Canon XH-A1 relating to BlueRay

What significance, if any, does BR vrs HD have to do with my 'soon to arrive" Canon XH-A1, subsequent HD Video editing software
(Studio Pinnacle Ultimate 11) and my new HD DVD burner ?
Hopefully all this hype is just about TVs...

Your HD DVD burner is now obsolete.

It will soon join the Betamax.

The XH-A1 is fine. It knows nothing about HD DVD or Blue Ray. It simply shoots and records high definition video. It can also, of course, also shoot standard definition.

I don't know about your editor. If it doesn't support Blue Ray, you may be out of luck. Sony Vegas, BTW, does support Blue Ray.

Thanks for the bad news

...but at least Pinnacle allows for Blu-Ray editing, so it's not as bad as it could be...and thankfully, as you noted, the filming part of the process isn't affected. There are issues to be resolved, so I think it continues to be a waiting game. The industry may have spoken, but consumers will have the final word. I'm not selling the farm just yet. Thanks much for the input.
