JVC GR-X5

JVC's just announced their latest mini DV cam, the GR-X5.  This one has a 1.3MP 3CCD and will take still pictures at 5 megapixels.  And for the would-be filmmaker that doesn't want to go old school with full-frame video, it's also 16:9 compatible. Not to mention that, as you can see, it's pretty small — 88x89x93mm to be exact — and weighs in at just 590g. Pricing details haven't been announced yet.
