* JVC's Everio: 30GB hard drive camcorder. This 3 CCD camcorder shoots native 16:9 widescreen images with higher- than- average resolution. Top it off with a headphone jack and accessory shoe, and you're ready to roll. Alas, no tape is needed.
* Panasonic & Sony HD Announcement: Panasonic and Sony Jointly Developed New HD Digital Video Camera Recorder Format for Recording on Disc . This is for acquisition, not distribution. It's called AVCHD: Advanced Video Codec High Definition.
