You have to actually go through with trying to do the update. If you already have the latest version the camera will then tell you. As far as I know there's no other way to check the firmware revision other than going through the update steps.

BTW, regarding firmware update according to http://www.sanyo.de/products/digital...d1000.asp?lg=E
I wonder - how can I find out what version of the firmware I have in my HD1000, and how do I know that the update is worth the hassle (i.e. the improvements are significant)?
absolutely!

I accidently drop my HD1000 from bed to floor last night, though feel nothing wrong on shooting video & photo after that, but I feel worry about it. I tried to find out whether XACTI does any drop test on HD1000, but unfortunately there has no info available.

Does anyone know whether HD1000 can tolerate to certain drop?

Every company drop tests their electronics, especially the ones often carried while traveling. If it's working fine don't worry about it.

Thanks for the reply.
Since my HD1000 was purchased in Japan (by my son-in-law on travel, in case you wonder) in April, I think that the chances of it having the older firmware are rather slim.
Is there an easy way to verify which version of the firmware a Xacti is running on?

this looks liked abiased review, but whatever. TG1 doesn't seem to offer anything new over HD1000, I was hoping for OIS, but it looks like it's also EIS. Also paying almost $1000 seems ridiculous when you can get HD1000 for almost half that.

This forum appears to be a write-only item, but again:
Take a picture with the HD1000 and you will find the firmware version in the EXIF info of the JPG file.
The EXIF info can be obtained by most JPG viewers and photo editors.

By the way, the 1080i format plays back almost flawlessly with Cyberlink PowerDVD 7.3 on my ACER L5100 (Athlon 2x64 5000+, ATI radeon 1250x) and Philips 42" Full HD LCD TV.
Also no problem on my ASUS P5P800SE with (P4 430 3GHz, ATI Radeon 9200) and 1280x1024 Philips 17" LCD monitor.
All other players I tried are useless.
Until now, no suitable editor found. Same story as with my first JVC GR-DV1 MiniDV camcorder in 1995.

Have fun, Bert.
