HD1000:

-1080i, 720p @ 60fps @ 12mb/s
-bulkier, around 300 grams with battery

Are you sure about the HD1000 doing 60FPS? I think that is 60 fields per second.

I don't see the two cameras competing against each other that much. One is a 10x zoom and the other a 5x. The GC7 looks to be using a "standard" 7MP sensor whereas the HD1000 is using a 4MP. The 4MP is more like what is used in top of the line camcorders so it should cost more and perform slightly better although I didn't see that in the band video. The HD1000 also has a much larger flash and lower F lens and the mike plug.

You will have to pay to get the extras.

Sanyo is looking to have some very smart products. I just hope for a rapid drive shooting mode.:-)

at 1080i mode its 60field per second @ 12mb/s

720p has two modes, a 60 frames per seoncd mode that is 12mb/s and a 30 frames per second mode that is 9mb/s

here's the link to the japanese hd1000 spec page... http://sanyo-dsc.com/products/lineup...pec/index.html

the hd1000 is certainly the better product, and having seem the beta unit footage of both 1080i and 720p modes, i'm very very impressed considering their previous HD offering's lucluster performance.

if the HD700 can match the footage quality of the hd1000, i think i'll choose the smaller size over the more robust features of the hd1000

HOWEVER, two things hold me back from the photos I see. First, it looks like the glass on the HD1000 is much, much better, and with a f1.8 on the HD1000, that's going to be mighty hard to beat in low light. Next is I'm not seeing an external microphone jack in the photos. I could be just missing it, but that would oops and pretty much cause me to head straight back to the HD1000.

We'll see...
Thats what I was thinking. That is one large nice looking lens on the 1000, which would help warrant its $800 price tag. We'll see how well if at all it outperforms the other xacti's in darker shooting conditions. Too bad it can only take 4mp stills

it seem to replace CG65 .
I think that CG65 is the lastest C series DC , and the HD series will be the lead of Xacti.

Akihabaranews.com has a quick hands on impression plus lots of product photos of the HD700... its like a thinner E1/CA65 size wise. They seem to be impressed with the video quality.

The more I see of this the more I want one but only recently purchased the cg65 I think I'll wait a year or so and see what price they want for one, £250 would be a good purchase price for me.

I think the title of the thread might need some fixing.

The camera is 1280 wide by 720 high, it says 720 wide.

:O!This one really is an interesting / promisinghybrid. I agree, it looksmore pocketable, like the Cxxx line. They say that on a 42" or smaller HDTV you can't really tell the difference between 720 and 1080. Wow, development never slows, I'm :shock:.
