New Lenses on the way...

Canon planning to launch at least a new wide for the Xl H1 third or forth quarter this year (directly from the horse mouth). They will probably not announce at NAB, because NAB is more into the broadcast segment, where XL H1 appearently does not belong (?).

Glad to hear the horse mouth is saying something. Third or 4th quarter is a very long time to wait when the camera was released 4th quarter last year. I hope they don't just make an an HDV version of the 3x lens. Give us a good 12x or 13x wide angle lens so I can shoot documentaries here in the small apartments of NY.

Actually the camera was announced Q4 of last year but not released until Q1 of this year. And that would be consistent with Canon's history. Remember the XL1 was announced Q4 of 1997, shipped Q1 of 1998, and the first additional lenses (other than the stock lens) came later in Q3 of 1998. In this business, history usually repeats itself.

While We're All Dreaming

I'd like to see a XL2s that records Mpeg4 with 4:4:4 sampling and 24 bit audio. Oh and variable frame rates would be nice too.
