Using the Finder to burn the DVD allows better definitions, but restricts the DVD to computer display"Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.4.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 5, 2008 12:05 PM (in response to shorafix)Hi.
I bought the HD1000 for UW video as well and also just bought the Epoque EHS1000. I haven't used either yet and was wondering if you could tell me about your experiences with both. I'm really interested in what you have to say about the housing. Any leaks? How do the two work together? What are the pros and cons as you see them? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm still able to return one or both if I hear anything too negative. I have an FX1 but was looking for an inexpensive alternative for diving and travel (the weight factor you know...).
Thanks in advance.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2008 9:02 AM (in response to Estin)I just downloaded this decoder and it's working great. Thanks so much for posting this link--I was having a very hard time finding a solution for this issue. I'm not sure why it took me so long to think to come to the Apple discussion boards, but you can bet I'll be a regular visitor now.
Thanks again.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 3:02 AM (in response to Jim Demmers)We just returned from a trip to Cyprus. The Xacti worked fine for the first dives, until we decided to mount additional lights for wrack diving. Unfortunately, perhaps due to all that additional stuff, one of the clips was not closed and the housing leacked already when testing in a small pool of fresh water before we went off to the dive. It was just a very small amount of water leacking into the housing, however just enough to shorten the cameras electronics. I sent it in for repair but haven't heard anything about it from Sanyo so far.
Editing works fine with all those MPEG4 codecs installed, mentioned before. Transcoding MPEG4 into Apple intermediate takes a long time though even on a MacPro.MacPro (2008), Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2008 12:18 PM (in response to nekochancity)Don't know what went wrong on your system. However, I can read all of my "full-HD" clips @1080i (60 fps) from the Xacti 1000 HD with Quicktime and all QT compatible apps. I didn't bother much about "Voodoo" and just installed the available codecs from Apples homepage straight away. It worked out with no flaws on my MacPro (2008) as well as on my MacBookPro (2008). Sorry not to help you right away - but it should work!MacPro (2008), Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2008 1:59 PM (in response to Jerome Colas)thanks so much for this fix! it worked great for my friend and i.
i even made a video screencast walking through the steps as they are a little confusing.
thanks again!MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

O.K. this is a little bit off-topic but now I am free to look for a more Mac-like alternative.MacPro (2008), Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2008 11:00 PM (in response to JayRunquist)I have same camera, same problem as the original post. It looks like Quicktime 7.5.5 has fixed the problem - I can now view my 1080i video from the Sanyo Xacti on my mac.MacBook 2.2, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2008 7:11 PM (in response to Netra)Quicktime 7.5.5 will read the 1080i clips from HD1000, but they have serious problems and are jumpy - it is not a fix on my Macbook 2ghz 2gb. If I read this thread correctly, there is no 100% fix - except to shoot at 720p.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2008 9:23 PM (in response to JamieNYC)Use iMovie HD to play it. You need QT pro to play 1080i video smoothly. Ripoff. However, the Full HD part of QT still works in iMovie HD. Just put it in there. You should edit your videos anyway...iMac intel white, Mac OS X (10.5), Slick, iMovie HD, SANYO works!
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2008 4:08 PM (in response to Mac OS 9000)Yes I have a Sanyo Xacti HD1010, and I can now see the FULL HD (highest res for camera) movies in Quicktime (no green screen problem). However the audio and video skips and is jumpy when I view it in Quicktime... It works ok in IMovie. I paid $29 for Quicktime pro, and it does NOT solve the problem.
Any advice? I'd like to return my Quicktime pro since it did not help.IMac, Mac OS X (10.5.1), IPhone
Currently Being ModeratedOct 20, 2008 6:45 PM (in response to Fausto Fernos1)No you do not have to reformat it for iMovie 07 (yes I agree iMovie 08 is horrible).
For Youtube, you should make it a .mov by exporting it from iMovie 07. Youtube, for some reason, cannot read MP4 (I know, WHY NOT?!?!?!?).iMac intel white, Mac OS X (10.5), Slick, iMovie HD, SANYO works!
Currently Being ModeratedNov 25, 2008 2:46 PM (in response to rmartinca)Anything less than about a 2.4 ghz machine will not playback 1080i clips from the sanyo hd1000 or, I am pretty sure the newer hd1010. Best bet, use MPEGSTREAMCLIP to transcode your files to HDV, AIC or pro res, depending on your editing software. Batch encode overnight is best. If you really don't need 1080i or 1080P on this cam, I'd avoid it, stick with 720P. Its much easier to work with, view and transcode. FYI QT pro does a good job of making iphone files, pretty quick and overall sharper in my opinion than MPEGSTREAMCLIP, it's worth keeping. MPSC is good for batches and drafts of edits. Best of luck with your clips.MBP2.4ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 14, 2009 2:52 PM (in response to Adam Loretz)I have been waiting for a year to edit the footage i shot on my HD1000 and now find that when i import footage to IMOVIE only half of the clip imports.
