So glad I found this site today. I've been on an endless search for info on the upcoming camcorders from all manufacturers. Too bad someone hasn't done a camcorder comparison website like snapsort did for regular cameras. Anyway, I was coming to the site to see what everyone thought of the v700, but I think I'm sold now. The frustrating thing it seems these days is finding a camera with the specs you want. I want the smallest camera, HD 60p, SD Card, widest angle possible, and a big sensor for low light capabilities. I narrowed it to the panny v700, the jvc gz gx1 and the sony cx760. The sony is almost 3x as expensive at the v700 and is bigger.
Anyway, came to say thanks. I'll let you know how the camera works out when I get it.
