As I mentioned in another thread, I had forgotten that Sony gave us a DVD in the press kit the other day so I just watched it now. It's a standard definition DVD which I watched on an ED (854x480) 39" plasma screen. They have example footage of a soccer game showing the 6 sec and 3 sec slow modes.

I thought they looked pretty good actually, although a little soft. But I'm guessing if I slowed down regular footage with software, it would look much worse. I don't know anything about the different slow motion modes. But from my quick watch it appeared the 3 second mode was sharper.

At least the camcorder has this feature, unlike the competition.

Agreed. It's a nice bonus feature... something else I wish my Z1 could do :-) Only you can make the judgement as to whether it meets your needs. I would certainly give it a try if I was working in standard definition.

Yes, the CLIP is 1440 x 1080i. But the resolution used to CREATE the stream is significantly lower. Just like there are camcorders with 960 x 540 chips spitting out 1920 x 1080, this is beginning with a lower resolution in slo motion mode as well.
