I don't see a big difference in size.

Not big but considerable. 28% percent more.

At least a step in the right direction, instead of going down to 1/8".

Actual specs are at www.sony.jp/products/Consumer/handycam/PRODUCTS/DCR-HC1000/spec.html. 37 mm filter thread size, 780g (w/out battery, I think) which puts it in the weight range of the gs100k. No BT, Frank, so they heard you. Even comes with Mac compatible software. There's an accessories page, also, with several WA lenses and several teleconversions - and a wimpy looking mike with a white (or pale) muff that seems to be connected with the 5.1 surround sound. You can see a reference to VAIO; could be tied to use with Sony's computers.

Question: why isn't this all being discussed in the Sony forum? I saw a few remarks, but remarkably little enthusiasm.

i find that most forums apart from this one lack enthusiasm and there is not as much info as there is on this site.

heh i think that the 5.1 in this cam will present problems. how do they stop noises like breathing etc being picked up. For those that like to dub also this means that you wont be able to because the channels used for dubbing will be used. another thing is that the best quality recording will be 12db. That probably wont be a problem to most people because they will dub with their computers and most people probably only shoot with 12db instead of 16 or whateva it is. I speak for myself here.

Yes, Boyd is waiting with open arms. :-))

It's good to talk about the competition here, so we can tear them apart. Actually, comparing with the competition will makes us Pana owners stronger. This forum is a cult, after all. :-))

Worse. The cult members in California a few years ago who all got into their "pods" to follow their leader to the great beyond.

28 percent more is a lot in a small video camcorder. Cults are no good. They suck you in and steal your money. I wish to never belong to any cult. If this place is a cult I do not believe it. I just want good camcorder information from here and Panasonic. I think Panasonic is best. The more I come and read here the more I want one. I have to go now but I will be back tonight.

28% bigger, but with 24% more pixels...
so there you have it, no difference at all if it's not for the number of pixels.

Sony Japan rates minimum lux requirement at 11 lux. I'd bet Sony N.A. would rate it at 6 lux or lower :-))

Yeah, the look leaves something to be desired but more than likely it will have the same high quaility 16:9 mode of the PDX10 since they are both 1/4.7" 3CCD with 1070k pixels each.
