Ode to the Canon HV20

Discussion is rife within the realm of HD
Concerning a camera that Canon fashioned.
The model number in mind is HV20;
Debate upon this little wonder is impassioned.

In one camp stands those who debate
The merits of MPEG-2 long GOP
In the workflow where they create
Video spots for broadcast TV.

Some others see merit in a small camera
That acts as a backup or second.
For documentary a useful chimera
If only one could find some way to fund.

In a rapidly shifting broadcast landscape
It’s likely that price and demand will arbitrate.
