I've not heard about the new Canon video cameras yet. I'll have to keep an eye out for them when they're fully announced. I think there will be a lot of competition in the next couple years as more and more photographers go the route of incorporating video into their offerings. It will be an exciting time for all of us.
I'm happy with the quality of my Canon camera so far, though I would have love to move up from HDV to XDCAM at some point in the future. I finally put together a short intro for the documentary I'm working on. It's not by any means finished, but if you get a chance to take a look I'd appreciate any feedback. http://www.vimeo.com/8542516
The website referred to in the movie isn't finished yet - another project coming along in the next couple weeks.
