Personally I can't wait for the day when camcorders got disk drives in them. That way you could record uncompressed on 360 GB drives (in theory). I think DVD's is the wrong way to go. Just another format to keep track of - like CD, MD, miniDV, MX, Digital8...

Yeah, get us out of the compression wars. MPEG-2 is a step backward from the DV format, so that's not going to help.

Hello Guy,
I attended one of your DV Rev seminars in Chicago last year. You did a really fine job. At that time you (DV Creators) were focused on FCP as the nle medium. Now it looks like you're picking up the new Pinnacle line. Just curious as to why? Pinnacle must be putting on a hard press to get their product on the shelf.

New Toys from Canon: Powershot & EOS digicams

Drool alert:

Powershot S230, replaces S200: now 3 megapixels, same great super-compact Elph size and shape, vastly improved movie modes (30 sec VGA w/audio, up to 3 minutes at smaller sizes):

http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/s230/index.html

Powershot G3, replaces G2: now 4x optical zoom, still 4 megapixels, enhanced movie mode, better signal processing, better ergonomics:

http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/g3/index.html

EOS-1DS, nothing special, only 11.1 megapixels, yes you're reading that right, this one goes to 11, which is one louder, isn't it. The CMOS chip is the same size as the 35mm image plane! And you can buy it for pocket change, only $9000, which is just chicken feed really:

Go scrape those quarters off the dresser,

That 11 megapixel camera is mind-boggling, isn't it? And you're right. A $9,000 expense in a professional environment is very modest if it can produce the quality of images that this camera's specs suggest.

Well, I must admit to being somewhat tongue-in-cheek about the price, but any serious journo working for a respectable publication isn't going to bat an eye at that.

Many folks unable to justify a $2000 EOS-D60 (myself included) are wondering about a digital version of the EOS Rebel... it will happen, probably 4 or 5 megapixels at around $1000; only a matter of time I think.

The other big thing about the EOS D1s is that we are finally seeing 1:1 CCDs. Who knows, mabe this means we might see increases in video camera CCD sizes in the not to distant future.

If a video camera were able to use a 1:1 CCD, that would greatly enhance the feasability of using film camera lenses, would it not?
What is the likelyhood of seeing a descendent of the XL1 with an EF mount lens in the future, at a price hopefully less than $9000?

That'd make a lot of people happy. Including me.

Dylan,

When that happens would you please come visit me at the home and let me hold you new camera? I promise not to drool on it. You're not only going to need 1 chip that size, but 3 and a prism to go with it. CMOS chips use much less power, but still a 10 to 15 pound camera by the time you add batteries and all. Even more with a big pro lens. The cameras get huge just going to a 2/3 inch chips.

MPEG 2 compression is definitely backwards... since it is also
compressed indeed. And I hope it is I-frame only because it
will be a pain to edit otherwise. I'd suggest uncompressed
or lossless compressed too. That shouldn't be too much of a
problem.... But I would be happy with variable fps, 4:4:4
DV stream on a harddisk.... Ah, throw in a higher resolution
too... Who says we can't dream. But that will not happen anyway
since the DV specs don't allow for any of that.
