The sensors of the EX1/EX3 is quoted as which is bigger. Anyway, Even the cheep HD camcorders that costs $100 to $250 have sensors that are 1/2.5.

1/2.5" would be exactly halfway between 1/2" and 1/3" or .40" - at least it's not 1/6" like of lot of panys but I wouldn't be expecting alot of dof properties on larger sensors - that said , for the price , these cameras look very nice - let's see some samples and hope the bitrate gives some nice images

At 24 Mb/s, that's almost double what the HD1010 does, so that is VERY good news. Question is, does it maintain that data rate at 1080p30 too? Or is it only for 1080p60.

As for the 0.4x wide angle lens.... yes it does vignette considerably at full wide, however if you zoom in to 1.2x, the vignetting disappears.

The 40.5mm thread means the 1010 accessories will work on the new 2000. That is also good news.

By the way, neither the HD1010, nor the 2000 when it comes out, can hold a candle to the Sony PMW-EX1. The EX1 is an absolutely amazing, and ground breaking, camera.

Just had a quick look at the specs and wondered what size the stills are for the 12 fps sequential shooting facility? And is there a duration limit on how long you can shoot them for? Might have an application for us alternative imaging guys if favourable...

EDIT: sorry, just saw that sequential shooting: 4 mgp stills at 12 fps is only for a total of 15 photos, 8 mgp stills at 6 fps is only for a total of 9 photos. Oh well.

Reading the specification PDF referenced above, 1080p30 appears to correspond to Full-SHQ: 1920 x 1080 (30 fps/ 12Mbps)

And for 1920x1080 60i, it’s 16MBPS. Around the same as Sony’s.

Nice one John! LOL! You're exactly right though! I doubt Sanyo would have the balls to put any Xacti camera up against an EX1!

It [the HD2000] seems to be an interesting and fun camera:
-1080/60p @ 24Mb/s is cool
-External (2.5mm) mic input (Sennheiser MKE 400 whoo!)
-240fps and 600fps (web size :-P ) - interesting
-HDMI out - nice

EIS instead of OIS is a bummer, but you can't get everything, eh?

I'd love to be able to download some stills and video from it.

answered my own question
>>The 240fps mode uses 448 x 336, and the 600fps mode 192 x 108, which isn't going to be tremendously useful most of the time. The video is then played back at 60fps, giving you 25 per cent and 10 per cent slow-mo respectively.<<

I own the HD1010 (and the EX1), but I find the motion/compression artifacts to be horrendous on the 1010. I could do without the 1080p60 if only they would offer the 24Mbps at 1080p30.

There will be no advantage to 1080p60 over 1080p30 as the compression/motion artifacts will probably be comparable. Only you will have them in twice as many frames at p60.

The 1010 is a fun little camera and while I would like the improved stills capability, without an improvement in the video quality I will not be upgrading.

I’ve played back a clip on my PS3 that I posted here http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/mpg4-sany...ml#post1014316 and it plays back extremely smoothly but there is just one problem, it takes around 43 to 44 seconds just to play back a 29 second clip. I’m pissed that it doesn’t play it at normal speed but at least I know how smooth the picture quality would look if you want to use this camera for slow motion shots at full HD resolution.

I own the Sany VPC-FH1. It's a nice little camera with the exception that the digital IS doesn't work very good.

The new Pani TM700 should be the best tiny cam this year. OIS ~~~~ yeah!

cheers
