The folks over at camcorderinfo.com managed to get an exclusive peek at Canon's new HDV XL-2 video camera. The formal announcement from Canon should be coming later this week at the Canon EXPO event happening in New York City. They are also reporting that this new HDV XL-2 will only record in 1080i and not 720p. Also the XL-2 will not support 24p. Expect to pay at least $10,000 for this beast. More confirmed details will come later this week after the formal announcement.
