    Yeahhhhhhh. There went my iPhone money. I was so going to get an HV10, especially after the Canon HV10 demo. What was it at like 1/30th shutter and it looked crazy-good.

    Waiting paid off. I see the Cine setting thing, my question is will you be able to adjust the settings or are you stuck with the preset only? I don't care if you are, that's what post is for. Can't expect much from a one-thousand dollar camera.

    Where's that thread where some guy stuck an M2 on his HV10?

    as far as i can tell, there is still no external mic jack. you are limited to the proprietary hotshoe.

    The microphone input on the HV20 is a standard 3.5mm stereo mini jack, and there is an accessory mounting shoe on top of the camcorder (more about this in a minute). Manual audio level control is an option which may be chosen from the camera menu. The two audio channels are ganged together when adjusting audio levels; there is no separate left and right control. Audio levels can be displayed in viewfinders if desired.
    There is a mic jack.

    well, that seals it then. this is the ideal camcorder for picking up b-roll, behind the scenes coverage, as well as the documentarian and the no budget filmmaker.

    Chris Hurd has a pretty good write up on it.

    If we can expect that same quality yet in 24p cadence, I can't see why this camera wouldn't be fit for narrative work to a degree. B-Roll, and that sorta stuff.

    What will this do to the competition? Will the other manufacturers try to keep up and offer 24p as well?

    The reason that Canon didn't put RAW support on their G7 was to protect the sales of their DSLRs... Sales of your expesnsive things goes down when you put such features on low end models.

    Also, does this offer manual gain control? It would seal the deal.

    If it's only one cmos chip. How is the picture going to compare to the 3 chip CCD that are in the xl-h1 and g1 and a1 series?

    i don't know how useful this is. probably not at all considering the compression, but here is some footage i shot when i first bought the HV10 a month ago. it blows away anything comparable in its class. [link]
