I would buy one of these if the price is at $300. You see, I don't see this camera as a 1080p-worthy one, as quality is horrendous on its full resolution. Downsampling on post to 853x480 (widescreen DVD quality), is very acceptable. It's barely acceptable at 720p. So I guess this makes a good DVD-quality camcorder, which is why I would pay up to $300 for it.

I would take Panasonic AVCHD to be little better than that from my experience.

I prefer this SD7 over Xacti HD1000 for my pocket camera to cover my HVX200 and HPX555.

But too bad panasonic doesn't do 24p for the consumer cam but Canon does.

They had a special durable (they called it "active") version with their standard def. model (I won't use the word "SD" here because it gets confusing that these cams take SD memory, lol). This SD7 chassis looks kinda same, so I'm hoping this is simular to that active version, then it will be interesting for onboard shooting.
