Have you got definite confirmation, details, models, or timing on that?

I find this interesting, the HD version have around 450MW-1W of power consumption, thats a lot for a Mobile.

That camera on their homepage, is that a JVC or Sony?

you would not shoot hd resolution with a cellphone, so the power consumption would be a whole lot less... divide it by a factor of 4 or more, depending on the frame size... what i saw awhile back was an obscure japanese website that referenced h.264 in cellphone engineering; i think that a lot of what is happening there is proprietary, which is why you don't see much on it.

thanks for the links... it's funny how the people that write for camcorderinfo.com are so technically inept.

not sure what that camera picture is? unless it uses h.264, i personally would not buy this sanyo... greater things are coming! i was very impressed by the fact that it had an external mic jack, tho.

Although, at last year's MacWorld keynote address Steve Jobs was talking about the upcoming implementation of H.264. He said it was a highly efficient codec capable of being 'scaled' from cell phone all the way to full HD resolution. So I think it's likely we will see it show up as a content delivery method to cellphones and perhas as an acquistion codec for their implemented video cameras.

Time will tell...

Found out some interesting stuff about that ambarella h264 chip (data rates and pro version) and am starting a new thread here:

There has been an announcement of a new Samsung h264 camera:

No seriously, I think the pro applications would be to mount them in places where you would not otherwise be able to mount other HD cams. A few examples that come to mind - skydiver's helmet, four of them at different parts of a racing car for different views around a lap, etc...

Thanks for the footage link Wayne, I was looking for that !

Look at the 0.6X wide lens :) looks funny.

EDIT:

Just viewed the footage, not as bad as I thouught it would be, BUT guys take a look at the wepage that Wayne posted:

http://www.akihabaranews.com/news-10951-AKIBA+Sanyo+Xacti+DMX-HD1%2C+the+monster!.html

and view the FLASH VIDEO, this was actually shot on the XACTI HD1 (from what I gather) and downsized for web compression and it looks very good indeed

Yes, I am interested in a camera for high movement footage too, and the 9Mb/s sample footage isn't complex enough to tell anything, and I would prefer 25MB/s h264 myself.

Anhar, that footage (first file) comes up as 1280*720 in vlc, what is it coming up as in yours?

Here are some comparison links of h264, WMV and mpeg2 frames from a DVD transcoder called Nero Recode (in NeroVision Express 3):

I've been keeping an eye on ebay to see when the DMX-HD1 shows up. Looks like it just did. Pretty expensive though!

Anhar, are you sure the flash window contains footage from the Sanyo HD1 camera?

Thanks

Yes Wayne I'm pretty sure, he uses the remote control to switch it off. Also it was discussed over at camcorderinfo, hence from the disscussion I was able to find out that it was shot on the Sanyo, the outdoor was very nice and indoor shots of the big projection was very clean as well, however with that web compression it is difficult to be sure.

P.S you spelt my name wrong :)

So somebody had definite confirmation of that, it was a Sanyo remote in his hand?

Can anybody tell me how I can download that footage to a file, because it just goes troppo trying to play in flash and then wants you to reload it to play it again, argh..? (flash video controls)
