  1. I'am thinking of one like the NEW Sony 1080i Camcorder. In that price
    range. Any work on any company makeing a cheapish one anytime soon.


    Thanks.

  3. Its upscaled to 1080p. Not a true 1080p camera. Correct me if iam
    wrong :)

    Byes.

    As you can read on another thread here, a true 720p is coming out in October
    at around $8,000.

  7. Because reading out all the lines of a CCD/CMOS in one go, is more
    complicated than just half that amount in interlaced. CCD/CMOS are designed
    with a certain power-consumption and heat generation in mind. If you
    require more, both rise, sucking batteries empty quicker, and making the
    electronics hot.
