Good idea. Hmm...Anyone know what the size limit is on nvnews for uploads / attachments?

What about Rapidshare or MegaUpload?

FWIW, as far as small devices like still cameras, video cameras, mp3 players, and others go, I always tell my customers to stay away from Sony. Sony DVD players and TV's are fine, but everything else Sony just f*cks with in some way or another and they tend to favor these awkward software and hardware solutions over the industry norms.

For example, the industry norm in digital cameras is SD cards. Sony uses memory stick. Their mp3 players often don't have mass storage support, instead opting for this goofy software package that they claim is better. Little things like that which don't seem big initially, but if you ever make a hobby out of your camera or whatever, they can turn out to be a huge drawback.

With camcorders, they don't use their own formats. They are using the AVCHD format for their HD camcorders, which Canon, Panasonic, and everyone uses.

You guys are both right to some extent. Whille Canon and Panasonic have AVCHD, the Sony version of it is different somehow. The Canon AVCHD format will not work in the Sony Vegas software.

The camera is excellent quality, but I'd say it's for advanced users, so AlphaWolf_HK is wise to tell average users to use something else.

Ok, guys, here are two sample videos for you. One is direct from the camera and is the native AVCHD format, so unless you have PowerDVD installed it will probably not play for you. The second video is in WMV format (little to no loss of quality that I can tell) for everyone to see.

This was taken indoors in a local aquarium with less than bright lighting. It may not be the best sample, but the other clips are huge!
