Do you want 1080p for a specific technical reason? Or just the 1920 x 1080 resolution which you can get with 1080i as well?

Also, when you say "1080p", do you mean 24p, 30p, or 60p?

Most people that ask for 1080p don't really know what that means - they just want good hi-def PQ. I would respond accordingly unless the OP demonstrates otherwise.

You'll definitely want to do a lot of reading on this topic. 24p is kind of a "cinema-look" mode so it's arguable whether the average person should have any interest in it at all. Those who want it want it badly - those who aren't going for that specific look probably get no value out of it, and maybe a little harm (slower frame rate than standard DVD or home video).

I can recommend the Panasonic hdc-hs700

HDD 240gb

1080p60

(Cinema mode and 1080i also available)

Best performance in class (just my prediction)

A lot of the sony options are "i" only (i.e. interlaced).


Is that 5 hours continuous and on battery only? A lot of stock batteries are in that 1 to 2 hour range per charge. Some have bulky aftermarket batteries rated up to 4 hours. So if you're looking for 5 hours of continuous recording on a battery only, it might not be a realistic expectation. Now there are options to do time lapse for that duration. And many models give you a standby mode to tide the time between shots without drawing too much battery life so if you don't need continuous or record times of that length per battery change, that's doable.


An HDD camcorder isn't always the best option. HDDs tend to be a battery suck. And there's lighter, lower power consumption, and more reliable equivalents these days (internal / external flash).


There's only two camcorder manufacturers (consumer grade) that offer 1080p60 at the moment. So it depends on what you mean by 1080p. 1080p24? 1080p30? 1080p60? 1080p25 (PAL)? 1080p50?
