The HC3 may be somewhat "lobotomized", but it's not a bad camera at all. I'm very pleased with it for the price... But I would recommend the A1 to anyone who actually wants to use the camera for professional work. It's no HVX, but as a B camera that can be thought of as more affordable to put in an underwater housing and a lot more compact for situations that need it, it can't be beat.
Thanks for the feedback on the HC3. I would probably get the HC3 if it had a mike input like the HC1. FWIW, I haven't been too impressed with the Sony 'smart shoe' mike that I'm currently using on my HC-90.

Nikon DSLR's finally a small 60P camcorder (Sanyo VPC-FH1)

I got the link from a moderator at At least I can notice a focusing ring around the lens.

3CCD, focusing ring, AVCHD recording and a compact size will make this consumer Panasonic HD camcorder an attractive buy.

It like I mentioned in others posts. A Sony and Panasonic camcorder that records on the AVCHD format will indeed be revolutionary. They have worked together on the format but you will see the same rivalry that it was 2 years ago with the HC1000 and the GS400. Since GS400 killed the HC1000. Sony finally came out with the HC1 that can finally compete with the GS400 and finally took the lead.

I canít wait to see what they are both going to offer. This makes me wonder if Canon and JVC can still compete in the consumer category.
