They also have it for the same price on amazon.com if you prefer this online retailer.

For $179.46 you get the Sanyo HD100 which records 1080P with near identical specs-http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10629517

Actually the HD700 uses a CCD whereas the HD100 uses CMOS. While the HD100 records up to 1080p at 8Mbps and 720p at 6Mbps, the HD700 records 720p at 9Mbps. But the HD100 is still a good alternative.

The HD700 has better manual features than the HD100, like the ability to remember white balance settings when put into standby. The lens of the HD100 does go a lot wider than the HD700, however.

I have used both, I returned both. I decided that Optical image stability was such an advantage I went with Kodak V1073 / Z1012 and Canon HF100. Neither Kodak or Canon is as convenient as the HD700, but they all take better (IMO) movies than the HD700...

It the lens wasn't so "zoomed-in" I would probably buy it. But alas, there are better cameras out there now.
