laked 3 or anyone with the hd1000, please post some sample videos under low light & regular conditions.(1080i) of course it would have to be like 10-30 seconds because of file size.
Accodring to the manual, for 720p you need 7 lux for 1080i you need 15 lux, so the results will vary. I don't expect much evenfrom 7 lux though, because my security cam which has 720p resolution and rated 2 lux is horrible in street lighting. (and it's the best consumer camera by Axis with excellent optics)

Lake,

Sanyo does not have the UV filter yet, did you get yours from somewhere else?

Thanks




Never mind, found it:?

Just got the camera not 30 minutes ago. Here is some footage. I zipped it up but it's straight from the camera. I'm putting it up because I've found so few pure files online. This forum has been a great help in deciding to purchase this camera. I got it just in time for my big trip. I'm leaving tonight. I hope the footage on my site is helpful.

optionaldelusion.com/sanyohd1000

I kept all the processing turned off so the footage is a little shakey but I wanted to see the cleanest image possible. Unfortunately I did not film in 1080i because I've had a lot of trouble with these files on my Mac. I shot at 720/30 and it looks beautiful. Not as much noise as I had feared (after horror stories from the HD2). It does not compare to my HVX200 but it is really amazing the image you can get from such a small device. It will fit in a coat pocket. There is some hunting with the focus and when the image stabilization is turned on and zoomed all the way in, I noticed some picture wobble. All in all, I'm really excited. I'm off to capture some amazing footage of Thailand.

Just got camera and I love the form factor, I don't think it's too big at all and ergonomics are just excellent. I also have Panasonic SD-S10 and it's about the same size except it's no wherenear what HD1000 has to offer hence it's $500 cheaper

Btw, it is black version from BeachAudio.com with US warranty and camera itselfmade in Indonesia. Price tag was $720 and it's now sold out.



Can you tell where can I buy additional battery and UV filter together? Also can anyone recommend a good case for it. Is there an OEM one?

Thanks choavana for sharing the two candid HD1000 samples,very much appreciated!They lookvery good, I'm impressed.Looks fine indoors, hardly noticeable noise,when you go outside it looks cristal clear. It's funny because such a nice high res video deserves a tripod to avoid shakiness, but carrying a tripodin a sensedefeats the purpose of the camera's small portable size. Anchor your arm when shooting, should be good enough.

Have a nice tripto Thailand, you shouldcapture some amazing video with that.... Sawatdee!

http://www.adorama.com/FLK405.html 40.5 filter size. A polarizing filter seems like a good idea for this camera.

Could the folks that have an 8 gig mem card working in their HD1000s please post the make and model of the specific memory card you are using, and for that matter, maybe a link to where you got the card. THANKS!
