->> I love this idea, but without an external mic jack, I'm gonna have to pass. So far the videos I've seen from this camera have been shot in extremely quiet nature settings or had loud music on top of the track. I'm thinking that's because anything shot in normal everyday photo-J circumstances is unusable.
Disclaimer: I am a Nikon shooter and my everyday camera is a D3 which is the best camera I've ever had the pleasure of holding, so pls do not chalk this up as a disgruntled Canon guy.

Mark, I agree with you, I think this is just the first step in what is going to be coming to a camera store near you in the near future.

->> I thought I read early on that it didn't have a "MIC" but I guess was wrong-

"Movies can even be played on the camera with sound, thanks to its uniquely powerful speaker / microphone system."
-the quote is about half way down under "Live and Living"

here's video with ambient sound from the same review-

I am definitely tempted!

->> David,

It has a built-in speaker and microphone but it doesn't have provisions for an external mic -- something that is mandatory for most professional-level work.

->> Definitely a step in the right direction. One could always record to a flash drive with external mic and sync the sound with the video using the old "clapper" method. Those of us with consumer mini-DVs are familiar with that technique since professional sound is often lacking on these camcorders anyway. Additionally, with a fast lens, this could be used in place of the ridiculously expensive 35mm adapters often used to obtain shallow depth of field. I predict this camera and it's future mutations will be big sellers.

->> Gotta wonder how you could use this D-Movie as a remote. Of course this camera could be opening a new can of worms too.
