Not bad pricing but I still can't afford it.
I don't believe either device includes the necessary connecting cable, now $290 at B&H, giving a total cost of $4220 (as of 11/23/09), sadly, also beyond my means.

Hi Nick
Is it true that the nearest focus is about 0,9m?
Did not catch the dealer today - I'll try tomorrow !!
Next - must have - for the camera is an underwater case and a splashbag.....
I'll love just to put the camera down into the river - and not having to be there myself - it would a give a lot of possibilityes in nature documentaries.

Hi Bo,

I've just done a test and the nearest focus is about 20mm from the front of the camera housing. It has a focus assist function where it expands the central portion of the picture to aid focusing. There is also a little bar (turned on in the display options) that increases to indicate when the image is sharp.

We are going to be working on an underwater housing for the camera very soon.

Great - maybe the focus distance is one of the things they have changed from the first specifications - and that is great.
I'll try the dealer again tommorow - no luck today either...

Got it !

Got the camera and I cant wait to use it in nature. Seems it takes stunning pictures. I have not found a way to manual focus it - just to push autofocus to focus and then it locks when you take your finger away from the botton. ATW works the same way - it can be put on a user button and when you release it it locks ATW.
Strange way to work with it but it works. I would have loved to be able to start focusing with one hand but you need to use both hands to focus, when you hold the recorder in your hand.

Because it is not so light sensitive it takes longer before you have to use shutter in daylight - at least I think - have not had light enough to try yet.

Premiere CS4 imports the files with no problem and the panasonic transcoder to DVCProHD works fine too when files go into CS3.

Next project is to find someone that produce a underwater housing for the camera, a raincover for the AG-HMR10 and finnaly bigger batteries for the recorder.

So far, this set absolutely fullfills my expectations.
