He, he, the "Pink" zx1 has gone on clearance at target for about $76AU (now around $60US), but I don't want to buy a "pink" camera with basically the same sensor as my hispeed, no macro, no mic input (not that the HSHD's is that useful) but about double the datarate, instead of at least a playsport. Who's diabolical idea was it to release a "Pink" version anyway. Sigh, we wait..

Overall Kodak made a better picture with more realistic color even with all its short coming. Sanyo has better sensor but the total end result is not as good as kodak. this is one man's "non-professional" opinion

In which way do you mean Max? If you mean that it had more color than real life, I know what you mean, I prefer close to natural situation myself (I think the FH1 might have a vivid option as well).

For me, I like more latitude and low light ability to get better images in more situations. Kodak had a lower light sensor technology a few years ago, that replaced one of the green bayer pixels with a white one, I wonder if they use it in the zi8/playsport cameras?

that and the ease of use, practicability, without getting into the nitty gritty, all my friends and relatives just love the results zi8 bring, much more so than any other vid cam they have (some over $800)...hehehe, maybe a good part of that is due to the camera man's ability?

No thinking is involved. This is as easiest or as simple as it gets.

For those that do not know these members, they' the ones you need to watch for.

They mean extremely well, but the companies are fully to blame.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

I'm sure Sanyo can make a dumbed down easy mode (or just set aperture and focus). I don't take it as real faults of the quality the camera can achieve. Of the upper market consumer cameras, most just stomp over the zi8. I checked out the reviews on the latest cameras night before last, and even the HD2000 is showing it's age. Anyway, over here the price is a lot greater, and the comparative price difference less, for me quality achievable is important. I am saving up for a quality main camera, so I don't want to waste too much money replacing overpriced cameras. The quicker they bring out a quality 4/3rd SHD camera the better.
