Default New Panasonic DC1, anyone own one- words?

Does anyone have one of these new Panasonic DC1's- any comments?

I'd like to hear from anyone who has owned a similar Sanyo Xacti...any comparison notes?

If it's anything like the Xacti's that can do 1080i 60 fps then it should be very good. I have the VPC-FH1 and have tested the Xacti GH4, excellent camcorders, especially on HDTV. Specs seem similar, seems to take higher resolution pics and higher zoom, video specs look the same.

I have a Sanyo vg-20, it is OK, but I feel 1080i mode is not up to it. I get problems panning.
Ideally it should have double the data rate, like recent jvc cameras, or at least 24mb/s with p60 (p50 in my country's, 50hz lighting really stuffs up the quality of i60 and p60 modes, and a devalue to me, unnecessarily as a p50 i50 modes can easily be added to the cameras.

The p60 chips tend to be behind the scenes and used in more expensive cameras. However, ambarella has released a new low powered fullhd p60 chip, and I am looking at one minature camera, but has not been released yet. Seen video and it looks impressive for what it is.

So hopefully Panasonic can release something like the hd2000 in a package like the one above even with 3d. This has been far too long coming, amabrella released a chip capable of 5mp video Android setup with gpu. I expect a 8mp video announcement this year or next.


Stuff it going to post new thread.
