Today is the day!

DV Info Net has its own coverage of this week's Canon Global Expo in NYC. Myself and Michael Wisniewski will be reporting throughout the day (as for me, it'll be more toward the later part of the day, but you should here from Michael shortly... he's going in as our very own DV Info Net press agent).

I know there have been plenty of links to other sites, but if you can, try to pay closer attention to our own stuff generated right here. I think we can prove that DV Info Net will have, as usual, the most solid and reliable info.

I'm not into blogging, but I am into getting it right. Stay tuned,

This quote from the site will reassure some members here:

Its Superior Canon Optics and exceptional image processing give you a brilliant HD image. The XL H1 also features uncompressed HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) and SD-SDI (SMPTE 259M) output, as well as Genlock input and SMPTE time code input and output for multi-camera shoots. And, with its customizable open-architecture approach, selectable frame rates including 24F, and multiple output options, you've got exactly the right tool -- every time.

What the heck? The Z1 ships with 50i/60i. This Canon has it too.. but its not turned on??

From the official site:
"With the XL H1's versatile open-architecture approach, you can even customize your HD camcorder to record in both 60i and 50i. (This optional upgrade must be performed by a Canon Service Center.)"

Seems like some weird decisions were made at corporate.. or they just ran out of time and needed to get this thing out without finishing the complete feature set.

<edit>
And this sounds suspiciously like the verbage used by Sony to descibe CineFrame video:
"The XL H1 delivers 1080i HD resolution, along with selectable frame rates of 60i, 30F and 24F. For high-speed subjects 30 Frame delivers spectacular clarity, 24 Frame gives the look and motion of film."

Maybe they really did use the FX1/Z1 CCDs...

So there is a surprise! Uncompressed out via HD SDI? I guess you would need to have some sort of field converter to get to a harddrive, right? Not sure this is useful all the time, but nice that it's there.

I really cannot wait to see their version of 24F. If it's decent, they may have a chance here. Any word on price yet?
