Gizmodo has a hands-on with the Canon HD Vixia HF10

Hands On: Canons HD Vixia HF10 and HF100 Need No Tape

The announcements from Canon are very exciting, an update to the HV20 and the new tapeless HF10 and HF100. Especially for south of $1000. One thing conspicuously missing  from the announcement are the compression format. They do say that you will be able to record 16 hours in 16 GB… Are they using that crappy H.264 that all the solid state camcorders use? Also sucky is the non-standard accessory shoe, although better none certainly.

If we can get a very minor compression, an adapter to a standard accessory shoe, and a lens adapter like for the HV20, this could be very exciting indeed for the price.
