I like the fact that Samsung allows you to shoot in 720p, as it's much more useful for web usage than 1080i/p. I wish more camcorder manufacturers would have this as an option on their models, but AVCHD doesn't seem to offer any kind of support for lower resolutions at all. Oh well...

I know this is off topic but is there a chance of a Sanyo WH1 review soon?

Literally just got hold of the WH1 yesterday, so will be putting up a review in the next week or so. Watch this space!

I was set to buy one of these for a good discount but they and reviews failed to appear time and time again. I gave up waiting and bought a Canon HG20. Glad I did. Storage with a 60GB hard drive and upto 32GB SDHC is not an issue. With recent updates, Premiere Pro CS4 copes well with AVCHD and reducing that to 720p is not an issue.

Good bless you, you good man...

james-i'm stateside and found your site as it offers much more robust reviews than those that i have found here. i recently purchasing a macbook pro and am interested in a digital camcorder that takes advantage of that laptop. i understand that many of these cameras do not have firewire and i'm unable to locate much information regarding transfer speeds and such. at this time, i'm looking at something akin to the panasonic hds hs300 or the equivalent to your canon legria hf s10. do you have a review with that kind of information per chance? if not, would you drop me a note and let me know your advice? thanks very much for your thorough reviews - they have been very helpful in helping me to narrow down my decision!
