One thing that I discovered is that the actural video playback from a PC is much better than when I was looking at the HD2000 screen at the same time I was recording.

Just so you know, I brough mine from Amazon.com when one of the vender marked down the price, paid $399 +SH. I am very satisfy with it, as my wift put it "the best video we have ever shot" (FULL-HR), but I think I like the fact that I can snap photo while shooting video, and that is something no one else can match - consider the price and quality that all have to offer. Wecan giveour CANON S5 and SONY HANDY CAM to our sons (8 and 10) to play from now.

I brought it from ANTONLINE at amazon.com when they marked the price down. I also brought a 0.5x wide screen and a 2x telescope lenses when 1dayasale.com have them up for sale for $20. My HD2000 has no problem using either of them. Auto focus is as there is no lens, no blurry problem either. I just shot with 0.5x wide screen lens for my kid's stage performance and it was perfect. So far, I have no complaint.

I bought this camera and it arrived 2 days ago by DHL. It's wonderful. 1080p and 60p fps are impressive, but I need to upgrade my PC to edit that kind of video. Built materials don't seem (IMHO)to be solid though and I was a little bit disappointed for slow motion feature: it lasts just 10 seconds... I have an issue with the Remote Control (BRC-C3): 5 buttons (menu and directionals) don't work!:sad:

I bought from Simply Electronics (an Amazon company). It'spriced at 413.95 pounds that is about 450,00 euro with shipping included.

I didn't try the remote yet, I will try that later today. You didn't forget to remove the plastic tab that prevents the battery from discharging right?

I agree the HDxxxx ranges has some parts that feel a bit plasticy, but it's light and solid camera.

Yep, I removed it. InfactSET button and RIGHT button work.When Iset the Camcorder to [email protected] fps I can see the remote control infrared diode pulsing and when I push MENU button it doesn't pulse... I'm gonna RMA'ing the remote control....

By the way I'm doing more tests:

I tested the H.264 files generated with HD2000 on my PS3 and the console plays the files quite good EXCEPT for the clips @ 60 frames per second. The 60fps clip goes out of sync! Maybe the bitrate is too high (28 mbps peak)? I will test 60fps on my PS3 by burning an AVCHD disc.

I tested it to with some 60pclips I downloaded. They do play but there is some frequent jerkiness to the video. It's not the bitrate, which is 24mbps by the way, because some high definition blu-rays use an even higher bitrate and they play fine. It's something to do with the 60FPS video. To me thatwouldbe kind of a deal breaker as I like to store and play my vids on my PS3 hard drive. But it seems they improved the camera in so many other areas that I will probably upgrade anyway.

On a side note, why the heck did Sanyo remove the 720/60P mode?? Are they on crack? It's just software code, why on earth remove it??? Makes no sense at all.

I agree. 720/60p could be usefull. Maybe they just 'swapped' 720/60pfunction with 1080/60p and we will find it again on next firmware update.

So guys, how is the autofocus/image stabilization on the hd2000 ?

Will get out of focus videos when shooting videos while I move a lot the camcorders right to left or up and down ?

Thank you
