MiniDV isn't dead, but it's getting close: Canon, at least, has reduced its 2009 MiniDV product line down to a single model geared to the education market. The survivor, the ZR960, is almost identical to 2008's ZR900: it has the same 680,000-pixel sensor, 41x Advanced Zoom lens, and no changes to the chipset. What's new? An LCD-based Quick Start option and support for 30.5mm filters.

No pricing or availability info as yet.
