Awesome Camera - Terrible Service STAY AWAY FROM SANYO PRODUCTS

Summary: I give Sanyo as a company -5 stars if I could. It's unfortunate, because I give the camera itself 5-stars. It's great. It delivers first rate video, so long as you stay away from the automatic settings. The video quality is comparable to my Canon T2i DSLR. My issue comes with the service.
Summary: Good camera overall but image stabilization is the real issue. The most basic videos have noticeable shake to them. The video quality other than the shake is very good. I bought it for iFrame but when I tried it the video quality was not very good.
Summary: Have owned for a year plus now. I like the pistol grip design and the camera offers many features and am generally satisfied. On the negative side I find the anti-shake not nearly as good as I would have wished (a friends Sony seems to perform much better).
Summary: So far I have found my experience with the VPC-HD2000 very frustrating; though I suppose this is just my PC. The big problem is that the only possible output file format is MPEG4 and my PC can't cope with it. (Not that it's a slouch - Vista 32bit Home Basic / Pentium D 2.8GHz / 2GB RAM).
Summary: Works OK, great design but can't get it to play on computer in RealPlayer or Quicktime (forget about Windows Media Player). Managed to get video off camcorder onto TV but no idea if copied video files are Ok on computer.
Summary: This camcorder takes superb video in good and poor lighting, the stills are fine if you dont want to carry two cameras and I personally find it good to handle. It has the ability to take stills without switching modes as is required on all of my previous cams and this is a god send.
