My guess is that the H1s or H2 will use CMOS chips. Canon's already producing them en mass. I think the A1, G1 and H1 are the last of the CCD cameras from Canon.

Features..

I second the HD-SDI recorder.. I'm really surprised that portable units don't exist yet.. I'm currently employed as a software engineer at a video server company.. I don't know, and I don't claim to know alot about compression or video signals.. but I've discussed it with one of the brain trusts I work with who does and there really appears to be no real limiting technology, it could all be done with a raid array of laptop drives, small portable, and really not needing any huge bank of battieries. My guess is that there really isn't enough money in it to get too many companies very excited at this point, or its an undiscovered market.

Oh yeah.. another thing.. I'd like a camera that could look into the future. That would be cool.

Yes, an HD-SDI recorder that lets you dial in the compression. If it's a chroma key clip, then select lossless compression. If an HDV bit rate is adequate, then select that to store more video.

Best,
Christopher

I can't say too much at the present moment, but we have been working diligently for a while, and will be announcing something significant on Feb 1st.

For those unfamiliar, "we," would be Colorspace -- http://www.colorspaceinc.com
