Bert,
You can pre-process the 1080i video with "VirtualDub" or "Video Enhancer" and produce an HDV intermediate file (deinterlaced 30p or interlaced 1440x1080i) which can be handled by any editor.

I usually use Gunnar Thalin's magnificent DeShaker plug-in for VirtualDub, which is far more effective than the internal HD1000 image stabilizer, and complementary to it. Of course it is slow, about 1/10 real-time...

You can also use the more compact H264 intermediate codecs, of course..

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.
Under properties I see "EXIF version :0221" is this the newest firmware version?

I have downloaded
FxIF 0.2.3 for Firefox
but that still won't show all the details you show. I don't get that line in "properties"
Camera Software: ver1.1.0

I have make some simple comparison of the resolution between 720p and 1080i . I found that 1080i resolution is more sharper than 720p. But most of the time I'm capturing in 720p (30fps) because I want to share the video with more people.

Yeah, only problem is the hosting you used. You can only download one file every 21 minutes. Plus you have to deal with that ridiculous image where it has the cats that are hard to see. Sorry, can't deal with that.

I have written a few more posts about the HD1000 on paraglidingforum.com, which I'll refrain from cross posting here. However, I would like you to at least read this latest one(if not the previous ones) concerning wide angle add-on lenses: http://www.paraglidingforum.com/view...=110650#110650
I would appreciate comments and samples from anyone owning a Sanyo add-on lens.

P.S.: I am still enthoused and impressed by the whole Xacti system including the Xacti libary - the latter exceeded even my expectations [img]file:///c:/windows/TEMP/moz-screenshot.jpg[/img]

I can now offer two still to compare - one was shot with the standard lens, the other with a Sony 0,6X wide converter added.
To me, the difference was staggering food for thought, and it increased my desire för corresponding sample images where Sanyo's dedicated 0,7X converter was used. Mine was an accessory to a SD camcorder, so I sure hope that Sanyo's fits the requirements for hi-def significantly more. In that case, I would be ready to part with about 100 EUR, but very reluctant to pay more, in view of the fact, that the Xacti itself cost me 500 EUR...

For a video clip the effects of the resulting image deterioration is not quite as bad as the sample images would lead one to believe. In fact, it may even be "natural", since we with our natural eyes only see a very small part of our field of vision sharply. BTW, there is no vignetting in 720p video clips, but in the still image, which has a higher resolution.

However, when the stakes are higher (i.e. when you also want to take stills that are sharp all over and not just in the center of the image) the demands on the wide angle converter are also much higher - I strongly suggest you make sure that whatever converter you consider actually meets those requirements before you part with your money, and I request that you speedily report here, if and when you find that they are.

Thanks OpaPiloot!

How about coming to Scandinavia to piloot some with me? ;-)

Pete, the two links you posted are exactly the same. Did you mean to post two different links?
