Will this software work to edit HD1000 720p or 1080 footage?

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
I'm not understanding what the debate is :?. In every press release, on sanyo's japanese and rest of the sites; the spec sheet says 1/2.5" sensor. I'm inclined to take the japanese site as the official word since there's no translation going on, and its pretty clear in the spec sheet that it says 1/2.5".

the sensor has 4 megapixels total, and 1080 mode uses the center 2 megapixels, leaving the unused border for image stabilization. That part has been discussed in earlier threads.

Maybe I'm not understanding you, but how is your illustration proving how big the physical size of the sensor is?

Latinoise, did you play the video on your Sony LCD directely from HD1000, or from a personal computer? Also looking forward to your report using the Dell LCD cause I'm considering buying one myself. Sony is too expensive!

The point is, that sanyo use only 1/2.5" of the bigger sensor. Otherwise 6,3mm cannot equivalent 38mm (35 mm equiv.). But 4:3 format has a resolution of 2288x1712 pixel and 16:9 2496x1408. That signify that the sensor has a real resolution of 2496x1712. The point that affirmed this is, that both diagonals has the same length. Also for the same "Lens imagecircle" with other words for the same crop faktor (6).

If the sensor would be only 1/2.5" than 16:9 format can have only 2280x1282 Pixel. And not 38mm (35 mm equiv.) cause the diagonal becomes shorter.

Look here, the distance is the same, but 16:9 picture has more angle to the outsides:

The reason to do this is simple. Sanyo needs more pixel to stabilise the picture without abate the quality. Most people think that with electronic IS you get poorer image quality, sanyo attempted to be better in this point. So they can use a 30% range for image stabilization, otherwise 19%.

My illustration (1 Pixel equal to 5 in real) shows you that Sanyo use the "Lens imagecircle" perfectly. The diagonals are the same and you can use 16:9 with wide-angel (38mm). A new technic for digital cameras.

Using Vegas I tried to convert a 1080i clip to 720pand it does not work well at all.

Firstly when you try to render the file @ 30fps using lower field first (as this is what theFullHD clip is being reported as) it gives an error message, something about memory.

Second if you the select progressive it creates a file but the playback isa little jerky.

My question is what settings would provide the best results when converting from 1080i to 720p. Does the 60 fields per second render to 30 frames per second ok or what settings should I look at to achieve a smooth file playback?

Even though few people have the kit to burn HD-DVD or Blu-ray discs right now you can still connect this device direct to a HD TV.

The nero software is rubbish, read any of the nero forums. You are better off using windows media player or there is also VLC player and if you read through the thread there are some more suggestions.

I actually found nero showtime 3 to work well but any other versions are just cr*p.
