Casio finally have a new model that now records in HD 1280x720p video although only in 24fps. It is called the EX-Z300.

and the video looks very nice too:

I would've seriously considered this camera but it seems that it still restricts recording time to 10 minutes. I am of the understanding that the EU considers anything that records 30 minutes or longer a camcorder (which is why Kodak I guess sensibly allow up to 29 minutes). Quite why Casio are sticking with 10 minutes, even for the EU, is beyond me. Oh well.

Does anyone know what the tax percentage is on camcorders in the EU?
