Canon XL H1 High Definition Camcorder

Canon XL H1 High Definition Camcorder

Canon today unveiled its very first high-definition camcorder. And while it may be for the pros (think TV news, documentary and feature filmmaking), the XL H1 Camcorder ($9000; available in November) could bring some major firepower to your home movies if you've got the cash to drop. It delivers crystal clear 16:9 HD video at 1080i resolution and features selectable frame rates of 60i, 30F and 24F, and Canon's professional
"Jackpack" terminals.

    For a while now, we’ve been searching for the perfect pocket camera — and we think we’ve found it. Nikon’s new Coolpix P1 ($550) brings together features to give you both more professional-level control and make your point-and-shoot experience better — such as built-in Wi-Fi for wireless printing and transfer, 8 Megapixels of resolution, a 10-step aperture priority mode, and an auto focus mode that automatically detects faces and focuses on them. The only bad news: it’s not shipping yet.
