sandan: you can see the artifacting in that video at the 30 second mark when i quickly move away. Stabilizer was off for both pics and vid in those samples.
Video indoors(at night) has lots of noise, havent tried it outside yet but its probably the same.

Here are a couple more samples from in-car(the camera holder was very wobbly, i'll try another vid tomorrow) and another one of the backyard during mid-day with stabilzer on this time.

Compared to the hd700 clips that were posted here the quality seems to be a step down rather than up.

1 when you filmeddid you quickly hit record or allow the cam first to get adjusted.

well that pic is poor I am sure you need to go through the settings somewhat to capture a good clip.

mine above is the 700 and well I am happy to say PASS

I dont like the hd800 video at all, I dont know if I've downloaded the one with or without stab onbut it looks even worse than the other clip.

I just keep thinking jelly on a plate, jelly on a plate, wibbly wobbly, wibbly wobbly, jelly on a plate!

Thanks for doing these tests for the rest of us. I had a 700 briefly and it was terrible. I had expected the 800 to be much better but it apparently isn't. I guess I'll pass on this one. I keep trying to love Sanyo because they handle so easily,......but it just seems they keep putting out marginal products.

I hear ya.I

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I like mine

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"and not complaining every single feature and function.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"the shots are great but need to have more manual controls to compare with the Auto picked one.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"we can make this cam look like a star, or fail in a heartbeat.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Ifyou are going to continue andkeep I am sure you'll have your hands full. again thank you forall the vids best to get them on vimeo.com rather the direct site as people search andsee then just posted fo rhere.

I'm really disappointed that the HD800 is no improvement over the 700. I suppose the change of codec to H.264 would be called an improvement but if that is at the expense of quality video, no thanks. I really, really wanted to like this camera. My CG65 is a nice Sanyo and I enjoy using it. My Canon TX1 does the HD and I love that also. I was hoping Sanyo had finally put it all together.

Personally, I'll be taking a look at the Sony T500. I'm also hoping for a new Canon hybrid since they have discontinued the TX1.
