Looked at the sample in the review and really thought it looked very jumpy, like a flip-page book. Bad sample, or indicative of the quality? Are there other movie samples posted to take a look at? Thanks!

H1 owners, no opinions on the video clips?

check out the sample movies from other Sony cam reviews. As far as I know, Sony's "VX Fine" movie mode (640 x 480 pixles @ 30 FPS w/ MPEG 1) is identical in all Sony cams that have it (ex, H1, W1/5/7, V3, P100, T1/5/7, ad nauseum) (The M1 being an expception because it uses MPEG4).

As I recall, whenI bought my W1 in mid-2004, Sonys VX fine movie mode was ahead of the pack. Im not sure where it stands today but Ive heard comments that it's over-compressed. There was a thread in this forum a while back speculating that it's actually 320x240 interpolated to 640x480.

If you compare the H1 sample video against sample vid from the canon s2 IS, the video from the canon is clearly superior, but it also consumes more memory per recording time.

There's another thread somewhere (in steve's forums) documenting all [email protected] fps cams. search.... hope this helps.
