For anyone looking for clips shot with this camcorder, I've put together a page:
http://stevenunez.com/xactihd1000/xacti.html

I'm really enjoying the portability and ease of use. All hand-held, shot at the Bronx Zoo in New York City, Dec. 2007
I think most would be surprised at the video quality at 720P60!
Have a peek~ http://stevenunez.com/xactihd1000/xacti.html

Note: This is an Mpeg-4 camcorder that uses the AVC X.264 codec which means it CAN be edited natively in many desktop editing programs (PC & Mac, unlike AVCHD!)

Does anyone know of Mac software that can batch rename the Sanyo mp4 files by Date and Time of capture? If no Mac software, then XP software will do.

I store all my videos by YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS_description.

Thanks.

Use Automator to create an action. Then run it every time you want a folder's items renamed as such.
Mac OS X

You can also do it in Bridge if you have Photoshop CS2 or CS3, but automator would give you more options because you can use it to go through multiple actions and/or programs.

thanks for sharin Steve... vids look great. Got a chuckle outa that lense.

Funny thing. I tried playing files in VLC... total crap. WMP 11 wouldn't play(no codec), so I downloaded Quicktime 7...... again, total crap(worse than VLC). But.... on a chance I tried WMP11 again... perfect, flawless playback. Go figure.. VLC is usualy far better than WMP (on windows XP) or any other player for that matterbut, I have Vista on my laptop. And since I obviously got the codec from quicktime, it seems like quicktime would be the better player...... I just got a headache.

At any rate it seems that you can d/l quicktime 7 and then 720p/60AVC X.264 files will play well on WMP11 :O

Steve,

Great clips, however, just noticed that the macroblocking on the bird in water is prety bad, is this to be expcted on most HD Cams, does an ND filter help, I have the HD2 and it didn't seem as pronounced but it is there?



Apart from that blows the HD2 out of the water, no pun intended!

Looks like I need the HD1000 after all!!

Yeah the macroblocking is an inherent trait of the compression- not the camera itself. Mpeg 4 as well as HDV, AVCHD etc all suffer with fast changing pixels, DVCPro HD is the best consumer codec for eliminating that effect.

I agree the HD1000 is great!
