Looks like an interesting camera and a nice price too. Why do they persist in misleading consumers with interpolated image sizes? For me the true 3.3MP images are still pretty decent for a camcorder but I guess they feel they have to constantly lie to sell these things. I don't care if they have the true size hidden in the specs, they know customers only see the headline and I guess they then pull the 'it's listed in the specs to cover themselves legally' stunt.
