The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will be held in Las Vegas next week. The list might grow...

Thanks for that info. So, which are the models thus far? (Except the ones mentioned on this furum.)

CES is just starting today, so it will be the end of the week before all of the news is out.

See our Industry News forum for coverage.

1080i is much more common and available now. I'm up to date on Canon's line but have had little time to keep up with Sony, Panasonic, JVC, Sanyo and others. If anybody else is willing to help build this list, I can contribute what I know about the Canon consumer HD lineup.

current Sony offerings:

SR10/SR11/SR12 - HDD & MS Duo/AVCHD spec'd at 1920

UX10/UX20 DVD/AVCHD, spec'd at 1920

Just for the sake of confusing things a bit, let's presume for a moment that the difference between 1440 (HDV spec, and most previous gen cameras, some of which announced 1920 sensors, but recorded to 1440 per HDV spec) and 1920 is at least to some degree marketing ("it goes to 11", that makes it louder!!), and include the remaining HD cameras...

HC9 (replaces the HC7) - tape/HDV, 1440 not 1920, due to spec limitation of HDV format (?)

CX7 - MS Duo/AVCHD, again 1440 not 1920. I'm speculating that a "CX9" may be announced as a replacement, but nothing other than a few vague rumours as of yet.

FX7 - tape/HDV, again 1440, discontinued recently, the possibility of an "FX9" is certainly out there, but again, nothing announced or even rumoured!

There's a difference between maximum recordable resolution, for a given recording format, and resolution of the image that can be acquired by the lens/sensors of a given camera. I'd be pretty surprised if any consumer camcorder (or any sub $10k professional camcorder, aside possibly from the PMW-EX1) can actually acquire an image with 1920 vertical lines of resolution. I doubt most can even achieve 1440.

I think this list would be most helpful if it included the current models of all the various consumer HD formats... AVCHD, HDV, etc. and do we really need to draw a distinction between 1440 and 1920 on a consumer camcorder anyway. Feature set is more important to me (mic input, manual audio level control, etc.)

As promised, the Canon line-up for the first half of 2008 is five camcorders:

HV30 (HDV)
HR10 (AVCHD to disc)
HG10 (AVCHD to drive)
HF100 (AVCHD to card) / HF10 (AVCHD to int. flash plus card)

This is a listing of consumer HD camcorders available at B&H. I believe that all of them record 1080 line video (aside from the Samsung SC-MX10 - not sure what it records, but with a single 680k pixel CCD, it is certainly not an HD camera). Seems like a pretty comprehensive list of what is currently available.

You also have the Hitachi DZ-BD9H, DZ-HD90, Toshiba GSC-A100F, Samsung SC-HMX20C, and since the Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1 camera has a 1920x1080 60i video mode, that should be included on the list as well.

Anyone wants to list newer HD camcorders which stand out in image quality? (Hopefully with true 1080i resolution.)

I am especially interested in producing good quality slow motion clips for sports (volleyball, golf, ...) -- on MiniDV recordings I've used VirtualDub and split interlaced frames into their own (upscaling was thus necessary), and I've got smooth 50fps out of original 25fps, so, interleced mode, more fps and high res, is desired.

Some of the newer Sony HD cameras might work real well for that.
