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

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

Good, Finally Decent sensors, hopefully will have a Decent Lens

just need the cheap guys to step up and make something the rest of us can afford that's almost identical

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.
