Also, you left out a huge difference in the EIS, the HD1000's EIS is way better, the HD700 EIS crops and scales up the image resulting in resolution loss.
Does that mean that the wide angle of the HD1000 is not cropped from 38mm to 49mm eqivalent for video?

the video is not as wide as photo. But the way HD1000 utilizes the sensor is different from HD700.

HD1000 only uses the center 2 megapixels for video, whether EIS is on or off... so there is no change in quality whether you enable or disable the stabilization. When taking photos, it'll use the entire sensor area, so you get a wider angle.

HD700 is like classic Xactis in which it uses full area in video mode, so if you turn EIS on, it crops the image slightly and stretches it back to equivilent size... so you get reduced resolution.

HD1000'sLCD is not "what you see is what you get". Only when the record button is pressed does it begin to show the real appearance of the video being shot. Is it a design flaw, or a bug to be fixed?

Today I watched Panasonic 3ccd sd3's video of outdoor secene. I don't think it's as sharp as hd1000, but the optical image stabilizer is really much better.

So when taking photos with the HD1000, is there a reduced angle of view with EIS on?

yes, photo mode's view is wider than in video modes.

Enter menu mode and you'll see the battery meter at the bottom right. When battery is lower, thenthe meter will start to appear while shooting. According to the specs, continuous recording = 120 min., continuous playback = 275 min.
