Hopefully it's another low price HD model and one that fixes the flaws in the HD700. Well one can only hope...

The VPC-CG9.


They look like VPC-CG6s that have been puffed up a bit.
Some info about them here:

CMOS instead of CCD.

Will their video be wavy?

I would not be surprised to see *some* rolling shutter artifacting.

The prices should be pretty low, however.

I can see this cam as a favourite with the sporty crowd with 60fps, well as long as it is cheaper than cg65 as things have moved onto hd now. Hopefully there will be no noticeable shutter roll as the hd1000 doesn't seem to suffer from it, although the hd1000 is there top model and costs more.

CMOS sensors have improved over the years, keep in mind that some high-end cameras, like some of the Sonys now use CMOS sensors. Today there isn't a CCDover CMOS advantage for sensors,assuming decent buildquality.

The main cause of the wavyness in cheap cams is the lack of a framebuffer, not the sensors. I assume the CG9 will have a proper framebuffer.

I have a Sony HDR-UX1 high definition AVCHD camcorder with CMOS.

It's far from perfect where the rolling shutter issue is concerned.

But not nearly as bad as the Aiptek models.
