Does any Chinese phrase translate to "Leica Dicomar lens using low dispersion glass"? Thanks!

Ouch! Lots of chroma noise in those stills.

Those stills look much worse than those on the Panasonic site.

Imagine that.

Maybe you shouldn't sell your NV-GS100K-K! (Or are those pics from the PAL version and the Japanese-NTSC version is better---'er, different?)

Apparently the GS400 is shipping in the UK. There are frame grabs posted here.

How much of trouble could I be facing if I copy sample videos taken using the GS400 stored in a DVD-Rom that came with a cam magazine, and upload those avi files in this message board?

There is a lady model appearing in the samples.

I don't see a problem but aren't the files too large to host or are they heavily compressed?

I would definitely like to see them if they are 16:9 or Pro Cinema.

Compression is not bad. They look quite OK (full screen) on my PC monitor. There are 9 avi files. Size ranges from 18.5MB to 91 MB. Playback time ranges from 4 secs to 24 secs.

Allan, do you have somewhere to host these?

If not maybe Guy and fortvir.net can help out?

I've got a FTP site but I don't think I can link externally and my Google email account, while 1GB, is limited to 10MB attachments.

Alan,
You are welcome to post some pix and videos on my website. I had to clear out some space for them since I had exceeded my max storage. Also, anything over 10 Meg may have problems being uploaded into the albums due to php filesize restrictions. I can make an FTP directory available if necessary.

Those .AVI files can be compressed by converting them to WMV or MOV. If you have Windows Movie Maker (comes with XP), just render them to a 1 Mbps WMV file. That way maybe you can upload all of them. I have upped the max filesize limit on my site, but I'm not sure the server will accept it. You can try a 20 MB file to see if it works. That will take a while to upload, though.

I have created a GS400 album on my website for folks to post in.

I just checked the spec in Japanese site and it says yes, using LD glass.

Tony, I meant to ask if the PAL model shown in the HK site is being described to have the same low dispersion glass as the Japanese model. So far, only the Jap model is confirmed to have this kind of lens and this particular feature seems to be such a big deal for Panasonic Japan the way it is highlighted/marketed in their website and printed catalogues (complete with technical illustrations to show its advantages over the glass used in the MX5k/953) ever since it was first used with the GS100.
