Sony do have a lot of marketing hype about their new CMOS sensor technology, so maybe it really does work Certainly the HD1000 was lagging in that area. Hopefully the next generation sensors will be even better - there are some pretty good ideas I am reading about these days. See for example:

If only the HD700 had the same sensor as my Kodak V1073. If only... I could put up with the crummy HD700 lens...

My suspicion is that Sony is pretty far along with new technologies too. See for example this press release:

Thanks for your review, I found it extremely thorough and useful

Unfortunately my Macbook Air is too slow without dropping most of the frames. When I convert the files using Toast, the interlacing looks very annoying and I haven't found a setting to remove it without making the videos look very soft.

I find it highly annoying that there is no progressive mode on the TG1, especially since I mainly view the videos on my computer and share videos with my family over the web. I'm only home on the weekends so my secondary viewing is on the PS3 on my HDTV. The MTS files from the TG1 play on the PS3, but there is a couple second delay before each clip plays.

actually the problems you mentioned here can be easily solved by moyea video converter.

it can convert among almost video and audio formats with high fast conversion speed and excellent output quality, and it has the special function, deinterlacing effect, to help you reduce the interlacing, so if you still are annoyed with those problems, you can try this one...

good luck!
