i'm almost certain the 1/1.8" is a typo

every single xacti camcorder so far used a 1/2.5" sensor... from what i understand the english manuals are error prone, lots of direct copy and paste from hd2 specs in it. 6.37 effective megapixel was for the CG/CA generation... HD700 is 7.38 megapixels.

The 1080i capture is definately sharper, but I can only say that after opening each image in a separate window and comparing sections side by side.

At this point it must be said, that your Sample is darkish. Compare at ISO 50 an you see a difference.

The Sensor ist bigger than 1/2,5". The cam has a new Sensor concept. Its possible to make real 4:3 Pictures and real 16:9 Pictures! Not a 16:9 crop like othe cams.

See in this grafic i made to illustrate:

pink = imagecircle* from lens (*i do not know the correct name )

blue = 4.3MP Sensor (2496x1712)

yellow = 4MP 4/3 Picture (2288x1712)

green = 3.5MP 16:9 Picture (2496x1408)

black = 2.1MP 16:9 Video (brinks for IS) (1920x1080)


I hope its understandable, i have a really terrible english

OK I tested the camera over the weekend, I shot several videos.

Now I so far only watched the videos on a brand new spanking 46" top of the line Sony Bravia. In this TV 1080p blows away 720p at 60fps. The video in 1080 had more color, sharpness, detail and it look more vivid. Everyone I showed it could tell the diference. I will try it tomorrow in my office with my DEll LCD tv and see if i get the same results.

I was very happy with the camera output, really for anyone that is moving from DV to HD you wont mind surrendering a little quality vs the canon HV20 over the great portability this camera offers + no tapes.

I did notice while I was trying to zoom in on a hummingbird that it was difficult for the camera to focus on the hummingbird, it would focus the leaves around but not the bird. I read the manual later and saw that they had the spot focusing so I tried that and it did help. But then if I tried to shoot a flower floating in the water it would focus in and out, so I had to return to the other focus setting. So you kind of have to tinker with the settings depending on what you are shooting.

Any good websites to upload the test video so you guys can see what I am talking about and see the awesome quality at 1080?

Also I will be shooting live models this week in a studio with this camera. I will do some tests tomorrow I will report back.

For shooting under studio lighting live models, do you guys have any good setting suggestions. For example should I use the cosmetic filter? The video shoot is for hair color and hair styles so I dont know if I apply the cosmetic filter I might get bluriness in the hair, dont know?

On the photo it shows a 8m option 3264x2448 does this mean its 8megapixels?
