Panasonic HC-W850 - 2 cameras in one.

So, I was surfing B&H this afternoon just looking around at small camcorders and ran across this guy.

It has 2 cameras in one! I've never seen anything like this before, but I can think of a lot of uses for it at weddings. The second camera can be rotated to just about any angle it looks like. Crazy. And only $800.00

After watching the demo video, I saw that the video streams can't be separated and it shows up as PIP. Bummer. It would have been cool to have two different video feeds on the same camera. lol

Re: Panasonic HC-W850 - 2 cameras in one.

To me, the most interesting thing about this camera is that you can get a cheaper version (the 750, currently $550) without the PIP feature - why is the 750 of interest? It does 1080p120fps.

That would be the perfect camera to have at the beach. You could be recording plenty of cuties, but to them, it looks like you're filming the ocean. = P
