In the first half of 2007, JVC will bring out a true HD camcorder. The camcorder will have a hard drive built in so you can forget about tapes forever. The size of the drive, unknown, but I wouldn't be surprised if would hold at least a "vacation's" worth of video at its 1920 x 1080 resolution. The camera has 10X optical zoom and they had one setup filming a rotating flower display while they showed it on a 1080 plasma. With the "source material" there for direct comparison, the cam looked better than anything I've seen in a consumer format. No price yet.
