Canon have announced two new HDV cameras. The XH G1

http://www.usa.canon...p;modelid=14057

and the XH A1

http://www.usa.canon...p;modelid=14061

They look like they could give the Sony Z1 a hard time.

If these do 24F as well as the XL H1, the A1 could be my next camera. :)

Absolutely, I just checked them out and they're worth considering! Might be a good investment...

How good is the 24F on the XL H1? How does it compare to true 24P?

I love shooting with the DVX100 because of the true progressive image. The HVX200 seems like too much money for what will *probably* be a stop-gap camera with a short shelf life. The new small Canon's make more sense in the short run. The A1 is especially well priced.

I'm wondering if it will have the same color output as the HVX, 4:2:2? I like the fact that it goes to tape instead of cards. I am wondering about it's method of achieving the 24f mode. David mentioned a strange conversion process in regards to another camera, does this so something similar? They are not claiming 24p, but 24f.
