Default Sanyo Xacti HD2000ABK

I have been seeking this particular Sanyo model because of it's MAC capabilities for my daughter and son-in-law with our first grandchild and find it out of stock most every where, including Sanyo. Does anyone have any info on this, including when it will be available? I have found only one thru Amazon at a rip-off price of $999.

Thanks, all!

Welcome to the forums.

If you're talking about having an iFrame compatible format available, I see that shown in the description for a number of other Sanyo models now. For example, scroll down through this list of products at B&H and you'll see that in some of their descriptions:

P.S.

But, I'm not so sure it's a great idea to use that format if you want higher quality videos, as from what I can find out about the format, it's a 960x540 resolution video at 30fps (which is well below the higher resolution videos that newer cameras are capable of recording). That's probably the reason that Samsung appears to be the only camcorder manufacturer that has that format available (because most users probably want higher quality videos now).

So, you may want to look into alternative solutions instead. BTW, here's an iMovie 2009 page with information about camcorder support that you may want to browse through (last updated June 2010):

Know that Apple's iFrame is 1/4 the resolution of a 1080 image. (see below)

This is 1920x1080



This is iFrame 960x540

And this is Apple's iFrame comparison when you refer to 1080 resolution
