Clayton, I think that's what Pete's referring to. There's even a domain dedicated solely to the September 30th announcement. http://www.hdv-info.org/

The official site is

www.hdv-info.org

but there are no details posted yet, just the press release.

Canon's involvement in this, together with the advent of lower cost CMOS sensors and the fact that the XL2 is not predicted to come out for at least a year or so, i'd have to say that this all points to it being HD.

I think an impressive new product that shows more or less what direction this all is going is the Kodak Pro14n(?) digital SLR camera. It has a CMOS sensor the size of a 35mm frame and captures something like 13megapixels, and costs somewhere around $4k.

<begin joke>
now, the burst rate is at least 3fps, so we should all chip in and get 8 of these, hookem together in front of a good lens and a mega beam splitter. voila.
<end joke>

Seriously, it would be nice if it had at least an analog video out but that created NTSC video using some of the chip resolution...but i think usually they just have a really low res(320x240?) output...might be wrong.

This camera has very few satisfied users. It's low light performance is dismal and suffers from a severe noise problems under some conditions. The Canon 1Ds is a much better camera by all accounts but is several thousand dollars higher and still only 3 fps.

Jeff,

What do you know about the Sigma SD9? Have heard some good things, but also have learned not to trust everything I hear! I know it only records in "Lossless compression RAW data (12bit)" where as the Canon 1D does RAW data 12bit and JPEG. Which would you recommend?
