Thank you for your quick reply Fishy, I'm getting restless for a new gadget. I may be able to contain myself and wait for something better. The one I really wanted was the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 if it was 100 cheaper, but at a price ranging from 350 to 400 and with no optical stabilization it's just ridiculous. Even the HD1010 is still at the 250 range, it's a lot for a camcorder shooting [email protected], again with only digital stabilization...

I think the successor to the HD2000 will be a top mid-range camcorder if they add proper optical stabilization instead of the ineffective digital crap that Sanyo is using at the moment. If they also add [email protected] recording and manage to keep the existing Xacti's excellent low-light capability, then the successor to the HD2000 will be the one to get. but I can't wait until then, I have to get my fix now!

Yes, stab... sorry this is what happens when one stays up till 5:00 AM shopping around for a camcorder: My poor head is knackered. Thank god I don't have to work till next week!

I found that EIS makes footage a little less defined with most cameras, so I'll probably use [email protected] for stationary clips and [email protected] for moving ones, no stab... Will convert the mov files to mkv (my favorite container format), so Cuda can be utilized when playing them back. mkvmerge does this nicely and fast, no re-encoding = no loss of quality; it allows you to split the files too. Can't wait for the lil' beauty to arrive!

Use whatever format you like it still will not make "Rolling SHutter go bye bye"
