Remember, we've got to see how this AVCHD dance goes before choosing any winners. =)

We don't know who'll win - that's true - but it clearly won't be the HD1!

I don't like moving parts either but I'll bet that a spinning disc unit from Sony is going to be more reliable than the moving parts in the "lens assembly" of the Sanyo HD1.

Very true - but now that I'm used to not having to load and replace and consider internal transport, reverting to DVD or tapes would just seem like a step backward.

Panasonic has already indicated they will be using AVCHD on SD based camcorders, which seems logical since they already have the 3CCD SR100 series in standard definition.

Be interesting to find out if the eprom from the HD1a can be copied and used to update the HD1. Assuming the HD1a is the same unit with firmware updates, it just might work.

Well, the screen is different.

But it might work, if someone knew how to load in the new firmware.

Or they might offer the HD1a's firmware as a HD1 firmware upgrade themselves on a page online - like they did for that earlier Xacti model.

According to the Sanyo Rep, it looks like the differences between this and the last model is pretty much as listed:

Notice, how he is sneakingly avoiding my questions.

Any Sanyo HD1 clips?

Hello, people out there:
Does anyone of you know where to find any sample clip of this camera?
In camcorderinfo.com someone said the optura 600 of canon (SD camcorder) produces better video than the sanyo HD1 or 1A; and also: "This camcorder does not deserve to be called HD. Donít get fooled", to be exact.

Hello Alex,

Sounds like a lot of opinion in that statement to me. Clips from the HD1 can be found all over this site. You can use them to make your own judgement call. To my knowledge, there are no sample clips from the 1a yet.

From my experience, this camera is neither broadcast quality HD nor lower grade SD, rather it is somewhere in between. Interestingly, it's also priced somewhere in between. I wonder if there's a connection... ;)

Akihabaranews still not liking HD1 or HD1a.

http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/news...n+new+HD1.html

Yet if that movie capture image they are criticizing is really from HD1a, it may be possible that they fixed the diagonal problem. It's blown up so much to show zaggies anyways but the patterns are even on both diagonal directions! :)

But then of course, the image maybe not be from HD1 at all. If you didn't fix it you'd want to avoid revealing the infamous bug on their ad, wouldn't you?
