. I do not understand what you are talking about. You have lots of choices, from pocket cameras with big zooms, waterproof pocketable cameras and camcorders, mid-range camcorders. Just go the Panasonic and Sony web sites for all the choices. Almost none have any controls for video in fact and almost all do 108060p.
I suppose my frustration is fused by the fact that the G30 is Cannon's only option for 1080/60p image... I've been a Cannon user since '08, and none of their consumer grade cameras can deliver 1080p, which boggles my mind.
1080p TV's have been around for many-many years, so I'm skeptical (as a casual consumer) about a camcorder that can deliver true 1080p... I don't know if I should wait for the G30 & bust a nut on it, or just save $1,000 and get a Sony/Panasonic. The reviews are so average at best, I don't know what to do being a noob!
* It is Canon, not Cannon. One might think that five years should be enough to learn the name of the brand one is loyal to.
* Canon makes many consumer cameras that can deliver 1080p, but most of these are not 60p.
* Again, what is "delivering true 1080p" to you? If you want 1920x1080 unique pixels in every frame, then you will never get this from compressed video. If you are talking about format, then most recent camcorders can do it. Just do your homework.
* The Pioneer TVs were mostly recognized for superior deinterlacing, the feature that becomes completely redundant if you feed it with progressive signal. Could as well have a Vizio.
* If you are skeptical why asking for an advice? The HF10 is a great cam, but any 2-3 year old Panasonic will kill it resolution-wise.
