Just got a TH1 recently and the camera is fairly good for what I use it for (mainly mounted in the car for videos as well as some handheld stuff). The zoom is pretty much unusable due to the lack of optical stabilization.
I would like to know if Sanyo has had a record of releasing firmware updates to add functionality to its cameras. For example, I would love to be able to record with the display closed or remove the horizontal flip when the display is pointed outwards. If they somehow manage to improve stabilization, even better.
The image also has too high contrast, which washes out a lot of stuff.
I got the camera for $200, so I can't really complain, but I just feel a few of these niggles can be fixed via software.
