there is probably a timeout setting in the script for the board.
when I log-in for reply, if it takes a bit more, when I press "submit" then it shows that I'm logged off, and if I log-in again it attemts to go in some page that does not exist.

I guess the PHP script creats a "temp" file for the user to be used as posting page. When the timeout occures this file is destroyed. This is why when pressing the "submit" you end up in no-man's teritory (trying to press a button of a page that does not exist anymore).

whomever has setup the board should be familiar with those things, just let him know you want to... say double, the "posting time-out" and he should be able to do it easy.

I don't have this problem. I did have it but then I added more time to the time-out on my Internet connection. I find this site to be very fast, never a problem and bloat free, unlike a couple that comes to mind I don't want to mention.

Write faster or write off-line. Now there's a thought. :-))

hehe.. yeah... a bit too fast for me =)

maybe you are right... and if there were a persistant connection with the server the page will be preserved ... oh well...

I usually copy the text before pressing "submit" but ocasionaly I forget =)

I have cable connection, so I'm online 24/7 ;-)

Could be glitches in your cable connections, which has nothing to do with PV-GS400/NV-GS400 specs. :-))

Maybe this will be the week when Pana spills the beans. Hopefully Tom will get back to us about his "blast" to Pana head office. Someone should remind him to ask about the CCDs.

hehe.. my connection is rock solid =)
fortified with routers and firewalls =)

by the way.. just got a flashback of setting up my apache web-server.. you know that the open port connection timeout also is setuped by the server (not the script this time) so it's something your web-master can fix.

I wonder what will Pana-Canada send me as an answer :)
if they have not put my name in a spam-filter already :P

yeah.. we are getting close to the "date"... I wonder... why the secrecy with that cam.

by the way, if you have GS100, and look at it in the angle as the GS400 with the open LCD, do you see the buttons behind?
because I don't see any bittons on the GS400 behind the LCD on the posted pics.

Sometimes, I write it in notepad first, then just copy and paste when ready to post.

But then again, might not 'copying and pasting' by pany have been the culprit with those conflicting gs400 specs anyway? hehe! ;) Just a thought.

i still think it might be better off keeping an eye on this page on the Panasonic UK site, as it already has info on the GS400, and a release date. all they are waiting for is an offical photo and official specs

http://www.panasonic.co.uk/camcorder...400b/index.htm

or at least add it to your list of sites to keep an eye on

Talking about clueless. Someone has to fire those incompetent union workers. =)
here,s the latest hit from Pana-Canada:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Thank you for your e-mail to Panasonic Canada Inc.

The PVGS400 has not been released in Canada or the USA. As such, we have no idea where this dealer would be getting the product from. At the present time we have no information regarding specs, operation, pricing, release date etc. to provide to you. We would recommend that you contact us in approx. 2 months, at which time we should have more information..

Thank you for your interest in our products.

Regards,

Panasonic Canada Inc.

All the info about the GS400 are coming from PALsville. So Pany Canada's answer sounds logical to me. I'm getting exactly the same answer from NTSC Pany Japan.

Unless somebody can find real new info, can we PLEASE just wait for the official press release from Panasonic Global? It won't be that long anyway. I don't see any relevant gains from repeating the same info again and again and again and again. It's probably a waste of bandwidth as well.

Here's something official as of yesterday; the upcoming Sony 3-CCD with 1.4.7" CCDs with Sharp like grip, and it's gonna be out in July. :-)).

Allan, some USA cam dealers have been taking orders or pre-orders for 2 months now. Crazy, huh? So that blows holes into Pana's sorrowful attempt at song and dance. :-))

I hope at least the specs will be realeased pretty soon, as Sony has announced the replacement of TVR950 the HC1000.

basically.. the same cam as far as I can tell with lower price.
The release is only for Japan for the time being.

there was some reference to DolbyDigital 5.1 ... but couldn't figure out what the hell they were talking about.

http://www.sony.jp/products/Consumer...000/index.html

looks like this cam will not be competition to GS400 =)
(although it's priced to compete with DV953 model)

but.. wait.. hey.. it's BLACK! ;-)

ps Allan, not all the info is coming from palsville. Most of the info is from there, but there're a lot of signs of PV-GS400.

ps2 GS400 come out in the Pana-SK catalog, but no info, no specs, nor picture. (just the model is mentioned along with GS120 and GS200)
