I read from Sanyo forum that Sanyo HD700 does NOT have mic input, there is wrong info in manual. Sanyo HD700 makes MPEG4 H.264 and HD1/HD2 records MPEG4 older codec (I am not sure is it H.263), some say H.264 is better even it is more compressed, but you have judge yourself from test videos. Download and look through all test videos you can and then make your choice. Small lens and sensor makes light sensitivity always lower. I have tought excactly same questions, should I buy Sanyo from abroad or not, but it is too expensive camera for that and I don't want to deal with post office or delivery services, I don't want to buy anything until I see it, but that is just me.
