    I'm really looking forward to the new AC130, but if anyone needs an AVCHD 3-1/3" chipper right now, that's capable of recording essentially the same image detail as the HMC40, there's the Sony's...

    HV20 For Sale

    My son asked me to sell his HV20 for him. He pampered it, and it's in excellent condition - darn close to as good as new. Here's a link to the listing in the classified's here:

    It's in the official announcement, 10th paragraph: "...HDMI output (AVCHD only)..." - pretty odd me thinks.

    I'll look to see if I can find it again - really struck me as pretty dang odd, so I don't think I'm imagining reading it.

    The AC130 really should deliver the sharper image of the HMC40/80, with low light capability that should match or exceed the HMC150 (which i consider to be a lightweight, as far as resolving image...

    I'd have to look again to be certain, but I think I read somewhere in Panny's literature, that the output from the HDMI port was "AVCHD". I assume that's a sloppy way to say that the images coming...

    I'd start getting interested in the HMC150 at close to $2250 also. Frankly, I don't consider it a true 1080 line camcorder (it simply doesn't come close to resolving that much image detail,...

    If you can crank the gain on the 130/160 all the way up to 12dB, and still get a pretty clean image like you can with the HMC40 (which still amazes me), these cameras could be low-light beasts in...

    AVCHD camcorders record 4:2:0 color. It's part of the AVCHD spec (that's "official"). If it recorded 4:2:2 color, then it would NOT be AVCHD, by definition - no need for Panny to say anymore than...

    Well, I finally got my eBay VBG6 clone from Hong Kong. It doesn't seat well enough, mounted on my HMC40. It's just loose enough that the camera loses power momentarily when the camera is tilted...

    Don't get me wrong. YouTube is great for being able to share video, but it's absolutely, utterly worthless for any sort of production quality comparison/analysis.

    Whatever the source was, it's 4:2:0 after YouTube re-encodes it (rather brutally). For all practical purposes, you can get footage out of a cheap consumer HDV camcorder (in the right hands) that will...

    I'm dreaming of Panasonic introducing an HMC45 and an HMC85 this coming spring at NAB, with two features added to what's offered in the 40 and 80: 1080p60 recording @ 35Mbps (call it a "pro" bitrate...

    I'd sure rather have the ability to record more than 2 discrete audio channels using external mics than screw around with 3D.

    Amazon might be your best bet. Be careful to only buy cards actually sold directly by Amazon though, not by some third party via Amazon (to avoid counterfeit cards).

    Grant,

    Reducing the "detail" setting does not soften the image. The "detail" setting controls how much edge enhancement (aka sharpening) is applied to the image by the camera. You can do the same...

    There's a (huge) difference, between getting footage that will look best straight out of the camera, or getting footage that gives you the most flexibility to work with in post.

    The 24p is true progressive video recorded in a 60i stream. You simply need to do reverse telecine in post Dan. Then you won't see what looks like interlace artifacts.
