Roman, what happened with your meeting?

While you are there, could you ask if it is possible for somebody to arrange to get a camera SDK/limited SDK, so I can program a new compression scheme? But do this after you find out about everything else.


Thanks

Wayne.

Hello Guys yesterday I got my camera back from Sanyo. Camera was not in need of repairs I was told by Mr. Duarte So my purple dog , leaves and terrible low light footage are just part of my imagination. Personally I’m DONE with Sanyo I’m giving my camera to my sister she is 10 to play with. I was lucky I was able got hold of Sony FX 1E camera.

Yes, I suspect they think it is suitable "consumer" quality, though I rarely meet a consumer with a "purple" dog. Some people might think this makes Sanyo look less than top (hint*2) but how good can we expect outside the top manufacturers? If the video codec function, function, and reliability of this camera was on the level of the JVCHD1/10 it would really shine, which is great for consumer (I like XDCAM HD quality for low end professional).

Pity, I beautiful camera in ways.


Thanks Roman.

Roman some thoughts have been occurring to me recently:

Maybe when they say that a purple dog is not a defect, that purple lines are not a defect, and other such things, they are really saying that even though it is a problem it is within the expected range of performance of the camera. I also wonder if the diagonals blocking problem might be some Mpeg4 specification issue, which would mean it is a hitch of mpeg4 performance, or that there could be some codec/viewer out there that would display it properly.

I'm not saying these things are ideally acceptable to us, but that they might never have designed the camera to be without them.
