I don't know why this keeps getting repeated when we know the sensor is only 960x1080 and the recording format is 1440x1080, while 1080p is 1920x1080. I wish we could all stop using the word "true" in regards to video formats, but I suppose that's not going to happen.

The sensor is 960 x 1080 in the traditional sense, true. But it's far from a traditional sensor system, and Sony clearly demonstrates why they sample at 1920 x 1080. There aren't any pixels being rescaled, sampled, or otherwise. So in terms of resolution, this is (put into the context it the statement was made) the first 1080p camcorder manufactured for sub 10k in price.

I agree about the "true" comment, as anything that meets the ATSC spec is "true" HD. "True" and "full" are different descriptors, and I'd accept "full" as a descriptor regarding 1080 vs 720 regardless of I vs P.

Either way, this thread is getting further and further off-topic, and therefore, I'm closing it.
