you what it can record
it says 24F and 30F and 60i which im guessing the 24F isnt really 24P
only time will tell if it looks good or not.
