Yeah, quite a lot.

Thanks.

Hey wait a minute...i downloaded this 172 gb file

what this is ??? look at the faces of people in this footage . It is grainy ALL OVER THE PLACE !!!!

Are u sure this is High Definition shot with the TX1 ? Because i don't call this HD quality at all

even with my 2 years old SD camcorder Sony M1 , indoor shots are better quality !!!!

i was VERY interested in buying the TX1 but after seeing this video, i think i'll pass

this is a SHAME, and if CANON wants to sell this device, they should avoid the diffusion of such videos online !!!

THIS IS A STOPPER.

arrgh !!

WOW was watching this video again, this is worse than VHS !! and i dont exagerate


on that site all the outdoor scenes are nice : http://www.google.com/translate?u=ht...&hl=hu&ie=UTF8

its funny to see that all outdoor videos shot in perfect condition with a tripod on that japanese site are ideal and all perfect...then when u watch a video shot in real condition, with people moving as in real life (so the 172 gb video in previous post) u see how different the result is !!

instructive

Yeah, these low light shots are really a shocker, but unfortunately the Xacti HD2 doesn't perform much better in low light.

Unfortunately, the definition of HD has *nothing* to do with image quality. It is only an image size; referring to resolutions above 480i. Quality has nothing to do with HD (perhaps it should; but by definition it does not).

yeah but judging by the video , the scene takes place in a well-lit ballroom, which is not exactly what i call "low light" conditions

again my 2 years old Standard Definition camcorder (Sony M1) takes better videos than this in same conditions

that's why i was shocked !!

Not actually TX1 footage, but footage of the TX1. Might give you a better impression of the size and handling of the TX1.

So, Canon HV10 is light years ahead of Canon TX1 in regard of video quality?

Though, it might be in reverse for image quality...
