The truth about why no HD video in G11 and S90!
Aug 19, 2009

The truth is that they don’t want to step on their high profit camcorder sales. They know that HD video in the S90 would make it extremely competitive against their $1000 camcorders. They just simply are not ready to do that yet.

However, over the next year they will see Sony and Panasonic capture a huge market share from them and they will release a G12 and S9x with HD video.

Also remember that if these cameras had HD video now then they would be pretty close to perfect for a lot of people’s needs. They would have nothing to add to G12.

Shame on Canon for not giving us the absolute best product they could possible make.
