jared3105, it could very simply be that your PC is not powerful enough to play HD AVC video, you need avery recentpowerful PC to do so. If you read this thread, the best results were obtained using the CoreAVC codec (comes with Quicktime alternative). Or just play the videos from your camera.

1. The point is, that sanyo use only 1/2.5" of the bigger sensor.

2. So they can use a 30% range for image stabilization, otherwise 19%.

3. My illustration (1 Pixel equal to 5 in real) shows you that Sanyo use the "Lens imagecircle" perfectly.
Yasir,

I am interested in your explanation, but I'm not sure I fully understand.

1. Do you think the HD1000 only uses 1/2.5" of a 1/1.8" sensor?

2. Is this the extra 30% that you refer to?

3. Could you explain about "1 pixel equal to 5"?

The name of this kind of Sensor is Multi-Format-Sensor. I see that Panasonic TZ3 have the same concept.

Normal 1/2,5 Sensor is 5,8cm x 4 cm

Sanyo HD1000 Sensor has 6,33 x 4 cm

Sanyo used either 5.8 x 4 cm for 4:3. Or 6.33 x 3.54 cm for 16:9.

1. The Sensor size is nearly 1/2"

2. No, the 30% relate to the IS. The video is in 16:9 format. It is not enough pixels left and right left to the image properly to stabilize. It is a broader sensor better, it offers the right and left more pixels.

3. Five pixel on the sensor corresponds to one pixel in my illustration

if its anything like the idea behind the panasonic tz3... then i'm guessing 1/2.35" for the sensor size.

though i wonder why sanyo wouldn't just say that instead of using 1/2.5" in all their specs and press release?

Poor marketing. Sanyo is, in my opinion, famous for, otherwise they would sell a lot more. Nobody knows, for example, exactly how many pixels are working together with the video (pixelmapping???). Especially with the other models. Was the HD1 also combined pixels as HD2 or not? Sanyo is never accurate. Good example, CG6 has wide angle less than HD1000 with videos. Where else can you see this on the specs and press release? Nowhere...

Or they try to hide, perhaps Panasonic has the patent rights))

That, I believe, but rather not. Some are even Panasonic cameras from Sanyo. Both often develop together.

(I use google translate, is it better now?)

Olympus now also has the 1/2.35 sensor... and they specify it as such... so i guess we'll never know why sanyo chose not to disclose the actual size :?

using the tz3's focal length equivilance (4.6mm = 28mm)... and 1/2.35" sensor on the HD1000 does compute to 38mm using that multiplier.
