I have been waiting on a camcorder update prefering them to a DSLR but they have been very thin on the ground.
Any hope for an AX 100 sucessor seems to keep being put off.
These new Canon rigs seem to have at first glace a 1 inch sensor and sound promising.
Not sure of the distinctions between the three units and how/which would be most relevant for underwater use.
Any thoughts or predictions?
Thank you.
Hopefuly.
John

I agree that they look interesting, that's why I also asked for people's thoughts here:

Thanks. I had read through that a while back and it seemed fairly all over the place with not much discussion of those actual camcorders. Though rereading I see them mentionened but not a great deal of discussion. Still early so can aford to wait and see what folks are working with. Am always surprised to hear issues with a promising new rig that would never have occured to me.
Will keep watching. Thanks. John

Since the the new Canons are just coming on the market, there isn't a lot out there yet.  As people learn more about them, I really hope that they share their thoughts.
