I read about those in a magazine, the mag had a picture with twelve of them in a dozen egg carton, they fit just like eggs, lol!!!

There was one instance where one of those mini-HDcams were used. Last year's Grammys.

ďThe Clarksí video was produced by Visceral Films. Armed with six pre-production samples of the new SANYO Xacti HD1000 camcorder and 20 Kingston Technology brand 4GB class six SDHC cards, Viseral Films shot the video in its entirety using the SANYO Xacti HD1000.Ē

Itís too bad that the High Definition version isnít available to download. Maybe in the future.

Thanks Paulo

Looks promising. Can't play it at the moment, but from the picture on the front. One thing I notice is the break light on the car looks pinkish, like HC1 did. Otherwise it might look better (but was that frame from the video or an still).

An question, playing the H264 footage. My present computer won't hack it, what would you suggest to download the h264 and convert (free software) to lossless to view?

Wayne Morellini August 31st, 2007 12:18 PM

Can't get it to download, have you got an direct link to the file?

Paulo Teixeira August 31st, 2007 12:46 PM

I just streamed the file on my computer and never downloaded it. The image is from the video itself but the color on the jpg is a little bit off. It looks redder on the video.

One thing I noticed is that the jpeg is 640X360 and just by doubling that, its 1280X720. So basically the original video isnít 1920x1080i but rather 1280x720p.

Paulo Teixeira August 31st, 2007 01:06 PM

OK, here is the news release.

Frame rates? Progressive or interlaced? 24p?

720 60p and 1080 60i are both confirmed. I earnestly donít think it will have 24p on either 720 or 1080 but the US specs may be different.

I’m very glad that Sanyo is putting an aggressive price point in this camcorder because it forces the AVCHD camcorders to be priced lower.

Since it does 60p, it will be interesting for my onboard shooting and use cinematools for the overcranked effect.
My concern is with HD1, the video was not crisp unless the video was shot very close up.

I went to Yodobashi today but did not see anything happening at the Sanyo Xacti Section.

And just started to play back the Clark's video clip... clip looks great for the cam in that price. but the fast panning from the singer's feet up to his face shows that it won't be good for my onboard purposes. I wonder how the video would look when I record 60p but shutter speed being 1/30, would that help compression quality?

Edit: the onboard shot was clever on the Clark's video that the shot is covered mostly with the girl and her car, the moving area is small. If the whole onboard shot looks like that, I would buy it.

Scott Wohlstein September 3rd, 2007 12:14 AM

Actually...
 
Paulo-

The video was shot in 1920 x 1080i. What you see posted is the Compressor conversion to something that is easily digestable (in this specific case, "H.264 for iPod").

It was an exciting shoot- the images generated by the cameras are amazing. Along with over 9 hours of footage for the main video, we have about the same amount for a behind-the-scenes piece we are completing as we speak.

Scott, thank you for info!
Do you have raw h264 1280x720p60 samples without recompression ?

Paulo Teixeira September 3rd, 2007 01:20 PM

Scott Wohlstein,

I came to that conclusion because I sometimes see people convert their clips that way.

Like Serge, I would also want to see the RAW file and hopefully youíre not under some contract with a TV station, because if that was the case than Iíd understand why you wouldnít post it. I think if you do show it, then several seconds is fine just incase itíll take to long to upload the whole thing.

Serge Victorovich.
I think you meant RAW 1920x1080 60i.

Out of all the camcorders that were released recently, I would have expected 720 60p as one of the options in the JVC HD7 but that mode never made it in. For this camcorder having it is very significant because the next step up is the Panasonic HVX200.

Now that Sanyo have the perfect strictly consumer camcorder, I think they should also make a Prosumer model with a focusing ring and a higher bit rate.

Here is a link to a 263.9MB video sample.

Maybe someone can do him a favor and upload to a personal server or a hosting site. I would do it myself but my connection is slow at the moment. I hope I get a chance to at least download it tonight because I would love to see how this thing performs.
