Canon has announced a load of new cameras – The HF S10, HFS100, HF20, HF200, HV40 and a half dozen more.
The HV40 retains the HV* tradition of tape-based HDV, plus the ability to record to memory cards. The rest of the line is AVCHD to a variety of recording mediums, but adding the 24mbps AVCHD mode that’s all the rage these days.
A nice bump across the line, and they’ve still got the mic input, which makes them loads cooler than anyone else. (Are you listening, everyone else?)
