thnks ray301
When you say low light performance. How low is low light? At night indoor or outdoor?
Trying to see if i will encounter that low light situation often in my shootings.

I'ver never found wind cut filters to be that great, its just compromising in a different way.

I think any indoor spaces at night with average home lighting will give hd1000 a bit of struggle, because auto iso tend to just use too high of an iso setting. Though if you manually switch auto iso off and use something like iso 400, its actuall not too bad. Though from the samples of sony i've seen it retains detail much better than the Sanyo. I think the problem is the method which sanyo deals with noise; sony is much more light handed with noise reduction so even though there's lots of noise visible, it doesn't destroy fine detail. Sanyo is more heavy handed with noise reduction so it ends up smudging when the lights are dim.

Personally, even if the sony is the same price as the HD1000, i'd still pick the sanyo because for the size i can certainly live with the compromises

There is the Speed Class 4 and Speed Class 6 for the SDHC memory card in the market.
Anyone know if the higher class (CL6) make any difference when it comes to video recording on the HD1000?
Or buying the CL4 cheaper SDHC will do, no need for CL6.

I think even class 2 may work

the 1080i and 720p 60fps mode both eat up 12 Mbps which translates to about 1.5 MB/s

the classes of the sdhc measures the minimum write speed in MB/s

I'm using a class 4 card and haven't really felt any slow down at write, so while class 6 may offer some sort of speed enhancements... you'll have to decide whether its worth the slight price premium

So ffdshow can play these now? I don't think anyone could play the train demo with ffdshow, VLC or Quicktime. Is there a new version of ffdshow or have they changed the output format of production cameras or is it just that the newer samples are just in 720p?

Actually, I found that using the standard ffdshow h264 codec, the shadow areas looked great with visible detail. However, using the coreAVC codec, the shadow areas were all black. I was surprised at how differently the two codecs rendered the image color and gamma wise.

ffdshow/VLC still cannot play 1080i footage, howeverthey can play the two 720p samples that were posted in this thread (those are the ones he was talking about). The CoveAVC codec can play the 1080i footage quite well.
