Not recording, just in-camera deinterlacing to progressive... huuuge difference!
(If it was on recording, it would need almost double the bitrate and therefore the file size too -but it would worth it!)

Actually no, GY-HM100 cannot record 1080p50/60 either!

But, I like it very much, thanx! It must be an amazing little camera to have, just 1.4kg with professional features, quality and instant workflow (at least for Macs using Final Cut Pro) writing at 35Mbit/s on SDHC cards! It reminds me the JVC JY-HD10U, the first HDV "Pro" camcorder (which I still have -as a collector's piece of course), it's the same form factor.

This is a *very* clever move for JVC to focus on the consumer's needs and do a proper research to find out these needs and also to collaborate with Apple!
Congrats to JVC! :)

Then buy this: Digital camera | TOP : VPC-HD2000 | SANYO

Yes I am also looking forward to see it, well done JVC, and what is your opinion on Sanyo's small wonder and Full HD 1080p first ever consumer camera?

I've seen a raw sample from the previous model DMX-HD1000 with slow moving subjects which was sharp and of high quality, but on another one with much motion on the frame it was unacceptable -because the bitrate (in both clips) was only about 12Mbs!

Fortunately, on the 2000 model they doubled the bitrate (at full quality), so I expect it to be a very good tiny camcorder! I'm looking forward for some raw samples from this one.

Of course the JVC we were talking, is of another class (Pro) with a different format (HDV), manual controls, 3CCD, better lens etc and obviously it will deliver higher quality pictures, but Sanyo DMX-HD2000, for its class, with the advantage of 1080p60, will be unique!
It's AVCHD format will be a bit easier to edit than a AVCHD interlaced model, with much less artifacts since it is progressive, but compared to HDV models, it will require a more powerfull PC and an NLE with "smart rendering" to avoid taking ages. The only problem I see is it's lens (44.4mm @35mm equivalent) with it's lack of wide-angle support (we can't have it all). Anyway, 1080p60 is a totally different world! EDIT: Not to mention that in low (Web) resolutions it offers 240fps @ 448 x 336 and 600fps @ 192x108 for high-speed shooting experiments!
