1080i24p is the mode - 24p over a 1080/60i signal.

Reducing the 24p signal to native frames would result in a 20% savings in 1080. With 720/24p native recordings the result is 60% savings.

That would be great and is something that should have been implemented in the first place. We can only hope...

I can easily see why someone who has bought the HVX200 be completely shock about a successor coming out so soon. For example I bought the HC1 during the time it came out and now Sony in less than a year came out with the HC3 but at least it has fewer features than the HC1.

When I first heard about the HVX200 I been wanting to bring it with me to Europe last summer but their were 2 problems: One being the price and two it didnít come out soon enough so I ultimately bought the HC1. If what Alfred Appiah says is correct than I will definitely try to get this camcorder the day it came out ASAP. Imagine if it does also mean that their will be an option to record in the H.264 MP4 format.

For now the only thing that will get both HVX200 owners and non owners happy is Panasonic releasing a 16 gig card.

16-gig card was being talked about as probably coming out by the end of the year.

It wouldn't be shocking if an updated model came out in the near future, but I wouldn't expect any huge feature enhancements. What Alfred posted doesn't make sense though... Most of what he said is coming is already a part of the current camera (1080p support, etc..).

And to confirm what Barry says about the 16GB card, it is "expected" sometime later this year. But I don't think Panasonic has officially announced any dates.

Perhaps some of the concern stems from how secretive Panasonic was about this at first, and some from technical assessments of the effectiveness of the result. With HD cameras one of the main design goals is higher resolution, and having sensors with only 25% the number of pixels of the highest output resolution is an impressive stretch. As you say the quality of the results is what matters, and test results for the HVX200 suggest its actual resolution is low relative to other HD cameras. But that doesn't seem to be slowing enthusiasm for this camera, so whether it's a big deal or not is a matter of personal preference.
