HD camcorders face limitations

http://www.canada.com/edmontonjourna...c-44dde3dac7c8
Canon HV20 = $1,750.

The article even says that HDV is still hard to playback on current machines.
I guess he never tried using Windows Media player 11 or DIVX to play HDV files.

Hmm, it looks like Canon bumped up the price for Canada... or is that a typo?

That's what I've been quoted in Canada.

Cheaper to order online from the States... our dollar is not that bad.

Once you convert the money I was expecting the price of the HV20 to be a bit high in Canadian dollars but I didn’t think that actual price would go that high.

$1095.00 USD = $1274.00 CDN @ today's $ rate.

Not even close...
Makes me want to buy online. I'll be looking into the DVi sponsors...

That’s what I meant. Meaning I knew it would be higher but I didn’t know it would sell for that much higher. I know that in Europe the prices for camcorders are insane even before all those taxes.

Sorry, I was just agreeing with you. The price in Canada is crazy in comparison.
