CCD HD cameras with 25P < 1000

I was making a list of HD cameras with 25P mode, and guess what. There is only 1 under 1K. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 (OR ZS3 in 30P land). It uses 25P wrapped in 50P container.

ALL other cameras either do 24P or 30P if they are CCD, or they use a CMOS sensor that is unusable under fluorescent lighting.

The other camera is the Panasonic HDC-SD9 under 1K. But it has 1/6" sensors and the low light is terrible. The compressions is 17mbps for 1080p - which is twice the compression that the TZ7 uses - 17mbps for 720P.

If I am missing something please let me know.

There is at least another under 1k, also from Panasonic, the waterproof DMC-FT1 shooting 1280x720/30 and 25p (24p for the north american version, DMC-TS1). The sensor block is 12.1 million pixels vs 10 million pixels in the TZ7. It shoots surprisingly good video for its size and nothing beats it in terms of portability and go-anywhere versatility. You can wash it after candid shooting in the rain, swimming pool or on the beaches. Has a nice Dolby audio too!

I think the FT1 is a version of the TZ7. It does not have manual controls, unless I missed something..

As long as you keep in mind that the JVC HD7 have received numerous complaints for its optical stabilizer, you can consider that as well. Since its been discontinued for a long time, you may have trouble finding it new.

If money wasnt an option, JVCs HM100 would be perfect for you since it has CCDs, adequate manual features and XLR inputs. Keep that camcorder in mind once you hit the jackpot.

GZ-HD7 does not output progressive

Does the GZ-HD7 output progressive 25P or even 30P ? My impression was that it does not - it has progressive scan sensors but outputs interlaced..
Is that right ?
