Sanyo HD1 bug ?

The bug is now related by the french site akihabaranews

A few days ago, I sent an email to the Sanyo European support, and YES they replied !
Here is the aproximate translation:
"We did not notice the bug on the european product... If the bug was real we would fix it of course... Wait for the commercial release to make your own opinion."

I agree this HD1 may be flawed in a similar way JVC's HD1 was a few years ago.

This is the first pocket HD video camera - there'll be more pocket HD video cameras available very soon and they may be better. If history is anything to go by, they will be!

However, the manual controls (which were sorely lacking on JVC's HD1) and the fact that, as Akihabara News points out, "The HD1 is the result of a long line of [Sanyo] pocket camcorders in which the problems have been resolved step by step... " makes me feel better about this than I did about the JVC HD1.

Even though Sanyo's camera probably has inferior picture in principle to the JVC.

With the JVC, there was a real feeling of botched brilliance. I don't get that here. It's just a super low spec HD device..

The reason why, is probably because this is a $800 Sanyo, HD is old, and the price is a fraction of what JVC wanted for theirs. If JVC had done it for $800, I think they could have been a market leader in sales (particular if they improved as improved technology came out (latitude and low light) and provided 25p PAL market compatible model.

I want a HD camera, even though I do not have a HD TV, because I am not stupid, what ever footage I get today people will want to watch in future on HDTVs, So, what is JVC and Sanyo waiting for, PAL markets with little HDTV penetration still want HD (but at 25fps for viewing on normal TVs too).

Thanks for listening to my irrelevance.
