"A fast, wide-angle, Canon HD Video lens (30.4mm, F1.
brings professional image quality to a compact camcorder. Features a shockless, variable speed 10x optical zoom and 8-blade iris for more attractive bokeh effect."
How a 30.4 mm could be a wide angle ? Is it a medium format sensor ? no it's a 1/3'' ... 30.4 is a long lens on such a small sensor ... maybe it's a 3.4 mm and a typo ??
And thank you Mr Canon for the "8-blade iris for more attractive bokeh", but I doubt we'll be able to see a lot of bokeh
with a 1/3 cmos sensor, even at 1.8 ! the term "bokeh" seems now to be mandatory in every technical description ...
(quite a unique exemple of a french word, misspelled by japaneese and re-injected in western languages ...)
