My personal thoughts is that the 720 p clip looks clean and sharp for 720p but the clip labeled 1080p is really only 720p at 60 fps so I have a feeling that is why it looks a little jagged around the edges. Color in the last shot of 1080 looks amazing. And I think the original clip probably looked really good until it got poorly compressed. Hope to see some more accurate footage later.

Any thoughts?

Wow. Just wow. That looks far better than I would have expected. I thought the camera was just going to be a HD DVX100 but these seems to have a much more film-like gamma curve and wider lattitude. It easily tops anything I've seen from the CanonXL2.

David, don't you mean the XL-H1? Not sure how fair it is to compare an HD camera to a MiniDV camera like the XL2.

The footage looks great--especially considering it is compressed even further from the HD codecs. I'd love to see some native footage if someone has the bandwidth to host it.
