    Canon HV20

    Canon has a reputation for leaked information, Circuit City had the HV20 on their site recently.

    But today, Canon announced their HV20, their second HDV camera. It features better low light sensetivity and 24p. Yep, real 24p, no cinema effect, cineframe or 24f. True 24p. People at DVinfo were complaning about the HV10 not being able to shoot 24p, but being able to play back 24f.

    I've never seen a consumer camera with the abillity to shoot in true 24fps. Nor have I seen a consumer camera with 1080p. I am really looking forward to this cam! Now, people will be able to replicate a film look for only $1,099.

    And it has a low lux rating as well. This cam will be the best camcorder of the year, hands down. They could charge twice as much and they would still sell like hotcakes. I am excited about it, way to go Canon, this is revolutionary, giving consumers what they want at a price that is affordable. This makes the GS400, and Gs500 obsolete now and this will be nipping at the heals of the DVX100, (minus the plethora of manual controls) but image quality will be better on even an SD screen.

    I just wish the HV20 had a wider lens, but I can't complain, it has 24p IN HD!

    I know! I am getting one! I was actually considering an HC7 for a little while. Yuck! I'm getting this HV20!

    Does it record in 24fps or with a pulldown?

    Since the Circuit City and Canon Japan site leaks, I thought the speculation was just an exaggeration to play on the emotions of all those shooters seeking features that were once only reserved for pro-level cameras and never attainable in a $1,000 camera.
    But now that would appear to be untrue.
    They really did it. They actually gave a consumer level camera real 24p with a pro level cinema setting, low light rating, new focus settings/focus assist, HDMI, and a host of other little goodies.
    One of the first consumer level cameras I actually kinda like.

    From here
    "The process uses a 2:3 pulldown for recording to tape. The 24p option is available only in HD mode, not in SD mode."

    Wow! I like the form change from the HV10, also. The new design looks more ergomonic.

    Looks like XLR audio is possible with an adapter! Plus, this includes HDMI out.

    I have a Sony HC3 that will be up for sale...

    Considering the appeal of the XHA1, Canon is kicking butt in the HDV space.
