Yes, I've seen them in use and the results from same. At the Australian
Formula 1 Grand Prix, as it happens, although I guess they are a fairly
common sports lens.

Cheers,

That is a P&S lens: diffraction limited at 2MP HD video, 9.6 x 5.4 mm
(16:9) 1920x1080. That's what the setup you describe costs if it were
usable at 2MP.

But keep in mind that it's designed for 2MP images. I suspect that it
lacks some sharpnes with a 20MP image. It's also not very portable.
No autofocus. No aperture.

Someone said about $150,000. And this one doesn't even go to 1248mm. But
I'm sure yours does, and at 6MP too.

Canon should be totally ashamed of this (and some others too) HP got this basic and absolutely essential thing right in their little digicam that's cheap even for a P&S, so why can't Canon?!! Yes, I know, there's more to the Canon 20D, b Mike Henley Digital Photography 43 12-15-2004 05:21 PM
