Anybody bought one of these yet?

I'm really curious, I think I would like to buy one but am waiting on some feedback from others first. Is that the same with everyone else? If we all wait for somebody else, nobody will buy one! :?

I'll spend a little extra for the HD1010, the a little bit is worth the money

Honestly, I'm still tempted to get this. I don't think the HD1010 and the HD800 are closely related. They have different noise reduction- not sure about image stabilization- but so many people are happy with the HD700- and the HD800 is less than $400- which I think is reasonable for a camcorder that can be whipped out on a moment's notice.

Reviews are really hard to find and its only released in Asia now. I have to buy grey market if I want- but this has the most important thing to me- portability.

Any other thoughts?

How about the sony t500?

Only issue is with the ccd smear/streak, but apart from that it looks good?

The sony DSC-T500 looks really, really good. Except for a couple things: The sanyo still has a better picture for video, the sony requires that damn memory stick duo (not really a problem any more now that you can get an micro SDHC adapter off dealextreme.com), but the deal-killer is the time limit for clips at 10 minutes. That's terrible. It's so terrible that sony may be forced to release a firmware update... not that sony is liable to listen to its customers or anything.
I'm disappointed enough, I really don't plan to buy anything sony again: no PS3, no blue ray player, probably no walkman, no Bravia, sigh.

I wonder if this was designed by the same guy who limited the Betamax format:?
