One more important question - Do the HD1000 cams sold in JAPAN have multilingual menu?
There's a slight chance they're purely in Japanese :P

I got my one in Japan. They sell the Japanese domestic NTSC version as well as the overseas PAL version.

The Japanese domestic NTSC version only has Japanese menus.

The overseas PAL version (which also has NTSC mode) has european languages as well as Japanese.

Oh... so DMX-HD1000 is the Japanese version, while VPC-HD1000 is the international one?

I know nuts about video editing. So far, I only view my recorded clips using Xacti Library through External HDD/Docking station and output to my TV.

Thinking of picking up video editing as a new hobby and planning to upgrade my year old Desktop.

Which is a better spec for editing/handling/rendering videos from HD1000, assuming both using the same Video card and memory size?

1) Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q6700 (2.66GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 8MB L2 Cache)

2) Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q9300 (2.5GHz, 1333MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache)

Video card is : nVidia[suP]®[/suP] GeForce[suP]®[/suP] 8600 Graphics Card with TV-out and DVI (512MB of dedicated VRAM)

Read a post in this thread that GeForce 8600 cannot support HD1000 Video format. Is it true?

Thanks.

They produce generally the same results, unless you would overclock your system.

That should not be true. Check here:

Thanks for the reply, GMaximus.

Next is program. I know Sony Vegas 8 works best but price is a bit steep. A forum in Japan ( I can read a little Jap), they are using TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress.I never heard of this before. Anybody tried it?

4. Which additional lens is of more use with this cam - "wide conversion" VCP-L07W (0.7x), or "Semi fish-eye" VCP-L04F (0.4x)? I'm sure something is definitely needed here, but not sure what exactly is. First, the forward-looking dash-cam should have a good sides-view. Second, there's a need to make landscape records in wooded and mountainous areas. I have an uncertain feeling that 0.7 could be not enough...
What's the HD1000's default wide angle?
You can ask me by email to send you as attachments a short 720p-clip of the view through my vehicle's wind screen, taken with the semi-fish-eye converter.
However, using he 0,4Xlens and the HD1000 and then only recording in VGA-resolution (640x480x30 mode, as you wrote) seems very sub-optimal to me. An 8GB card does not cost much nowadays... It is not inconceivable for me to make two sample clips while driving, one in 720p and one in 640x480x30 mode.
I also own an old 0,6X converter, but I recommend the 0,4X.

Thank you Big Pete, but my situation has changed, guess i'm gonna be satisfied with Samsung NV24HD as an "always-in-pocket" + dash-cam, and keep dreaming of a better camcorder.
