This one unfortunately has been down-sized for web upload. You can see the different in brightness but you can't see the details in original size.

Good find blindsight. I had seen the digiblo one, but it wasn't much to go on.

A directlink to the HD versions of those tests(HD2 vs HD1low light).Butthe HD2 has a different field of view from the HD1,it's video bobs up an down, and thehigh sensitivity oneappearsout of focus.HD2 autoalone is brighterthan HD1. NowI wantto see comparisons with light to see how it does without the low light noise.

Yikes!!! The HD2 is darker and noisier than the C6.
I don't think I'll be upgrading from my c6 any time soon.

And has anyone noticed that recent Sanyo press releases
have been calling their new wider cameras "slim"???
Maybe the new design is comfortable in the hand, but
surely not in the pocket.

The HD2 is clearly better than the HD1 but the C6 appears makes a better picture in low light. I await a lot more video samples. After accounting for the limitations of 3 Mbps MPEG4, the C6 is probably the best low light camcorder I've owned. Sure it's grainy and swimming in noise, but it beats the grainy MOS chips of the late 1980s and my Hi-8 CCD was terrible even in a reasonably well lit room. The C6 makes a fantastic DVD in the same light levels. Only my 3 CCD Sony can manage low noise in low light but the picture is as dark as the HD1. And I could buy eight C6s (or three HD2s) for what that Sony cost me. :lol:

"The HD2 is clearly better than the HD1 but the C6 appears makes a better picture in low light.
I won't be surprised because they both have 1/2.5" CCDs, but the C6 has about 6 MP and the HD2 has about 7 MP. That means more photocells packed onto the same area in the HD2, they must be smaller, and smaller means less light falling on each of them, so less sensitive.

P.S. Forgot to mention: the HD2 makes HD resolution video, higher than the standard DVD resolution of the C6.
