Just a quickie thought.
If anyone has a link in a foreign langauge the best thing to do is locate that particular webpage through Google and click on the "translate" option.

Here is the English version

"A natively progressive recording does not give it"

Seems to answer that question.

hey thats some great Yoda talk.

Interesting this page is. Learn from it you will. But its accuracy, question you must. Curious this statement is:

"Signal processing 8 bits or 10 bits? All signals of the Canon are placed 8-bitig to the order and correspond thereby to the standard."

Strange that would seem... from Canon confirmation do I seek.

Placing 8-bits on a 10-bit protocol is just odd -- so I won't believe it (testing will be easy.) 8-bit data over HD-SDI is just 10-bit data with the bottom to bits set to zero. Canon will have enough sensor precision to deliver 10-bit data over HD-SDI, not doing so doesn't make any sense. When you use the HDSDI feed the camera is just a head, and no longer needs to "correspond thereby to the standard." The standard is then HDSDI, which is 10-bit.

Thanks, David, that's what I'm expecting as well.

The reluctance at this point in time to officially disclose the bit depth of the DSP or the SDI output is a conservative move typical of Canon Inc. (Japan), and in my opinion that policy is more of a back-firing liability to them than anything else. There's nothing like an unconfirmed technical factor to spur controversy.
