Agreed - I found another review that said sensor and processor were the same so image quality should be the same as the original. Will be a missed opportunity if thats the case I think, would be nice if they have bumped it at least a little.
Actually their dealer spec's state differently than the Sony video. The video says 1080@60i and the specs say 60p. It will also have the multi-terminal which may mean it will work with the HYPEYE using the AV to multi converter.
There are two protocols possible on the Multi connector so lets hope they are backwards compatible with the old AV/R protocol.
Guess we will have to wait for the official launch!
This camera does not use the multi terminal port for anything but USB connectivity and charging. The Sony Multi Terminal Remotes do not work to control video, power, or photo operations.
With "stabilization on" the camera has a rolling shutter issue with skydiving and shake. With it off, it is not so bad but the color is really mute and blotchy in comparison to the HERO3. This may be because its not as stock saturated as the hero3 but don't think so at first look. I will try and get some comparison videos edited shortly.
However, I do like the form factor and the single button on the back is kinda nice. I wasn't a big fan of the segmented LCD vs. graphical but realize they are doing that for power consumption (which still kills the hero3/+). An led indicator in front would be nice so you don't have to have someone behind you tell you its recording.
I'll post links once I have something rendered

Some of the guys at my Dz have been jumping them for the last month or so. BLOWS the Gopro out of the water ( In MY opinion, mind you). Colors are super nice and real-looking ( I always found the Gopro to be a bit on the yellow side :D). I liked it so much that I actually picked one myself. Gonna take it snowboarding this weekend and scuba diving to Marocco next month. Hopefully by Xmas when i get home I'll have enough jumps to jump it myself and Ill show you guys some beach jumps with it :)
I forgot! By lcd you mean the actual watch - controller -viewfinder thingy or the handycam-transforming attachment? I have been looking for the Watch thingy for a while like crazy but Its not out ( At least in Europe) till december the 6th :(
Im actually looking forward to it and to DSE making a review / comparison epic video. Been following that guy since I found his 2011 PIA interviews in youtube when I was doing my research for which container to buy. Man is a legenD!
