Canon makes minor update to consumer HDV camcorder
The HV40 is identical to the HV30 with the exception of a new native 24p mode and custom key.
I'm not sure if it's a commentary on Canon, prosumer HDV, or the quality of the original
Though Canon hasn't yet determined pricing, it's slated to ship in March 2009. I don't expect the price to be as low as the HV30, however, and given the minor changes in the new model, I'd snap up one of the older versions, which can be found for less than $600, before they disappear from the market.
