Question, does this camera only run off of the battery, or can it run off of an external power source?

It has to be run off the battery. However, the NP120 batteries are fairly cheap ($10 for 2). Here is a link to the still performance:

That's a bummer. I was hoping it would get power from USB. I want to record some lectures, and I don't know if the battery will hold out.

As a side note, what software did you use to make that slide show?

I can't seem to enter service mode, is there a trick I'm missing. The documentation says to hold zoom in and push the disp button. I do that and the display goes blank.

Nick,

Did you have your camera set to Settings mode first?

People have had rigs and commercial mounts (I think) that push against the lens housing, rather than threading, so it might be worth investigating. But I don't remember which they were.

Anyone try 16GB SDHC cards on this yet? What happens? Also, I played the train clips on my machine and noticed a choppiness in the action -- possibly my slow cpu? (1.8ghz core 2 duo) or something inherent in the video? I see they are 29.97fps in the file info, though.

Also I read in the online manual that the max file size recorded is 3.95gb. Does the camcorder just stop recording when it hits that point? Or does it continue into a new file automatically? I will be recording musical performances that go on for long periods of time and need no interruption.

Also, anyway to turn autofocus off?

[i'll have to play em on another machine]

Have you tried to playing it using the ArcSoft player? I haven't tried a 16GB card yet but an 8GB card seems to work just fine. I'll test recording past 3.95GB and I'll let you know.

With regards to autofocus, I sent off a request to DXG on this. Haven't heard back from them yet.
