Pro-sumer 1-inch sensor? On-demand JPEG snapshots?

Sounds like that camcorder really was their 4K prototype...;)

Hi, just to clarify. Sonys FullHD cameras only work with two exposures @ 90dB except for the WR630 and WR632. Their HD720 models work with 4 exposures though. So this is basically the same spec as Sonys Full HD cameras and I agree this will probably be the best camera on the market.
