Sometimes we forget that there are so many codecs to record high-def with, but AVCHD is something real new as it was just announced back in May. This is a format developed by, you ready for this, Sony and Panasonic to be used in consumer level high-def camcorders. The format can record onto 8cm DVDs in the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 compression system which will give you a whopping 20 minutes of recording space. It seems that DVguru found out through CDFreaks that Sony is going to release a camcorder that takes advantage of this as soon as Wednesday.

So who wants to buy into another Sony format right off the bat? Anyone...
