Canon's making room ... ???

Looks like Canon's making room for more models.

Or maybe they're just running out of space with all the models they have in production.

Ya never know -- hope so!

Interesting that much has been made in the past about the GL2 and XL2 being put out by the consumer division of Canon...mainly as a reason (excuse?) why a particular feature wasn't included or up to professional par, like the XLR Line-In that so many folks were upset about.

If they're clearly delineating them as a line of professional cameras, one does wonder what will be filling that white space next to the XL2 and GL2 pictures on the pro part of the web page.

I love my XL2, but I'll love an HD version of it even more. C'mon Canon, give us all a nice surprise this spring!

EDIT: I just also saw that the Canon site is also advertising FireStore now...if it was there before, I didn't notice it. But I ain't spending any more money on toys until well after NAB!

Wow! An XL2 with Hi-Def? It sounds like a winner to me. I just wonder how much farther out of reach the XL2 would become after that. Becau$e of the co$t, the current XL2 is jus$t a dream for $omeone like me. Ok, for heaven $akes I'll $top the dollar $ign thing now.
$incerely, $teve

An XL2 with HD would not be an XL2. Such a major upgrade would at least bump it to a XL3, if not spawn a completely different product line altogether.
