I grabbed one recently, since they were so inexpensive. I am not mega-thrilled with it's image/video quality [color is a bit off/slightly-yellowish (but less over-sharpening than the Zx3), but not horribly so]...but hey, I paid $74.00 for my black one. I was having very high hopes for the HMX-E10 with it's newer 8MP/backlit Omnivision sensor. I will say this, the Electronic Image Stabilizer is worlds better than the Kodak Zx3 Playsport and low-light video comes out better with the backlit sensor. The larger 8MP sensor give a lot more room for the 1080p video to stabilize. The user interface is basically all on the touchscreen with software buttons and (being an iPhone4 user) the touchscreen has a LOT of lag. I often have to press everything twice to get it to activate. Mine has version 1.16 firmware in it:

I've take a pile of test images and movies (720p and 1080p) side by side with my Kodak Zx3 and iPhone4 and spent time comparing them. When I find the time, I will throw them up on a web page soon if there is interest.

Here is another interesting fact I noticed (video bit rates with each device):

HMX-E10 (1080p): 17.842 Mbps
HMX-E10 (720p): 9.488 Mbps
Zx3 Playsport (1080p): 13.150 Mbps
Zx3 Playsport (720p): 8.563 Mbps
iPhone4 (720p): 11.309 Mbps

...and just for comparison, my Canon SX200IS:
SX200IS (720p): 24.491 Mbps
