I was reading over the specifications for the HF S10 and it's got some pretty exciting improvements that popped right out at me:
1. 24Mbps AVCHD
2. HDMI 1.3 and x.v.Color
I'm not sure how the stuff will be recorded to take advantage of the x.v.Color feature. But if it has the right recording style in AVCHD it could really help squeeze a lot more though the 8-bit pipe. As Anyone who has been around here a while knows, I'm obsessed with squeezing as much dynamic range out of these little toys as possible. So any improvements in that area get me all excited.
I wonder if the Black Magic Intensity is upgradeable to HDMI 1.3 (I have one) If that is the case it could mean some interesting improvements to direct HDMI capture.
