As an A1 owner, I'm thrilled that it is in the same ballpark as the more expensive cams. The only thing that really impressed me enough to justify the extra money on the other cams was the XL-H1's low light sample. All I can say is "wow"!

No, I will not provide the information. The hack voids warranties, and I'm not really looking to get Sony tweaked at me. It's out there.... just like hacks for other cameras. I don't at all advocate the procedure, I'm just saying that the two imagers are the same.

Wayne, the only threads I've seen have been rather like the HD1 thread we were both on earlier this week - i.e., promising, not fully developed, and kinda left hanging in mid-air...

As long as were asking for more test images, I would like to see either actual clips or stills from cameras while doing a slow tilt. This would be of a resolution chart primarily. If there is no motion, 1080i should have an advantage. My question is how much the res degrades on the interlaced during motion.

Available when?

HDV at 720p ?

It seems that many of the HDV experts are on this thread. I was waiting for the HVX-200, but am re-thinking the possibility of going HDV. I shoot mostly sports, and really want to stay with progressive scan. I haven't yet reseached the HDV market - are there camcorders that record in 720p, perhaps at 30 fps ? I would favor a handheld instead of a shoulder camera.

The JVC HD1 and HD10 are (slightly bulky) handhelds that record 720p30, 480p60, and DV.

Mark,

Graham mentioned the 480p60 mode of JVCs. It is definitely better than DV, 60 frames, progressive. Slow-mo, stills without all that interlacing problem. Plus you still have the other alternatives.

Mark.. If you shoot sports I would really think you would be better off with interlace at 50/60i rather than 25/30p progressive. 60P would be nice, but thats gonna cost megabucks.
