"Oh you poor boy, you don't really have a clue now do you ? I have many 1080p60 family videos uploaded to youtube that could be seen by our family and friends that are set to private. I have 1080p60 videos burned to low cost DVD-Rs that play on my PS3 in slo-motion with sound. I have not tried 17mbit/sec 1080i60 but for you to call it crippled shows how clueless you are. BTW the TM700 with remote works great as a 1080p60 player on my four 1080p HDTVs in slo-motion etc. Try playing 1080p60 in slo-motion with the JVC HM1."
1. You had to convert the 60p videos before uploading, didn't you? If not, that is news. So they were not seeing your 60p videos converted on Youtube.
2. A DVD-R will hold 15 minutes of 60p video, tops. Why not burn to a blu-ray disk? It won't play in a regular Blu-ray player, but it will play on your PS3.
3. The 17mbits is inferior to the 24mbits of the Canon and HM1 in every dimension. If the TM700 had offered 24mbits AVCHD, instead of only 17mbits 24mbits, which is demonstrably better, they would have it all. So on the TM700 you must use an inferior mode (to 24mbits) to stay within the AVCHD spec. To not know, confirmed by camcorderinfo, why 17mbits is "crippled" indicates who is really "clueless."
4. slo-mo in 60p, 1080 is really nice.
It is not necessary to be so graceless. The TM700 is really working for you and that is great. I am pointing out the issues with 60p 1080 so that others will understand what they are in for and what they really get. To obtain really good video with the TM700 they must use the non-AVCHD spec 60p, and that has some limitations. We now know they can get equal motion, sharpness without 60p on the HM1 and avoid having to use the camera as a player, converting for youtube uploads, upgrading their computer, changing their editor, or buying a PS3.
To see what happens when someone buys the 60p snakeoil and is really clueless, see this pathetic thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1248285
This guy cannot play, edit or upload his TM700, 60p videos with his computer and is looking for free solutions! And none of the TM700 fanboys pushing 60p have helped him, because there is no cheap solution.
