New camera in da house

I got a new digital camera today, the Panasonic LX2. I love this camera because it is able to shoot 16:9 HD video (1280×720 at 15 fps). By default it’s configured to shoot EDTV video (848×480 at 30 fps). Right click the picture below to save and view the video I just shot in my messy office. I re-encoded it as MP4 at 1 Mbps (I kept the original resolution and fps). Pretty cool!

As high def cameras go the price isn’t that much different to the Sanyo VPC-HD1 flash camcorder (in the UK – and shortly to be replaced by the HD2 IIRC). I’m still holding off buying a high def camcorder until there are a few more on the market and the price drops. :)

Well, you are referring to camcorders, while this one is a actually a digicam that is able to shoot HD. For camcorders, I would go with Canon’s HV20, hands down. Best HD consumer camcorder model in the market today.

Yes, my office is really messy. The floor is full of boxes with review hardware in them. There is only 1 fish left. Alive and kicking, it will outlive us all.

Nice. :)

Do you have a 1280×720 sample you could share?

720p video recording is at 15fps, so I didn’t bother yet. Although you could download this 720p sample from the same model camera.
