Okay, you've played around with an entry-level HD camcorder, graduating to the level of auteur. If you're looking for a new cam worthy of your talents, this fall Canon's debuting a couple of high-def camcorders aimed at prosumers just like you. The XH A1 and XH G1 (shown) models both use three 1/3-inch CCD sensors to record HD footage in the 1080i format, saving it to affordable HDV tapes. You can choose between three different frame rates for your creations: 60i, 30F, and 24F. Since you're all about the art, 24F will probably be you're favorite, as it gives material a filmlike quality (though it's not quite the filmmaker-loved 24p), but 30F is there for capturing "high-speed subjects with remarkable clarity," and if you ever shoot a reality TV show, you'd best go with 60i. So how are the two models different? The XH G1 includes Canon's Professional Jackpack Terminals, a trio of connectors that'll give you a little more plug-and-play ability when you're in the studio. The A1 and G1 will be available in October and November, respectively, for $3,999 and $6,999 (man, those pro connectors don't come cheap). Nice to see some progress in making it easy and affordable to shoot anything in HD. So what's So You Think You Can Dance's excuse?
