Hi all, my first post here. Just picked up one of these camera's about a week ago, oustanding pq for a camcorder.

Agreed! Between the onboard 32gb and extra sd 32gb you've got about 5 hrs at max res. recording time, more than enough imo.
Not a wonder they dropped the battery consuming hdd.
Everything works fine in xp sp2 x86.
Have rolled of some 50p footage at Perth Airport, Au
as a quick test.
The raw footage was edited in vegas 10 using Sony's avchd at 1920 x 1080 x 25p. 50i might be better for this kind of fast movement.
Camera was set to iA, max OIS and hand held so not highly accurate pans. Keeping a speeding jet steady by hand with some zoom on takes a bit of practice!
Note the odd artifacts around the port wings at times, also a bit of jitter near and after touchdown in a couple of shots which I think is the OIS getting confused.
Will try again with tripod and no OIS.
With regard OIS, even with it turned off there's still some measure of shake suppression.
The audio is quite outstanding for a bunch of tiny mics built into the body!
