WOW. very nice, you had to be patient to get that close to the grasshopper..!

Yeah, I totally agree with you, some of the reviews made the camera sound pretty terrible. As it is... the results I have seen have been much better than suggested by the reviews.!

Gary,

I think to me the most impressive part when talking about resolution, is in the very first part of the second sample you uploaded, behind the grasshopper there is a piece of spider web... its sooo thin and still rendered beautifully...

It looks like you are using the anti-shake on some of the shots..?

Yes I used anti-shake...all but the grasshopper were handheld. I know from reading previous posts that best results are from anti-shake off. Sometimes I forget....

Anti shake is not always so bad.

Yeah technically speaking it is better with the anti shake off. but I have found it to be very helpful, when I hold the camera with two hands, I support the monitor with the left hand to keep it level and do by tilting by the elbow joints and panning by turning my body, this give me a very steady platform and adding the anti shake to this really do eliminate the small vibrations for a very steady final image. the boxing on my site were shot that way.

Do you know where I can download this codec... google wasn't much help.
You just need a MPEG-4 video decoder, so you can install Divx (but i don't like the crap they install), or try to install Xvid and configure the decoder to decode "mp4v" files.
If you have ffdshow installed, it can do it too.

Greetings

I just wanted to say hello to all and thanks for the info on this camera. I work at a public access television station and have been waiting for a camera of this resolution and price to come along. I have shot on panasonic dvx-100's and Canon xl-1s. I imported the footage Carlos had available, 37 shots avi, into Vegas, exported it as an mpeg 2 and burned it to dvd. I never got this quality resloution for a regular tv signal from either of the above mentioned cameras. The progressive scan is true as well. Beautiful motion and detail. My only question is, did Carlos really use a Sanyo hd-1? Just kidding. All of the footage posted looks great! I am planning on buying at least 2 of these cameras. I do multi cam shoots alot and for the price, this camera is awesome! Thanks also to Bo for the links for mp4toavi and the player link as well. The reason I think this camera got a bad review by many is that there was no extensive effort to handle the mpeg4 files this camera captures correctly by the reviewers. Thanks again,
Arlan

oh yeah

It would be cool if there was a dedicated Sanyo hd-1 user group site. I know its work and I don't want to belittle DVi, but none the less, it would be cool.

I started a thread where people can record their serial numbers, and problems that seem to be fixed on their cameras. To track manufacture fixes Sanyo might implement over time.

Remembering July 7th bombings in London

I've posted some footage up of London during the 2min silence for those who lost there lives in the July 7th bombings last year. I used a 5cm tripod between my legs so its not great but worth checking out if your interested in the quality of the camera on a cloudy day.

I highly suggest people use Archive.org for storage HD footage, because it costs nothing and will be there for ever.

Thanks for the tip, do they allow you to change or remove footage if you want to?
