That would suprise me greatly - I would expect experts to complain
long and loudly if the camcorder only recorded 4096 colors - that
should be readily detectable by eye.

However, I can't seem to find any specific mention of color
information on the canon website or the manual.  I would be surprised
if the Digic II processor reads anything less than 24 bits per pixel
off the CCD, but perhaps someone can take apart the mp4 encoded stream
and tell us what the encoded color space really looks like.
